You may have read it once or twice—the bed is one of the most important pieces at home that you need to invest in. Aside from going for the usual bed frame and mattress combo, you may want to take it to the next level by opting for creative and interesting beds. Looking for ideas? Here are unique finds that you'll surely love, too: 

 1. Hamburger Bed

Designed by Kayla Kromer, the Hamburger bed measures eight inches in diameter and three inches tall. It features a round mattress from the 70s, with beddings that resemble the patty, the cheese, and the lettuce. Notice the top burger bun? It serves as the duvet cover! Truth be told, we'd always rush home just to sleep on this delicious piece.

2. Book Bed

Book lovers, rejoice! The ‘fold-up’ bed made by Japanese innovator Yusuke Suzuki can make your fairy tale dreams come true! It's a dual-purpose must-have that's best for small spaces—when opened, it can be used as a duvet with pillows, but when closed, it can serve as a playmat.

3. Geometric Bed

Fancy a conversation starter piece? Designed by  Jacob+Macfarlane architects, this unusual and futuristic creation can also be considered as a work of art.

4. Itbed

The itbed is made from a 4mm thick cardboard that is folded like an accordion. Do you travel often? This can be your sleeping buddy! The itbed can be collapsed into a portable bundle—making it easier to pack and handle.

5. Birdnest Bed

Designed by Oge Group, this bed may look extra quirky but it promises a lot! Get style, comfort, and relaxation from this extremely comfortable must-have as it can make you feel like you're in a faraway vacation spot while letting you enjoy a good night's sleep.

6. Fetal Position Bed

It's safe to say that this piece takes the cake as the strangest bed on this list. If you love sleeping in a fetal position, you may want to have this in your bedroom. Be careful though, with a mattress like this, you don't want to be tossing and turning all night.

7. Beam Bed


Taking inspiration from the sun, this bed is designed  by Lago. What makes this piece special? It generates light from beneath the center of the bed and projects it like a sunburst with the use of lacquered boards—illuminating the room.


8. Vertical Bed

A mesmerizing work of art, this bed designed by Ernesto Neto can make you feel sleepy in instant. Though it's not meant for sleeping, it evokes a feeling that sleeping while standing can actually be a comfortable experience.
