Few pieces of furniture in today's modern bedroom are as popular or as aesthetically pleasing as a simple platform bed. However, never one to be outdone, we at Haiku Designs have stepped it up a notch. Meet the new bed of your dreams: the Kanal Canopy Platform Bed!   

Combining the romance of a canopy bed with the clean, minimalist structures of modern Asian décor, our new canopy platform bed is a visual delight. The overall effect is a simple box silhouette, which adds drama to the room while maintaining an airy, open feel. It is finished in a stunning Mocha color, which adds notes of opulence and grandeur to any room.

The Kanal Canopy Platform Bed is so perfectly proportioned that the overall effect remains light, airy, and open despite the dark, rich color of the wood. Rather than exuding the heavy effect of traditional canopy beds, the uncluttered lines of the posts and beams emphasizes the negative space of the area within its borders. Whether or not your choose to adorn the beams, this lovely bed will help make your room appear larger, not smaller.

The Kanal was designed with the ideal headboard height, which anchors the overall structure while providing the perfect backrest for a quiet evening catching up on classic literature. (Or a late night bingeing guilty pleasures on Netflix – hey, it happens to the best of us.) 

Anchoring the bed on all four sides are solid posts and connecting canopy beams, which can be left unadorned or draped in something lovely like perhaps an Asian silk print fabric. For added privacy, hang sheer muslin or a more opaque, natural fabric from the overhead beams, to create your own secret oasis.

A Natural & Eco-friendly Choice 

This wonderful piece is constructed entirely of solid wood and wood composites, then finished with a painstakingly detailed six-step process that results in a rich luster that begs to be touched. This high quality finish meets the exacting standards of the California Off Gas emissions standards – the strictest standards in this country for controlling toxic emissions. Not only will you rest easy on your luxurious new bed, you'll also breathe easy knowing that your environment is free of harmful toxins.

The craftsmanship of this bedroom set is unparalleled. It's constructed with sunken, bolt-through rails and traditional bore and dowel reinforcement, which results in a strong, rigid structure that will last for many years. 

It is also a true platform bed, meaning it's built with a slat system that connects to the side rails, eliminating the need for a box spring. This system ensures that air circulates properly throughout the night, helping to regulate body temperature and drastically reduce the chances of accumulating dust mites or other harmful allergens. 

Perfectly complementing this incredibly lovely bed is an entire suite of matching furniture that will serve every conceivable purpose. The matching nightstands feature a sleek, contemporary design and provide two roomy drawers to hold all your nighttime necessities. The Kanal Dresser boasts six drawers, and is crafted of high quality corner-blocked and bottom-braced drawer construction. The drawers also have hefty metal glide rails with ball bearing sliders, so they will hold up to years of constant use. The Kanal High Chest is another option, which is an excellent choice for more compact, urban bedrooms. The High Chest offers all the premium construction features of the other pieces, like dovetail joint construction and metal gliders – but you'll enjoy all the storage space of six drawers while using a mere 36 by 22 inches of floor space.
