I have received the "Raku" Japanese platform bed queen size, last Friday by UPS (just 3 weeks after ordering it!) I wanted to tell you that I am very pleased with it. The quality of the product is just great, and that reddish walnut finish provides the perfect color to match the other pieces of furniture I already have in that room. It was very well wrapped (and individually wrapped) for such a long risky distance. It just looks so great!!! Thank you also for your pleasant co-operation.

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 nights 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 three 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.

No particle board -All Natural Materials- simple and harmonious construction: The Raku Japanese Platform Bed. Just Right! 

The Raku Tatami bed is unique in that it incorporates two Japanese Tatami mats as a platform surface. Tatami mats have been used for hundreds of years in Japan as a floor covering or bed surface. Our Tatami mats have been updated for modern use and are constructed of 4 layers of natural rice straw sheets,  and then covered with a Grade #1, tightly-woven rush straw, sewn to the base layers. The tatami covering of soft, woven rush straw cures over time to a golden hue. You may experience a light, pleasant, natural aroma as the tatami cures.

Raku Bedroom

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.

Or if you would prefer, take away the tatami mats, place them on the floor for a sitting, meditation area, or tea area, and rest your mattress directly on the slats. Either way, you are creating the perfect sleeping environment, by allowing air to circulate throughout the mattress and sleeping area, an essential element of our Total Sleep Care System.

In today's world which can be sometimes be described by the words fast-paced, hectic, intruding, stressful, hurried, cluttered, it can be good to take a break and to indulge in the simple pleasures afforded by our Japanese Raku bed. Try out these words, simple, soothing relaxing, restful. All these words are easy to enjoy with our Raku Tatami Bed.
