If it’s your first time or first year living on your own, you might still have your mattress on the floor. But take it from us — that doesn’t exactly cast the grown-up vibes you’re looking to send, girl. Enter The Floyd Platform Bed, the piece of furniture that could finally make you get your mattress off the ground (7 1/2 inches off the ground, to be exact).
Creators Floyd Furniture, who previously saw success on Kickstarter with a lightweight and attachable furniture leg called the Floyd Leg, which turns any flat surface into a table top, are now continuing the minimalist modular standard they’re known for with the Floyd Platform Bed. The furniture comes with just two types of pieces, which means this might be easier to assemble than any IKEA product. The wood panel platform, made with honeycomb cores and finished in real birch veneer, looks sleek and modern — just what your city apartment needs. And they’re sturdy too: The panels are made using NASA-tested technology, while the support pieces, available in black or white, are made of steel. Have adult furniture and jump on it like a kid. What’s not to love?
For assembly, the support legs slide on without much fuss and the straps underneath provide just the right amount of tension to keep the construction stable and steady. The entire frame is modular, so it’s easy to expand from a twin bed to a king as your lifestyle changes. The idea here is that this could actually be the first and last bed frame you ever buy.
The bed was recently funded on Kickstarter and is currently available for pre-order: a Twin platform for $435, a Queen-size for $495 and a King for $625. The prices aren’t that bad when you consider that this is definitely a long-term investment that will be so freaking easy to move from apartment to apartment. Add this to your How to Feel like a Grown Up Pinboard ASAP.
