Hello all, today I would love to introduce you one of my favorite new children’s interior design discoveries – the UPnDOWN Bed !
If you have followed my blog these past few weeks you might have read that I am just in the process of completely redecorating my kids’ shared bedroom… They love each other so much that they absolutely insisted on sleeping in the same room – unfortunately, furnishing and decorating a room for a brother and sister with completely different ages, needs and preferences is not the easiest of tasks (which might in fact be a bit of an understatement ! ) ! 😉
Surprisingly enough, the hardest part so far has not been deciding on a color scheme (as I would have expected) but the hunt for just the right bed… They are at an age now where one of their biggest wishes is a bunk bed and unfortunately, great design bunk beds are hard to come by here in Germany – who knew ? After countless hours spent surfing the world wide web for just the right design, can you imagine my absolute delight when a friend and fellow blogger just happened to show me the most amazing bunk bed ever ?!!
This ingenious and fresh new design by Amsterdam based father of two, architect and furniture designer Thomas Durner is not only absolutely stunning, it’s also the most versatile children’s bed I have ever seen ! Not only can you purchase the bed either as a single or as a bunk bed, you can also mount the beds in several different positions. This is exactly the bunk bed my kids have been dreaming about – a bed, that will invite them to dream of adventures and reenact them the very next day !
I love the UPnDOWN‘s many fun possibilities and the fact that you can easily transform it from a shared bunk bed to two separate loft beds with built-in book shelves that double as a latter… And as if this wasn’t enough, each bed is covered in a cozy, high quality felt and you can customise your bed by choosing from 20 different colors. This really is the coolest bed !!
