Artist seeks crowdfunding for 'Pizza Bed'


Recommended Posts

NEW YORK, Dec. 5 (UPI) --

The Pizza Bed, dreamed up by Brooklyn artist Claire Manganiello, is composed of sauce-printed sheets, pillow cases designed to resemble crust and a duvet cover printed with a cheese-and-pepperoni design to turn any standard twin, full, queen- or king-size bed into a sleepable, if not edible, pizza.

"It's 3 a.m. on a Sunday morning, I'm shivering on a Brooklyn street corner in the dead of winter, clutching a slice of pizza and wishing aloud that I could actually crawl inside of it, where it's safe and warm. Suddenly, somewhere deep inside my frozen and beer-fueled brain, Pizza Bed was born

The artist said she decided to crowdfund the project when her design went viral about a year later.

"I decided it was time to make this dream a reality for all my pizza-loving brethren," she wrote. "I'm here because I love pizza and I want to sleep inside it. If you feel as strongly as I do about the most perfect food in the universe, then the Pizza Bed is the bed for you."

The Kickstarter page is seeking to raise $125,848 by Dec. 29 to put the Pizza Bed sets into production. The page had raised $16,272 by noon Friday.
