A Look at Japanese Platform Beds

Platform beds, in general, are great for their simple lines, Zen-like low profile, one-mattress compatibility, and wide availability of styles. You can buy a very boxy platform bed with no headboard or footboard, a more contemporary "bow" platform bed with modernist leg systems, a Japanese-style bed with slightly-curved lines reminiscent of the Han dynasty, and hundreds more. You can even get special "tatami mats" made of straw - a Japanese mat for keeping people and objects separated from the floor or, in this case, from the bed frame.

An interesting note on tatami mats: the Japanese have certain rules regarding the laying out of tatami mats. For example, tatami mats must not be made in a crosshatching manner. Also, the mats, when more than one is laid on the floor, must flow in similar directions. Another rule is that no mats may be touching when on the floor. Tatami mats for beds are similar, in that, if you have a queen or king bed where two tatami mats are placed between frame and mattress, the two mats should not touch.

Japanese platform beds are known for their gently swooping lines, reminiscent of the architectural phenomena of pagodas, or the curved armor applications in traditional Samurai warrior garb. The gentle curves, in tandem with the straight, Zen-like lines, are said to promote well-being, healing, and just general good fortune.

You should expect to pay at least a few hundred dollars for any of the many available good Japanese platforms beds out there. Some will cost in the thousands or tens of thousands, depending on how meticulous the manufacturer or artisan is. Is it worth it? Millions of people worldwide seem to think so.

Is There a Modern Looking Bed Side Table with a Hidden Compartment Out There?
go to Osco and you will find it1. why beverage is always served on the right side of the table?Yes, what Wymugs said, EXACTLY2. What do you keep on your bed side table?a lamp,and the remote3. Since most people are right handed, why is the fork placed on the left-hand side of a table place setting?WHAT? I dont even get any fork. All i get is a pair of chosticks on my right and nothing on my left. This is discrimination.4. During the last supper of Jesus, why did everybody sit on only one side of the table?What are you talking about?The table that the Last Supper was eaten at was horseshoe-shaped, with everyone reclining on their sides.Jesus sat in the number 2 spot as the host; John the beloved disciple sat in the number 1 spot, and Judas sat in the number 3 spot (the spot usually reserved for the guest of honor). Peter sat in the 13 spot, the lowest one on the totem pole and usually reserved for servants.5. When eating out, does it bother you that theres nasty crap on the under side of the table?Yes. It speaks to the quality of the restaurant. A good quality restaurant will check that kind of thing, as well as have high enough prices to where people who have the habit of sticking their gum under the table will be weeded out. Plus, like someone else said, if there's stuff stuck under the table, you might accidentally touch it at some point throughout your meal. eww!6. why did all of the apossles sit on one side of the table at the last supper???maybe the other side was against the wall7. Waht to do about my wobbly side table?Your FLOOR is the problem. I an willing to BET that I can take ANY table and position it SOMEWHERE on your floor and it will wobble. I am also willing to bet, but not as much, that I can position the table you have somewhere on your floor and it wo not wobble. This is true for EVERY 4 legged table and EVERY floor. I would find rubber shims to place under one of the legs to stop the wobble8. Inserting a logo at the left side of the table without changing the width of rest of the rowsYou do not need to use multirow simply move the image before the table. You can use adjustbox to vertically centre the image.Do not specify both height and width to includegraphics unless you also use keepaspectratio or the image will be distorted.Size commands like tiny to not take an argument.cline numbers need to be in ascending order (but I just used hline here).9. In ping-pong, does the ball have to hit your side of the table before you can hit the ball back?You can hit the ball even before the ball touches your side of the table. This is often difficult to do though as it is harder to gauge the intensity of hitting the ball10. why did all of the apossles sit on one side of the table at the last supper???The artist painted the picture a few hundred years after the fact, and he obviously was not there, so he decided to try to put all the faces on the painting, and that's the only way he could figure to do it. In fact, at that time in Israel's history, they would not have even had chairs, they would have been laying around on pillows on the floor eating off of a low table. The painting also shows a lot of long hair, and Jewish men of that time did not wear their hair long. It's just an artists rendering of what he thought it might have been like11. Where to buy a bright red side table?I would look at Ikea. They always seem to have some outstanding furniture that is also affordable. Another idea is to buy a unfinished table and paint it the color you want.12. what's on your bed side table?lamp, a great book, a rotating fan, some pens, my journal13. How To Choose The Perfect Side Table - Frances HuntIt might seem silly, but if you do not take into consideration living room furniture arrangement before you go out and buy your side tables, you could end up with a living room that just feels a little unnatural, like something's not quite right. This kind of unexplainable discomfort in a living room is usually all down to furniture arrangement. There are typically only a handful of locations in the living room where a side table just looks right: One side table either side of a long sofa One side table separating two sofas perpendicular to each other One side table in the corner of the living room The purpose of having a side table is to provide an additional surface in your living room which, due to the smaller size of a side table, can easily be tucked away in awkward spaces or placed wherever you need an extra surface without taking up too much room. If the side table is to be used as an extra surface in addition to a coffee table, you need to be able to reach the side table easily from your seat. Side tables are great for the far corners of the living room where you can not easily reach the coffee table in the centre. The table should be the same height as the sofa's arm preferably, so that someone need only extend their arm to put down their drink. Any armchairs or accent chairs in the living room should have a side table beside it as somewhere to put drinks, glasses, books, etc. The side table is also used to create a sense of visual balance and harmony in the living room. In smaller living rooms, having a side table or two is a great space-saving alternative to a coffee table. But in bigger living rooms there is no reason why you cannot have both. Nothing's worse than being given a nice hot cup of coffee when you are visiting someone at their home, then finding yourself having to awkwardly hold the cup in your hand the entire time as you are not quite sure where to put it down. Do you just put it down on the floor next to your seat? Should you make an effort to get up and put it down on the coffee table or the bookcase? Should you ask them where to put it? By providing an obvious surface beside anywhere that a guest may be seated, you can eliminate any potential awkwardness and guests are able to put down and pick up items without giving it any thought. Not sure what to put on the side table so it does not look quite so bare when not in active use? You could perhaps have a book on your side table to give you something to easily pick up and flick through when you are sitting in the seat next to it. Or you can use something tall like a lamp or a vase of flowers to create a sense of height and give the side table a bit more presence in the room - this works great for side tables that are used as separators in between sofas and armchairs. Side tables come in a huge variety of different finishes and styles, from traditional to contemporary. It's important to match your side tables to the rest of your living room furniture, to continue the general theme.
