We've sold this home, but… the room is quite large. It is an attic space with the bunks tucked under the hip wall (under the eaves, where the roof slopes) and with plenty of other space for TV watching, game table, etc. We made the bunks/cubbies long enough to accommodate an extra long twin mattress. So, laying those end to end and with room to spare for a dresser (out of this picture to the right), the length of the wall where the bunks are is roughly 18 feet.

My hubby and a friend built these built-in sleeping nooks. The shutters on the side are hinged and they open so you can make the bed more easily. There is storage under the beds for larger items like stacks of folding chairs and large suitcases.

I'm assuming you mean the red and blue couches and not the sleeper beds behind the curtains. If you want the story of the sleeper beds, please write again and specify.

The red couch was purchased in Beaverton, OR at Bella Furnishings. If you download a copy of the picture and send it to them, they may be able to identify it. I can't recall the brand, as we didn't order that piece through them, but purchased it out of their display. It isn't a pull-out sleeper sofa, just a regular sofa. It is microfiber.

The blue couch, a microsuede, is an AU couch. I believe that AU has been purchased by American Leather. It is a pull-out - the MOST COMFORTABLE we've ever slept on. See here for the product (or one similar)
Macy's used to carry the AU brand. They may still carry this couch, now under the American Leather brand. They are pricey, but well worth it. It's a hide-a-bed you can actually sleep on!!

Good luck with your search!

Janet Kronbach
hi cj - not sure if you are referring to the blue and red couches or are you referring to the coaches, the built in beds? We've never called them that, but I can see that they resemble a train "coach" - or bed. Let me know which and I can explain! ;)

Where can I find this rug?

This is a Susan Sargent rug. She's from Maine. This rug is called Red Paisley. Susan used to have an online presence, but closed her studio down about 2 years ago. She has relaunched, but no longer sells the rugs. The Red Paisley rug appears on this webpage, but it doesn't appear to be for sale.
You may find her rugs via Ebay or Craig's List in your area. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Cozy Up in a Built-In Bed Cubby
Cottages and summer homes are great places for bed cubbies, since they’re often filled with extra family and visitors. This family room transforms into sleeping quarters by night thanks to built-in bed nooks.
