Alvar bed from €4,667

4 The Alvar bed looks more like a sofa than a place to sleep, so will work really well in a guest room that needs to double as a study. Completely customisable and made by Italian firm Bonaldo, it comes in a huge range of removable fabric or leather covers including the tonal velvets shown here. Pictured here as a single bed, it can also be ordered as a double and prices start from €4,667 at Baldoyle-based Lomi Design.
