Designers regard the pallet bed frame as a cheaper alternative to an actual bed frame. A pallet is normally made up of wood planks and used as a wooden carrier. It’s mostly found wherever there are cargos and basically, you only need to recycle these wooden planks to use for the bed. If you’re tight on the budget and unable to buy actual furniture, or if you have little design knowledge and creative output, the pallet would be convenient to use because you can simply just prop up a mattress over it.
A furniture and home store in Georgia is preparing for the unveiling of the World’s Largest Mattress this coming Saturday. Real Deals on Furniture and Home Décor is set to present a mattress measuring 38 by 80 feet in a Christmas event that will be graced by no less then Santa Claus. Kids have been invited to play and jump on this mattress, which is also pegged to cover more than 3,000 square feet of space.
Dubbed the Huggy Armchair, this whimsical creation features a mattress, in multiple color at that, wrapped around a base that is shaped like a basin or drum. The result is like a wafer cone seater that can actually be broken down into a single bed. It’s a modern and creative solution for small spaces. And it’s quite practical, too.
Those who live in the city may have all the conveniences and perks of living in the hustle and bustle.

Both with a rustic and modern touch, this bed is created by Dave McDonald, a craftsman who specializes in woodwork. Using reclaimed woods from hemlock, walnut and douglas fir, the bed’s design is said to be inspired by the coast of Oregon. The wood undergoes a process of drilling, grounding, sanding and burning, until it is finally coated with a rich finish. It may also be custom made.
You can either view this bed as something that’s adorably quirky but fit for a girl’s room, or as a creepy furniture to sleep in with this huge kitty head by the headboard. But obviously, this bed was designed for someone who is a big fan of the Sanrio character. Which is more likely little girls who will think it would be pretty awesome to have a huge Hello Kitty head in the room.
Want an instant lift in the bedroom? You can easily do this by adding color with the help of accessories or furnishing, such as as this colored foams that has been put together to resemble a couch or a lounge bed.
