BenchMade Modern Crowd Pleaser Bed review

  • December 17, 2023

Ordering a bed on the Internet is no easy task. An investment in your comfort, sleep quality and overall well-being, it’s a process that demands time, dedication and thorough research. So when I decided to purchase the nearly $3,000 BenchMade Modern Crowd Pleaser Bed, it was with the solemn knowledge that this splurge was going to be life-changing.

As the director of social here at CNN Underscored, a bed is not just where I sleep but a workspace and a hub for much of my daily activity. Whether I’m cocooned in blankets scrolling through TikTok or perched on a pile of pillows with a laptop, I take my bed extremely seriously.

I chose the BenchMade Modern Crowd Pleaser Bed because in addition to being fully customizable and handcrafted in the US, the company is also known for its short delivery time, which in the days of post-Covid, supply-chain woes, is worth a consideration. Here’s everything you need to know about this buzzy, design-forward bed, even though it won’t come cheap.

The BenchMade Modern Crowd Pleaser Bed may be a splurge, but its solid craftsmanship, full customization and quick delivery time is well worth the cost.

Having previously tested a sofa from BenchMade Modern, I was well acquainted with the seemingly unlimited customizable design options and the no-hassle delivery and assembly process — both invaluable aspects when shopping for such a large piece of furniture.

The Crowd Pleaser Bed goes beyond a mere bed frame. And for the price, this makes perfect sense. Seamlessly blending functionality with a solid sense of sturdiness, it is handcrafted with double-strength slats, so it feels solid and unmovable, no matter how many people, kids and even pets pile on to it. The high-quality bouclé fabric is soft to the touch and the bed’s slightly rounded
