There are three great models in this family of low beds, all the same style but at different heights. The tallest is the Kyoto bed, a similar style to the Kobe but higher; the Kyoto is tall enough to accommodate under-bed drawers. The third related low bed is the Kumo which sits between the Kobe and the Kyoto: it’s higher than the Kobe, but lower than the Kyoto.

Lacquer Finish: We have changed our wood lacquer finish from ‘clear’ to ‘natural’. Our new ‘natural’ lacquer finish has been named for it’s clarity, it allows you to appreciate the myriad colours and subtle variations in tone of natural timber. It retains a subtle, soft sheen which protects the timber from grease marks and some stains. It is still possible to order your furniture with the original ‘clear’ finish – please request this when ordering. To find out more please take a look at our blog – New Lacquer Finish.
