If you’ve got little people sharing spaces, it might be time to ditch the standard twin set. There’s a whole crew of creative designers (and a few ingenious moms and dads) with the right frame of mind: They’ve elevated bunk beds to a whole new level of cool. Suspended from ropes, designed to look like things that go vroom, or decorated in vibrant hues, these innovative designs are perfect for sleeping multiples in style.

Out on a Limb

This contemporary space from Optimise Design from isn’t just for the birds. It’s also for kiddos who love to be tucked into a cozy space every night. The built-in bunks come with a special space for each kid to keep their treasures, and the tree-inspired ladder adds total charm.
