The Floyd Bed is a modular bed that is easy to set up and takedown making ideal for people in small spaces or tend to move frequently. It is proudly designed in Detroit and doesn’t require any tools to assemble.  This bed can transform from a twin all the way to a king-size just by adding panels. You don’t have to discard the bed as your needs change. Not only is this the perfect solution for all those bed in a box mattresses out there crying for a quality bed frame, it just makes sense as people tend to be more mobile these days.

 

Overview of the Floyd Bed

The Floyd Bed can be purchased directly through their website. Items in stock will ship the next day so expect it to arrive quickly to your door. The bed also comes with a 30-day trial so if you don’t like it for whatever reason, it’s a free return. Should you decide to keep it, you get a 10-year warranty on any of the parts. Since this has few parts to begin with, it’s unlikely that you will experience problems, but if you do, you are covered and can get replacement parts under the terms of the warranty. What’s nice about this bed is that it is portable and you can get it into tight spaces. The bed and headboard arrived in these boxes.

Construction of the Floyd Bed

Floyd Bed Construction
Real Birch
We utilize all-natural Grade-A birch plywood for our panels, made with care in Virginia. Our panels are CARB-2 certified; our products do not emit any VOC’s. It’s a timeless material, used for its durability and strength by design pioneers such as Ray & Charles Eames and Alvar Aalto.
Steel Supports
The supports are made from powder-coated steel. Each steel support is made from a series of 8 bends from a single piece of steel, which reduces waste in the production process.
Nylon Ratchet Straps
The ratchet straps complete the system, securing the panels and supports for rigidity. No creaking!
Cotton Canvas
Made with a strong canvas that holds up to 100 lbs, it’s perfect for stashing late-night reading materials, fresh top sheets, or all of your mismatched socks (we hope you don’t have 100+ lbs of mismatched socks!).

Floyd is an ideal bed if you live a more mobile lifestyle and are tired of moving bulky furniture. You can expect some damage to your furniture during a move, it’s just a part of the process. With the Floyd, it’s easy to disassemble and reduce the chances it will get banged up.

Setting up the bed is super simple and I appreciate that Floyd used much less styrofoam in their packaging than other beds I have unboxed.

I received a queen size for review which includes 3 platform bases that you align vertically and attach with metal connectors.

There’s no nails, screws or glue required.

It’s the same process with the stands for the corners of the bed.

The whole bed is held together with two straps at the head and foot of the bed. I found this to be the most cumbersome part of the setup. I don’t normally use ratchets so it took some time to loop it correctly and to get it tight enough on the frame. Granted, if I were to do this again it wouldn’t take as long but keep in mind there is a little bit of a  learning curve.

Here’s what it looks like all set up, without the headboard which you can purchase separately.

The headboard was the easiest piece to install. The metal base pieces slide in between the slats so make sure that the strap holding them all together is loose enough then tighten the strap again and rest the headboard on the metal pieces and screw it in to secure it.

My Floyd Bed Recommendation

Since the introduction of the bed, Floyd has introduced a bunch of other furniture for your home, all around the concept of easy setup and takedown. I like the modern look of the bed and the fact that you can expand it into a king size by adding another slat or removing one for a twin size bed.  Keep in mind that the frame sits low to the ground which can make it a little harder to get out of if you are tall like me. I recommend Floyd for people in urban spaces where flexibility is a premium. Often people buy new furniture after a major life event like moving, getting married, divorced or having kids. This bed makes it possible to get a bigger or smaller mattress without having to get rid of your frame.
