Equally, in a small loft or studio, the Maly bed could also be used as a convivial space for entertaining or relaxing. The Maly bed is constructed around the idea of a vast central platform which is both soft and supple (slatted base, mattress and bedding), surrounded by horizontal planes for a more tautly rigorous geometric effect. The pillow/headboard cushions slide freely around the bed frame, allowing for a multitude of positions since there is no fixed way for the bed to be used.

A new edition of the bed which has been a Ligne Roset best-seller for more than two decades, the Peter Maly bed is aimed squarely at those whose priorities for their bedroom are the comfort, originality and aesthetics of their bed – those whose preference is for a pared-down bedroom offering generous space for rest and relaxation.
