Asia Platform Bed
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.
