Add warmth with a throw
It’s not exactly the warmest of weather at the moment, especially at night, and if your thoughts are turning towards autumn warmers already, then adding a throw to a sofa or bed provides a great bit of extra warmth.
This magenta pink ripple throw by KAS can be used for just that and provides a lovely bright splash of colour for a dull day or dark evening. The ripple effect is stylish and sets it apart from plain throws. When it gets really cold, why not wrap yourself up in it too?
The ripple throw in magenta costs £45 from Selfridges.

Multi-purpose guest bed
If you’ve not got room to have a double or king size guest bed permanently in a spare room, but do want extra beds available occasionally for guests, then here’s a good multi-purpose solution.
This guest bed, which is handmade in Wiltshire, consists of one single upholstered divan bed that has an easy to pull-out extra bed hidden underneath it.
Whilst some pull-out beds result in the second person sleeping at a different level, this one is good in that, once the sturdy legs are up, it’s positioned at the same level as the main bed, easily converting it into a superking size bed. The mattresses can be zipped together, so they’ll be no issues of a guest slipping between the gap in the beds during the night!
When not in use, the bed beneath slips tidily away out of sight and you’ll be able to make full use of the rest of the room. It’s a nice alternative to permanently having to squeeze around the edges of a double bed in a room where you could do with more space.
The guest bed is available from Loaf.

Baldacchino Supreme bed
You could be looking at the world’s most expensive bed!
That’s the claim being made in some quarters after this exclusive bed went on sale priced at £4 million.
This luxury four poster double bed, called the Baldacchino Supreme bed, was created by British designer, Stuart Hughes, and Italian design company, Hebanon. It’s handcrafted from chestnut and ash wood, with a cherry wood canopy, and is inlaid with 107kg (236lb) of 24ct gold.
Any old bedding of course won’t do, so the bed comes complete with Italian silk and cotton drapes. The headboard can even be customised to accommodate diamonds for the ultimate in bling finish!
Only two of the Baldacchino Supreme beds, suitable for billionaires, have been made and each has taken three months to make. Amazingly, one of the beds has already been purchased by an Italian businessman. Could the other one be yours?!

Leather Park Lane TV bed
A leather bed is the ultimate in luxury and this one, from Furniture Village, has the added bonus of also having a 26″ HD LCD TV built into it.
The flat screen TV is in the foot of the bedstead and there’s space provided to house a DVD player too, with connections for a SCART and two HDMi cables. All the cables and wires are cleverly hidden beneath the slatted beech wooden base, so you won’t be faced by wires as you get in and out of bed.
The double leather TV bed is available in a range of five colours, including this lovely pale cream shade. The usual Furniture Village price for the Park Lane TV Bed is £4795, but if you buy it now, it’s only £2595.

Vienna faux leather bed
Leather look headboards and beds continue to be popular in contemporary homes, but are often expensive to buy. That’s why we were surprised and pleased to discover this faux leather double bed for under £200! Yes, you read that right.
The Vienna faux leather double bed is a standard 4′ 6″ size and is made from a lovely brown, soft-touch faux leather that looks very much like the real thing. The contrast stitching defines the style and, with its high headboard and low footboard, it’s a striking piece.
It would look great in any modern bedroom and could be dressed up with nicely with contrasting or coordinating bed linen. If storage is an issue in the bedroom, then there is the option of having the Vienna bed with storage facilities too, although it will cost a little bit more.
The basic, non-storage Vienna faux leather double bed is available from RoomsToGo for only £185.

Private Cloud rocking bed
As far as unusual beds go, this has to be one of the more unique bed designs ever produced.
The idea behind the bed is that, as children, we get used to being rocked off gently to sleep. It’s a calming and relaxing process, so why not offer a rocking bed for adults too?
The rocking bed is made from wood, which has been carefully bent to produce the wonderful rounded effect. The bed can be used in its natural state, with a gentle rocking movement, or put into a sloping position, which is great for reading in bed, sleeping or watching TV. The feet at the bottom of the construction help to keep the bed steady and stable – and if you get fed up with the rocking movement, then you can easily remove them.
The rocking bed is about to gain fame, as it’s featuring in top German TV soap, Sturm der Liebe, during the month of June. This rather nifty bed has been made by Private Cloud, and you can find out more details here.
