suspended bed

Here's our idea. We would like to suspend our bed from the ceiling with chains. Sounds good but we haven't a clue on how to suspend it properly without possibly having the ceiling come crashing down on us. Is this possible? If so what can we do to ensure it doesn't.
Thank you for any suggestions

It all depends on what you have for ceiling joists. If you have 2x4 ceiling joists then I say forget it. If you have 2x6 or larger you may be in luck. Another factor is how long of a span the joists are.

14' span with 2"x 6" joists, I would not recommend you proceed with your idea, unless you & the spouse are kinda small folks that don't move around much in your sleep. Just curious, where did you come up with an idea like that.
