This model of a cute double bunk bed setup from 1961 was created to display the bedding — but it also showed a really clever way to put four single beds into one room, while still giving everyone their own space.
Each bed in this retro children’s bedroom with 4 bunks had its own storage area (the green bed has its bonus space on the right, while all the others have a shelf in the inside corner), while the color-coded under-bed storage added clutter control to the charm.
Note: These are not full-size twin mattresses — they were shortened to appear in this photo.

Top right: RATTAN, in gold for the sophisticate who leads the shibui craze on the campus.
Bottom left: COBBLESTONE, in lilac for the unpredictable modernist.
Bottom right: CHECKMATE, in green for the gal who can quote quotes on everyone from Maude Adams to Zen. (Or Mickey Mantle, for that matter.)
