For your Japanese bedroom you can choose a Zen bed with tatami provided with original Japanese straw mats. Our tatamis are high-quality products. The price for every bed size includes slats and tatami.
The japanese Zen Tatami bed has a compact frame with a minimalist design.
This bed is made with ecological beechwood and it is suitable for all types of rooms, especially small rooms with little space. This version with tatami also has rigid wooden slats that give an ideal support to the japanese tatami. The tatami is a suitable base for any of our Futons or classic mattresses. To highlight the presence of the tatami, we recommend to order the bed in a larger size than the mattress. To make the tatami visible also at the foot of the bed we can add a 10 cm wide panel at the head of the bed. The tatamis are in fact 200 cm long so this is the only way to make the bed longer, this choice is available in the options above. The japanese Zen bed with tatami belongs to the categor of Arpel japanese beds.

To mantain the selected internal measures we will therefore make the bed 5 cm longer at no extra cost. This means that a bed with a headboard selected for a mattress of 200 cm will have and internal length of 205 cm and an external length of 212 cm. Since the headboard is tilted outwards, we recommend to consider a total length of 218 cm.

The price is the same, just request this variant when ordering. This headboard protrudes about 11 cm from the bed frame so for a bed with an internal length of 200 cm, the total length is 218 cm
