Doubling up..


It was a long night last night – after birthday celebrations it was home late to a very sick Charlie with projectile vomiting and his can just imagine the amount of bed linen/antiseptic spray we got through.  Finally we both went to sleep on the bathroom floor – the easiest place to keep clean. So it feels appropriate to look at clever, space saving beds – for which I have to thank the Sunday Times for coming up with these finds – but they’re just too good not to pass on. The bed above is from Noa and Nani – a really good, affordable £129 brucie bargain, chic choice.


They do other designs too, including this very cunning one at £249..451ec4e97a2976662b1911b580ecd052

There’s storage..8ca5a5f87d16ecc56b3b461b5423bb16

with a trundle bed above. Genius.


Or what about a space saving bed for three?  A bunk bed with a simple trundle you can add for a mere £59.


Or just a trundle you can keep out of sight?


I heart this bed.  Disguised as an ottoman it comes up trumps with a padded headboard. From Although a little bit more expensive at £530.


An Ikea classic. At £349?


Or this one at £499 – apparently flips open to make a double. Check out for more information.


I’m liking the smaller size option of a chair-bed.  This ‘ched’ (my word..) is from Willow and Hall at a currently reduced price of £393


I like the chunkiness of this option…but I’m never sure of the design virtue of armrests shaped as wheels….but if it floats your boat it’s from Loaf at £875.


Maybe you will be able to squeeze that extra guest in this Christmas..ho ho!
