Better Than a Murphy Bed? Loft Beds for Grown-Ups
Brooklyn-based woodworker Roberto Gil has been designing space-saving furniture for more than 20 years now. He’s perhaps best known for his stylish children’s beds, sold under the brand Casa Kids. Now he’s offering a loft bed under his line for grown-ups, Casa Collection, inspired by New York City’s first micro-apartment building.
Called Urbano, the loft beds come in queen and king sizes. No pricing information is available on his website yet, but similar systems for kids have starting prices that range from about $3,400 to $5,900, depending on whether you opt for a ladder or stairs to access the sleep space. (The stairs are a separate unit of drawers, so they add about $1,000 to the cost.)
We do wonder a bit about the durability of the loft beds for adults’ … erm, noctural activities. But presumably the children’s furniture is subjected to more than its fair share of vigor, too, so perhaps our concern is misplaced.
