1. Best Overall: Modloft Haru Bed, $1,760 – $2,400

Modloft remains one of the most respected yet underrated high-end furniture brands today. One area where the brand particularly excels is in its wide bed frame selection. Most of the options feature sleek lines and modern finishes while maintaining the brand’s signature polished aesthetic.

What’s best about these beds, though, is that most of them fit the minimalist aesthetic to a T, leaving it up to personal preference which style you ultimately choose. Upon heavily scouring the site, Modloft’s definite best seller is the Haru Bed that shoppers say is “elegant, strong, steady, quiet and superb quality.”

This bed has an extremely durable solid wood frame and an Andorra wool headboard that’s not too tall or short. Choose from three wood finishes (black oak, natural oak and walnut) and three sizes (Queen, King and California King) and you’re good to go. Also, if you’re into the “floating bed” look, this one does it well while still elevated enough that you don’t feel like you’re sleeping on the ground.

There’s also just the right amount of under-bed free space to store items, making this bed perfect for those who need every ounce of space they can get. Seeing as I’m currently redecorating my bedroom, I’ve ordered this bed myself, so it also has my full stamp of approval.

Best Review: “This bed frame is just the best. Elegant, strong, steady, [quiet] and superb quality. [It] took some time to get here, and [it’s] worth the wait. Super high-quality materials.”

2. Top Adjustable Option: Brooklyn Bedding Adjustable Power Base, $524.25 – $1,048.50 (Orig. $699 – $1,398)

Most folks prefer buying just a foundation or, in this case, a power base and sprucing it up with an affordable headboard from any furniture or major retailer. This is also a more cost-effective way to decorate your sleeping space.

The Brooklyn Bedding Ascension Luxe Adjustable Power Base gives you an elevated sleep and leisure experience in one simple package. Think of it as the more functional and cooler brother to the Sleep Number Bed.

It has an elegant, ergonomic design and comes with a wireless remote that controls the bed’s comfort and support. The remote sync option also lets you control split sides simultaneously, making this perfect for couples and those with back and neck pain.

The remote also lets you preset positions for television viewing, zero gravity, anti-snoring and lounge postures. Plus, it has handy head and foot tilt adjustments that offer amazing spine alignment while you sleep. Shoppers also love that the Brooklyn Bedding Ascension Luxe Adjustable Power Base has two USB charging ports under the base for easy bedtime phone charging. It also has a built-in flashlight in the remote control that’s easy to use in the dark.

This one comes in three sizes: Twin XL, Queen and Split King.

Best Review: “I didn’t realize what I was missing until I tried this bed. I don’t need this bed for medical reasons, but boy do I love this bed for comfort. The multiple raise/lower positions are great!”

Last up is this Nest Bedding best seller that is both good for the environment and beautifully crafted. The brand’s Arcadian Bed Frame is made of 100% reclaimed wood and is handmade in Los Angeles, Calif., by skilled craftsmen.

It comes in three stunning water-based luxury finishes — raw (pictured above), whitewash and greywash — which all are finished in a zero-VOC, odor-free, water-based and nontoxic sealant. If you’re curious about how sustainable this bed frame is through and through, Nest reassures that even the glues in the construction process are nontoxic and have no chemical scents or harmful fumes.
