National Bed Month is upon us

This month is The Sleep Council’s ‘National Bed Month’ running from 1st -31st March, so we thought we would take a look at how beds have been represented in the media through the years with some examples you may recognize and some you will not! There have been some rather interesting designs out there!

As some of you may remember in 1969 John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged a ‘Bed-In’ this was a peace protest against the Vietnam War, one ‘Bed-In’ was held in Amsterdam and the other in Montreal each lasting 7 days each. Just imagine staying in bed that long!

Another incredibly famous bed is Tracey Emin’s Turner Prize nominated work ‘My Bed’. Exhibited in 1999 at the Tate Gallery Emin’s hugely intrusive and very personal art piece caused controversy throughout the world and media frenzy ensued, making this the most memorable unmade bed.
