A Bed To Drift In

Driftbed_lo_res_2San Francisco designer Ted Boerner is all about comfort. If there can be comfort foods, he asserts, then there should be "comfort furniture;" furniture that invites you to dine solo or feast with friends, or just flop on a bed to relax. With "Drift" the design is “all about ease,” he says.
Foot- and headboards are rounded to beckon and nestle in. This upholstered interpretation of a contemporary sleigh bed can be casual or formal based on the fabric.

While the fabric provides cozi comfort, the lines are definitely streamlined and crisp, and the upholstery is tailored. Wood feet and frame can be in cherry, white oak, maple,  mahogany and walnut (shown). Top-stitching matches the wood choice for contrast and to accentuate the the lines.

With the soft edges and upholstered all around, Drift is an ideal piece to float in today's spacious modern master bedroom. To "feminize" the bed, use softer fabrics or patterns; while a more masculine application might be with leather and top stitching. Boerner told us he personally likes it in a solid textural fabric with a directional grain; he produced one for the showroom in a woven grasscloth.

Drift is made to order, available to design professionals and lists for about $4900, contingent on size, fabric and wood selection.
