“ We think the DUKEN bed frame is beautiful

on its own, but the fact that it can be

renewed and changed with fabric covers is

also fun. That makes it something special.”

To make the new DUKEN bed behave

more like a sofa, we gave it a comfortable

headboard that’s easy on reclining backs

and removable, changeable padded fabric

covers. What makes the headboard frame

so comfortable is the plastic mesh that’s

stretched across it, shaped with a subtle

curve for your back. We got the idea to

use plastic mesh after we decided not to

use foam rubber. Usually used for

outdooor chairs, the plastic mesh is very

easy to keep clean if you don’t want to put

covers on DUKEN. To make the shape of

the footboard soft too, we used a new

technique that allowed us to skip putting

caps on the ends of the steel pipes and

instead get a continuous, rounded form

without any loose parts.

The padded cover comes in two

patterns designed by Anna Svanfeldt

Hillervik: one grey with white dots and one

with a large water lily pattern. “I wanted

to create a pattern that was graphic, but

also a bit playful,” she says. “The water

lilies on the DUKEN IDSE cover make me

feel happy! And the dots on the DUKEN

FOGN cover become like wave formations

in a stream.” To wash the cover, it’s easy

to take off and put back on because of the

headboard’s angle, the rounded corners

and the hook and loop fasteners on the


Both covers match STENKLÖVER duvet

covers that Anna has designed, too. “What

was fun about designing the patterns for


Available in gray or red that match DUKEN headboard

covers, STENKLÖVER duvet covers and pillowcases are

reversible, too, so you can change the look from day to


the headboard on the DUKEN bed frame,

was knowing that there would also be

matching bed linen and rugs to go with

them,” Anna says. “That makes the bed an

integrated part of the look in a bedroom.”
