We say this daybed design by Donald Judd is for inspiration only because one built during his lifetime can fetch over $70,000 at auction these days...

Okay, so we're not going to be buying a Judd original anytime soon... but what about making one inspired-by? We think it could be accomplished with simple woodworking tools and know-how. The beds are made of pine 2x lumber and create a freestanding sleeping niche. The design is simple and definitely inspiring to us. The double-sided version you see above was designed by Judd for his children and is held in The Arena at The Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas.
