Made of bent bamboo, this southern Chinese day bed was likely the most popular piece of furniture in house. Lightweight and portable, the platform bed traveled from room to room and was even brought outdoors during the region’s sultry summers. Low to the ground, the bed was easy to clamber upon for sleeping, reading, or playing music. Using bamboo’s reticulated stems to best advantage, stout pieces form bed’s legs and low side rails, while narrower lengths were fastened together to form the apron and leg supports. An inset of crushed bamboo provides a sturdy platform. A delight in a sun room, this day bed invites indulgent lounging.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
