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: A copper-plated steel bed.
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.
Above: At the juncture of each bed leg, brass screws give the wooden bed a glamorous detail.
Above: Hein Eek’s metal bed is gray powder-coated steel. The headboard is lined with the same Portuguese felt as in the copper bed, this time of naturally brown sheep’s wool.
Above: The brass and steel beds are the same basic design, with diagonal steel reinforcements at each leg.
Above: The beds are made by hand in Piet Hein Eek’s workshop in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
