Hang in there:
When Carson and Cindi Rembert needed extra space in their small two-bedroom house for a new baby and guests, they designed and created a hanging bed. Then Carson built a second one for the backyard. Friends and family were intrigued and wanted hanging beds too. Within months, the Remberts were growing their new hanging bed business.
The company: Custom Carolina Hanging Beds was founded in 2013 in Charleston, S.C.
The founders and background: Carson, a master carpenter for 20 years, is from Beaufort. Cindi, who has a hospitality degree from the University of South Carolina, grew up in Nicholls, Ga.
The goods: Custom, handmade hanging beds in several different designs and two sizes: twin and crib. Hanging beds come fully assembled.
What’s popular: The more traditional “Historic Hilton Head Hanging Bed” (starting at $1,450) and “The Beaufort Hanging Bed” with its simple, more modern feel (starting at $1,350). Cushion packages start at $750. Bed prices include shipping.
Fun (or unusual) request: A trapezoid hanging bed designed by a customer.
Claim to fame: Designed and built a hanging bed for the TV show “Treehouse Masters.”
