No other piece of kid’s furniture offers the promise of fun and fond memories like a trundle bed. (I can still tell you exactly what my trundle bed looked like, some 25 years later.) The trundle pulls out for impromptu sleepovers, and as kids grow up, the mattress can be removed, revealing a capacious storage drawer. Here are our 10 favorites across the pricing spectrum.
Above: Ikea’s Släkt Twin Bed Frame features both storage drawers and a pullout bed; $249 at Ikea. Above: The New York–based kids brand Oeuf makes the Sparrow Twin Bed ($898) that pairs with the Sparrow Trundle Bed ($296). Both are available in either birch or walnut from Oeuf. Above: The Room & Board Steel Twin Trundle Bed ($399) rolls out on wheels from underneath the Parsons Twin Bed ($599); both shown in natural steel. The pair can also be found in a range of powder-coated colors: the Steel Twin Trundle Bed in Colors ($479) with the Parsons Twin Bed in Colors ($699). Above: The West Elm Urban Daybed with Trundle is upholstered in stone-colored fabric over a wood frame and has a trundle (it includes a slim mattress); $1,199 at West Elm. Above: From Pottery Barn Teen (PB Teen), the Hampton Daybed & Trundle has traditional details and moldings made from white-painted pine and MDF. The daybed and trundle can be bought separately or together ($934) at PB Teen. Above: The West Elm Parsons Daybed is made of engineered wood with a white lacquered finish; $1,099 (mattress sold separately). Above: Urban Green Furniture’s Thompson Trundle Bed is the one our editor in chief Julie Carlson chose for her guest room. It’s available in maple, cherry, walnut, or painted MDF; starts at $1,049 at Urban Green Furniture. (You can also see the bed in situ in Steal This Look: A Belgian-Inflected Guest Bedroom, 100 Square Feet Small.) Above: The Habitat Pongo White Single Trundle Bed is the EU option among our 10. It’s available in white, sized for European mattresses, and includes a foam mattress for the trundle; £495 at Habitat. Above: Another style from Oeuf, the white River Twin Trundle Bed ($296) pairs with the River Twin Bed in birch or walnut ($740). The mattress is sold separately. Above: Also from Urban Green Furniture, the Thompson Twin Trundle Bed with Headboard is $1,149 at Urban Green.
