I’ve been told that your bed is your most important piece of furniture. When I was younger I didn’t quite get why, but now that I’m older with a lot more aches and pains, I really understand. When I was 11 years old, my parents gave me a water bed. I was so excited! They were a big deal at the time, and I was so excited to get one. Ten years later when I finally replaced it, I made the mistake of going from the water bed to a very firm mattress…they may be great for the posture, but they are not comfortable at all. When my husband I got married, we looked at regular beds and platform beds, and cheap beds and expensive beds…we eventually decided on an affordable platform bed with a high end king size mattress. It is heaven to sleep on!

Check out these odd bed choices…

Person Shaped Bed

I’m pretty sure this isn’t a real bed. If it is, it must be in a museum somewhere because it certainly isn’t practical. You would have to order  your bed to fit, and never move in your sleep! It would make an interesting bed for the guest room, if you didn’t want to have any guests!

Hamburger Bed

I think this one looks really comfortable! It would be so cute in a kids’ room, and I bet my teenagers would love it.

Rope Bed

I don’t know about this one. I really hope that someone skilled at knot tying put that together. The concept is cool but I just couldn’t trust it myself.

Tree Bed

I think this is beautiful and I would definitely be okay with it in my house. I can just picture a beautiful garden themed guest room.

Box Bed

You wouldn’t have to worry about falling out of bed with this one, except when you need to use the washroom in the middle of the night and miss the stairs.

Nest Bed

This is so cute! It’s another one that would be cute in a kids’ room, as long as he/she is old enough to dig out of the pillows.

Light Bed

This is a creative way to light up the bedroom, albeit a little strange.

Teen Media Bed

Other than the odd shape that I can’t imagine sleeping on, this bed looks really cool. I am sure any one of my kids would love to have it. Of course, they wouldn’t sleep if they had it.

Car Bed

This isn’t your normal car bed like the Little Tykes coupe bed my son had when he was little. This is a car bed for big kids! I’m guessing it’s in a theme hotel somewhere.

Skull Bed

This is really more of a chair than a bed, in my opinion. I wouldn’t sleep in it, but it would be an interesting conversation piece!

Do you have an interesting bed?
