Overview

Design by Modernica Studio, 2000.
Made in the U.S.A. by Modernica.

The stunning Case Study V-Leg Bed by Modernica is engineered to provide a lifetime of outstanding durability, while maintaining a modern, elegant look for your home. The frame and headboard are handcrafted with solid one-and-a-half-inch thick laminated hardwood. The frame is supported by six legs, rather than the standard four legs, for additional overall strength and sturdiness. Your mattress sits directly atop the platform so there is no need for a box spring. The Single size bed frame features a canvas cover over the steel springs. The Full, Queen, King, and Cal King bed frames feature zinc-plated perforated steel panels. The Case Study Metal V-Leg Bed is offered in your choice of hardwood finish.

Notes:

Mattress and bedding are not included.

Standard Delivery is Curbside. White Glove service is available at a premium and must be requested at the time of order placement. Please contact our Sales Department for rates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design...Craftsmanship...Made in America. I am impressed with the craftsmanship of the product. The construction and feel of the bed frame is very sturdy and assembly is simple. Not only is the style of the case study amazing, it is also functional. It works well in our small bedroom because the platform fits our mattress perfectly and the headboard is vertical with a little give from its supports, maximizing space. The headboard height works well with our 5" wool mattress and 2" wool topper. I believe any mattress over 10" may look a little strange. The metal V-legs are simple and create a clean look. Overall, I am very pleased with our case study bed and believe it will be around longer than I am.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice product Received my Case study as advertised in good time and the delivery guy even helped carry in into my house. This bed is well made (I ordered the classic finish). Goes together very nicely using heavy duty carriage bolts to hold the legs and headboard brackets. The metal mesh is a nice feature - but my tempurpedic mattress can slide around on the mesh (while making the bed etc.). The bed is extremely solid - no moving around or creeks. Great retro mid century timeless styling too. 5 stars would be perfect - and while this bed comes close, it's a solid 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely frame Love the simple frame. Fits well in my master bedroom. The company used to ship, however, was terrible. The box arrived tattered with an entire corner missing. Luckily the foam and shrink wrapping were intact, so no major damage was done to the frame aside from a small scratch. The delivery company wouldn't help me carry the huge, heavy, box to the back of the house. I had to leave it out front until that evening when I could recruit some friends to help. I did also have to wait about two months for the bed to be delivered which I was quite frustrated about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless elegant modern bed that will always make me happy that I bought the bed Although the bed frame was about 8 inches shorter than my king size mattress, the bed looked beautiful after it's made. But the most surprising element was that when we slept on it, it was so much better than the old box spring. The metal meshed spring made the bed so comfortable that I felt not only did we get a stylish bed frame but also got a whole new mattress as well. The bed is well made and heavy (close to 80 pounds) and it is beautifully simple. I just love the bed!!! I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in modern bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased. The Case Study V-leg bed is well made and as described on the website. A slight difference I noticed was that the website photo shows a portion of the wood frame exposed around the perimeter, but my standard width queen mattress extends from edge to edge. Although not visible once the mattress is installed, some areas of the wood frame have dark patches of plywood compared to the adjacent areas. Something I am not used to seeing on properly sanded plywood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sleek and well-crafted. I have longed for this bed ever since I first learned of the Case Study series nearly 10 years ago. Despite a large number of design studios producing scores of amazing pieces in that span, I didn't hesitate for a second when it came time to make my decision: V-leg in natural. The bed's craftsmanship is superb. As the platform is a single piece, the bed is extremely heavy (137 lbs from the UPS estimate). That said, once it was up a flight of stairs and in my bedroom, construction was very straight forward (make sure to have a power drill to make things easier). The bed was just as I imagined: perfect. The height was as low as I had hoped, the frame and headboard were simple and unobtrusive. The steel legs provided a wonderful accent and worked well with my Eames LTR tables that I use as night stands (almost exact same height as platform). The only regret I have is that I didn't purchase this sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS BED!!! The Case Study V-Leg bed with steel legs is a great looking and very sturdy bed. I love the Mid-Century Modern Hairpin legs! It makes my Laura Ashley Sleepy's pillowtop mattress even more comfortable than it felt on a metal bed frame. At first I put just the mattress on the bed so that the headboard would show more but it was not as comfortable. So, luckily, my box spring is a low-profile one. It only measures about 6" and my mattress measures 11" high, which totals 17". With both mattress and boxspring on the bed, you couldn't see the headboard. So, I fixed the problem by drilling another hole in back of it and raising up the headboard a few inches. I have it attached by one row of screws instead of 3 but it is fine because it is against a wall. The only complaint I have about this bed is the headboard should be bigger in height. But is is solid Maple and extremely well made. I like it better than the similar one at other online retailers, which is double the price and not nearly as sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well made, worth it 100% This bed exceeded my expectations..it is sturdy, well built and looks amazing. Honestly, it looks like it is worth more than we paid and not like a cheap piece of furniture that is going to fall apart. The metal legs are thick steel and not flimsy. Very glad we made this purchase!

George Nelson

Designer: George Nelson

When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps"--moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."

An early zap came in the 1930s, when he was an architectural student in Rome. Before returning home, an idea struck him: He would travel Europe and interview leading modern architects, hoping to get the articles published in the U.S. He succeeded, and in the process introduced the U.S. design community to the European avant-garde. This set in motion a sequence of what he called "lucky" career breaks that were really the inevitable outcomes of his brilliance as a designer, teacher, and author.

The first break was being named an editor of Architectural Forum magazine. Working on a story there in 1942, he was looking at aerial photos of blighted cities when--zap!--he developed the concept of the downtown pedestrian mall, which was unveiled in the Saturday Evening Post.

Soon after, another zap led to the Storagewall, the first modular storage system and a forerunner of systems furniture. The Storagewall was showcased in a 1945 Life magazine article, causing a sensation in the furniture industry. Herman Miller founder D.J. DePree saw the article and was so impressed that he paid a visit to Nelson in New York and convinced him to be his director of design, which spurred Nelson to found his design firm, George Nelson & Associates. The warm personal and professional relationship between Nelson and DePree yielded a stunning range of products, from the playful Marshmallow Sofa to the first L-shaped desk, a precursor of today's workstation.

Nelson once wrote that Herman Miller "is not playing follow-the-leader." That's one reason why George Nelson & Associates worked with Herman Miller for over 25 years as they shepherded design into the modern era.

During this same period, George Nelson & Associates also created many landmark designs of products, showrooms, and exhibitions for a variety of companies and organizations.

Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as antihuman." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.

Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.
