Like peanut butter M&Ms, sofabeds put two wonderful things into one even awesomer package. People like sitting, and people like sleeping — it’s the perfect combo. So how could a sofabed possibly ever be improved? With an electric mechanism that automatically unfolds and retracts the mattress, with the cushions still attached.
Devices that collect all kinds of fitness and health metrics populated the halls of CES this year, but Sleep Number revealed one of the more intriguing options with its new x12 bed featuring the company’s SleepIQ technology. In addition to providing as comfy a night’s sleep as possible through a series of inflatable cushions and the company’s Sleep Number system, the bed also keeps tabs on your slumber letting you know how restful an evening you had through an accompanying app.
Would you ever walk into a stranger’s home and ask to buy the necklace draped on their side table? Or offer to give them cash for some of their cutlery? No? Well, meet Mira Schröder. She lives in an apartment that functions as a part-time showroom, where everything — including the amazing flippable bed above — is available for purchase on-site.
Using a cleverly engineered counterweight mechanism, these wonderful beds from Italian furniture maker Espace Loggia can be raised to the roof when you’re not sleeping. The design is supposed to free up space in a room during the day so you can squeeze a desk in there or other temporary furniture, but the real reason this exists is obvious: it’s the easiest way to get out of making your bed without looking like a slob.
Scientists claim there are no black holes close enough to harm our solar system. But they’re clearly not acknowledging the black holes that exist under every bed, sucking in and trapping dropped items, random clothing, and seemingly every last speck of dust in a room. There’s a solution though in the form of Letti Bolzan’s clever Iorca bed, which lifts your mattress to turn that under-bed void into tons of easily accessible storage space.
Swiss designer Till Könneker recently came up with a fantastic way to maximise the space in his studio apartment, which lacked room for storage. He created a loft bed called the Living Cube that incorporates everything from an entertainment centre, to a clothes rack, to even a walk-in closet for stashing things he wants kept out of sight.
Spending your life at home and never getting out of bed is not only considered socially unacceptable, it can lead to serious medical conditions like bedsores. But thankfully one of those two concerns has been eradicated thanks to the MAP System, a pressure sensing mat that helps prevent pressure ulcers from happening.
