Our Story

About Us

How It All Started

Bigg-A-Bed was conceptualized in 2019 at Middlebury College from a late-night conversation between friends in Hadley Hall. What came shortly after was the first prototype on the right, created with broken hockey sticks, tape, and 3D-printed hooks. 

Luckily for you, our product has improved drastically since 2019 and over 1000 Bigg-A-Beds have been sold across six different schools in the U.S.!

The Team


Direct Charity

Sustainability is super important, but so is immediate impact. That's why, every year, Bigg-A-Bed will donate 5% of profits to an organization whose goal is to create positive change and assist those marginalized by the society we live in.

Frame Recycling

Our wooden frames are custom-made to support you and your sleep. Once they get worn out, they'll be repurposed through a range of partner companies for a variety of different needs. Nothing will be wasted!


Tree Planting

It's pretty simple; for every bed we rent, we plant two trees. We did the math - each of our bed frames uses about 1/20th of the average sized-logging tree. We decided we'd plant two trees anyways.
