In Japan, Raku can be translated as "comfort” or “simple comfort", and our Japanese Raku bed is the perfect expression of simple comfort. In a practical sense, this translates into a bed-frame that is easy to assemble and yet so secure in its assembly that it won’t come apart by sliding it into a new location. Also referred to as the Tatami bed, and available with or with out grass straw Tatami mats; the Raku bed embodies the Zen principle of simplicity, both in its style and its harmony with nature. This type of Japanese furniture as well as much of Japanese interior design expresses a theme that is pleasing to the senses, and a harmony in look and feel that is balanced, and welcoming.

Harmony is defined by Webster as a “pleasing or congruent arrangement of parts”. Two synonyms for harmony are tranquility and unity. Milieu therapy is a term that refers to the way a person or a family can organize and decorate their domestic environment to create the most harmonious conditions to maintain a deeper sense of wellbeing. One could say that furniture is the most basic element for creating a harmonious home filled with beauty and a sense of peace. Haiku Designs takes these principles seriously, offering bedroom furniture, dining-room furniture, gifts, and accessories sets that will easily foster the aesthetic unity that can turn your home into a place of tranquility after a long day at work or a short moment of chaos.

Great Furniture Design is said to be timeless in look, and it seems that statement is true now more than ever as we have discovered that our Asia Platform bed is still a best seller in the 22nd century. At least it seems so according to the Movie “Star Trek - Into Darkness”.
Upon viewing the movie, right after the title of the film, about 10 minutes into the movie, one can see our Asia modern style bed featured prominently in this early scene. Featuring a simple, but modern design that looks good in almost any room, or home environment, the low profile, sleek, Asia bed offers an attractive appeal that doesn’t steal the scene, so to speak.
