Compact living is one of our favorite topics. Making efficient use of space is the best way to maximize your living quarters – it helps you conserve resources, keep your life organized, and enjoy clutter-free surroundings. Bonbon Trading‘s got compact down pat with their Doc sofa/bunk bed unit. The single couch swings easily into two separate beds for guests to rest their weary heads. That’s smart furniture.
Bonbon’s materials are not quite as smart as their designs. Though ease of use and economy of space bode well for an efficient lifestyle, Bonbon might do well to adopt some more sustainable materials. We certainly hope green thinking infuses Bonbon, because their modern rendition of the classic Murphy bed — and new incarnations of the “wall bed” style — are downright brilliant. Add a Convertible Kitchenette from Vestal Design and a Living Unit by Andrea Zittel, and you could break records for spatial efficiency.
