Lotus – The beds that are j-u-s-t right!
It’s pretty common knowledge that sleep is the most important thing for staying happy, healthy and sane. Choosing the right bed should be a serious business (after all, it’s an investment) and here in Ibiza, recently refurbished interiors showroom Lotus, located on the road between Ibiza and Santa Eulalia, are the experts for advising you on the best choice for your needs.
Like Goldilocks, you’ll need to try them until you find the one that is j-u-s-t right! Lotus also stocks everything you need to style your bed to suit your tastes – from sheets, bedcovers, duvets and quilts to custom made soft furnishings.
Typical bed bases and structures
Four-postered and canopy beds. Often considered the romantics choice, the four-poster actually comes in many different styles. Balinese motifs with slender posts draped in muslin, Louis XVI in deep crimson brocades and carved canopy or even clean modern lines in brushed steel or lacquered wood. There is a four-poster out there to fit almost any architectural style in Ibiza.
Divan. These beds come in two parts, the mattress and the base. They can be stylish and extremely comfortable. The upholstery and headboard can be chosen to match the interior of the bedroom making this choice very versatile. Divans can also contain drawers underneath which is handy if you have storage issues – great for casitas or small apartments.
Sleigh bed. Another romantic choice, the sleigh bed is traditionally made in wood or leather. Your taste can dictate the amount of detail with some sleighs sporting intricate, hand carved head and footboards to others with a simple, angular cut. Either way this style brings a traditional glamour to any bedroom – a great way to glam up a rental villa.
Platform. This bed is made up of base constructed of wood or metal. It lends an Asian influence that can either be built upon or tempered with various materials and furnishings. They can be stand-alone, have a headboard feature or built in nightstand and storage. Platform beds are sleek and supremely contemporary and fit well in a minimalist room – perfect from which to wake up and check out the sea view from your sleek modern villa.
