Modern Platform Beds
Our beds act as our sanctuaries: more than just a warm embrace at the end of the day or a soft place to live out slow Sunday mornings, our beds cradle us through a generous portion of our lives, providing comfort and solace from the busy-ness of everyday life.
Why not invest in one that will carry you through the decades with enduring style?
Our collection of thoughtfully crafted pieces includes a range of options, from low bed frames that save space by keeping its footprint compact, to wooden bed frames that anchor your space with a touch of rustic charm, or mid-century modern appeal. Choose from upholstered or wooden frames in a variety of finishes and fabrics to suit your space.
Personalize your collection with a variety of customization options, or, select a ready-to-ship model and receive it in as little as a few weeks adorned in one of our most popular fabrics or leathers and receive it in as little as a few weeks.
A good night’s sleep goes a long way in securing a good day ahead. Start your day in good spirits by cultivating surroundings you love waking up to, day in and day out. Consider your space a sanctuary, an expression of yourself and a collection of your favourite things. Beginning your bedroom design and bedframe search with this frame of mind will help keep you focused on your main priorities and allow you to narrow in on the pieces that will align with your lifestyle.
Our bedrooms are the places where we recharge, relax, and reconvene. When we allow these spaces to take shape with our wellbeing in mind, they nurture us through these moments of pause. It’s where we start our day and where we end it. We spend roughly 8 hours day in these four walls, it makes sense we’d want to make them as conducive to our peace as possible. With EQ3’s timeless designs and promise for quality, we hope to help everyone find their bliss.
You’ve Got Options
From cozy upholstered frames to spend slow Sunday mornings under the covers to the bold beauty of solid wood, our curated collection of bedframes offer character in bounds. When determining which of our selection to invite into your sanctuary, consider the context. Examine the surroundings and try to connect each element. You might want a more substantial piece to anchor your room and complement a sleek and modern aesthetic. Or, you might want a softer influence in the form of our upholstered beds, offering additional comfort with padded headboards that make getting out of bed a chore. Whichever option you land on, know it was made with quality in mind. Before every design is shipped off to its new home, our quality control staff take images of it and compare with the original sketches, ensuring every detail is perfectly aligned.

Environmentally-Sensitive Water Based Finish
At EQ3, sustainability is important. We aim to make pieces not fast, but to last. A part of that means taking the time to consider how our work impacts the world around us, from planet to people. We weren’t thrilled with the finish options available to us, many of them containing harsh chemicals that aren’t great for our employees or the environment. We knew we could find a way to do better.
Together with our partners at our Indonesian plant, we developed our environmentally sensitive water-based finish, an alternative that allowed us to showcase the natural beauty of solid wood without emitting harsh chemicals.
This innovation was a product of our commitment to improvement, our unyielding desire to create kinder furniture for a better future, a mission we hold dear to ours hearts at EQ3.
Our goal is to help you find the bed of your dreams. The one you can return to night after night, falling in love with it all over again. We believe that making a choice you can love forever starts with having as many options available as possible. From finishes to fabrics and leathers, we’re proud to give you more options to achieve your desired vision. Choose from 100s of fabrics and leathers on any of our upholstered beds, and select finishes for any of our case goods.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your soft place to land. Although our frames provide a solid foundation for rest, it’s not the whole picture. Explore our curated selection of bedding options, from EQ3’s own designs to the always-optimistic bold patterns and prints of Iconic Finnish design house, Marimekko. Explore our collection of throws to place atop your bed, adding an extra layer of warmth and texture that truly makes your space feel welcoming. These pieces can compliment an existing aesthetic or transform with an infusion of colour.
With endless options come tough decisions. But there’s no need to get overwhelmed. We recommend making a list of your top three priorities. Comfort? Storage? Appearance? Our options are intended to ensure you never have to sacrifice one must-have for another, but knowing what you want going into the buying process can keep you focused on your end goal.
When shopping for a new bed frame, the first consideration should be size. Measure the space and plot out how much room you need for bedside tables, walking path, and white space. Those sharing a bed with a significant other or who have kids that are often keen on crashing in the mornings for snuggles typically gravitate toward Queen or King bed frames. There’s just nothing better than having space to spread out and stretch your legs. But this needs to be measured against the realistic scope and size of the bedroom. A King sized bed frame won’t do your space any favours if it’s monopolizing all the available real estate and making everything else feel cramped. Take a balanced approach. Our Oma bed, compact in footprint due to its slender profile, could be a great option if you are short on space and wanting to maximize your sleeping surface. You also may want to consider the height of the bed. Where would you like the mattress to sit? Do you have a box spring you’re hoping to incorporate for added height, or do you prefer a lower bed with slats? These options come down to personal preference, and can be determined by considering where you’d like to be in relation to other elements in the space, like a TV or bedside table surfaces. There are no wrong answers—it’s just about what makes you most comfortable.
If you are running short on space, another thing you should consider is storage. Our Cello and Marcel beds lift to reveal convenient compartments that allow you to store out of season bedding or extra clothing, freeing up closet or cabinet space. We also have options with under bed drawers, or space to store baskets. This additional benefit can go a long way in ensuring your space is optimized for ideal living space.
Another important factor is whether you want an upholstered bed or a wooden bed frame. An upholstered bed frame offers an additional layer of comfort on its headboard, making it easy to rest up against for slow moving mornings or breakfasts in bed. From neutral to vibrant, you can choose the fabric that you love for your space. Our wooden bed frames offer a more structured appearance, anchoring the space with natural wood hues. Again, this is personal preference, but it’s a good idea to consider the other permanent fixtures of your space. Do you want to bring in more colour? Upholstery is a nice way to do that, whether you’re opting for the richness of leather or the boldness of a fabric. Consider the colour of your flooring. If you have hardwoods and you’re wanting a wooden bed frame, try to consider your selected finish against the grain of hardwoods. Do they clash or compliment? Only you can answer that.
Having trouble nailing down your look? Our design services are here to help. At EQ3, we believe that knowledge is for sharing. We delight in every opportunity to share the experience we’ve acquired over the years of considering space and design and the interplay between them. So much so, that we’re giving it away for free.
If great design is all about context (it is!), then a piece must be considered in relation to the people and the space at hand. Even an identical sofa in two different homes might look, feel and function differently in each role. Our complimentary design services will connect you with a local design expert for a virtual, in-home, or in-store consultation (in accordance with local COVID-19 restrictions). They’ll then start observing the nuances of your space, guiding you through the process of selecting pieces that serve your lifestyle and highlight your home’s existing features and furniture.
This service isn’t just for major redesigns either: even the simple task of a lighting revamp could benefit from a helping hand and an expert eye.
Our goal with EQ3 was to create designs with built-in longevity. Although each of our products is built with quality top-of-mind, a part of our mission to create long-lasting pieces is dependent on our customer finding the deigns that work for them—the furniture they can fall in love with every day all over again. That measn assisting our customers with that process. Giving them to the tools to ensure the final look they end up with is one that can be cherished for decades to come.
Your consultation will encompass all product categories: furniture, accessories, and our EQ3+ brands; EQ3’s vast selection of fabrics and leathers; material options and finishes; lighting; and options for placement/layout.
Your design expert will create a custom mood board to clarify your vision, provide complimentary material swatches for your consideration, and build a 3D floor plan of your space to bring the design to life and ensure your square footage is maximized.
Your design expert will help you understand where to invest and where to save, ensuring each dollar is spent wisely and efficiently on a timeless look--a feature new homeowners can certainly appreciate.
