A Stylish Way to Sleep: The Floyd Platform Bed and Headboard

Putting together a bed frame can be a painful process, especially if it’s bulky and heavy with the need for screws and tools. Sometimes assembling one can feel just as complicated as if you built it yourself. Taking it apart can be a hassle, too, when it’s time to move to a new place–not so with the Floyd Platform Bed.

The folks at Detroit-based Floyd know the challenges that come with modern urban living. We want fast, simple, and easy. That’s why they developed the Floyd Platform Bed. You don’t need any screws or tools, and it comes with a 10-year warranty. Now, in addition to the Floyd Platform Bed, which consists of three birch panels with a honeycomb core and black or white metal supports, there’s a headboard that can be added, so you can read books or tinker with your iPad or computer with ease.

“Listening to what our customers want is at the heart of Floyd’s business model and following the success of our platform bed, requests for a matching headboard to compliment the frame started pouring in,” said Floyd CEO/co-founder Kyle Hoff. “Our goal has always been for Floyd to design for how people are truly living, so it’s thrilling for our customers to be engaged in our brand’s growth.”

We wanted to see just how easy it was to put together the bed, and we can confirm that it wasn’t difficult at all. We recommend having two people around to make the process faster. It probably took 20 minutes from start to finish, with the most difficult part being wrapping the straps around the supports. When it came time to attaching the headboard, the the two brackets didn’t fit exactly with the bed panels (perhaps the wood had expanded), so we had to hammer them in. Other than that, the process was fast, simple and painless. Plus, you have that sleek, minimal look that that goes with it.

The 11 best Ryan Reynolds movies – Deadpool, Buried, and more
As a Ryan Reynolds fan, you must see all of his top films listed here
Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool in Deadpool and Wolverine.

"I don’t expect success. I prepare for it." Wise and self-fulfilling words from our guy, Ryan Reynolds, one of Canada’s sweethearts. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Reynolds dreamed of getting out of there early in his life, not to abandon his family or hometown, but to act. True to his words, he and a fellow Vancouver actor impulsively took to the road one night with one destination: Los Angeles. After taking the first step in following his dreams, his car was stripped and robbed on his first night in L.A. Did that stop our fearless protagonist? Indeed not. After just a few months, Reynolds was landing roles all over town, working whenever he could. Five years later, he finally got a leading role with a recognizable name, a college comedy called Van Wilder: Party Liaison. That movie didn’t make our list today, but it's only because Reynolds has been busy making an array of better movies ever since.
Most would agree that Ryan Reynolds brings a familiar presence in both appearance and demeanor to most of his films, but when you get a frame that fits just right, you get some great Ryan Reynolds features. That is why we’ve compiled a list of the best Ryan Reynolds movies. It should also be known that these movies were chosen for the movie quality and watchability, not just for the most Ryan of the Reynolds’ performances.

Just Friends (2005)

AT&T has not provided the reason why the network is down, and for now, it recommends that all customers take advantage of Wi-Fi calling, if necessary, until services are restored.
