    You could make one! The structure looks fairly simple to replicate if you have access to the wood/tools. You can get similar legs [on amazon](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XZWZJVF/ref=twister_B06Y1DSNWD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) (I’ve used these on a table)

    Hey everyone! I found [this very elegant bed](https://areahome.com/collections/all/bruno-bed#furniture) on AREA home. I really like it in the light ash color, but it is quite far out of my price range (it is ~$3800). Does anybody know of any cheaper alternatives? Ideally in the $300-600 range. Thanks so much

    This isn’t too terribly similar, but has some similar qualities: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06WWF1P78/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I got this bed for our guest room and it looks really great imo. Maybe you can look for something similar but in the light ash? Good luck!

    I own a [Modernica Case Study](https://modernica.net/shop/bedroom/case-studyr-v-leg-bed) bed, and I recommend against getting a bed that uses hairpin legs (Modernica calls them V-legs) like the one in your photo.

    There are two problems with hairpins on beds. First, their surface area is minimal, which means there’s minimal friction. Your bed will constantly glide around the floor.

    Secondly, they’re made of metal, and the movement will cause them to dig into the floor. Wood, concrete, carpet, it doesn’t matter, the legs will cause damage.

    You can’t attach normal felt pads to the legs, so the only possible remedy is [hairpin leg gliders](https://www.etsy.com/listing/196964048/hairpin-leg-glides-set-of-4). These are great, but they don’t fix the gliding problem, they tend to fall off now and then, and they make the bed look less elegant.

    The only real solution for a hairpin-leg bed is to bolt the whole bed securely to the wall.

    Cheaper to make. And its a really easy project too. Get the legs on etsy. 2x4s for edges and solid piece for the top. Stain to desired color.

    Talk to your local woodworker, that bed looks really easy to replicate once a set of legs is found.

    Kind of unrelated question, when looking at Scandinavian bed frames, they all seem to use a thin mattress and I worry that the mattress I have will look ‘oversized’ for the frame. Is that just a photo thing or do they use thinner mattresses for photos?
