Over the last few years, “modular” has become a catchy concept in A&D: there’s modular storage and modular sofas, modular kitchen cabinetry and modular contract furniture, there’s even modular lighting systems, so why not modular beds? Manufacturer Schramm has taken the lead in exploiting this niche—their Gala Bed Program offers the tantalizing possibility of a uniquely customized place of repose.

Schramm’s Gala Program Lets You Build Your Own Bed
Though perhaps “build” isn’t the best word, since that implies a modicum of manual effort. To the contrary, Schramm’s Gala Bed Program simply allows you to specify all the different elements—mattress, headboard, frame, valance, and feet—and Schramm puts it all together.
The more pragmatic options include bed width (from 80 to 200 cm), single or double mattresses, and optional storage capacity. Of course, these choices are tantamount to devising a comfortable sleep set, yet perhaps Gala’s aesthetic variety will inspire even greater excitement.
Perusing a few of Gala’s vast assortment of headboards, panels, and valences, one quickly senses the enormous range of stylistic possibility. From plush, padded options that evoke Victorian luxury, to modern streamlined styles with visible feet, Gala has something for every sensibility.
The Gala panel frame is available in wood/varnish options, with padded upholstery, or with a valance. Schramm also offers the Gala Sleep Program with Schramm’s patented Sleep-System motorized adjustable base mattress. Five movable elements allow users to manipulate the mattress in order to achieve enhanced comfort—“Whether you are watching television, reading, or relaxing your legs or back, you can move the bed silently and stagelessly into any desired position.”
About the Manufacturer: The short version of Schramm’s guiding objective and philosophy is that they make beds. The longer version is that this manufacturer of bed frames, headboards, adjustable sleep systems, and accompanying accessories has revolutionized sleep. That may sound like a tall order, but the company has accomplished it through innovation, foresight, and creative ingenuity: “sleep products breaking the path by their technical and functional consistency, their natural flexibility and their incomparable sleep environment.”
