Softside Waterbeds give the comfort and support of a traditional waterbed, but with the look and style of a traditional mattress. Softside waterbeds provide complete full body support from head to toe with no pressure points and with the added value of heat.

This is the softside waterbed mattress my daughter chose for her bedroom at home. She picked the Laurel pillow top model and put it in a platform bed frame and topped it off with her favorite black and blue zebra bedding.

Bookcase Headboards & Drawer Pedestals

These bookcase headboards work great with any of our softside waterbeds and all regular mattresses but not woodframe style waterbeds. They are free standing so all you have to do is place them behind your mattress and metal frame and you're done. No assembly required. You can also use them with our drawer pedestals as shown.
 
  The 6-drawer pedestals feature full-extension glides allowing you to use every inch of drawer space creating storage under the bed with more capacity than a full size dresser! They also have two hidden cubby storage areas. These drawer pedestals are strong enough to easily support a softside waterbed and can be used with our free standing bookcase headboards or as a stand alone platform bed without a headboard. They can be used with any type of mattress but are not compatible with wood frame style waterbeds.
