  4. How nice design…
    This design is looking like a Jeep is running in the house. However this is one of the unique bed design platform.

    How cute! And how silly of me to at first jump to the conclusion that “Filip” stood for Filipino… for the Jeepneys that are prevalent in the Philippines. Should’ve realized that this example is too minimalistic for that. ^_^,25862,25988,26091&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=jeepney&cp=5&hl=en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&biw=1094&bih=580

    aduroguy: The ceiling’s probably “tak-ess,” a vinyl coated LDF that is quite common in Scandinavia.

    Jeep is cool, but is that MARKLAND ikea flooring on the ceiling? If it isn’t then hmm…

    All Jeep grills have 7 vertical vents, though I will admit that 5 seems to look better
