This is the story of birth, life, and death ... told with (unusual) beds!
Cribs and Cradles
Make sure your baby gets the right start with this $15,000 carriage crib!
... or if that's too rich for you, how about these round cribs from Petit Trésor? At less than one-tenth the price, they're a bargain!
But if you're a bad baby, here's the crib for you, an installation piece called Mama Tried by Jack Daws:
What? A regular bed for Daddy's little girl? Never! Not when you can have this $47,000 Cinderella pumpkin-shaped carriage bed from Posh Tots:
... or for the boys, how about a pirate ship bed from V.I.P. Kids? Just £3750.00 ...

Beds for the Young and Restless
And now, a bed for the, um, romantic period of your adult life ...

Very comfy (erhm, for sleeping of course, what were you thinking?)
Bed for Couples
Then onto having your own place, and perhaps a significant other and a more mature taste ...

After a while, you've started to build some assets ... and along with money comes paranoia (or is it just prudence?) So here's the perfect bed/tank combo:
... and after a while, comfort is all that matters, so here's an electric adjustable bed from Relax The Back (I so want this, but my wife vetoed this idea because she knows that I'll just make it go up and down while she's trying to sleep ... She's a smart woman!)

The tomb of Charles Pigeon, the inventor of a non-exploding gas lamp (I suppose that's very important), in Cimetière de Montparnasse, signifies eternal rest for him and his wife.
