Did you know that reading in bed was once considered a dangerous or even an immoral practice? Back in the day when it necessitated candlelight that could easily catch bed curtains on fire, it may have made sense. Even such life-threatening concerns aside, though, reading in bed was seen as a sign of luxury as well as rebellion against expected social norms. Today, of course, most of us would prefer our children reading in bed to basking in the sleep-depriving light of their screens. To help accommodate that desire, why not equip your son or daughter with a bookcase bed? In the first volume on this topic, we took a look at the bookcase bed that's part of the Montauk Collection. Now we'll explore a second option.
Designed particularly for boys, the Fulton County Collection offers a handful of great pieces all with a rustic, casual style. Each one is crafted using kiln-dried wood with a Tawny Brown finish that allows you to see the grain of the wood. In addition to the Bookcase Bed, this small-scale collection includes 3 drawer storage pieces as well as a desk and chair, a mirror, an underbed storage drawer unit, and a bunk bed. Drawer storage pieces include smooth-acting, full-extension drawer glides as well as built-in drawer stops, English dovetailing, and finished, no-snag interiors. Drawers also incorporate oil-rubbed bronze hardware for a touch of rustic charm.
The Fulton County Lounge Bed is unique in many ways. For one thing, it's the only single bed included in the collection. For another thing, it takes the format of a daybed, with the headboard along the long side of the bed. This, of course, means that it offers even more bookshelf space than a headboard otherwise would. Like the Fulton County Bunk Bed, the Bookcase Lounge Bed includes a solid slat roll foundation and secure bolt-on side rails. This bed comes in 2 sizes: Full and Twin.
In either size, it offers an abundance of storage. With 4 larger spaces in the central portion of the headboard, the two side sections include dividers for smaller books or other items. Thanks to cord access holes, the shelves can also accommodate an alarm clock or other electronic items. This bed can be paired with the Fulton County Underbed Storage Drawer for even more multi-functional benefits.
Of the many benefits of encouraging reading for pleasure and even reading in bed, here's one more that perhaps you haven't thought of: "Take a good book to bed with you. Books do not snore." You have to admit: Thea Dorn has a pretty good point.
