Your bed and comfy mattress should be your safe haven, the place you to go at the end of the day to ease your mind and body in sleep. From humble beginnings, the bed has risen in opulence and in some designs has become downright strange. Over the years, we have seen the bed being reinvented time and time again and it continues to evolve as people demand more and more from this piece of furniture that allows us to experience a peaceful night’s sleep. By looking at past trends in bed designs, we offer ten crazy predictions for the future of beds.
1. Future Capsule or Pod Beds that are Smart
Though the capsule bed has already been seen in futuristic movies and in some designer’s collections, we are now seeing this type of bed getting more recognition. Future capsule or pod beds will create a surrounding atmosphere for its occupant that includes temperature control, surround sound, and special lighting for a more peaceful sleep. Some predict that the newest capsule beds will feature implanted computer systems and will have the ability to sense the comfort level of their sleeper, to adjust the lighting, temperature, and sounds for the most relaxing sleep possible.
2. A Wave of Massage
We have all heard of the massage bed that you put a quarter in and get a little rumbling action from, but what if your next bed had a built in wave system of massage that gently worked each muscle group and even rocked you gently to sleep? These beds feature an alarm system that naturally wakes the occupant by creating a gentle rocking motion and lighting change that helps the body to naturally awaken.
3. Social Media Beds with Extra Entertainment
One of the latest trends in beds is leaning towards the more computer-friendly.

With a built-in entertainment center, these beds are sure to make it on the scene very soon.
4. TV in a Canopy
One of the latest predictions in beds, is the canopy style pod bed. This bed features a media screen on the top of the canopy that allows occupants to watch TV or movies and browse the Internet. The screen is built into the canopy and can be shut off to reveal a plain canopy top when sleeping.
5. The Perfect Temperature
The future of beds seems to be building towards more interactive and personalized modes of sleeping. The latest technology allows bed designers to reach out to the more tactile sleeper. These beds have intuitive design features that allow for the bed to intelligently know when to turn down the temperature or when to turn it up. The bed creates a peaceful atmosphere that becomes exactly what the person needs without them waking up or pushing any buttons. Music and light are changed to create an ambient atmosphere that all occurs with the power of the computer technology.
6. Magnetic Floating Beds
