Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek —a Remodelista favorite—has collaborated with Dutch eco-bedding line Yumeko to design three handmade beds to complement the "luxurious simplicity" of the Yumeko brand. The beds—in copper, oak, and powder-coated steel—are the bedding company's first foray into furniture. For more from the designer, Shop Piet Hein Eek on Remodelista.  Photography by  Aico Lind  for Yumeko.  Above: A copper-plated steel bed.  Above: The attached headboard is lined with felt from a traditional felt maker in Portugal; it's not dyed, but is the same ivory color of the sheep's wool. Above: Hein Eek's wooden bed is made of FSC-certified solid European oak. The wood is left unvarnished to show the grain and warm color of the oak.  Above: At the juncture of each bed leg, brass screws give the wooden bed a glamorous detail.  Above: Hein Eek's metal bed is gray powder-coated steel. The headboard is lined with the same Portuguese felt as in the copper bed, this time of naturally brown sheep's wool. Above: The brass and steel beds are the same basic design, with diagonal steel reinforcements at each leg.   Above: The beds are made by hand in Piet Hein Eek's workshop in Eindhoven, Netherlands.  For more from Piet Hein Eek, see:  Scrapwood by Piet Hein Eek in NYC Design Sleuth: Piet Hein Eek at the Wallpaper Collective Children's Rooms: Piet Hein Eek Furniture Slow Design: Fair Trade Originals from Piet Hein Eek More Stories from Remodelista New Naturals for Fall from Coyuchi 10 Favorites: Hanging Beds (Plus a $350 DIY Project) 10 Easy Pieces: Modern Wood Dressers
