They say that you spend a third of your life in bed, and if that is so, then why not make an investment in a bed you really love? One that is not only comfortable, but beautiful and functional as well. I have long been a fan of upholstered beds, and while I don't own one at the moment, something like one
of these stylish numbers would fit the bill perfectly. Firstly, it looks like a proper piece of furniture, the upholstered surface makes it seem extra plush,  and you certainly wouldn't need a bed skirt. An added plus is that I couldn't bruise my shins on the skirting boards getting in or out. That's more than I can say for my current bed - ouch. Additionally, having a huge hidden storage compartment underneath is a big plus. 
It's so "of the moment" design-wise.
What about you? Do you prefer a bed with soft edges or something more linear and hard?
