The New Metallics: Beds by Piet Hein Eek

September 1, 2015

Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek–a Remodelista favorite–has collaborated with Dutch eco-bedding line Yumeko to design three handmade beds to complement the “luxurious simplicity” of the Yumeko brand. The beds–in copper, oak, and powder-coated steel–are the bedding company’s first foray into furniture.

Above: The attached headboard is lined with felt from a traditional felt maker in Portugal; it’s not dyed, but is the same ivory color of the sheep’s wool.

Above: Hein Eek’s wooden bed is made of FSC-certified solid European oak. The wood is left unvarnished to show the grain and warm color of the oak.
