The Deck Bed 

Created in March 2015

In March of 2015 I rented a small studio apartment in Hollywood. To solve the problem of not wanting my bed in the middle of my only room, I custom designed and built, with the help of my dear friend and extremely talented furniture designer Vasili, "The Deck Bed." 

The Deck Bed creates additional floorspace by encasing the bed and bedding inside of a box platform. When access to the bed is needed, hydraulic lifters help to raise (and lock) the platform to a 90° angle. 

The steps provide additional storage while simultaneously polishing off the "deck" aesthetic, also enhanced by the use of high grade astroturf in place of carpets.
