Platform Beds Joining the Online Community in 1999

The idea of PlatformBeds.com began back in 1998 when the internet was still quite young. The goal was to offer the same high quality products that were being offered in the store but reach out to customers online who were outside of the geographical area looking for platform beds. We knew there were customers who could benefit from these products and perhaps didn't have a store in their area that could provide these style of beds. In 1999, PlatformBeds.com was born.

PlatformBeds.com was one of several different websites created as an online extension of our physical store called "LifeStyles Furniture" which is located in Davenport Iowa which is part of the Quad Cities. The store itself specializes in modern contemporary furniture which includes several major brands of leather furniture, dining room furniture, home office, occasional tables, artwork, paintings and of course bedroom furniture or more specifically platform beds.

LifeStyles Furniture was originally founded by several individuals who had been part of the waterbed industry back in the 70's and 80's in Moline, Illinois. This helped provide the company with a great deal of experience in the way of bedroom furniture and specialty sleep products. The company began under the name Day Dreams Furniture in 1990 specializing specifically in futon furniture and platform style beds for several years. The company included experienced furniture professionals with decades of product knowledge among them as well as a positive approach to helping educate customers about these new trends in sleep products that were new to the general public. As the store grew over the next couple of years the name evolved from LifeStyles Furniture by Day Dreams to simply LifeStyles Furniture as it is called today.

Furniture Professionals - Product Knowledge

platform beds imageBack in 1999 there were just a handful of websites including ours which offered products online to customers all across the United States. We were among the first online stores and have had many years learning and improving our packaging and shipping techniques of products for safer transit as well as being able to select which products have been the most sought after or have proven to offer the most benefit to our customers.

When you call our store you'll talk to furniture professionals who work on our furniture showroom helping customers every day just like you. Our specialty sleep store professionals have had the opportunity to talk to folks with the same questions and concerns when out buying new furniture. Our staff has received training from all of our furniture suppliers on the products in our store and will be able to answer your questions both knowledgeably and confidently because they work with these products every day in person.

We can walk you through the different options and choices, delivery options, bed size benefits as well as answer your questions about what will work best in your home decor based on your furniture needs. In addition our staff has assembled the majority of bed brands you'll find on our website giving you an even greater resource when assembling your bed.

PlatformBeds.com - Davenport, Iowa Showroom

Platform Beds and LifeStyles Furniture both moved to our new 12,000 sq. ft. two floor showroom in the summer of 2011. This allowed for an expansion to the bedroom portion of the showroom and has allowed our store to better represent the many different brands of beds, casegoods and mattresses available.

We're pleased to have a dedicated space and store front with which customers can walk in and browse their favorite online selections in person. In the store you'll find various manufacturers and designs available in a large selection of sizes and finishes. Whether you're looking for American wood platform beds, modern platform beds, metal platform beds or even upholstered platform beds there is definitely something for everyone.

Our beds are available in twin, full, queen and king sizes as well as harder to find twin XL, full XL and California king sizes. In addition to platform bed frames we provide a large selection of viscoelastic, memory foam and latex mattress options throughout the showroom by several leading brands. Our mattresses are available in all standard sizes and many can also be ordered in extra long and custom sizes upon request.

Our Furniture Experience

bed imageWe strongly feel that "online only stores" miss out on the interaction between customer and product without a showroom. We think this is a huge disadvantage when it comes to talking about products and even evaluating them when speaking to customers. Because we have been offering many of the products on our website at a store level for over 20 years, we've had a chance to evaluate these products over time and in person. We've had many of these beds in our showroom and know the textures, construction and feel of each piece. Our furniture professionals are able to talk about the assembly of these beds because they've assembled them in person. They've been involved in furniture retail in showrooms for decades providing them experience with the many furniture brands as this is important in helping customers to evaluate their choices.

It especially helps us when talking to folks just like you through the years about their experiences with different brands we offer. We've taken your feedback in our showroom about different features and benefits of these beds over the years and this has helped us to select the highest quality products that you really want. This service and dedication to our local and online customers is something that "online only stores" can only dream about and is why PlatformBeds.com should be your source for new bedroom furniture. We invite you to browse our site of platform bed products and mattresses. If you're close to our store we invite you to stop in and shop our selection of bedroom furniture, living room furniture, dining room furniture and modern accessories in person. We look forward to seeing you.
