In the heart of Woollongabba hides a restored 1950's sawtooth warehouse, that is the Kyoto styled Studio and Gallery of Zen Beds & Sofas. Here you will discover artisan woodworker Dan Walker and his small dedicated team. Since 1990 they've been designing and creating solid wood furniture using certified sustainable timbers almost exclusively sourced from local plantations.

Dan first exhibited a talent for woodwork in early childhood, and has honed his craft ever since. Drawing upon Eastern and Western design principles and construction methods, Dan is strongly influenced by dozens of visits to Japan. His creative philosophy focuses on the bedroom as your personal sanctuary: a space within the home in which one revitalises their body, mind and soul. The sophisticated elegance of the furniture is achieved by practicing a Japanese aesthetic philosophy referred to as, Wabi Sabi. In combining refined design simplicity and natural materials, with skilled hands, Dan creates boutique pieces. Zenbeds want you to see, touch, and feel the wood's warmth and energy, and the care and attention of the craftsman. The superior quality of each bespoke item, is further enhanced through the use of modern German hand power tools, ensuring accuracy when guided by each experienced maker. Such attention to handcrafted detail, and sensitivity towards calming and revitalising the body, is what makes this independent workshop's artisan output so unique.

Further complimenting Zen Beds & Sofas woodwork is an extensive range of pure and natural latex and futon mattresses, also all created in house.
