Sleeping Suspended: Hanging Beds

By Handmade Charlotte |

If you’re the type to fall asleep while swinging in the hammock, here’s a collection of hanging beds to spark your imagination. If you’re feeling inspired, we’ve even included a link to free detailed plans for building your own.

Personally, I’d be a bit worried about using any of these–my kids would surely put something like this through rigorous quality testing. Maybe if they were connected to steel beams…

    What happens when the couple on the net decides to use their “bed” for something other than sleep?

    That looks so cool! I wonder if that would get me in trouble with my landlord…

    I noticed a couple of comments about hanging beds moving around too much to be comfortable in. I have built hanging beds for a couple of clients (see photos at ) and have come up with a solution for the movement. Hang the bed up next to the wall (at the head end) and attach (underneath the frame) to the wall with heavy duty “L” brackets. This gives you the look of the hanging bed with the stability you want when you are sleeping.
