10 of The Most Ridiculously Creative Beds

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Considering we spend almost half of our lifetime in bed, it’s a wonder that people don’t get more creative with their sleeping arrangements. That said, in support of the bold few, we’ve decided to highlight a few cases where individuals have gone above and beyond the more mundane amenities to bring you the most ridiculously creative beds around.

  1. The Pumpkin Carriage Bed:
    If you’re making a list of ridiculously creative beds, this overly ornate Pumpkin Carriage (inspired by Cinderella) has to top the list. While this kind of bed surely has a limited shelf life before the young princess outgrows the fairytale phase, she’s likely the bell of the ball while it lasts.

  1. The Playground Bed:
    It’s a bird! it’s a plane! it’s a playground! It’s a … bed? While there probably isn’t much sleeping going on in this household due to the kids playing instead of napping, at least you save on gas for not having to commute to the park.

  1. The Zipper Bed:
    Sleeping bags are cozy and all but there isn’t much room for adjusting your position throughout the night – you’re pretty much resigned to one pose. However, combining the coziness of a sleeping bag but with the spacious sprawling ability of a full-sized bed, this zipper bed is the best of both worlds!

  1. The Round Mattress:
    Speaking of adjusting positions, who says you need to sleep in one configuration? Cue the round bed. While rectangle beds pretty much force you to sleep length-wise, with the round mattress from Rocky Mountain Mattress you can sleep at infinite angles!

  2. The Trampoline Bed:
    If you had an affinity for sleeping on the backyard trampoline as a child or if you fancy a night in a hammock in your later years, this one is for you. Because it’s not always warm enough to campout in your backyard, this bed brings the trampoline/hammock experience indoors, to be enjoyed year-round.

  1. The Rocking Bed:
    Rocking chairs are extremely relaxing and while it’s easy to nod off, sleeping in the upright position is never a recipe for a full night’s sleep. That said, we bring you this most creative rocking bed … the same perks of a rocking chair but with the horizontal sleeping comforts of a bed!

  1. The Modified Hammock Bed:
    As our second tribute to the hammock on this list, we have this modified hammock bed. Again, combining the best of two worlds, this is a solid-state bed that still manages to provide the free-swinging sensation of a backyard hammock or porch swing.

  1. The Fancy Cabin Bunks:
    Everyone has attempted to sleep in cabin bunks at one point (the key word being attempted). Whether it was at camp or Uncle Jim’s mountain cabin, there’s usually little comfort in rustic sleeping quarters – that is, until these plush two-story amenities came along.

  2. The Swan Bed:
    This bed is both creative and beautiful, however, much like Cinderella’s Pumpkin Carriage above, there is a short window of time for when this young lady will appreciate the grand gesture. Of course, after that, good luck moving what looks to be an extremely heavy one-piece fixture!

  3. The Nest Bed:
    For every beautiful swan there is a nest where they lay their head at night – this one just so happens to be a cross between that resting place and the over-sized nest-like Olympic Stadium in Beijing, China. While this is certainly creative, the jury is still out on whether is tasteful or tacky.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this gallery of ridiculously creative beds – one thing is for sure, it either made you extremely jealous of what you don’t have or beyond grateful for the nice, normal bed you call your own.

The World’s Most Extreme Beds

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

When you crawl in bed at night, you are probably just thankful for a comfy, warm place to rest.  However, some people take their sleeping experiences to the next level and really push the boundaries of creativity.  The sleeping spaces featured here go beyond normal and into the realm of extreme beds.

Floating Bed
Architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars’ floating bed looks like a prop from a David Copperfield magic show.  This extreme bed was created in the summer of 2006 after six years of development.  The bed is attached to the ground by four thin cables, which are only there to ensure that the bed stays motionless.  The true magic comes through the use of magnets, which enable the bed to float up to 40cm off the ground and carry up to 900 kilograms in weight.

High Fidelity Canopy
The Hi-Can High Fidelity Canopy bed is the perfect sleep space for the tech geek in your life.  Designed by Italian Edoardo Carlino, the Hi-Can is equipped with a state of the art sound system, a home theatre screen that slides down from its home within the bed frame, a built in computer, a pressure-balanced mechanical bedding system, remote controlled blinds, an iPod interface and much more.

Lomme Bed
Looking like it came straight from The Jetsons, the Lomme is a bed and a piece of art rolled into one.  The bed was created to provide you with the most restful and rejuvenating night of sleep possible.  The bed features a light therapy system that mimics the setting sun to help you fall asleep and it wakes you the next day with a rising sun simulation.  The Lomme Bed’s other features include color therapy, an integrated iPod dock and an integrated massage system.

