What is a Teepee bed?

A teepee bed (also referred to as Tipi Bed) is a single bed with a tipi structure frame. Some teepee bed frames are a more open design as seen here with the Cool Kids Single Tipi Bed, whilst other’s provide a more enclosed bed, like our bestselling Kids Teepee Cabin by Woood.

Teepee tent beds are a super bed for a kid’s themed bedroom and are the perfect addition to any little adventurer’s bedroom, making bedtime a more fun experience.
