Known for its luxury linens for bed, bath and tabletop, Matouk has fulfilled its longstanding dream of designing furniture with a collection of three free-standing upholstered beds intended to complete its “perfect bed” story.

“I think upholstered beds were the perfect place for Matouk to enter the furniture space,” said Meg Woodhouse, director of marketing for Matouk. “We have such a strong connection to fabric and texture and these beds each make a great canvas for so many Matouk sheets and top of bed items.”

The designs include Coco, a bed that lends a touch of femininity to a traditional, button-tufted style; Sebastian, with sharp angles and decorative nail head trim; and Sarah, a pared-down silhouette featuring a modern update on classic tufting.

"The Coco bed, for example, with its curved and tufted headboard and low profile and clean-lined footboard, is a perfect example of both masculine and feminine and attention to detail,” said Woodhouse.

Sarah design

Each of the beds is manufactured in the U.S., incorporating sustainable and environmentally friendly materials and practices. All three styles are offered in a range of sizes and a variety of colors and/or fabrics. They can be made to order in eight weeks and prices range from $2,950 - $4,450.

For the time being, the collection is available exclusively through Matouk and Matouk retail partners, and while there are no immediate plans to continue on with furniture design, Woodhouse says the intention is to expand the line over time.
