Much of classical Japanese bed design is characterized by the principles of simplicity, elegance, and the Zen aspect of harmony with nature, all essential components found in many of our Japanese platform beds. Japanese beds both traditionally and also in modern designs are often low to the ground, and simple in style and adornment. In addition as the judicious use of space is essential in the Japanese home, furniture was created to maximize the sleeping space while at the same time taking up a small footprint in the room. Beds were often created with simple headboards or often with no headboard, and with side rails and foot rails made of lesser width. All of these features help create the look and feel of balance, simplicity, and harmony. Learn More +
