This is the famous Ligne Roset "Maly Bed" that you see in virtually every designer magazine. I decided to check it out and see how cool it was in person. The answer is that it's pretty damn cool, but it has a few drawbacks.
the. cool. parts.
There is no fixed headboard on this bed. Instead there are movable back cushions that you can rearrange as needed. It also comes with optional pivoting tables. And the design, as you can see, is to die for. Simple. Elegant. Stylish.
The biggest drawback I saw is that the pivoting tables are not movable like the back cushions, and they're also not removable. If you're like me and you get up frequently and toss and turn a lot, that makes them very awkward obstructions most of the time, which rules out this bed. Too bad, too, because otherwise I like it a lot. The $5,000 price tag also seems a bit much for what you get.
