Storage Beds

February 10, 2009

I have a thing for beds with built in storage underneath. It looks clean, simple and stops the unavoidable build up of junk under your bed (which I have tons of). This is my current favorite.

Folded Bed

June 18, 2008

Slim and modern the bed sits low to the ground to minimize its presence. Both sides of the headboard diverge into symmetrical end tables that include semi translucent plastic panels. Each panel allows for rear lighting, perfect for reading in bed.

Bedside Saddle

May 15, 2008

Tired of stuffing your magazines, remotes, ipods, and other before bed essentials under the bed? Keep these items off the floor and close at hand in our bedside saddle. This soft faux leather saddle fits snuggly between the mattress and the bed frame. Magazines, journals, electronics, and other items can be neatly tucked away inside the saddle’s five pockets.

I don’t know anything about it (perhaps one of you will), but I really like how they’ve used this stand/bench as a nightstand.

Design Public has the most serenely, modern bedding in basic colors that are always in style . . . whites, blues, greys, pinks, tans


Painted Owls

this is a cute idea for a child’s room….painted with chalkboard paint…

Kubo Shelf

April 9, 2008

I just saw this shelf over at apartmenttherapy. I like it as a nightstand but I like the idea of using it in the kitchen for cookbooks and what-not even more.

I also want a new bed, but I just really hate spending money on large purchases. I, however, have no problem spending money on small things. Perhaps this is why I like to think I can build (or get someone to help me build) everything I see…..


I just saw this bed in an apartment shown on apartmenttherapy and immediately started to think how I could make it. Especially since I just found this website that sells hairpin legs ($22 ea), and you can always get a slatted bed frame from Ikea for $50 (queen size) so now I just need to price the wood for the exposed wood sections, and consult with someone on how those hairpin legs actually support the bed because that makes me a little nervous….

Float Bed

March 27, 2008

I’ve found another “floating” bed similiar to the Doze Bed I posted at the middle of the month. The lines on this one aren’t quite as nice but the price is….

I love this Doze Bed, that has the illusion of floating in the air. In actuality it has feet near the front of the bed to help to keep the unit balanced and the back cushions are removable.



Habitual Bedside Table

March 4, 2008

I don’t necessarily like the aesthetics of this but I like the functionality, but I guess it’s just a concept design so it could look better once built.

Flou Bed

March 3, 2008

Under my bed is a wreck. I would love to have this bed and be able to easily store and access everything under there….and this probably wouldn’t accumulate all the dust bunnies….
