For one thing, having something that can adapt to the needs of the moment means that instead of buying separate desks, dressers and a bed, they might be rolled into one, saving a lot of space -- which is useful if you live in a smaller space. Another advantage is that this kind of furniture can adapt over the long term, allowing it to be used not only during childhood, but also in later years. © Nook Bed In collaboration with furniture company JJP, Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar has created a minimalist and multifunctional single bed that can incorporate a number of add-on accessories that increase functionality without compromising on style. It's called the NOOK Bed, designed as a modern, metal-framed canopy bed that can be adapted to suit one's tastes and needs. Watch: NOOK The growing ones from Muebles JJP on Vimeo.

There is a range of colours for the headboard and the cabinets, allowing the bed to match with your home's colour scheme, and it can all be assembled with an Allen key. © Nook Bed As Tiscar explains: Nook, with its essential structure, available in black or white, is very robust and can be accessorized with several furniture elements without wall mounting. This converts it into a special space to sleep, study, play or relax with friends. © Nook Bed © Nook Bed © Nook Bed Conventional single beds seem a bit banal and limited next to something like this, not to mention the canopy factor that allows for a bit more privacy. No word on pricing, but this is a clever bit of modern, multifunctional design that aims for longevity and flexibility, which is always better in the long run. For more info, visit NOOK Bed.
