Crafting Private Sleeping Quarters in a Loft: The Bed Cube One of the challenges of living in a loft or other space with an open floor plan is creating a private bedroom space. This rotating bedroom cube could be just the solution… This colorful cube is basically a bedroom on wheels. Spin it around one way and there's only a small door facing the room. Spin it around the other way and the three-sided cube is wide open. Think of it as a canopy bed meets cocoon meet movable room. The best part is that you can get a pdf of the plans to build the cube bed over on Du Cote de Chez Vous. The drawback? The instructions are in French.

Now if only I had the amazing loft to put it in... posted by dearmisha on November 21st 2011 at 7:07pm view dearmisha's profile I love the color! This is such a great idea but I agree....if only I had an amazing loft to have this in :p posted by jomo132 on November 21st 2011 at 7:15pm view jomo132's profile Jomo, as it is the cube is pretty much the size of my bedroom. posted by dearmisha on November 21st 2011 at 7:43pm view dearmisha's profile just no! posted by bdosgal on November 21st 2011 at 7:48pm view bdosgal's profile It reminds me of the ducal bedchamber at the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino -- less ornate, but the same idea. Everything old is new again, c. 1500! posted by eiw on November 21st 2011 at 7:53pm view eiw's profile Oh my gives new meaning to the term box spring! Oh I'm a naughty noodle. If I had one of these in my flat I would have a place to stow my crumpets! posted by WallFlowerPower on November 21st 2011 at 8:22pm view WallFlowerPower's profile Ummmmmm, i just dont know, i guess its okay for hiding the bed, but then u just have a big red square blocking half of the living room posted by dmv lady on November 21st 2011 at 8:24pm view dmv lady's profile Now I just need to learn French. posted by kkyle on November 21st 2011 at 8:25pm view kkyle's profile I LOVE IT posted by suzin on November 21st 2011 at 8:36pm view suzin's profile thinking out of the box (pun intended)! Love it! posted by Nef4tt on November 21st 2011 at 8:40pm view Nef4tt's profile Ventilation? Windows? posted by Taureg on November 21st 2011 at 8:52pm view Taureg's profile love it. now I just have to learn french. posted by mitcheaven on November 21st 2011 at 8:54pm view mitcheaven's profile It looks great. Open plan living, sleeping in a box. I guess the open side deals with claustrophobia issues. posted by Thorneyvilla on November 21st 2011 at 11:15pm view Thorneyvilla's profile It reminds me of sleeping in a tent indoors for fun. I'd consider it if I lived in a loft. posted by Miami's Elaine on November 22nd 2011 at 9:34am view Miami's Elaine's profile Great place to store the boytoy. posted by cremedela on November 22nd 2011 at 12:01pm view cremedela's profile i wonder if this would work in a studio. i like the idea of being able to move it around a bit.. shift when company is over. posted by DC Mandy on November 22nd 2011 at 1:48pm view DC Mandy's profile About it being able to be moved around a bit, maybe the wheels should have brakes... posted by Miami's Elaine on November 22nd 2011 at 6:19pm view Miami's Elaine's profile Love it! Though I would do a matching color to the walls so it would blend in rather than stand out. @Miami's Elaine: those heavy duty casters have brakes. posted by whereisMrDarcy on November 23rd 2011 at 12:12pm view whereisMrDarcy's profile @whereisMrDarcy, Thanks, good to know. I like the red since it might look magical and romantic given enough space, candle light nearby, and shadows. Any way, clever concept. posted by Miami's Elaine on November 23rd 2011 at 12:49pm view Miami's Elaine's profile wow. posted by two-storied house on November 23rd 2011 at 3:08pm view two-storied house's profile Cool but I wonder why they didn't just use a curtain to hide the bed. posted by House Voyeur on November 23rd 2011 at 7:13pm view House Voyeur's profile Please sign in or register to comment.

Do you know where to purchase this or better yet how it can be a DIY project??
There is a link to the original source in the first paragraph, with a schematic (.pdf) but it looks like it is in French only.
Thanks so much. I was able to translate the page but not the pdf. However, what I could see from the pictures I am now wondering if it can just be purchased. LOL
bed loft idea
Bed nook and a door to the closet which holds a ladder to a reading space with the "balcony" window above the bed to look out.

Someday when I have a little Studio Apt in Boston...I would love to do something like this :)
The Lollipop Bunk Bed System...love it for a child's or guest room...just like on a ship!
Love the use of space. This would be perfect for a cabin when you would like to try and create some privacy in a small space. malaria protection made cute and charming.

Practical space saver for a studio apt
Lovely bed frame. Similar to the DIY Church Pew headboard (under "Crafty") but without the religious conflict.
whoa. I think this could be made...thus giving me a tree bed that doesn't cost six kabillion dollars. or my soul.
