or Call to Order

Designed over two decades ago, the Morri­son Bed is an elegant and straight­for­ward design that remains one of our favorites. The recti­lin­ear plat­for­m’s minimal reveal creates the illu­sion that the mattress is an inte­gral part of the form. The attached head­board is a gently curved verti­cal form that creates a beau­ti­ful foil to the hori­zon­tal plane support­ing the mattress. 

The Morri­son Bed frame is composed of fir, poplar plywood, and metal with staves in beech plywood and padding in multi-density polyurethane foam. Its slightly canted feet are in natural polished aluminum. The uphol­stery covers used on the hori­zon­tal and verti­cal portions are fully removable.
