Captain's Bed

This type of bed features a visible platform base with built-in storage inside the platform, such as drawers or cubbies. The unique name derives from its use on ships where space was limited and storage was essential. Modern takes on this bed include storage built into the headboard, footboard or compartments surrounding the bed. Its sturdy structure and optimal storage make it a practical solution for small apartments and children's bedrooms. Image courtesy of South Shore Furniture
