We used to buy a ton of throw away furniture. The lesson we've learned? Invest in well designed, well-made, quality pieces that will last you years. Your future self will thank you.
A bed should be one of these pieces. Finding one that ticks all the boxes is time-consuming and those reviews make for terrible bedtime reading. It should be the right size, height, color, fit and design, sturdy, and built with high-quality material that lasts - if you want it to have it for years.
Our editors have done a lot of research into the best beds out there and have uncovered a lot of beds that seem good but are pretty much just clones of each other. Recently, a new, innovative bed came on the market that intrigued us, The Bed, by Thuma. Its minimalist wooden design instantly caught our eye. And once we heard about its Japanese inspired craftsmanship and 5-minute assembly, we had to try it out.
We expected The Bed, by Thuma to be much the same as the other beds we've had in the past, but we were so wrong. After using it for the last two months it is now #1 on our bed-to-buy list. Here are just 5 reasons why.
1. Timeless Design
The bed will look gorgeous in any bedroom. It's evident that so much time went into its design, with smooth curved edges and extra under-the-bed storage. The Thuma PillowBoard adds the finishing touch with two interchangeable and washable linen-weave covers.
2. Quality Materials
Thuma features genuine wood with natural walnut coloring for The Bed - no veneers, or MDFs - it's built to last a lifetime. If you've only ever had a flimsy, creaky bed you will immediately feel and love the difference.
3. Simple Assembly
If you've ever self-assembled any pieces at home - the indecipherable instructions and sorting through the hardware scattered about your carpet - then you will seriously appreciate The Bed. One person can assemble it in 5-ish minutes. With the Japanese joinery, each bar locks into the adjacent bar at the leg - no screws, drilling, or hardware!
Then the slats simply lock into place. When it's time to move, disassembly is just as easy. And it comes in separate boxes so they are easy to carry and transport into your home. No pivoting an oversized box up a staircase, or through a tight doorway.
4. Environmentally friendly
The Bed is composed of up-cycled rubberwood and mindfully selected materials such as eco-friendly felt made from recycled plastics. The boxes are made from recycled cardboard and the packaging uses no styrofoam.
The Bed wins on sturdiness for sure. It will withhold any and all bedroom activities. But the best part is no more awful creaky noises! The Japanese joinery and cushion lined slats ensure not just durability, but also sound reduction. So, no noise as you snuggle down into your favorite sleeping position and drift off to sleep.
If you are in the market for a new bed and value simplicity, stunning design, and convenience, The Bed, by Thuma is for you. With a lifetime guarantee, it will be the last bed you ever have to buy. The perfect investment piece, that really pays off!
