WALL BED – QUALITY

  • bed mechanism – this is what should first of all pay attention to when choosing a half-wall. The Smartbed O Sofa mechanism consists of: a steel frame reinforced with eccentrics, automatically opened, self-leveling legs and gas cylinders with the function of gentle falling and braking, facilitating the opening and closing of the bed. This design guarantees trouble-free use for many years – covered by Transforms 10-year warranty.
  • ease of use – the bed mechanism described above allows you to quickly change the interior from day to night or vice versa. Closing or opening the bed takes only a few seconds. In addition, to make the bed safe when closed, additional safeguards are installed to the mechanism to keep the bed upright (visible in the photo)
  • solidity – multifunctional beds that should work well in everyday and long-term functioning should be solidly built. It is by definition a heavy piece of furniture – therefore the bed casing must be strong and durable. The Smartbed O body is made of 36mm thick furniture board. The front of the bed is made of 18 mm board. These dimensions differ from standard solutions on the market. But they are a conscious choice. The durability and stability of the bed requires such solutions.

Party folding table is a proposal especially attractive for small kitchen spaces. Where every centimeter counts, and kitchen furniture should be multifunctional and comfortable to use. The Party table has two functions:

compact shelf / countertop – which can be integrated into the kitchen or can be used as an independent wall-mounted shelf
comfortable, stable table for everyday meals – which can literally disappear in compact furniture of a small size
The presented table-shelf is a variant of the standard Transforms furniture – Party table-sideboards. Thanks to the system of modules, it can be adapted to the needs of users and have various forms: a chest of drawers or a free-hanging shelf 60/90/120 cm wide. Regardless of the option selected, the furniture retains the same high comfort of use and a modern, universal design. On one hand, it rests on the chest of drawers, on the other, on strong steel legs that guarantee stability. The mechanism is designed with comfort in mind – folding and unfolding the table is extremely easy and takes less than a minute.

Of course, the Party table shelf is not just a kitchen piece. This proposal will be great in any small interior: dining room, small living room or – acting as a desk – in a small room for work. It is also a proposal for the recently popular “open-space” rooms that perform many functions on a daily basis.

The rich color palette of the housing allows it to be integrated into virtually any arrangement style.

Space saving – maximum – we take care of every centimeter of additional free space.

The model presented in the pictures has dimensions of 60×60 and hung on the wall of a small kitchen.

 

Bunk beds not only for children – Smartbed Twins

bunk beds

folding bed

Bunk beds are bedroom beds that enjoy unchanging popularity. These are the most preferred beds for children, when siblings are to share a common room space. But why not go even further and opt for folding bunk beds? They have additional advantages that classic bunk beds lack.

Features of a good folding bunk bed horizontally retractable? Here they are:

Safety – both during sleep and during the day. Children love to jump, climb and roll on their beds. Smartbed Twins bunk beds have a system of comfortable, reliable barriers that fold together with the bed and guarantee freedom of movement and safety during use. In addition, both beds are based on solid steel frames reinforced with eccentrics – which guarantees that you can jump and play on them.

Ease of use – thanks to the mechanisms used with gas servomotors, opening and closing the beds is child’s play. Just raise the bed from below with one hand and it closes in just a few seconds. It is similar with opening. The beds, thanks to the retarders, open and close at a safe pace, and the mounted closing safeguards ensure that the bed does not fall suddenly on your head.

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY OF APPLIED MECHANISMS PROVIDES 10 YEARS WARRANTY OF USE.

Space saving – this is the undisputed advantage of folding bunk beds. Smartbed Twins can be used even in the narrowest and smallest bedrooms. During the day, just close them to gain a few meters of free space. But that’s not all. The classic version of Smartbed Twins, when closed, creates a smooth surface that blends harmoniously with the interior design and style.

The second solution is to use the Smartbed Single model at the bottom of the bed, i.e. a horizontally folding bed with a desk. The furniture top is the length of the bed so there is plenty of space to study and work. An additional advantage of the desk is that you can safely leave all your things on it before opening the bed. The desk folds under the bed. And all the textbooks, computer, notebooks will stay in their place.

Individual solutionsevery child is different and wants to emphasize it. Thanks to the wide range of colors and stylistic headboards, each of the beds can have a different character and be a cozy place to rest, different for everyone (example: photos below).

multifunctional design

After closing, if such are the expectations of users, the beds form a stylistically homogeneous whole. If the beds are also to be different in the daytime version, there is a possibility of any choice of front colors from among several dozen colors of the basic palette.

The Smartbed Twins bed has one more advantage: the possibility of freely installing bunk beds: wardrobe, library, cabinets for everyday items. Thanks to this Transforms furniture adapts to any space.

Bedroom to size and folding bed

When we dream of a bedroom to size, the Smartbed V Sofa Box folding bed is the perfect solution,.

Even in a several-meter interior designed for a night’s rest you can save a place, and even increase its functionality.

The most important is the layout of the space. Therefore, especially when arranging a small room, it is worth considering a design with furniture to size.

Then, every element necessary in the bedroom can be exactly adapted to each other and the room’s possibilities.

Usually, from the bedroom, we expect that there will be a place for a wardrobe, a bedside table, and of course a bed.

Most often double bed. This is the minimum necessary.

It would be great if there was still space to hide the bedding and place,

on which you can sit, for example during the morning dress.

Now, imagine that one piece of furniture is enough to meet all these expectations.

A piece of furniture that creates additional space in the living space.

How is this possible?

The folding bed with the Smartbed V Sofa Box is:

  • comfortable, fully functional double folding bed
  • wardrobe building that will accommodate clothing
  • fold-out comfortable sofa, which can be used freely after folding the bed
  • under the sofa (opening) there is a drawer for bedding

Ah, and there was to be a bedside table. Please look at the photos from our last implementation: it is!

