Raku Tatami Platform Bed
In Japan, Raku can be translated as "Comfort” or “Simple Comfort", and our Japanese Tatami platform bed is the perfect expression of simple comfort. Simple as in easy to set up and enjoy, comfort as in lay back and relax. Embodying the Zen principles of simplicity in style, and in harmony with nature, our unique line of Japanese style contemporary platform beds incorporate design themes that are both comfortable to the senses and pleasing to the eye.
In addition, the Raku Tatami Platform beds are an Eco- Friendly product. What this means is that the Raku Tatami Bed is constructed in a manner that is less harmful to the environment than many other furniture products on the market today. To begin with, the Raku bed is made from solid Para wood and does not contain any particle board or chipboard and the whole list of toxic compounds associated with that type of construction. In addition, Para wood is a sustainably produced wood, meaning wood that is farmed and managed as opposed to a wood sourced from virgin forests.

Secondly, the bed uses a type of stain and finish that once applied is inert, meaning it does not off-gas toxic fumes into the sleeping environment, resulting in a healthier night's rest.
And lastly, the bed frame does not use any nails, screws or steel dowels for assembly. Instead, the corners are joined together by means of an ingenious slot-locking system that is simple, sturdy, and easy to put together and take down. The middle rail does utilize steel bolts to secure the middle legs and rail to the bed frame creating a strong and extra sturdy foundation for the natural finished, solid wood slats, upon which the Tatami mats are placed.
The eco-friendly properties of the Raku can be further bolstered by the use of Tatami grass mats as a replacement for a box spring (grass mats sold separately). Placed on the slat platform structure of the Raku bed, our Tatami mats are the ideal surface upon which to place a latex, memory foam, or futon mattress, or any style of mattress, even a Shiki Sleeping Mat. The Tatami mats eliminate the need for a box spring. Overall, regardless of whether or not you choose to utilize Tatami mats, the Raku bed is an essential element of our Total Sleep Care System that promotes harmonious rest in the home.
