Crawling into bed at night is often considered the best part of the day. Especially if one has a good bed set up with a high-quality mattress and comfortable sheets — after a long day, bed time is truly a treat.
Most people keep it simple. Beds consist of a bed frame, box spring and mattress. Others, however, have taken the concept of a bed to a whole new level and have come up with some weird and unusual ways to redefine what a bed could be.
Here’s a list of the 10 most weird and unusual beds out there.
1. Vertical Bed
For those that dislike being horizontal, the vertical bed is here for you. The vertical bed is essentially a giant marshmallow pillow with an opening in the middle. This weird bed lets you step in to dreamy softness while it supports you to stand up to catch your zzz’s.
2. Private Cloud — Rocking Bed
Remember when you were a baby and your mom would rock you to sleep every night? How warm and cozy and safe you felt? Now you can get the same feeling with the adult sized Private Cloud. Built like a large horizontal rocking chair, the rocking bed will send you back to a time in your life when you didn’t have a worry in the world.
3. Giant Bird’s Nest
Sometimes you just feel like a bird. Or, at least, you’d like to. Now you can, with this weird and unusual bed.

The unique concept was designed for the Green Garden Exhibition, part of the opening event of O*GE Gallery, in April 2008.
4. “Le Beanock” — Hammock Bed
