Sleeping On The Floor Not Fun

Bed on the floor and moving boxes as night stands

Why are we sleeping on the floor? Since we are furnishing the new apartment, I decided I wanted to get Chinese style modern furniture. Think Ikea meets Asia, only challenge, I need to find the places that sell it at Ikea prices. This will take time.  I decided to get the mattress from Ikea and we can sleep on the mattress on the floor until we find the furniture we want. It is not as fun as I thought it would be. I thought it would be like a flashback to college or being newlyweds. HA! Maybe when you are college age it is easier but I am getting old and sleeping on a mattress on the floor is reminding me of it. The floor is very low. Having to get up, once down, is a challenge and not in a good way. Todd after one night of sleeping on the floor and not even being in Shanghai for 24hrs demanded we get a bed. So much for my modern Chinese furniture. Off to Ikea we went and we slept our last night on the floor. Todd did a total of 4 nights and I did 5 nights on the floor. Lets see how long the moving box coffee table and tv stand will last.

    Tradition dictates Janpanese sleep on thin bambo floor mats. Are there Chinese beds that rise above the floor?
