    Default "a rumbled bed"

    Could anybody tell me what a rumbled bed is?

    (This is from a book.)

    Yawning and stretching, I cross the room, lean on the mantelpiece, and look back at the rumbled bed.

    Looks suspiciously like a typo for "rumpled bed" - one on which the bedclothes are all rumpled up.
