The short beds in the Martin master bedroom are unfortunate, indeed. But along with the fuss, there should be an explanation of how many versions of a plan for the space were done to afford all the amenities the Martins wanted in their room, especially enough closet space. To some degree, the end result has to be blamed on the clients.
Was just looking at the Bazett plan yesterday and noticed a full complement of hexagonal beds and couches---fitted into their spaces like bees in a honeycomb, or bedpods is some future space colony somewhere ?
Of the plans above, the first is a period Taliesin presentation plan found at Artstor; the second drawing (a faithful as-built ?) was found in Chronicle Books' "Romanza" (1988).
