Rise and shine, sleep fans! If you (like us) relish a sound night sleep (for yourselves and your mini me’s) this list is just for you! Its time to reveal our Top 10 Kids Bed Designers of All Time. But before we do, here’s the wherefore and the why:
Because each designer has their very own collection of children’s beds (providing plenty of choice outside this top 10), we thought we’d compile a list that focuses on the designers as well as their products – its a great way to give these fabulous designers a shout out and at the same time provide our customers with the info they need (and the thumbs up) to make one of the most important product purchases of the year! Using various sales metrics, customer reviews and our very own factory tours we’ve piled together our favourites – our favourites ever, in fact – to show you what makes the most enviable designers so special. Right then, let the list begin…
10. Julian Bowen
When it comes to kid’s beds laced with imagination and fun, Julian Bowen remains king of the quirky bedroom furniture castle. They run with their ideas to the nth degree: just look at this Bunk Bed based on a London Bus, with its storybook paint scheme, nameplate and awesome series of windows. Those lucky girls & boys just can’t get enough of this range, and the bus bed is our hottest ticket to the Land of Nod. Diversity is endemic to Julian Bowen’s approach – if they can inspire with shapes and colours, there’s no telling what your kid might try to accomplish. Complete with personalised name plate, this designer thinks of everything.

9. Fun Furniture
Road trips are a joy, and our next designer hits that fun factor effortlessly with their standout Camper Van Bed. Infused with the strength of amazing concepts, Fun Furniture is the big daddy of custom made novelty beds, which really can turn your child’s bedroom into a wonder emporium for the imagination. A sliding door whispers goodnight to your little angel, whilst you can emblazon a 3D logo on the van itself for a totally unique finishing touch.

8. Kids Avenue
An artistic feel has given Kids Avenue pride of place for many Cuckooland customers. It’s not a mystery as to why – their Parisot Bibop Bunk, for example, has an up-market sheen and unobtrusive guard rail to help your little one climb to their pillow in style. Storage shelves can switch from a red to blue colour scheme and back again, accentuating the fine acacia wood. Disclosed beneath is a trundle drawer, holding the toys and random additions of a bedroom that embraces the 21st century. Or it can be adapted to a trundle bed, offering up sleep solutions for those all important sleepovers.

7. Rafa Kids
Flexibility is the key to a fuss-free relationship; Rafa is headed by a married couple who clearly understand what we’re talking about. Their changeable Bunk Bed can adopt several positions to fit a room perfectly. It has wheels for easy movement and ladders on either side for a fair match between siblings, whatever their age. Its cutting edge design meets simple practicality.

Scanning through our countdown so far, you might be looking for a chunkier piece, one that gets the absolute most out of the dimensions it occupies. Quite literally, Asoral points a straight line towards incredible storage – the designer’s rectangular obsession is centred on neat shapes that aren’t fussy and ostentatious. Their Kids Cabin Bed shows just what can be done with a renewed focus on practicality, featuring 8 generous drawers to ground your kid’s tidying routine.

Oliver Furniture brings a smart touch to their setup with items like the Luxury High Loft Bed, standing tall and refined in the modern bedroom. Kids from 8+ will grow into the lush curves of this classic, making your investment count as they stray into teenage-hood. There’s also a generous space underneath for any bits and bobs to accumulate in.

Cuckooland staples for some time now, Woood continues to amaze us with their bold, eco-friendly take on pine products. Their Teepee Cabin Bed exemplifies this: a simple frame that does a lot to bring a room to life. Kiddies will feel like they’re out in the elements, braving a calm night under the stars. It’s hard to come by a more natural state of slumber…

Danish maestros Lifetime go a step further in delivering a strong, homely aesthetic to their cabin styles. You can see the attention that goes into their constructs, like this Hangout Mid Sleeper Bed, which features quirky rafters and a play area below. The wood is carefully treated before it’s shipped off, meaning the quality structure will stay beautiful for years to come.

2. Mathy By Bols

Mathy By Bols has constructed a treehouse (the ultimate base for make believe when we’re young) that your son or daughter can enjoy every single night. It’s a smashing centrepiece for kids who crave adventure, calling out from the top windows when they wake or holding the fort from their sibling.
