Dealing with a closet-sized bedroom or guest room? Optimizing the space for storage and sleep makes the familiar coziness of the tiny NYC bedroom a lot less frustrating, and this compact bed-storage combination from French design company Parisot is a cool solution.
Shelves on the side store books and knicknacks, but the real storage solution is within the bed’s frame. Lift the mattress to reveal drawers and shelves big enough for seasonal wardrobe items, linens, boxes and anything else you’d like to store out of the way but still have access to in the room.
The standard bunk bed with storage underneath may be a little too hard-core for the average adult who may not want to climb a ladder to head for bed. This version (though it’s meant for a teen’s room, it works for anyone who can use a smaller bed) puts the bed at a reasonable elevated height, even providing a step up built into the unit’s shelving.
The company, founded in 1936 by Ecole Boulle graduate Jacques Parisot, designs and manufactures flat-pack furniture for every part of your home that is based on wooden particle boards with very low solvent emissions. See more at Parisot.
