Introducing: The Floyd Platform Bed 

The first bed frame designed for city living –– modular, sturdy and moves with you (& not to mention beautiful!). Engineered to be the last bed frame you'll have to buy.

Perfect for that foam mattress that's living on the floor :)

We're back on Kickstarter!

Two years ago we debuted our vision to re-think what a table can be right here on Kickstarter. This community shared in our concept and believed in us, and we made sure to deliver on time with a quality product. 

The amazing support we first received on Kickstarter has not only helped us grow into the company we are today, but is changing the culture of furniture consumption. We're back where it all began to give you an opportunity to continue to share in our vision for creating furniture for city living.

These people have said nice things about our products:

The Problem

Let's be real—if you live in a city, purchasing a bed frame that lasts isn't easy. Getting to a big box store is a challenge, assembly can be hundreds of parts, and disassembly even more difficult. If you find a frame, slats end up breaking. It's difficult to move, and ultimately ends up in the dumpster when you head to that next apartment.

---------------------------------------

THE FLOYD PLATFORM BED:

Engineered To Be The Last Bed Frame You Buy

When we first started tackling the idea of a bed frame, we asked ourselves: What are the essential things we need to accomplish? 1) Get that mattress off the floor! 2) Make it easy & 3) Make it sturdy! We designed a minimal, low-profile floating bed, that allows for a comfortable night's sleep, with a super sturdy platform (that doesn’t bend or slump over time). It's also modular –– meaning you can expand from a twin to a queen or king as your lifestyle changes.

Simple-to-Assemble (& Disassemble!) –– NO TOOLS REQUIRED

At Floyd, we knew there was a better way, so we made it. Building off the same design language as our earlier products, the Floyd Platform Bed arrives to your door in a kit with everything you need — ready to use. It’s something that we’ve been working on designing and prototyping since our first Kickstarter. Now we are ready to share it with you, the Kickstarter community, who made this all possible from the start!

Sturdy

An extremely sturdy construction of minimal parts.

Thoughtful Design

The wooden panels are made from real birch veneer (not the fake stuff!) giving your room a warm feeling. The Clips are beautiful objects in themselves. The Floyd Platform Bed easily moves with you and one person can assemble it in a few minutes. The Floyd Platform Bed consists of 3 parts:

Wooden Panels: a special honeycomb technology utilized by NASA. It’s extremely strong, yet very light.

Made in the US

We work with the same manufacturers that produce The Floyd Leg. For us, product design begins with the manufacturer. Our aim is to produce affordable, high quality products, manufactured in partnerships with factories here in Detroit and other Great Lakes Cities. Many of our partners are multi-generational, family-owned factories that have decades of experience working in the high precision industries of aerospace and automotive.

Risks and challenges

We are working with the same expert manufacturing partners that we've worked with for the past two years. We're back on Kickstarter because we are excited to introduce new technologies and manufacturing processes into our current supply chain. These established relationships ensure we won't be competing with other companies for production time.

We have estimated conservatively for lead times on our components and materials. Of course, hiccups could happen along the way, which is why we've always taken the approach of being as transparent as possible with the timeline as we progress.

Not only have we been here before, and delivered on time for a Kickstarter project (that went over 14 times our goal!), but we've also consistently scaled a supply chain and delivered to happy customers all around the world for over two years.
