We embrace both trend and functionality, giving them their striking appearance.
The upbeat, urban look and sleek design is fashionable enough for adults, yet safe enough for kids, and brings a unique, creative element to any room. Form and function combined make these beds ones that you will be proud to sleep on, excited to show friends and relieved to have some much needed extra space. Francis Lofts & Bunks are built with industry grade aluminum, which is both lightweight and strong. This makes our beds easy to assemble and transport, yet durable enough to hold up to 2,000 pounds of weight.

After graduating from college, Ryan Francis (a 6'3" 185 pound young man) was eager to move downtown to where the restaurants, people, and of course bars were buzzing with action. With rent pushing $1000 / month for a small studio apartment—Ryan was out of options as to how he was going to live comfortably in his dream location.
With a queen mattress and fewer square feet than his parking spot, Ryan turned to the Internet to find a loft bed option that would be contemporary enough to show his friends he had style and maturity, but elevated enough that he could put his loveseat underneath.
After days of searching, Ryan feared that his beloved adult, modern queen loft bed was about as mythical as his hopes of fitting his queen mattress into his small apartment. Nearing defeat, Ryan went to his dad, Patrick, a successful aluminum railings and columns fabricator (see Superior Aluminum Products for your railing and column needs) located in Ohio with 30+ years of experience, and told him the loft bed dilemma. Always enjoying a new product to invent, Patrick set to work with his go-to engineer, Scott, to design and prototype an aluminum queen size loft bed. Within three weeks, the first prototype was standing in Ryan's room. Later enhancements to the product would include a ladder, railing, swiveling x braces for stability and easy installation, and an improved structural design for better appeal and safety.
Within the first few weeks of utilizing his new bed, friend after friend commented on how awesome the loft bed looked in his studio. One month later, Francis Lofts & Bunks would make their first sale. One month after that, the queen bunk bed would be designed and prototyped.
“Amazing! The queen bunk system has been the center of conversation every time we've had guests. Quite possibly the most well built piece of furniture in our house. The adult guests love it just as much as the kids!”
