The japanese reduced Bookcase bed has an outer frame with an external support which serves as a bookshelf on 3 sides of the bed. The bedframe is reduced at the head of the bed so it cannot contain books there. This is useful for smaller rooms with less space. This bed belongs to the category of Arpel bookcase beds. If you prefer to have the bookcase go all around the bed you can select the classic bookcase bed that can contain books also at the head of the bed.
Internal measures: variable. This bed is available as a single, french, double or king size bed.
Outer frame width: 35 cm more than the internal width. For example, if the internal size is for a 160 cm wide mattress, the outer frame width will be 195

Custom: The mattress size and height of this bed can be customized. Ask for a price quote.
Wooden headboard: A Zen model tilted wooden headboard is available as accessory. The space taken up by headboard in the internal frame is 5 cm. For this accessory we will therefore make the bed frame 5 cm longer than the selected measures at no extra costs. This means that a bed with headboard and a standard 200 cm mattress will be built with an interal length of 205 cm and an external length of 232 cm. If these extra 5 cm create problems due to lack of space, we can modify the attachment of the headrest placing it completely on top of the head panel instead of creating external lateral grooves for the snap-fit system. For the modified headrest please contact us
This bed may be customized with one-coloured or two-coloured finishings. See wood colours
