What is a floating bed frame?

A floating bed frame is a bed that appears to be floating above the ground. A floating style bed gives off a minimalist modern aesthetic while adding an open airy feeling to a room. Floating beds are most commonly seen as woodworking tutorials on Youtube. After these tutorials became popular many companies then added floating beds to their product lines. 

Are floating beds stable?

Yes, floating bed frames are just as sturdy, if not more sturdy, than a standard bed frame. While it appears to be floating above the ground, most floating beds actually have a very strong support. You are unable to see the support because it is hidden in the shadows of the frame. 

How does a floating bed frame actually "float"??

While a floating bed appears to magically hovering above the ground, in reality it is not. The support system is simply hidden towards the center of the bed, in the shadows. To the eye you cannot see the support, giving the impression that the bed is hovering above the ground.
