Loft beds are typically elevated beds that are paired with a desk underneath. This design could also be a bunk bed but I already designed one for Ghostbusters. Went with the original firehouse toy playset for the look, as I felt it was more colorful and fun.
The garage door is a built-in dresser, and there are more drawers facing the desk too. Originally I wanted to include a functional fire pole to slide down but that might be too difficult to execute (might need to be anchored into the ceiling and floor?).
If you think this is over-the-top you should see this backyard Ghostbusters firehouse that some parents are building for their extremely lucky kid. If you are a parent, backyard, or Ghostbusters fan, you officially suck now and should rethink all of your life choices.
More furniture designed with geeks in mind, this is a simple bed frame that will hold your phone or tablet for you. Let’s be real, 99% of people climb into bed staring at a screen, so why not get the bed to hold it up for you?

Another item I was thinking of creating for the interior of the Ghostbusters Tiny House, a round bed design based on Stay Puft’s sailor hat. It wouldn’t be a life-size replica, but this large bed would be an eye-catching addition to any geek’s bedroom.
I made the red tassle into a headboard for this design, but if you wanted you could ditch the headboard and attach a loose red tassle to the center of the blanket and have it hang over the side, just like the actual hat. Not pictured: white pillows and a white blanket, to blend in with the hat.
On a related note, I’m surprised no one made a round bed based on the OREO cookie. Looking at round beds for my research I was constantly reminded of the cream-filled snack. Now you can share my craving! I’m so evil.
Another bunk bed design, this one based on interim Autobot leader Ultra Magnus. His car carrier/transport alt-mode is ideal for a bunk bed configuration, with the truck cab being used for storage.
If you want to take this idea even further, you could park a few car beds on it (both given an Autobot makeover of course), but that would require an even bigger Ultra Magnus.
Side note: here is a cool Optimus Prime bunk bed that was made for a couple of lucky rugrats.
Here is another bed design that I discarded a few months ago, because several others beat me to the punch. I’m posting it now because I felt there needed to be a design that was more functional and aimed at grown-ups.
The side engines are drawers, the top engine is a foldaway lamp. The sides of the mattress could be enclosed into the Landspeeder, but my preference is for an unobstructed mattress.
The bed would float from a small box frame underneath, or clear acrylic feet shown here. LED running lights could be placed underneath, which is all the rage with floating beds nowadays.
Actually started on this one before the Jurassic Park bunk bed, but stopped because I felt it looked too much like a School Bus. Thought I’d share it now because it’s still fun to look at.
The ladder is usually on the passenger side of the vehicle, however I moved it over for presentation purposes. The front of the Ecto-1 would serve as a trunk for storage.
Here’s a design for kids: a bunk bed based on the Velociraptor cage from the first Jurassic Park film. The box shape and ladder make for a perfect bunk bed.
It features a sliding door that allows access to the lower bed. You could make lift gates at both ends of the bed to match the cage, but I think that would make getting in and out of bed rather annoying.
Some lighting would be helpful for the lower bunk too, if only to recreate the “Raptor getting tased” scene!
I didn’t think of this until now, but several drawers and cubby-holes can also be implemented throughout the bed frame, to help store junk and such.
In summary, the greatest parents ever would make this for their kids.
