Floyd Bed Review: What to Know Before You Buy


Floyd’s The Bed Frame, which starts at around $1,000 for a full/queen size (without a headboard), is a platform frame, which means it’s designed for a mattress to sit directly on top of it (don’t add a box spring). The bed’s design is impressively simple, composed of birch plywood panels that slot together with steel supports. Nylon straps beneath the platform panels hold the supports in tension, which allows the frame to hold up to 600 pounds of weight. The plywood panels, each about 2 feet wide, have a “honeycomb” internal structure, a design that Floyd says provides strength without density, keeping the components lightweight for their size. You can choose from a birch, walnut, or American oak veneer and either white or black powder coated steel hardware (Floyd also offers some color options for the panels). Gaps between the boards allow airflow under the mattress, though not as much as on some other, slatted frames, which I discuss below. The frame comes in twin, full/queen, and king sizes (two, three, and four panels wide, respectively) and can support all mattress sizes up through California king.
