Cool Kids Beds

Few things are sweeter than memories of nights spent away from home at summer camp, or at friends’ houses where we got to sleep in the extra bunk.  There was a sense of adventure inherent to falling asleep so high off the floor, drifting off in the midst of a conversation with a friend we could hear but not see.

The top bunk was always the preferable of the two, even though it required a bit of dexterity to navigate one’s way in and out of it in the dark for a middle-of-the-night glass of water or trip to the bathroom.

And bunk beds still stand strong today, carrying on with the sleepover tradition in various styles — some classic, some whimsical, with one or two over-the-top accessories (see: sliding board) we would’ve flipped over back when we were small enough to fit.

With kids’ beds like these, “lights out” is actually something to look forward to.

The Bunky by Marc Newson for Magis

Bunk beds are pretty common for kids’ rooms so today we’re going to show you a modern new approach called Bunky. The Bunky bunk bed, conceived by designer Marc Newson for Magis, an Italian furniture company, uses just four different pieces that can be easily stacked one on top of each other.

You could move this bunk bed around the room to keep your kid happy, especially if he or she is waiting for one of his or her best friends for a sleepover. The Bunky is a modular design that will also let you use each of the two available beds as single beds, and the four pieces part of the Bunky are all built from rotational-moulded polyethylene.

The surface presents no sharp edges, it’s easy to clean and each bed comes with perforations under the mattress that let the air flow for good ventilation.
