walden is a brand of visions,
inspired by the Waldenity approach to life.
WALDENITY - the identity of walden, inspired by the book walden - or living in the woods, written by Henry David Thoreau,1854.

Dealing with the chaos of everyday life is already stressful enough. A walden furniture is the ideal way to compensate for this as it brings the feel and smell of nature into homes in an indulgent feast for the senses. This is WALDENITY.

The aim was to design bedroom furniture, that last for many years without losing its natural beauty and functionality. According to walden philosophy one of the core concerns was that no harm comes to you, the environment or the manufacturer during the entire production and life cycle of your furniture. 


Bed legs inspired by types. The fundamental concept behind the beds is inspired by graphic elements. The angled design of the legs is something all three beds have in common. Since the design is rooted in typography, the different versions of the beds are named, ranging from delicate lines to solid constructions: light, regular and bold.


The reduced surfaces and the delicate
legs make this timelessly elegant bed appear to float on air.

This is the new interpretation of the traditional slatted bed. The headboard combined with the slanted design of the seamlessly integrated legs allows you to lean back and relax.

This minimalistic, functional bed contains the largest amount of wood. The slightly slanted headboard is extremely robust, with a floating design and light weight appearance.
