BOULDER, CO – Japanese Traditional Furniture Creates Inspiration for New Modern Homes
Comfort in the bedroom is a matter of personal taste. A rising trend in popularity is integration of Japanese Bedroom Furniture into the western hemisphere of the world. The elements of an American or Western Style bed are much different than those of a traditional Japanese Bed.
American Traditional and Platform beds have a higher frame profile. While platform beds do not require a box spring, both traditional and platform bed frames will typically raise the mattress to the height of your hips. This convenience allows you to easily lie down or rise from the bed without stooping or squatting. The standard American Mattress is between 8 and 18 inches thick with either an innerspring or latex core and often offer additional comfort features such as a pillow top or latex foam topper.
The traditional Japanese home is designed with little furniture and large open spaces. For this reason, the tatami bed is a multipurpose frame that is used for sleeping, entertainment, and sitting. Japanese Beds are typically very low to the ground. A Japanese Tatami Bed Frame applies a bowed slat system overlayedwith Tatami mats designed to provide a flexible platform for a thin and comfortable futon mattress.
Now the Japanese futon is very different from the college-dorm style futon sleeper. The Japanese, or Shiki Futon mattress is a thin and comfortable sleeping mat that can be rolled up and stored when not in use. Because of the flexibility of the slats and Tatami Sleeping Mats, Japanese Beds are surprisingly comfortable, and excellent for maintaining spinal health.
From the beginning of the Nera period in the early 700s to the modern day technology-driven era, Japanese furniture has remained timeless in quality and style. It was quite a bit later, in the Heian period that the use of a tatami mat evolved into flooring which when placed in a room, created virtually unlimited seating for family and guests.
In recent years, Japanese traditional Tatami Beds have become a popular trend among many in the western culture. Once considered a luxury only provided for nobility and samurai warriors, tatami mats served as a cushion for sleeping and a comfortable seating area when applied to the floor or frame. The Japanese Tatami bed has not evolved much over the years, but not for lack of ingenuity. Traditional Tatami Bed design and construction has always been built using the finest techniques and materials. For this reason you can look at a Tatami Beds over the years, and see a similar level of quality and style.
