Iconic, timeless and chic; this is Nathalie by Flou. Nathalie is the iconic double bed originally designed in 1978 by Vico Magistretti for Flou, precisely the same year the brand was set up. Flash forward all these years later, Nathalie is still as popular as ever; this is due to its streamlined silhouette, modern aesthetics and romantic style. Most of all, it’s Nathalie’s practicality what makes it extremely current.


What is it? Nathalie by Flou is a double bed with under bed storage. 

What is special about it? When it was first designed in 1978, Nathalie’s under bed storage represented true innovation. Now, Nathalie is the archetypal bed with removable fabric cover, a timeless piece perfect for any décor.

How is it made? Removable cover available in fabric, eco-leather or leather, fastened with Velcro, padded frame, reclinable headboard and under bed storage for all your linen and night-time accessories. Nathalie is available with a choice of rigid base, Comfort base, under bed storage, fixed base (16 cm, 25 cm high) or an electric motion bed frame.

Who is it by? Without a doubt, iconic architect and designer Vico Magistretti has played a crucial role in redefining contemporary aesthetics, receiving throughout the years many Compasso d’Oro awards. His innovative style focuses on experimenting with cutting edge materials, spatial awareness and different shapes and features, a unique style not  influenced by passing fads or fashions.

We have chosen it because… A real icon of style, Nathalie’s timeless aesthetics are what make it a truly remarkable piece. Even though it was designed almost 40 years ago, Nathalie is still an extremely contemporary piece, and its versatility makes it suitable for any décor and space requirement.
