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.
