We are super excited to announce our N W A Y bed is shortlisted in the Collaboration category for the Design Files Awards.

The project objective was to design a new bed that accommodated a growing family. A very personal project, the bed had to provide a sense of inclusion, be Australian made and a focus on a practical yet tactile modern design, with reference to traditional craftsmanship at the core.

An ode to Danish design classics and the beauty of hand-made craftsmanship, the bed is both refined and raw, combining solid Victorian Ash frame with dowel wrapping as a bedhead, maximising comfort and enveloping you with a warm embrace.

The bed frame is manufactured locally in Melbourne and crafted by hand; using timber sourced from sustainably managed forests.

The designer-maker, Softer Studio, a highly-skilled cabinetry designer who shares our values of considered living, innovation and timeless design, brings the design to life.

Available through Lightly in your choice of solid Victorian ash or beech timber. The bed is elegantly finished with a natural oil and wax combination to ensure your new bed stays protected all life long.

NWAY is made to order in king or queen sizing, please contact info@lightly.com.au for more information or to place an order.
