The direct-to-consumer revolution has streamlined the packaging and delivery of everything from mattresses to couches—it was only a matter of time before bed frames followed suit.
As is now standard for luxury-for-less furniture, Thuma’s bed promises stress-free delivery and setup. The Bed is shipped in slim boxes designed to navigate hallways and door frames—and best of all, there are only two screws that can be tightened by hand (I, for one, will not miss being surrounded by loose screws and inexplicably slippery Allen wrenches). But Thuma goes a step further: the company swears that the entire bed can be assembled in just five minutes, a feat yet to be accomplished by any wood frame that doesn’t already come as a solid unit.
The speedy assembly can be accredited to the Japanese-inspired wood construction, which adds a touch of complexity to the otherwise austere frame. Joinery requires solid wood, as opposed to MDF alternatives that tend to crumble and break, so the bed is durable and can be taken apart without any damage. Wood joinery also eliminates unnecessary metal pieces, the culprits of complex assembly instructions. For renters or frequent movers, this means the bed can travel with you no matter how often you move.
A hybrid pillow and headboard, named the PillowBoard, is included with the frame. The PillowBoard complements the sophistication of the wood while softening the look of the bed. It's more comfortable than a traditional wooden headboard, and you won't need to worry about it nicking your wall.
