Black Oak Kulu – Modern Platform Bed

from £1,505

Less is more! The simple, sculptural design of the low Kulu platform bed makes the most of the solid oak it’s crafted from. This combination of a natural finish with elements stained almost matte black makes for a unique option for your bed base. It’s shown here in solid Oak in various colour-ways.

The Black Oak Kulu is available in the following variations:
Option 1 – Solid oak – all stained black (bed base, headboard and side tables)
Option 2 – Solid oak – the base and headboard are stained black with oak side tables in a natural finish (see the third image in the gallery)
Option 3 – Solid oak – the base and tables are in natural oak, the oak headboard is stained black (see the main image above)

Please see the tabs below for further information on this design, including dimensions, lead time and timber options etc.

The Black Oak Kulu is a modern platform bed. Pictured here in solid oak, it offers the option to stain various elements with a soft, almost matte black lacquer. You can choose to stain the entire bed for a highly contemporary look, or leave the fixed bedside table platforms in the natural oak finish to draw attention to this detail. Our favourite combo? A natural oak base and side tables, with the headboard element stained black. The choice is yours!

Every bed is made to order. Our current lead-time is currently around 8 weeks (+ delivery).

The fixed side tables make a handy space for your bedtime reading or an alarm clock. Each fixed side-table measures 24 x 35cm. The price includes a pair.

Take a look at our timbers page for more information and to order timber samples.

Lacquer Finish: Our ‘natural’ look lacquer finish, named for its clarity, allows you to appreciate the myriad colours and subtle variations in tone of natural timber. It retains a very subtle, soft sheen which protects the timber from grease marks and some stains.

All our platform wooden beds are fitted with sprung beech slats for extra comfort and to increase the life of your mattress.
