Floor space comes at a premium in many homes and nearly all apartments -- that's what makes bunk beds the ultimate space-saving solution. The Dumbo Double Murphy Bed takes it a step further by letting you fold them up.
Designed by Roberto Gil and built from baltic birch plywood, these bunk beds from Casa Kids are both compact and sturdy. When folded up, the cabinet is a mere 30cm deep, and yet they can still bear the weight of two full-sized man-children who might need the extra space for aerobics or something.
The Dumbo Double Murphy Bed is available from Casa Kids for $US3200, with custom mattresses for $US800 more. You'd be hard-pressed to find another way to buy extra room. It's definitely a better bet than, say, stacking two beds and nailing them together. [Casa Kids via Inhabitat]
