The bedroom is the most important room in my home, because sleeping is my jam, and it is the room where I let the decor most specifically reflect my tastes and personality. Is my bed pink? Hell yes, it is; but sadly my bed is not quite as fantastically pink as this bed you see pictured here, which is called the Lisi Bed. I first learned of the Lisi Bed via an email, and when I requested further information on this righteous bed — because I knew I had to feature it — the manufacturer sent me the press release noted below. Read on.
Like Sleeping on a Cloud
“Virna Lisi started her film career in her early teens in Rome. Though Lisi turned down a role in From Russia with Love, the Hollywood producers were scouting a new Marilyn Monroe, so Lisi debuted in Hollywood comedy movies. Inspired by the Hollywood Golden Era vibes, Ottiu designers conceived the mid-century modern Lisi bed. Structured in walnut wood, its curved headboard is dressed up in a smooth pastel cotton velvet and presents polished brass nails that embellish even more its glamorous design. By featuring the Mid-century Modern Lisi bed, you will have the inviting bedroom you always dreamt about.” They are not kidding.
It is so beautiful. The Lisi Bed was designed by a group of designers in-house at Ottiu, a luxury furniture brand which is based in Portugal, has a list price of 4.350,00€ (approximately $5,259). Sigh.
I feel no shame in confessing that the highlight of my day — and I do mean every single day — is the moment I slip into my bed after being swept away by too much TV and snuggle in the darkness with my pillows and comforter until I achieve full comfort, and drift off into a marvelously dream-filled sleep. Because sleeping is my jam. I once had a dream where my bed became a car, and I took to the streets for the day’s adventures with no one seeming to even notice that my vehicle was, in fact, a bed. Unlike those stress-dreams where you are either naked or sitting on a toilet in public, it was awesome.
It is surely no surprise then that the video for “Yoko Ono,” from a brand new LA-based musical duo called Moby Rich (because those are their names) sold me at around the 50 second mark, as Moby (and) Rich take the John-and-Yoko-Bed-In theme to a delightful extreme. I predict you will also sit totally rapt as the duo – still clad in color-coordinating blue pajamas — cruise in their tiwn beds out onto the streets of downtown LA while singing about their dream of finding an ideal other — a “Yoko Ono Muse” if you will — who completes them. Can you even imagine how much fucking fun this video was to film? I can’t even.
Aurally, “Yoko Ono” is a stone groove: a wistful love song floating in on a trip-hop beat that’s just the perfect mix of electronica and blue-eyed soul that would turn Daryl Hall green with envy. I fucking love it, and I think you will as well. “Yoko Ono” the single is out now on TaP Records, and it will eventual show up on the duo’s forthcoming debut EP. Enjoy!
