Look in the Better Homes and Garden Magazine  - Aug 2006 issue and look at this hanging bed on a porch.  Sure looks fun.

There is also a photo of such a porch in Log Home designs, the floorplans issue, February 2006-My husband and I saw it and now cannot find anything on the web advertised for purchase or creation! But, we want one!

Good luck,

Jamie and Chad

If you use your internet browser and search under "porch swingbed" or "swing bed" you will find quite a few for sale. Or an alternative would be to purchase a daybed and hang it yourself. Good Luck!

Dear Christy,

I was recently at a park in a small town in Wisconsin with my grandchildren.  In an adjacent yard, there was a screen-in 'tent'(perhaps 8x8) with a solid canopy top. Inside was a hanging double bed.  It was all I could do not to go and crawl in that bed and live out the rest of my life!

Though I did not get a really close look, it certainly did not appear to be homemade.  I have been searching several websites to see if I can find anything like that - indoors or out - and have not had much luck.

So are we just on the cutting edge of a new trend, or has this been tried before and been found to be flawed?

To Jerry, Do you have any pictures of your metal swing beds? Do you have a website that I can check out ? I might be interested in buying one. Thank K

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
