The clean lines, fold-away mechanisms and modular components of these contemporary bunk bed designs have us wishing we were kids again.
Launched earlier this year, as part of new kids' furniture brand Dot and Cross's inaugural collection, the 'Mezzanine' bunk bed has a space below the bed that can be configured into a series of different rooms through the addition of modular components such as desks, beds, bookcases and wardrobes.
For design-savvy, sophisticated kids, the frameless 'Tommi e Jerri' bunk beds designed by architect G. Manzoni for Ebra fold neatly away into the wall and come in a choice of over 20 melamine finishes.
Part of Dear Kids' 'Boxer' Collection bedroom furniture series, this bunk bed is accessed via a safe and easy-to-use ladder fitted with big drawers and a container with its own little internal steps. To play with friends or to create a secret world, the lower part of the structure may be fitted with a little 'sitting room' that becomes a study area by adding a desk. Or add a second bed with a solid wood structure or a sofa-bed available with a slatted or an orthopaedic base or painted on both sides.
The modular 'Bunky Beds' were designed by Australian designer Newson for Magis' kids' furniture range, Me Too. Made form rotational-molded polyethylene, the design consists of four components available in graduated hues of orange or blue.
Made by the bed experts at Italian brand Clei, the 'Lollisoft IN' Transformable bunk beds fold completely out of view into the wall and even has extra storage space built-in. Perfect for small spaces, the system features a fold up ladder and pull-out integrated protection guard.
