Bunk bed sales soar?


According to today's Los Angeles Times Home and Garden Section, the bunk bed is back in.

Citing the economy, this feature piece says sales of the humble bunk bed are soaring, as growing families have to make due with smaller spaces.

Well, I suppose it needed something to say to wrap around the photos of $3,000 bunk bed sets. Sales may indeed be soaring, but bunk beds are nothing new to Los Angelenos used to high rents and higher housing prices. Three bedrooms? That's a luxury for the money'd classes. When two-bedroom houses in decent neighborhoods go for upwards of $500K (still) it's a pretty big "duh" to claim that bunk beds are "back in." Surely the copy writer is from Kansas.
