I would like to speak to the concerns that some have mentioned about hanging beds being unstable and hard to sleep in. As you can see, I commented earlier on this article with a way to reduce the movement of your hanging bed. Since then, I have come up with a way to eliminate the sway altogether (and still keep the look of a hanging bed).

I would like to speak to the concerns that some have mentioned about hanging beds being unstable and hard to sleep in. I am a furniture builder, and have built hanging beds for some of my clients (for example, photo #1, top row in the above article). I posted an article on my blog yesterday about how I deal with the "sway" problem: http://benriddering.com/2012/06/20/put-your-hanging-bed-hang-ups-to-rest/

I build custom furniture and doors for a living www.benriddering.com . I built a hanging bed about a year ago for some of my clients. I provided them with an eyelet to screw to their floor in the center of the bed. Then I provided an eyelet on the inside of each corner of the bed. If a person wanted to minimize the sway of the bed, they could run ropes from each bed corner down to the floor eyelet (and because the floor eyelet is at the center of the bed you don't see it). If you like a little sway, you could run bungie cords instead of ropes (bungies give a little). Now the bed can't sway, but it CAN rotate. The only way to prevent rotation is to run the ropes at an outward angle to the ceiling (instead of straight up, run the ropes out from the bed in each direction). The further out you run the ropes, the less rotation you will have. Good luck!
