Take out ornaments, turn mattress.

Maybe these problems aren't tops on your list, but this bed does solve two predicaments: where to store your Christmas ornaments, and how to remember when to turn your mattress. Seattle architect Richard Fisher designed the queen-size bed-really just a box of 3/4-inch plywood-to fit between two support columns from a bearing wall opened up in a remodel. A second pair of columns, added against the wall, makes the bed look like a massive four-poster. When the mattress is removed and the plywood top is lifted off the box, the hollow space underneath reveals an assortment of odd-shaped and unsightly containers of Christmas decorations. December 1, when owners Marj and Loyal Moore trim the house for the holidays, they also turn their mattress.