Safe-T Bed

If you want to keep your riches close by while you sleep, the Safe-T Bed is the sleep system for you.  Hollandia International is known for creative sleep solutions and when a customer inquired about integrating a gun safe into his bed, the company responded with the Safe-T Bed.  The bed features an integrated safe to store your self-defense weapon of choice, precious jewels or wads of cash – all nuzzled securely under your resting head.

Private Cloud

Think reclining rocking chair meets baby swing and you have the Private Cloud bed.  Created by German designer Manuel Kloker, the bed actually rocks.  Many babies find comfort in a swing and so the idea behind the bed is that adults, too, find comfort in the smooth rocking motion.  The bed also includes a canopy in your choice of fabric for added tranquility.

Stop wasting your time and get a new mattress

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Stop wasting your time, get a new mattress

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of your life. The average person sleeps about one-third of his/her entire life. The recommended length of sleep per day is 8 hours, or 1/3 of every day. Too many people don’t get the sleep they need. This drastically affects every aspect of one’s life.

Dr. Bert Jacobson is a Professor at Oklahoma State University. He says, “Sleep deprivation impacts us physically, which can negatively affect our coordination, agility, mood, and energy. For the ‘average’ person, out research shows that better sleep quality can be as simple as a new mattress.”

Oklahoma State University recently conducted an interesting sleep study. They found that a new mattress provides sleepers with significant improvements when compared to sleeping on a mattress that was five years old or older. These improvements include:

-70.8 percent increase in sleep comfort
-62.0 percent increase in sleep quality
-55.3 percent decrease in back pain
-50.7 percent decrease in spine stiffness

A new mattress really can make the difference between a good night’s sleep and a terrible one. Don’t let your body take the brunt of sleep deprivation any longer. New mattresses are inexpensive and definitely worth the investment. Latex foam mattresses are the most popular type of mattress. Memory foam mattresses come in second with air mattresses and waterbeds tying for fourth place. Innerspring mattresses aren’t as popular when it comes to comfort but are still widely available because they are so inexpensive.

What will it take for you to finally invest in a new mattress?

4 Reasons Why You May Need a New Mattress

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Why You May Need a New Mattress

The average person spends 3,000 hours a year asleep. That means that you spend over 17.5 weeks a year in your bed. No wonder you should be replacing your mattress often. The Better Sleep Council recommends that you replace your mattress every 5-7 years. Higher quality memory foam and latex mattresses can last up to 20 years. But, more than likely, it is time to replace your mattress. Here is why you may desperately need a new mattress…

1. Life. How long have you been sleeping on your current mattress? Have you had it since you were a teenager? Did you get your mattress when you got married (over 15 years ago)? If so, it is time to replace it. Your current mattress may have a 15, 20, or 30 year warranty, but that doesn’t mean that is how long the mattress will last. Older mattresses can heavily affect the quality of sleep you get.

2. Age. This time, we aren’t talking about the age of your mattress. We are talking about how old you are. As you get older, your body’s sleeping needs change. Although you might have preferred a softer mattress ten years ago, your body might need a firmer one now. In order to relieve any sleeping discomfort, you will need to replace your mattress and assess your body’s needs every few years. A good indicator to see if you have different sleeping needs than you did a while ago is…do you wake up with your sheets all skiwampus? If so, it probably means that you are tossing and turning more. This means that your body is ready for a mattress change.

3. Is it sagging? If your mattress is sagging in the middle, or anywhere for that matter, it is time to get rid of it. Take a closer look and see if any side is higher than another. If it is, kiss it goodbye.

4. Noises and Movements. If you roll around on your bed or make the slightest movement, does your bed creak? Does it sway at all? These may be indicators that the wooden box spring is losing its support system. If the box spring breaks down before the top mattress, don’t hesitate to replace it first.

It doesn’t take a lot of observation to tell if you need a new mattress. In order to get a good night’s sleep, you need to replace your mattress every few years. Believe me, your body will appreciate the change.

10 Reasons the Tri-Fold Memory Foam Folding Bed Dominates your Air Mattress

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Ever slept over at a friends house, stayed with a relative, or just been forced to sleep on a “blow up mattress”? If so, you know the perils of sleeping on one of these “comfortable” mattresses. And, you have likely awoken to all manner of stiffness, cramping, or possible injury.

To avoid these terrible fates, a restful and comfortable night’s sleep on a Tri-Fold Memory Foam Folding Bed is in order. Here are 10 reasons you want to go with the cloud-softness and comfort of the Tri-Fold Memory Foam Folding Bed over the unreliably awkward and possibly dangerous air mattress.

