Awesome! Can this bed/lounge be hung up higher to make it a loft? - I have a small room with very high ceilings and would like to apply this as a loft? Do u think that could be done with or without additional support? TIA!

Not sure hanging a bed too high would be a good idea, given the risk of falling out.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Where and How to Toss the Throw Pillows
A hanging bed is a great spot for some throw pillows.
Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Escape: Cut Out to the Caribbean
How about the islands of the Caribbean? I don't know about you, but I can practically feel that island sun now.
Becky Harris added this to Fun Furniture: Chairs in the Air
Give a spectacular view its due.This hanging bed is the ultimate spot for relaxing and enjoying a tropical paradise.
Becky Harris added this to Porch Chat: Sleeping Porches
This bed will gently rock with the breeze, whether you're catching a few winks or settling in for the night.
Take advantage of the view. "This hanging bed is located in the tower of a villa at Jumby Bay in Antigua, West Indies," says Robert Moreland of MCM Architects. "Jumby Bay is a flat island, so the tower provides a great vantage point to overlook the island and the sea. There's also more of a breeze the higher up you are, so the idea of putting a hanging bed here seemed perfect for enjoying the cool breeze while being gently rocked as you nap or read a book."
Use a roof to add style. If you have strong roof supports overhead, consider the unique look of a swinging outdoor bed. “What makes daybeds so inviting is their oversize and relaxed nature,” says Martha Carvalho of Urrutia Designs. “Style them with pillows. The size, colors and arrangement of the pillows will define the character of the daybed and ultimately of your outdoor space.”
Lisa Frederick added this to Give Your Hot-Climate Home a Fall Feel
Create a Spot for Getting CozySuspended from chains, this outdoor bed combines the breezy comfort of a hammock with the cuddle-up style of a cushioned chaise. The persimmon-orange fabric adds a nice autumnal note.
