Seemingly Floating Bed with Book Storage Space by Lago

While the kitchen is said to be the heart of the home, the fact is that the room that you are most likely to spend the most time in, is the bedroom. Most people spend a third of their lives in their bedrooms and it is important that the room is decorated and furnished in a way which gives you, and possibly your partner if you have one, a sense of peace, tranquillity and an ambience that will promote a good night’s sleep. There’s a well-known expression that one “floats off to sleep”. There is a new bed design which is catching the eyes of design commentators called the floating bed design. A few firms are making these types of bed, the most noted being by a company called Lago.
It’s called a floating bed design because it has minimalist features and because the “legs” are a thick transparent slabs of a Perspex-like material that you can see through. Hence it appears to be floating or hovering above the surface of your bedroom floor. Very science fiction you may think! It’s great for light bright modern bedrooms and shows off its best if the bedroom also is minimalist. In other words not cluttered up with wardrobes, dressers, chest of drawers, tables, entertainment centres etc. In fact if you were to have some hidden lighting, like a coloured LED strip, underneath the bed, the effect created would be sensational!
One of the features that is practical as well as good looking is a book storage space that can be included in the floating bed. This is an important feature if the rest of the room is not to be cluttered with storage items: You can store some books and magazines into storage unit and it does not detract from the floating appearance and the design. The design looks fabulous with a blue headboard, black mattress and pillows, and a light purple bookcase on the lower left angle.
To be sure this out-of-this-world bed is a stylish piece of furniture designed in typical Lago manner. It was first introduced at Milan Design week and was created by Daniele Lago. Will it float your particular boat? In a modern setting, the answer must be- yes! It would not go so well in an older country house type home, or one where there are many original features from an Edwardian or Victorian home. !930s onwards, you’ll have no trouble integrating the floating bed. It also has to be said that in order to appreciate the design and effect of “floating” the bedroom has to be large as well as uncluttered. This is most definitely not suitable for a box room!
One thing is for certain, if you have a suitable room and surroundings, you’ll feel like you are climbing onto a cloud as you get into bed, and this should send you off to the land on Nod in style! And when you wake up in the morning, reach to the end of the bed and grab a book or magazine from the storage part of this clever design.