Tri-Fold Memory Foam Folding Bed

  1. Your air mattress may pop. Air mattresses are unreliable, and easily punctured by many different household objects. If this happens while you’re sleeping on the mattress, you won’t soon forget or forgive the incident.
  2. You can’t get comfortable on an air mattress. Because they are filled with air. Air mattresses move based on your body and anyone you’re sleeping next to. This means if your partner rolls over, you may roll off. Tossing and turning can become a dangerous ordeal.
  3. You don’t get the necessary support your body needs. Because you’re sleeping on an uneven bed of air. The air doesn’t adjust for back support, neck support, or any special needs you may have.
  4. Air mattresses need air pumps. Or strong lungs. One of those options costs money and can break, the other can lead to unconsciousness. Either way, you’re paying too high a price to get a poor nights sleep.
  5. Memory Foam Mattresses provide support. You don’t need to worry about bumping your partner off the bed with a wrong move, each of you will get a sound night’s sleep on your folding beds.
  6. Memory Foam is temperature sensitive. At higher temperatures (your body heat temperature) memory foam softens as it is supporting you.
  7. Guests Love Tri-Fold Memory Foam Mattresses. If you pull out the air pump and start blowing up the mattress for your guests, their smiles will be fake. Because they know they’re in for a poor nights sleep. But if you reach in the closet and come out with Tri-fold memory foam mattresses, their smiles will be as genuine as their sleep.
  8. Memory Foam Folding Beds are easy to transport. Going camping? Why spend 40 minutes blowing up your air mattress and another hour letting your lungs recover? With the memory foam folding bed you simply remove the mattress from the car, and unfold it. Easy, right?
  9. Memory Foam Folding Beds last longer. You go through a new air mattress every year, you buy one memory foam folding mattress and it lasts for at least 10 years, just under warranty.
  10. You can receive free shipping on your Tri-Fold Memory Foam Mattress. So what are you waiting for??!? Buy a brand new portable mattress that provides comfort, support, and is vastly superior to your air mattress.

Customer Testimonial: So Impressed He Bought Immediately

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

We received the testimonial (below) from a recent customer of ours located in Alabama. I thought it was worth posting to the blog. Michael purchased a Memory Foam Mattress RMMSleep 7400.

RockyMountainMattress.com

I had the chance to personally check out a mattress sold by Rocky Mountain Mattress Company yesterday and was so impressed with it that I bought a King Size this morning.

Rocky Mountain’s mattress’s memory foam technology is comparable to Tempurpedic’s, but there is a huge difference in cost. (Oh say about $1000). If you are in the market for some new sleep gear (I mean, its only 1/3 of your life!) check them out!

Broyhill Headboard and Frame

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

I recently purchased a new headboard/footboard for my bed from Broyhill. What I came to find out through many hours of frustration is that with this specific item in California King the headboard and footboard does not fit their frame for the cal-king. After speaking to multiple customer service reps and regional sales reps, I found out that they didn’t even know this is a problem with their product. I was able to make it work by buying a generic bolt on frame and just bolting that directly to the headboard and returning the footboard. The reason I’m sharing this experience is because this single experience with their customer support has lead me away from Broyhill for life. I highly doubt I will ever buy anything from them again.

Here is my list of things customer service reps can do to better serve their customers:

1. Answer your phone when it rings or at least return voice mails.
2. Don’t make any promises unless you will keep them.
3. Listen to the customer and answer their questions.
4. Deal with complaints instead of passing the buck.
5. Be helpful even if their is no immediate profit in it for you.
6. Take the extra step.
7. Follow up, Follow up, Follow up

If the Broyhill reps would have followed these 7 simple steps I’m sure I would have had a much improved experience in dealing with them.

Adjustable Air Mattress…the answer for couples

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with family and friends and during this get together one of the topics we discussed it how there are so many options out there for sleep systems. You have so many options that buying a mattress has almost become as difficult as buying a car. Of course, since I’m employed by Rocky Mountain Mattress, I had a lot of questions that came flying my way and I did my best to answer them. Many questions related to what types of mattresses exist and how to find a mattress that is the right firmness for each person that will be sleeping in the bed.

