Considering how many of us live in small spaces, good storage beds are surprisingly hard to find. I’ve been searching for one myself, and here are a few of the better options I’ve dug up. I have to say, when it comes to price and design, Ikea wins hands down. Unfortunately, they only offer modern styles. Above, a more traditional option from West Elm, the Pivot Storage Frame in stone (full only) $1199.
The Malm High Bed frame with 4 drawers, queen $439. My main gripe about this option is that you can’t swap out the headboard for something more interesting.
PB Teen has a ton of options, though some of them have a huge footprint, which kinda defeats the purpose in my opinion. Above, the Oxford Captain’s Bed, $1999 for the queen base + headboard. Also available in medium brown wood.
This is Ikea’s take on the pivot frame. My main issue with this option is the recommendation that it only be used with an Ikea mattress. I think it would be fine with a not-too-heavy regular mattress, but I worry about risking it. $499 for the queen.
Finally, my favorite of the more traditional options, the Bowery Storage Bed from Crate and Barrel. $2399 for the queen.
