How It All Started
Biggabed 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 Biggabeds have been sold across six different schools in the U.S. We expanded to serve Bucknell students in 2023!

Sustainability is super important, but so is immediate impact. That's why, every year, Biggabed 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.
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!
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.
