Daybed, futon or headboard. What is The M?
It is hard to tell what The M really is, because it depends on how you choose to use it. Some people place it like a futon up against the wall and create an amazing spot to chill and relax. If you get tired you can use it as a daybed or an extra mattress for guests. Some people even do yoga and exercises on it. But why not mount it on the wall in your bedroom and use it as a luxurious headboard.
The wool version of The M comes in full wool on one side and partial leather on the other side (see example of partial leather version)
Focus to detail
The M is made in the finest handpicked wool and aniline leather. Every hide has its own unique story and natural markings.
Color and grain nuances are normal and can vary from hide to hide. There may also be minor scratches, wrinkles and healed scars on the leather even though the hides we order are premium selection. It is important to remember that the hide comes from livestock animals. In our world its authentic patina and we love it.
The padding consists of 2 different kinds of laser cut foam that have been handpicked and combined to make The M comfortable, durable and adaptable to its different purposes.
The leather handles make The M easy to move around and shape according to your mood. They also serve as loops for wall mounting if used as a headboard. Remember to buy headboard rings, hooks or bar separately in our shop
The M is inspired by the original gym mat used in gyms all over Europe in the 1930´s. Used to lessen the ‘sting’ or impact when a gymnast jumped off a pommel horse, beam or vault. Leather straps were placed on both sides to make it easier to move around and for easy attachment to a gym wall when not in use.
When the original leather mats resurfaced as an antique item and people began to buy and use them in various ways, but because it was not meant for being used as a piece of furniture it had some obvious limitations. It weighed 35kg (77lb) and was almost impossible to move around. It was bulky, asymmetrical after years wear and tear and not very comfortable.
We have redesigned it and transformed it into a piece of furniture that has multifunctional use and still have respect for the original look. It is a unique piece of furniture that can be used as a daybed, futon or a luxurious headboard. The big leather surface has no seams disturbing the eye. The M is a huge success around the world because it invites you to relax, ‘pull the plug’ and take it slow.
Made with love
All the materials used to make The M have one purpose – to make it look and feel cozy, homely and luxurious. The M represents superior quality, unique craftsmanship and a touch of Danish design.
