If you are living in a small home, the retractable bed might be a great solution for you in order to maximize available space. This idea belongs to american designer Funn Roberts who envisioned the retractable bed for actor Vincent Kartheiser of “Mad Men” TV fame. Funn designed and built the actor’s home from Hollywood using a range of reclaimed materials. Lots of furniture kills the general appearance of a small place and makes it look squeezed but not if you find smart solutions to integrate in it. The bed has a wooden headboard and a simple black frame and there is a lighting fixture hiding under it. This means that when the bed is lifted up, a suspended lamp lights the room. A red curtain makes a separation between spaces and it’s creating a romantic atmosphere in the same time. We loved how Fun did the design of the space and we are curious to see his future projects. But if you’re not into this retractable bed, then choose your favourite from this list of beds. Photo courtesy: dwell.
