The Case Study® bed is uniquely functional with its hardwood ply and zinc-plated perforated steel platform inserts which take the place of a box spring and allow the mattress to breathe naturally. Hand built of top quality 26-layer maple plywood resting on six, rather than four, chrome plated steel legs giving the bed extra strength and stability. This classic hand crafted mid-century design is made in the USA and engineered to last a lifetime.

Available in either chrome plated steel V-legs or bentwood multi-ply legs in a choice of natural, classic or walnut finishes. Mattress and bedding are not included. Simple assembly required. Fits mattresses up to 9" h.

* The single bed frame is constructed with solid steel springs conveniently accessible under a removable canvas cover. All larger bed frames are delivered with zinc-plated perforated steel inserts.

* The platform ships in one-piece and does not disassemble. Please check your measurements and plan accordingly.

Modernica’s first official year as a furniture manufacturer came in 1989, after Frank and Jay Novak purchased 12,000 discarded plastic shell chairs and created bases and shock mounts for them. The shells had been discarded by Century Plastics, after Herman Miller discontinued their production of fiberglass chairs. Modernica founded their company on the heels of the North American Modernist movement and perpetuated the idea of the burgeoning modernist California lifestyle.
