While a modernist 4 poster bed seems a contradiction in terms,it does make for a very striking minimalist 4 poster bed, in the style of Gerrit Rietveld. The design forms part of the range with the beds above. The bed could just be supplied as a standard double bed.

We have shown the bed in 2 colourways; grey with white head and foot boards (apologies, some of Hendrix's 'purple haze' crept into the lighting on this one !). Or painted as the 'Red Blue' chair which formed the inspriation for the black version. It could look very 'crisp' with the addition of white muslin drapes.

The bed is intended to act as a frame only for a divan base and mattress ( rather than to be supported on slats. Some straight forward home assembly is required.

We adapted the 4 poster bed above for a client who wanted a similar bed, but 'easier & softer on the eye'. The design was modified a bit as well. The whole was painted white, with a padded white headboard. This just shows how you can adapt these designs any way you want.