Because the size of this bedroom is really small, it uses an interesting solution for the night table.

The SALICE shelf slides out of the closet and creates a place where you can put down your phone, book, cup of tea.

When it is not needed, it disappears in the building. And during the day it can be used as a small table for the sofa.

Yes, with this solution there is no place for a bedside lamp.

But it is not a need. Lighting the interior of the bed with LED lamps gives a warm, gentle, intimate light.

You can read, relax and talk with him.

Additional amenities of this project are:

  • USB sockets in the walls of the bed (shown in the pictures)
  • Push-pull doors that open after lightly pressing the cabinet’s wall
  • Amber Dream mattress – optimally adjusted for thickness, hardness and other parameters to the requirements of the vertical folding bed

A bed for a Single – Smartbed O

A bed for a single – the design has a new meaning.

In the past, a single couch has gone: narrow, often incoming, with a box for bedding under the mattress.

However, it is still on the bed, which must have its functions to a small extent

area of ​​the flat, with limited number of rooms.

What is the guiding principle when creating single beds?

Before you make the final decision, think about whether your potential bed is:

  • comfortable – sleep quality and convenience is a priority
  • save space – a small bedroom does not have to be cluttered with a large one
  • multifunctional – as found in the arrangement, when the living room also functions as a bedroom
  • modern – bad mattress, hard-working mechanisms, cheap solutions – will quickly bounce on your pocket
  • how many stylizations and solutions does the bed manufacturer offer you

If you care about all these aspects of the furniture, consider choosing a hide-and-seek bed horizontally.

Such as Smartbed O from Transforms. It meets all of these expectations and additionally:

  • has a 10-year operating warranty
  • has 10 days warranty on the quality of the cartridge used in ithas several dozen color versions of casings and soft elements
  • offers several versions of the program: from 90 cm up
  • picture of a multitude of building versions: from the bed itself to any other arrangement: libraries, wardrobes, shelves, lockers, etc.
  • has an additional option of expanding the bed with a comfortable sofa – and is functional in the living space
  • thanks to a multi-variant solution adapting to each stylization of the room
  • may have additional facilities: USB ports, electrical sockets, LED lighting, and even a program for remote opening
    But that’s not all. We have that the arrangement of the first apartment is no mean feat.Therefore, we use the system when ordering each of our beds.At the end will find out whether your bed for a single is all it can and offers?

Smartbed V Sofa – “made to measure” hidden beds

What we really like about designing and building hidden beds is the fact that each implementation is unique.

Our offer includes:

beds hidden vertically and horizontally
single and double beds
retractable beds with the function of a sofa, table, desk, shelves
swivel bed
bunk beds
So the number of solutions and choice options is seemingly limited. Nevertheless, it did not happen that we would realize two, even similar to each other, stylistically or coloristically, projects. Thanks to the wide selection of finishes: fronts, enclosures, upholstery, each bed is truly unique, just like its owner. An additional advantage is the possibility of housing the bed in accordance with the arrangement of the room, the needs of the user or already functioning in the selected room furniture.

Often, we also deviate from accepted standard designs, implementing very individual projects. Bent sofa backrests, designing the sofa according to the pattern and concept of the interior designer, shortening the shelves, installing the grilles, taking the place of the TV screen, etc., etc. The only thing that limits us is the parameters of the frame and bed mechanism and … imagination.

Please, take a look at our latest Warsaw realization. Smartbed V Sofa 140×200. Most often and most often bought bed hidden Transform.

Here, in pastel delicate colors, which corresponds very well with the current season. Full of light and brightness, the arrangement that gives lightness to the whole, quite powerful after all, and highlights the interior finish.

It is a project with buildings in the form of bookshelves, which stood in the living room and will have two separate functions, depending on the time of day and the needs of users. And the carefully prepared buildings blend in perfectly with the bed space.

Here are the details of our June implementation:

The color of the casing and bed: body and back SN K022 / front and edge PE 0540

Colors of the sofa and headboard: Piano 13

At the client’s request, we installed a LED lighting system under the library, placed under the shelves.

What is your dream bed?

 

Wall bed – what to do with bedding?

Wall bed, although  it is known and present on the market for years, raise questions.

In conversations with Clients, one of the most common questions that is asked is:

“What to do with bedding?”

There are two solutions:

  • when ordering a hide-and-seek bed with a couch option, you can choose one that has a storage space for bedding. The Transforms offer includes the Smartbed V Sofa Box model. In it, in the base of the sofa there is a large storage that can be used to hide bedding. But it is not really necessary. This space can be used to store other things.
    Why?
  • every bed hidden in the wardrobe from Transforms has a belt system in its standard equipment. They are placed in two places of the bed and serve just to hold the bedding. Their use is easy and comfortable. A small clasp placed on each of them allows you to quickly “stretch” the bed. Belts keep the bedding in place, and it takes a few seconds to unfasten them. Before sleeping, the belts can be hidden under the mattress. They remain invisible and imperceptible to the user. A nice addition is the fact that the color of the belts is matched to the color of the bed.

 

That’s how the problem with the quilt, the bedspread is solved. And what about pillows?

Pillows remain where we put them. When closing and opening the beds, they hide in the space between the headboard and the mattress, which effectively holds them and does not require them to be fastened.

The choice of bed type depends entirely on the client’s idea and needs. Lashing straps are installed in all Transforms bed models.

How the belt system looks like can be seen in the pictures from our latest implementation.

Here is the Smartbed V Sofa mattress 140×200, in soft pastel colors.
