Title: Furniture system

Abstract: A furniture system includes a bed section and a work and storage section, each of which includes spaced end frame assemblies defined by corner posts and cross-members. The corner posts of each section can be stacked using a connector member to provide a loft bed configuration, and various storage or work components, such as a desk, are connectable to the posts below the bed. The posts include inwardly and outwardly facing recesses, and spaced vertical slots are formed in one of the recess walls. The bed includes rails having end tabs engageable within selected slots for adjustably securing the bed rails to and between the posts. The storage components and the desk also include bracket structure having tabs engageable within the post slots for adjustably mounting such components to the posts.
