The Perfect Sleep

Over at Scribbit, she was giving some reviews and finds for the week.

What I liked was the bed she had fallen in love with.
Now I thought a bed was a bed, and that it stood on 4 legs but when you go check out these beds you will see that 4 legs are now optional.

Here are some pictures to get you started before you pop on over to see the other weird and wonderful delights on offer.

This bed above is actually a New Zealand designer with a company called Okooko. The New York Times did a piece on him and here is what they said:

For Setting Sail to the Land of NodOkooko, a 3-month-old eco-friendly mattress and bedroom-furniture company based in New Zealand, recently opened its first retail store in the United States, in Philadelphia. (There are two other stores, in New Zealand and Hong Kong; a fourth is expected to open in New York this spring.) The company — which takes its name from the Maori word for “to cradle in arms”— sells mattresses ($2,500 to $3,000) made of natural latex, bamboo and wool, and beds ($2,200 to $5,500) made of wood from sustainable forests managed by the New Zealand government. It also sells high-design beds like Float ($25,000, including the mattress), above, by David Trubridge, a New Zealand designer. And for every bedroom suite sold, Okooko promises to plant a native tree in New Zealand. Okooko, 205 Arch Street, Philadelphia, (215) 667-8240 or okooko.com. ANNIE BLOCK

Makes you wonder how comfortable and dreamy these bed can be. I think I need to totally rethink the house to fit beds like this in!

Wow! Those are pretty crazy looking beds. I am not sure that I would enjoy them myself.
