Caitlen's email landed in our inbox, perfect for kicking off February's theme of bedroom and sleep: Maybe this is out of the realm of the "nursery", as my son is going to turn 3 this summer. However, I'd love it if you could ask your readers about tent beds. I've been looking into something like this (pic above) because I know that when I was young I would have thought this was the absolute best bed in the world. I'd love to know if any readers have any experience buying and/or using tent or loft beds. Any manufacturer suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Dear Caitlen: What little boy or girl wouldn't enjoy a bed like that? But we agree that before purchasing such a large piece of furniture, recommendations are helpful. We suggest checking out Flexa, a company based in Denmark with a factory in Suffolk, Virginia. They have a wide range of lofted beds in varying heights with a ton accessories to customize the look you want. Flexa practices sustainable forestry and all of their products are made from solid Nordic pine. While they don't have any retail stores in New Jersey, they will be opening a store in the DC in a few days - watch for an upcoming Ohdeedoh post! So, Ohdeedoh Readers, give Caitlen your recommendations and reviews (especially of any local stores in New Jersey) in the comments section below.
