Over the past year, Article has become a Domino reader go-to for mid-range, modern-leaning staples like dining chairs, sleeper sofas, and one RHONY-approved bench. Lately the brand has even begun to debut linen and cotton bedding as well as outdoor furniture. Still, it was missing one important item. Recently customers started asking—insistently—for smaller sizes in the company’s best-selling beds, and Article took note. This week, it introduces a trio of styles in twin and full sizes, and we’re particular fans of the Basi, a crowd-pleasing, low-slung floating frame.

Fun fact: Twin beds are more versatile than you think. Here’s what makes this small-space sweetie stand out, and all the ways to make it work beyond a kid’s room. 

The Nuts and Bolts

For one, it’s crafted with a high-quality veneer frame and outfitted with solid wood legs and solid plywood slats. Multiple reviewers of other Basi sizes have remarked on the make, referring to it as “very sturdy,” “very well built,” and “a solid piece of furniture.” While labeled as mid-century modern in style, we think it’s suitable for a variety of interiors. The white, for instance, could jell with a beachy or cottagecore aesthetic, while the oak has a transitional feel to it. When compared to other brands in the same price range, Article’s twin beds (at $299) come in on the budget end without sacrificing design or reading rickety. 

Another thing we love? The estimated ship times for each item are specific to your location and shown right on the product page. Speaking of delivery, there’s a flat-rate fee of $49 anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. Once your box is in-room, the Basi should be able to be assembled in an hour. (Most reviewers agree with that, but some said it took them another 30 minutes.)

How We’d Style It

Twin frames and mattresses are often relegated to a child’s room, but we say: Free the twin bed! Break it out of predictable settings and fashion it as a daybed in an office; build a corner reading spot in an awkwardly sized nook or hall; or place two in a guest room to squeeze in one more person. The Basi’s no-headboard construction and low 12-inch height make it a perfect candidate for all the ideas above. A 6-inch clearance also offers some storage underneath, where you could stash books, extra linens, or even gym equipment.
