When I saw 12 Cool and Stylish Modern Beds I had to click on it and check it out. I love contemporary and modern furnishings, so I thought this would be something I would really enjoy. It was! (These are the beds that hold the mattresses, not the actual mattresses that go on the bed.)
My first thought when I saw the photos of the beds was that they belong in a modern art museum. (Click the above link to see the beds.) My second thought was that I bet they cost a fortune. The only one I could find a price on was the Ceiling bed Bedup system which stores the bed at the ceiling and drops it down when it’s time to sleep. I thought it would be a great idea for those who have to live in a studio apartment. When I found out it the Bedup system started at $4300 I thought – Anyone who could afford $4300 for a bed probably isn’t staying in a studio apartment.
Two of my other favorites – the Egg Bed, which looks like something out of Star Trek or some other funky futuristic show, and the Floating Platform Bed, which I probably could have made in 8th grade shop, but I loved its simplicity. The Jetsons have nothing on all these beds. They are definitely futuristic, funky, and fun!
A cool bed is fun, but what is more important when it comes to comfortable sleep is your mattress. Two specialty beds that are becoming more and more popular due to their comfort and features are the natural latex mattress and the air bed.
