27 Weird and Creative Beds

We spend a lot of our time sleeping, so it’s no surprise that we need to choose the right best. In this article we’ll be looking at some weird and creative beds. Picking an ordinary looking bed is what most of us do, but did you know that beds are being redesigning by some cool industrial designers? We’ve taken a look at some surreal and crazy must see bed designs you might consider sleeping on.

A University of California, San Diego psychiatry study of more than one million adults found that people who live the longest self-report sleeping for six to seven hours each night. Another study of sleep duration and mortality risk in women showed similar results. Other studies show that “sleeping more than 7 to 8 hours per day has been consistently associated with increased mortality,” though this study suggests the cause is probably other factors such as depression and socioeconomic status, which would correlate statistically. It has been suggested that the correlation between lower sleep hours and reduced morbidity only occurs with those who wake naturally, rather than those who use an alarm.

Some of these beds look pretty comfy, while others look completely outrageous. Ultimately these beds are not the norm but showcase some interesting concepts. Which one would you like to own?
