Did you know?
The Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars debuted a magnetic floating bed at the 2006 Millionaire Fair in Kortrijk, Belgium. The bed was designed to resemble the Monolith from the film '2001: A Space Odyssey' and is held down by wires so it doesn't float away.
The jury is out whether this sci-fi bed will give you a better night's rest. But if you want to find out, it's going to set you back a cool $1.6 million. However, this is not the world's most expensive bed. That title goes to the Baldacchino Supreme Bed. This bed is hand-crafted from ash, cherry, and chestnut wood, has a canopy adorned with Italian silk, and a headboard featuring diamonds. It's also decorated with over 200 pounds of 24-carat gold. So far only two have been made. And no wonder, since it costs a whopping $6.3 million!
