Twitter’s not so Bed

I may be complaining about Twitter but I have learned a lot this morning from all the interesting tweets and here is a wonderful site full of inventive beds. Toxel.com, I am gathering, is the go-to site for creative options on and off the web. Check out the beds.

But my fav is a beauty from Okooko, a 3-month-old eco-friendly mattress and bedroom-furniture company from New Zealand. (US store in Philly. ) Their beds are made of wood from sustainable forests managed by the New Zealand government. This one is called Float ($25,000, including the mattress) by David Trubridge, a New Zealand designer. Okooko promises to plant a native tree in New Zealand for every bed sold.
