I'd never heard of this until I was reading about the poet Robert Burns' home in Scotland. It's called a box-bed, and it's actually built into the wall, and attached to the ceiling. Great as a space saver in a small cottage. The box-bed at the Burns cottage was shared by the whole family (oh, my!) and was nothing like this beautiful carved one.
