It's time to give up the Ikea daybed I got last summer. It really doesn't suit the style we like but it definitely comes in handy when people stay overnight. I was purusing Dwell magazine recently and came across some amazing samples of the updated "futon" couch motif.
Apt_NY: Lounge in Lime
Mobelform: cabrio-in (under products/sofabeds) They have an amazing assortment under the sofabeds and wallbeds. The cabrio-in is a bed and desk in one. The desk rises when the bed is unfolded. This would be ideal in a dorm or small office/guest room.
So as you can tell we're trying to make the office more inviting and relaxing when doing writing or emailing but also be useful when we have a guest. If we end up moving to a large metro city it would be great to have this type of furniture for economizing on space.
Design within Reach also a few that were quite interesting.
