Although taken for granted today, beds were very rare and expensive assets in the past. In medieval times, the most common resting place was a pile of hay and perhaps a sheet. From the 13th century until recent history, more luxurious beds were made, but unfortunately, were only available to the noble and wealthy. These beds consisted of a wooden bed frame and a possibly lumpy mattress, which was supported by ropes fastened and tightened to the frame. Hardly affordable, these expensive pieces of furniture were topped with the best pillows, sheets, blankets and quilts, while being surrounded by exquisite canopies or curtains.
Many of these elegant space saving beds come with single or double sided drawers or cabinets, skilfully designed to ensure that they mount perfectly on the wall or in a closet and remain secure until they are lowered down to the floor. In this way, the space they take up is not lost as storage space, but is integrated into the structure of the bed. This is particularly of benefit for children’s rooms, since if they have a playroom doubling as a bedroom, the bedding and clothes are best stored within the bed, leaving their own furniture for their toys.
