Like murphy bed armoires, mezzanine beds are a common solution for small Paris apartments and this month's Cotemaison.fr has a photo gallery of options in a variety of styles. This black and white ensemble is from Espace Loggia.
The mezzanine bed allows you to take advantage of a room's volume, stashing away your sleeping space up above while allowing for a desk or living area below -- which works well in a small bedroom or a studio as illustrated by this mezzanine from Gautier.
