Editor’s Choice: Metal and Industrial Style Bunk Beds

7th Mar 2018

The humble bunk bed – loved by parents the world over, this once simple piece of furniture has moved on. No longer the straightforward sleeping solution, this space-saving nighttime wonder provides for a head spinning array of options. Corner construction or over queen decker? Curved ladder, slanted or straight? Twin or triple? Featuring a futon or teamed with a trundle? 

Phew! Who knew that planning for a restful night’s slumber could be so exhausting? 

Here we save you the trouble of a sleep-inducing learning curve, with our editor’s choice of metal bunk beds – with choices perfect for every home.

1 - Camp Style

Durable, functional and perhaps the most traditional of the bunk beds to feature in this editor’s countdown, the camp style bunk bed has proven the staple of the shared kid’s room. Featuring a slightly slanted ladder for a safe clamber up and into bed, this model offers the option to add under-bed drawers (for much needed extra storage), or an under-bed trundle (making this double decker a sleeping space for three).

Perfect for the home that is… Modern and style-conscious – a student room or the family home that serves as an occasional stopover for an additional little one.

2 - Industrial Inspired

Don’t compromise design for the function a bunk bed can provide. The Industrial style Bunk Beds proved that beautiful form can meet practical function. Combining matte black metal with wood panel inserts, this piece of furniture is right on the money when it comes to the enduring industrial trend.

Perfect for the home that is… Always up-to-date and on-trend, yet timelessly understated – this metal bunk bed will stay relevant even as interior design trends change.

3 - Pipe Style

No longer made for just tiny people, metal bunk beds have seriously grown up. The Xavier features not one but two double queen size beds, set within antiqued black industrial piping – for a style nod to days gone by.

Better still, is the fact that these beds can convert back and forth - between stacked or separate queen doubles – now that’s innovation.

Perfect for the home that is… Forever welcoming guests over the threshold who are full grown, or the home that is soon to be upgraded to one with more space (and more bedrooms).

4 - Futon Bunk

Showcasing the same brushed black metal/wood combo as the Austin Industrial Inspired Metal Twin Bunk Bed, this futon bunk will allow you to sleep soundly and in style at night, while sitting back and relaxing by day. This bunk provides the best of both worlds, with a futon that flips back and forth from bed to sofa.

Perfect for the home that is… Stylish student digs, or a home with a tween or teen that needs a mate-friendly sitting space.
