You can get away with pine for a bed, but I would never recommend it for an X-frame chair. (And frankly I wouldn't make a bed out of it either, because it will get dinged up too quickly. But my time frame seems to be different from most folks'... I expect a piece of furniture to last a lifetime, at least.) The joinery on an X-frame requires a lot of strength in the wood, more than pine can offer, IMO.

I am thinking of a folding or break-down chair/thrown and a break-down bed.
Chair: probably an X-chair with back attached using a sort of tusk tenon.
Bed: Viking style using tusk tenon joints.
