The evolution of beds has generally gone from basic and temporary sleeping surfaces to substantial pieces of furniture. It's items like the Trestle Bed, however, that represent a modern idea about household movables that facilitates lightness and adaptability.

Designer Michael Bernard has put together a simple wooden frame with slender slats that are intended to accommodate the dimensions of the rectangular mattress. The user may choose to lay this directly on the floor for a low-to-the-ground place to relax and rest. In order to elevate the Trestle Bed from ankle-height, the creator provides a set of six metal braces that are bent into stable truss shapes. These can be easily clipped to the timber without hardware, sufficing to support the weight of the cushions and the sleeper.