If you’re anything like me, I like a bed that is completely different than what my wife prefers. She prefers a softer bed than I and I sink further into softer beds than her because I’m heavier than her which leads to a soar back the next day. A few family members are in the process now of looking for a new bed and one has a wedding that is not too far off and is considering upgrading to a larger bed for added comfort when sleeping with a spouse. There are many things to consider when purchasing a mattress for a couple so here is my list of things to consider:

First of all consider size. Most couples make the mistake of buying a mattress that ends up being too small. You can spend years regretting buying a full or queen when you should have gone for the king. Don’t make this mistake!

adjustable air mattresses are the answer for couples

Second thing on the list is firmness. For many couples the firmness level of their mattress is a sticky point in their marriage. One person sleeps well every night while the other ends up on the couch, floor, or elsewhere just to try and get a good nights sleep.

The third aspect is bedroom size. This aspect correlates directly with my first point. I always recommend the largest bed you can handle, but if your room won’t allow it then you will have to consider other options.

The last thing on my list is price. While you will pay more for a larger mattress keep in mind that over 10 or 20 years that extra cost becomes very little each year and you get so much more room for that little extra. Trust me it will make the difference.

For these reasons, I often recommend an adjustable air mattress like the MemSleep 7400. An adjustable air mattress allows both people sleeping in the bed to adjust their side to the comfort level they prefer allowing them to have a more restful nights sleep. Most air mattresses are made at a very high quality standard and have warranties that extend to at least 10 years. This is the recommendation I just made to my many family members and I sleep in one myself. My wife and I just love it.

Kinked Neck…terrible night

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

This morning I woke up with a kinked neck ouch! Throw away the batteries for my alarm clock because I can’t get to sleep! I hate going through my day without being able to give the bobble head hello. You know; where you see someone you think you know, or someone you know but don’t really want to talk to you give them the quick head move to say hi. Well I can’t do that today as the kink in my neck is resting just below and behind my left ear. Here’s how my kink became.

First of all I couldn’t fall asleep. I just got a new bed a few months ago it’s an air bed with latex as the topper (click here to see my bed). It wasn’t the bed that was causing the problem, but my mind. I couldn’t shut it off. All these thoughts were running through my head and the song Good Night Sweetheart was on replay mode for a few hours. After falling asleep I’m sure I wrestled with an invisible bear or something because I woke up all twisted around and my memory foam pillow was on the floor. Not only do I love my brand new bed, but I love my pillow as well.

Let’s hope I sleep better tonight!

Hypoallergenic Mattresses and Mattress Covers

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

As I have spent time on the internet browsing topics that relate to bedding there is one that seems to be of high popularity right now; hypoallergenic mattress covers and mattresses. I thought I should take some time to throw my hat in the ring on this topic as to give sense to why this topic might have grown so much in interest lately and also touch on what product I really think is a great option in the area.

We have all heard the claims that the air in our homes is twice as dirty as the air outside. Many people find that hard to believe myself included. However, with all the buzz that has been created on this topic by successful marketers there has been an increase in products surrounding the clean air industry. Whether you believe the studies or not, that fact is that there are many things in the air that can affect us negatively including: allergens and house dust mites.

Most people are unfamiliar with what a house dust mite is, so let me explain. Dust mites come from the same arachnid family as the spider. They are so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye and are generally oval in shape and cream in color. They have eight legs with sticky pads on the end of their legs allowing them to burrow into fabric fibers and carpets. The bedroom is a perfect haven for house dust mites and they love making homes in your pillows, mattresses, blankets, bed springs, and comforters. In fact, the average bed had two million of these creatures living in it. They affect us by consuming our dead skin cells and then dropping waste pellets containing allergens and debris. The pellets are small enough to be breathed through our mouth and nose while sleeping. Breathing these pellets causes many to experience increased allergies and the cycle repeats itself every night while sleeping in our mite ridden beds.

To cure this problem many bedding manufacturers have created hypoallergenic bedding and mattress covers for standard mattresses, memory foam mattresses, latex mattresses, and air bed mattresses. The product we feature on our website with many of our beds is Amicor Pure.

amicor pure hypoallergenic mattress cover and mattresses

Amicor Pure produces the amicor mattress covers featuring amicor fibers. The amicor fibers are made using late injection technology. This means that the effective ingredients are dispersed inside the fiber and not a fragile surface finish. The fiber itself creates a slow diffusion so that just enough of the active ingredient arrives at the surface. The fiber is self-replenishing and is durable, throughout washing and for the life of your mattress. Amicor Pure has been designed to keep beds and bedding fresh, soft and pure. You can now sleep peacefully knowing that with Amicor Pure you have the purest quality available a quality that can actually improve your health. Amicor Pure provides a sense of fresh air for the lifetime of your mattress and works continuously to prevent indoor allergens, providing a healthier sleep environment. The Amicor Pure healthy sleep system is a truly modern luxury. In fact, it could provide the healthiest nights sleep you will ever have.
