As evidenced by Maxwell's Year in Bed, shopping for beds can be quite a task. But here's an option for those looking beyond the grounded, rectangular version: the floating bed.
A round bed that comes in three sizes, the Floating Bed can be hung from the ceiling or from a stand, indoors or out. Though intriguing as a design element, John Huff created the Floating Bed not for looks, but to maximize the benefits of ideal omni-pendulum, or floating, motion. From syncing brainwaves to preventing varicose veins, the company points to several scientific studies that claim better health and sleep are found from a gentle rocking.
Though clearly not a fit for everyone and every space, the Floating Bed would make an amazing statement piece for a sleeping porch, spacious master bedroom, meditation room, or playroom for the kids.
