From peace protests, to art installations, to golden puffy burgers, even beds can eventually find fame, and for varied reasons. Below are five of our favorite paparazzi-plagued slumber stations.
1. My Bed
This controversial piece of work done by British artist Tracey Emin in 1998 is an unmade bed surrounded by cigarette butts, discarded condoms, and empty vodka bottles.
2. The Protest Bed
The bed where John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their two week-long Bed-ins for Peace to protest the Vietnam War at two hotels, the Amsterdam Hilton and the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal.
3. The Great Bed of Ware
More thank 15 people could sleep comfortably in this gigantic bed built by Jonas Fosbrooke, a carpenter for the White Hart Inn in Ware, England in 1580.
4. The Lincoln Bed
The rosewood bed that can be found on the second floor of the White House and is open to visitors was never actually used by Abraham Lincoln. Several presidents did use this bed later though.
5. Elvis’s Hamburger Bed
This golden brown monstrosity resembles a hamburger, has a stereo inside the headboard, and was owned by Elvis. The Country Music Hall of Fame sold it in 2007 for $50,000.
