On Beds that Look Awkward & Physically Challenging

I adore these low bed frames. I love the look of the sunken mattress and the large solid structure that surrounds them. I'm all for storage and ultra-low platform pieces but in the end, the idea of getting out of bed in the morning isn't one I think should be questionable. Scoot, slide, shift — how far are you willing to go for beauty?

Most beds are a fairly straight forward item. They consist of a frame and often feet and often have a headboard attached. Some modern beds however try to break the typical bed mold and although they're beautiful and stunning to look at — sometimes I can't help but wonder what it would actually be like to get out of bed each morning.

Although my 30-something self is still design-forward in my decor and furniture pieces, I really don't want to give myself a wedgie sliding to the edge of the bed in the morning just so I can stand up. I don't want to dread standing up because my bed is 3 inches off the ground and I don't want to use a step stool to hop up into one.

Pictured above are a few beds that feel like they'd be a small challenge, which one would you say no to? Tell us why in the comments below!
