Beds: they’re just places to sleep, right? Wrong! Nowadays beds can not only provide an attractive focal point to the interior design of any bedroom, they can also be infinitely practical. Here are some of our favourites:
The Swing Bed
Beds? Good. Swings? Even better. This beautiful and quirky hanging bed would be the perfect and fun addition for any children’s bedroom (although perhaps for older kids only, to avoid accidents).
The Teepee Bed
We can’t get enough of this Wild West Teepee Bed from Mode. So much fun for kids while impeccably stylish at the same time; win win!
