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!
This is probably one of the coolest and most impressive bedroom designs ever! I’m not nuts about the orange paint job in this room (because you know pink is my color) — and the ‘fondant-like’ drape of the colorless linens is a huge turn-off — but I sure do love the idea of sleeping on a bed that’s suspended over a small body of water. Sleeping is one of my favorite activities and I am sure that being cradled in such a nocturnal environment as this would inspire me to have very comforting dreams. Water beds have never really been my thing, but this I like!
