Platform Beds by The Furniture Authority

When flat is In Style!

Platform beds are perfect for those who want a simple and minimalist look for their bedroom. Platform beds' appeal lies in their low-profile sleeping surface, simple lines and sleek design. These are beds whose base consists of a raised, flat, hard, horizontal surface meant to support a mattress. Platform beds provide firm cushioning and with the support of slats, they eliminate the need for a box spring or mattress foundation. Add to it the fact that the space beneath the platforms can be used as storage, and it's little wonder then that their popularity has been on the rise recently.

The Furniture Authority has a huge range to help you find the perfect bed to suit your every style need and budget. Our offerings include platform beds in wood, metal or leather. In wood, you can choose from some fantastic, exclusive, classic Italian designs from the leaders in Europe for high-end, sophisticated and contemporary furnishing. There is also an innovative range in transitional furniture with products manufactured to the highest standard using top quality, 100% kiln dried tropical hardwoods and veneers for beds to ensure strength and longevity. The wood finishes are applied by hand producing a rich finish. Another unique option in wood is the eco-friendly furniture from sustainable pine. This range, in unfinished wood, is highly functional and cost-effective.

A wood platform bed gives the bedroom a simple look and a feeling of being with nature. The low physical profile of a contemporary platform bed goes well with other low-set furniture such as low coffee tables, dressers and other bedroom furnishings. Besides being sturdy and strong, metal platform beds score over wood as they require far less maintenance; no more repainting or re-staining. Metal platform bed frames are made of tubular or sheet steel. Sometimes, for effect, platform bed frames can also have headboards and footboards, as well.

Modern platform beds in sleek shapes can compliment practically any decor, whether it's contemporary, traditional or transitional. Simplicity makes a strong statement with a sophisticated leather platform bed.

The ever-popular Queen platform beds or King platform beds offer a practical solution with a modern design. These beds save you money since no box spring is required and generally the slatted platform frames have a center support to prevent sagging. Often platform beds have under bed storage drawers for an enclosed cabinet effect, to store bed linen, pillows, and various other items at your convenience.
Platform beds come in various sizes, including Twin, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King. In the USA, Twin is also known as Single (38" x 75"), Full as Double (53" x 75"), Queen as Queen-size (60" x 80"), King as Eastern King (76" x 80") and Cal King as California King (72" x 84"). Cal King size beds, generally for tall people, are typically 12" wider than a Queen-size bed and 4" longer.
