Our latest lookbook features bedrooms where raised platform beds add a stylish touch, ranging from a solid concrete bed in a home in Mexico to a sculptural wooden bed in a Tokyo flat.

Often used in minimalist and brutalist interiors, platform beds with no clearance underneath have a monolithic feel that can really create a statement in pared-back interiors.

Also among the examples below are a pale pastel-green bed in a Stockholm apartment and a bed in a Sydney cottage with a bath for a bedhead.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s archive. For more inspiration, see previous lookbooks featuring kitchens with natural and tactile materials and colourful patterned bathrooms.
