We spend about 8 hours/day, 56 hours/week, 240 hours/month and 2,920 hours/year doing it…that’s right…SLEEPING. In other words, we spend one third of our lives doing nothing, and if you live for 90 years, 30 years would be spent in this mysterious state.
So, the next time you buy a new bed, keep in mind that you will spend a huge amount of your life just lying on this piece of furniture.
1. Book Bed
To resolve the issues of lack of space faced by a lot of urban-dwelling Japanese families, photographer and innovater, Yusuke Suzuki, created a ‘fold-up’ bed in the shape of a book. When the book is opened at night, it’s pages serve as a duvet and pillows and it comes with large cut out shapes and illustrations. During the day it can be folded up and used as a playmat.(Designer: Yusuke Suzuki) (link)

4. Hamburger Bed
Kayla bought a round mattress from the 70′s and made everything else herself…(with the exception of pickle chip pillows which she received from a wonderful friend). The bed is 8′ in diameter and stands about 3′ tall. In Kayla’s opinion it was the most comfortable bed she had ever owned… ever! (Designer: Kayla Kromer)
