Now this bed makes a statement, this would look so lovely with fairy lights around it, maybe a few hanging plants dangling down. It's also a really practical buy too, because there are four massive storage drawers underneath. You might think at first glance this would be best for a larger bedroom, but we are thinking this would actually be a great piece for a small space – ditch the chest of drawers and just have this bed instead.
