Platform beds are the much healthier, far more attractive version yet possibly the trend equivalent of the 1970s waterbed.

Furniture designers are turning them into self-sufficient islands, bachelor-ready suites, floating squares, and textured clouds. Beds like these by Italian Presotto
, a modular furniture design firm, offers innumerable combinations of texture, style, and color. The firm uses leather or wood, curvilinear or rectangular headboards, floating squares, or massive furniture pieces that seem self-sufficient with night tables and couch-like platforms.
