We have been beyond thrilled with the response we have received after debuting our new Hidden Desk Bed at the 2012 Home Renovation show. The comments and suggestions have been overwhelmingly positive. People have ideas for the HDB that we hadn't even considered. One gentleman who visited us at the show suggested it would make a great basement bar for 360 days of the year and when the mother-in-law visits for a week you don't even have to remove the bottles!
Since the show wrapped we have been inundated with calls and emails asking questions and booking free in-home consultations. Ottawa loves this bed!
For those who couldn't make it to the show here are a couple of photos of the space we lived in for 3 entire days:
The bed went up, the bed went down. The bed caught everyone's attention. Walking around the show you constantly heard people talking about us and how amazing this bed was. Even the other exhibitors were abandoning their own products to come by and see what everyone is talking about.

The single (Twin) bed and the double bed are launched and ready to go. We expect the Queen bed to be available in about 90 days. Be among the first to be told when the Queen bed is available. Submit a consultation request and we will give you a sneak peek before it is released.

I know it has been a couple of months since we have had to worry about hectic school mornings. Maybe you have blocked it from your mind like a bad movie… but let’s face facts… the sequel is right around the corner.
Many of our clients tell the same story… school mornings that involve screaming, begging, pleading, crying and ultimately “missed the bus” or “late for work”.
Kids need 3 basic areas in their rooms besides sleeping space. They need a space for clothes and shoes; homework and/or computer space; and a space for toys and books. So how do you make that happen? Well- the logical choice for homework and computer space is a desk. Most people think closets and dressers for clothing and standing storage or shelving for toys and books.
The average children’s bedroom is lined wall to wall with furniture and storage in an effort to get organized. That doesn’t need to be the case anymore. Custom storage can be much more than simply a pretty place to hang your dresses. How about a desk space with shelving and cubbies, drawers and cupboards? It offers enough space to store homework and books as well as toys and a computer. This would be the place where library books are kept so you are not hunting all over the house the day they are due. This space would be home to schoolbooks so the kids are not hunting for that math book as the bus pulls up to the driveway.
How about the kid’s wardrobes? Imagine a custom closet space that allows for easy access to clothing and shoes. No more “where are my favourite jeans” only to head upstairs and find them at the bottom of the pyjama drawer. These closet systems are designed around your kid’s habits… their strengths and weaknesses; and taking time and effort into consideration… things kids these days have typically in short supply.
So- what do we end up with at the end of the day? Two pieces of furniture – one of which is in the closet. Can you imagine the floor space? Can you imagine leaving the toy storage unit at the curb? How about never having to hold your daughter’s hand through clothing selection again?
It almost makes school mornings seem easy… doesn’t it?
