Humans spend roughly a third of their life sleeping. Aside from the occasional drunken night or camping trip, most of this sleeping is done in a bed. So why, then, are such important objects in our lives often so commonplace and dull?

Beds can be used to express our inner self, to represent our deepest loves or simply help us wake up and get going in the morning. Here are 20 of the most creative and eccentric designs that are sure to put a smile on your face.

1. The Stand Up Bed

Thanks to this novel bed, which resembles a large vertical bean bag, sleeping while standing is apparently very possible.

2. The Floating Bed

This magnetically charged floating bed by Janjaap Ruijssenaars not only looks incredibly chic and contemporary, but also would make it very hard for any monsters to hide underneath it.

3. The Rocking Bed

The 'Private Cloud' is a a patented rocking frame designed by Manuel Kloker, which will be sure to lull you into a serene sleep every night.

4. The Sonic Bed

Kaffe Matthew's Sonic bed probably isn't exactly designed to provide a good night's sleep, created with 12-channel surround sound speakers encased around the edges to cover every cell of your body with musical beats.

5. The Forest Bed

For those who want to have a sense of being out in the wild whilst remaining in the comfort of their own bed, this exotic wooden bed would be the one for you.

6. The Safe Bed

This 'Quantum Sleeper' is the ultimate in protection for those paranoid about the threat of natural disasters, terrorist attacks, kidnappers or any variation therein.

7. The Starfish Bed

Known as the 'Hold Me Bed', this structure will ensure that you overcome those restless nights of tossing and turning because, well, you won't be able to move a muscle.

8. The Hay Bed

Some people have such an affinity for hay they simply want to be surrounded by it when awake and asleep.

9. The Yin and Yang Bed

If you believe you've found your absolute soulmate but can't handle sleeping next to them for whatever reason, perhaps this next bed will provide the solution to your problems.

10. The Sandwich Bed

You are what you eat, right?

11. The Hammock Bed

Everybody loves the tranquil and relaxing sensation induced by the gentle swinging and folding of a hammock.

12. The Pull-Down Bed

If you are crammed for space due to a small apartment or want another handy spare bed that doesn't waste the space of a whole room, then this innovative and nifty pull-down bed is the way to go.

13. The Molecular Bed

Scientists, sportspeople or ball-lovers will be sure to enjoy this bed made of 120 soft and pleasant balls.

14. The Cinderella Bed

Perfectly suited to little princesses with large imaginations and a love for fairytales.

15. The Foetal Position Bed

This bed doesn't leave much margin for movement - that is unless you want to end up snuggling up with the floorboards.

16. The Bird Nest Bed

This large pit of soft pillows encased in a brown, nest-like structure is a novel way to help kids nod off to sleep.

17. The Geometric Bed

If you want to keep the brain cells flowing even when getting some shut-eye, perhaps this bed with a modern geometric structure attached to it is the perfect way to achieve just that.

18. The Brush Bed

This bed looks like it would be jabbing uncomfortable protrusions from every angle.
