The world’s coolest beds
Interior designers Private Cloud have created a gorgeous bed that is designed to rock you to sleep. There are two models. The first is a bed in a full circle, which is great for larger rooms. But if you are a little stuck for space, there is a second model that does not have the huge canopy and is simply a bed on rockers.
Designer Daniele Lago has created a bed that is only attached to the wall it is against, giving the impression it is floating. The idea is to remove any distractions from the room. The floating bed is ideal for anyone who wants a simple room where they can relax and reflect.
The hamburger bed is a big round bed topped with everything you could ever want in a burger. The base of the bed is the heel of the bun, you are the bit in the middle – the burger – and on top go the sheets and cushions in the shape of lettuce, tomato, cheese and the crown of the bun. A must for food lovers.
Hammocks come in all shapes and sizes, including huge hammock beds that are bigger than your standard double. Imagine having one hanging in a library or a games room!
There are many examples of beds made from real cars. They are much cooler than the little car beds you may remember from your childhood. Think of it as a major DIY project. Find a car that no longer works but still has good body work and take it from there.
The magnetic bed uses industrial-strength magnets to give the impression it is floating. The bed can safely hold 900kg and remain ‘floating’ above the ground. That’s more than enough to hold you, a loved one and all your bedding. It would look amazing in a modern — or even futuristic — home. You would need a lot of space to make it work, but the effect would be striking.
Sonic speaker bed
This ingenious piece of design is a portable venue for music lovers. The whole thing is a speaker. Simply lie down and let the music move through you. It is a wonderful experience for anyone who loves music and the feeling of the bass that comes with it.
The bed to cure insomnia
Mathieu Lehanneur has designed a bed that is surrounded by special curtains. Climb into the bed and the curtains automatically close around you, obscuring outside light and noise. The temperature inside drops slowly while low level white noise plays in the background. Together, all these elements have been shown to help people sleep better. The bed is usually used in a clinical environment, but imagine how great it would be to get a good night’s sleep every night.
