My ideal bed is a cupboard or box-bed. Two examples are shown here, old and new. In very old European homes, these box beds were the only means of privacy. They usually had either doors or a curtain to pull over the front.    Here’s an interesting tidbit: some of the old box-beds are particularly short — not because people were much shorter then, but because TB was common, and people sometimes slept in a sitting position to relieve pressure on the chest!
