Japandi design began in the 1950s. After 220 years of a closed border policy, Danish designers began traveling to Japan, and their designs started getting influenced by an Asian aesthetic. Japanese and Scandinavian design styles already shared a love of simplicity, minimalism and natural materials, so it’s no wonder the two were combined together in a new style. You’ll see these three traits in the 15 Japandi bedframes we curated below, and notice how the subtlety of design details makes each one an artful contribution to your bedroom.
Solid Pine Japandi Bed Frame
Available in a light oak or caramel stain, this solid pine wood Japandi bed frame supports up to 400 lbs. The height of the footboard is 20.5” and requires an 8” mattress thickness to rise above the footboard.
As with most Japandi bed frames, this one is a platform bed that doesn’t require a box spring for support. This means the top of your mattress is typically closer to the ground and with low clearance between the bottom of the frame and the floor — usually around 12”. This can make for a firmer mattress experience.
Japandi Canopy Bed Frame
Available in four sizes, this low-profile canopy Japandi bed is made from solid dark pine wood. When fully assembled, the canopy top rail height stands at 77”, just over seven feet high. Wooden slats support a mattress and people up to 800 lbs.
Although the base of this bed sits just over 7” from the floor, the glorious canopy rails make going to bed the highlight of the day. To feel even more like you’re “getting away from it all,” add softening drapes that will billow in the breeze from your window. Just make sure any lighting or ceiling fan blades don’t interfere with the drapery.
Dark Wood Japandi Bed Frame
With built-in nightstands that extend past the frame, this solid wood Japandi bed frame sits extra low to the floor. The top of the faux leather headboard sits at 38.5” high and looks best with a 10” thick mattress. This bed frame is suitable for an adjustable mattress.
The dark wood finish on this bed frame creates drama and contrasts perfectly with white bedding. In keeping with the Japandi design aesthetic, the more minimalist the bedding is, the better. A simple duvet that doesn’t hang past the mattress and two pillows are all you need to get the look exactly right. While you can add a box spring for extra support, much of the headboard would be hidden.
Solid Oak Japandi Bed Frame
This Japandi bed frame is crafted from solid Malaysian oak with a rich American walnut veneer. Wood slats holding up the mattress sit flush with the rest of the base, with extra vertical supports holding up the center of the bed. Under bed clearance is 12”.
Available in a natural, walnut or black stain finish, your bedding color choices include light and luminous whites or light grays, along with more earthy tones like brown or olive green. The more Scandinavian-inspired Japandi color palettes also include muted pinks, blues or greens for calm and meditative spaces. The look of a tucked bed covering is also right on point, Japandi-wise.
Spindle headboard Japandi Bed Frame
This Japandi bed frame is made from solid oiled teak and needs only occasional cleaning. To maintain the natural brown color, clean every six months with a teak wood cleaner available at your local hardware store. A deep cleaning is needed every two to three years, followed by an application of teak oil.
With a headboard that stands just over 24” high, this stunning bed can even sit in front of most windows without blocking the glass. One of the highest values of the Japandi style is the importance of natural texture, so think linen, bamboo or cotton for your bedding needs. Another is its stripped down, minimalist look, with every object having a purpose and looking beautiful doing so.
Sunken Japandi Bed Frame
The slat kit included with this Japandi bed frame sits 8” below the engineered wood side rails to allow most of your mattress to disappear into the frame. The 47 slats sit .88” apart and support up to 617 lbs, including the weight of the mattress.
Sled leg Japandi Bed Frame
The beautiful sled leg design is repeated at the top of the headboard in this solid oak wood Japandi bed frame. It comes in four sizes, and the manufacturer recommends purchasing a mattress with a maximum 12” depth. The frame comes with two center support legs and a 10.7” under bed clearance.
Beige Japandi Oak Bed Frame
This naturally finished, solid oak wood Japandi bed frame shows off the wood’s unique whorls and grain. The bed frame does not support an adjustable mattress, and the suggested mattress thickness is 12”. Full assembly is required for this mortise and tenon-built bed.
Bamboo Japandi Bed Frame
The natural bamboo bed frame is stained to reveal the unique textures of this wood, officially classified as a grass. A slat support system includes a center rail with two support legs. Partial assembly is required with all tools included with the bed’s delivery.
Ultimate Weight bearing Japandi Bed Frame
Requiring partial assembly, this bed will come together much easier with two people. Made of solid bamboo, it comes in two finish options: natural and walnut. The Japandi bed frame can support up to 1200 lbs and includes two center support legs.
Japandi Bed Frame with Linen Detail
We love the 100% natural linen cutout detail on the headboard of this Japandi bed frame that comes in either a walnut or gray wash wood stain. The recommended mattress thickness for this bed is 8” with a total bed weight capacity of 440 lbs, including the mattress.
Cherry Japandi Solid Pine Bed Frame
Made from solid pine wood stained a reddish-brown, this Japandi low-profile bed comes in all four bed sizes. It requires full assembly, and the headboard can be left off if desired. The headboard can be adjusted to the level that suits your existing mattress.
Eco conscious Japandi Bed Frame
Ergonomic side rails keep your mattress from sliding on this low-profile Japandi bed frame. The foundation comes with wood-end slats and embedded tapes to prevent the slats from shifting during the night. This solid Acacia wood frame uses certified non-toxic paint for the chocolate and caramel color finish.
Low profile Japandi Bed Frame
A truly Zen bed, this Japandi bed frame sits on a paneled wood base without the need for slats. This bed does not have either a headboard or footboard and only comes in the queen size as shown. It’s made from manufactured wood and comes in four color options: charcoal gray, rustic cinnamon, white or espresso.
Japandi Bed Frame in Six Size Options
Three Posts™ Teen
Along with a traditional twin, full, queen and king offering, this Japandi solid wood bed frame comes in an extra-long twin as well as a California king size. The extra-long twin gives you an extra six inches in length, and the full length of the California king is 89”.
