The Find: a bed that’s also a seven-foot desk—perfect for small spaces
Sometimes, living spaces can be smaller than we’d like, and we sacrifice items we might enjoy (that Noguchi coffee table for example) for the sake of livability. We were fairly impressed when we found this “Wow, is this from the future?” Cabrio sleep-and-work system at Resource Furniture, with a built-in Murphy-style bed, since it not only looks cool (and colourful), but it also frees up a lot of space (each custom-made-in-Italy unit uses hydraulics for easy desk-to-bed transitioning, and some of the unit’s parts are made from titanium, which is why there’s a lifetime guarantee). Of course, we can’t fit on a twin-size bed anymore, but we think this would be perfect for a kid’s room or an office/guest room—or those late work nights when drinking that half-bottle of bourbon seems like a good idea. Starting at $3,414. Find out where to get the Cabrio unit and a video that shows just how it works after the jump.

I have a design for another great space kitchen or dining table that you might be interested in seeing.
This guy lives in 78 sq. ft. in Manhatten and built the same thing for about $50. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4FoAr8i26g Although I have to admit I could use one of those Murphy beds in my den…
Nicki, you cannot be serious to compare the guy in the youtube video with this line of furniture… granted the guy on the video has done a lot with his small apartment, kudos to him. This line of furniture is a great solution for people who can afford the more expensive furniture and use less space.
Guilheme, can you please explain yourself more clearly ? You comment does’nt make any sense…
