With internal shelving, under-bed storage and a stained glass window, the boxbed is an ideal sleeping space in the living room for extra guests or just a cosy place to curl up with a good book.


Traditional boxbeds came in all shapes and sizes. This one measures 1.81m x 1.32m (5'11'' x 4'4''). It is wider than a single bed but shorter than a double bed.
