Everybody wants to visit NYC, and as most New Yorkers know from firsthand experience, whether you like it or not, the couch often ends up being a crash pad for friends and family. That’s why we love KARUP‘s Fresh Futon; not only does it provide a comfy place to relax after the daily grind, but it’s also the perfect bed for out-of-town guests. Plus, unlike the futons you slept on in college, this one’s actually stylish.
Space Saving furniture
BedUP is out to challenge the Murphy bed as the ultimate space-saving sleep solution in increasingly tight city apartments. Designed by French inventors Decadrages, BedUP utilizes the ceiling to house your bulky mattress and frame. The bed retracts from the ceiling when you need it and can suspend above the room as you use the space below.
If you like the idea of a workspace that can be placed out of sight when it’s time to shut down for the day, take a look at this design inspired by the planes of the 1950s. The Blackhawk Secretary is an aviation-themed working station wrapped in a patchwork of aluminum panels and accented with exposed steel screws. On sale at the upscale Restoration Hardware, this office-furniture piece not only shuts down so you forget about work, but you can even move it totally out of sight and into another room.
