Need help with tv stand, coffee table, and bed frame recommendations.

uofo_112January 25, 2013
Looking for AFFORDABLE mid century modern to modern low bed frame with little to no headboard, low coffee table (prefer glass/acrylic but am open) and relatively low tv stand (house 54inch plasma). Would like all pieces to be on legs etc as I live in small studio. Starting from scratch with design. Currently have the following:
- Knock off rocking chair (white)
- knock off arco lamp with white marble base
- Dark Frey Florence style love seat

Don't want any thing black or dark brown as my apt easily collects dust.

Help?!

Do you have an IKEA nearby? They have a lot of stuff that would work. Just need the patience to put it together.

For the last 2 years my apartment was an ikea show room - looking for a different look and hoping avoid ikea items for the larger pieces. But thank you for the response.

Check out Room & Board, West Elm or CB2 for some moderately priced options...higher quality than IKEA.

I plan on keeping the bed in the orientation and location as you see in the above picture - to the right of the large window. I plan on using the space to the left of the bed to house the rocker creating a sitting area. I'd like the floor to ceiling to be the focal point of the small studio which is why I'm looking for a low profile Bed frame with legs to keep everything airy and flowing. I feel like a head board would creep to high but could be wrong.

I would definitely not get a headboard. It is very hard to see the really dark photo.

Yep - agree. Don't want to block the floor to ceiling window which I want to be the focal point.

Love the nesting tables..all your choices. Did you consider moving the TV unit to the wall to the right of where it is located in the last photo, closer to the kitchen area. Place the sofa back to the bed area, leaving enough room to walk between. Consider placing the TV on the red locker unit. The rocker in the corner of the room. Another table as any above could go on the wall where the TV is in the last picture. The Arco light between them. Very large artwork on the walls..next to the TV and on the adjacent wall over "other" table. If no table, you could add another small chair, maybe all acrylic. Place a splashy rug in the center of that area..large enough to cover floor from sofa to TV, and leave the area open to the kitchen. Choose a wall color in the greige family..fairly dark.
