SLEEP ON IT PART II: A PLACE TO REST YOUR HEAD

by Marisa Marcantonio

Looking for a new bed to freshen your bedroom? Look no further. To round out my post of recent bedding additions, here are some beds to make you want a new place to rest your head for 8 hours a night. Or, if you are the president, a new mom or Martha Stewart, four.

UPHOLSTERED:

Oomph recently launched a squiggle - backed headboard that is very unique, and a nice addition to the market

Century's graduated curvy Temple King headboard is very now

 Lee Industries does upholstery so well and their headboards are no exception. The camel curved Queen bed was upholstered in a bold black and white ikatesque fabric at market.

Add global glam to your enclave with World Market's Ninda headboard. Boy, is it a great deal, too.

The Octavia bed with nailhead trim in a Greek key motif from Serena and Lily for a fresh upholstered look with a little glimmer.

 This past market also saw the launch of Phoebe Howard's Mr. and Mrs. Howard collection at Sherrill Furniture that had this great curved tufted headboard.

With a stepped - up silhouette, this Deco upholstered headboard from Dwell Studio is not too femme and super comfortable.

Clean corners, an inset border and linear tufting for the neatniks from Drexel Heritage.

Charlotte Moss's new Atlanta bed from Century Furniture, a showroom exclusive, is an instant classic.

Clipped corners and caning on Ballard's Averill Headboard is just the thing for warm weather locales.

The Summerland Key Bed from The Well Appointed House is a classic bamboo canopy bed with a twist. The all-white finish keeps it fresh while the added detail above the headboard provides additional visual interest.

With stature and four posters, the Antonia Canopy Bed, a metal bed from Pottery Barn, has old world charm and comfort with an upholstered headboard

GREAT PAIRS OF TWINS:

Lexington Home Brands West Indies twin headboard with lattice and bamboo detailing would make any guest room cozier.

Lilly keeps it preppy with bamboo detailing on their Tangiers Bed.

Suzanne Kasler added a femme tented canopy to her Simone Upholstered Headboards for Hickory Chair at market. Perfect for teen aged girls.

A little bit dorm room a little bit old-school, Schoolhouse Electric gets it right with the boldly colored Hamilton  Bed

THE MATRESS:

Handmade in Sweden, Hastens frame-based beds and mattresses are known by their distinctive check available in many colors. Filled with horsehair, cotton, flax and wool, they start at $4000 and take over 100 hours to create. Their showroom at 75 Grand Street will be easily recognizable with the crisp signature blue and white checked beds waiting for nap trials.

Initially created for The Savoy in London, Savoir Beds have been gracing royal and luxurious bedrooms in England since 1905.  Wool, horsehair and hand-tied springs make up their natural beds that breathe well. Their pillow tops add an additional layer of coziness. Check out their showroom at 28 Wooster Street to take one for a test drive.

LOVING LILLY: A PEEK AT THE NEW FURNITURE

You can look at vintage stores and estate sales for eons, but why spend the time hunting for preppy pieces when you can buy these stunners that are well designed and brand spanking new?
After showing the new Lee Jofa Lilly fabrics, here is a look at the new furniture with HFI Brands. With classic Palm Beach Regency as it's muse, Lilly Pulitzer furniture is crisp and fresh. Comfortable and easy to live with, the new collection has fretwork, Chippendale and brass accents that will mix well with other pieces.
These select pieces are available through Neiman Marcus and Horchow.
