Rever bed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Poliform from Studio Italia

These statement bed frames prove a stylish base is your bedroom’s perfect finishing touch

We often talk about the merits of a mattress but rarely do we delve into a bed’s other most important attribute — the base on which it rests. An investment piece harnessing both form and function, a bed frame can make or break the thoughtfully curated aesthetic of your bedroom.

We don’t know about you, but we’re spending more time in our bedrooms and on our beds at the moment (the sofa is certainly getting its fair share of use, too), so it’s brought this room of rest into sharper focus than usual. From sleek to statement, we’ve put together some of the best bed frames to inspire the decor of your sleepy sanctuary.
