Five Ridiculous Beds and Their Unbelievable Prices

February 25, 2014


There is nothing like the comfort of a quality mattress and buying the right one is an investment that is sure to pay you back many times over the years. But what happens when you spend way too much on a bed?

We take a look at some the most ridiculously expensive beds out there and the small fortunes that they cost.

 

5. Karim Rashid’s Sphere Bed

Costs about R550 000

While this bed might look different and unique, I can’t help but feel that it actually looks like a velvet dog basket…  The Sphere Bed comes with a 32” tv, LED canopy lights, a mirror on the back and a champagne holder. For this price I hope that it comes with a lifetime’s supply of champagne so that you don’t realise that you are sleeping in a doll bed.

 

 

4. Cosmovoide Bed

 

Costs around R660 000

 

While the Cosmovoide’s designs wanted to make something that is cosmic and different this just looks like something that would be in a Roald Dahl book. While it features “electric relaxation bed frames”, rainbow coloured LEDs, and a DVD home theatre system in it. Oh, and it also has a built in telephone so that you can avoid arduous chore of putting your iPhone on the night stand. Facepalm.



3. Quantum Sleeper

Costs around R 1.72 million

While it might sound like a prop from the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace, it is infact the perfect bed for those insane dictators and those who are prone to being attacked by terrorists. Seriously. It can seal into an airtight panic room complete with filtration systems, intruder alarms, oxygen sensors, emergency communication systems with battery backups and a built in toilet. The only problem with this is what if the terrorists attack when you are at work? ‘MURICA!




2. Janjaap Ruijssenaars’ Magnetic Floating Bed

Costs around R 17.2 million

Ok, this one is seriously cool. Imagine a bed that is floating above the ground! The Dutch designer behind this bed used super powerful magnets to make this bed levitate above the ground. The bed is kept in position by tiny wires that are fixed to the wall. I’m just worried what will happen to any metal object, cell phone or belt buckle that is brought within ten meters of it...

1. Baldacchino Supreme

Costs around R70 million

Read the price again: R70 000 000. While only two of these beds have actually been built, it is still unbelievable that there are people out there that are willing to throw this type of money around. I mean seriously for that price you could buy: Two Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesses or five houses in Camps Bay or twenty Ferrari FFs or fly first class around the world 514 times.  

This bed is made with hand carved ash, chestnut and cherry wood, with 107 kg of 24 carat gold inlay. Just don’t tell number 1 or he might want one for himself...
