A couple weeks ago Kelly and I bought ourselves an ottoman that turns into a (very low, very narrow) bed that also transforms into a coffeetable. It’s just like Clark Kent, only more vulnerable to cat hair. It came from Vancouver Special, and they call it Bingo.
So far I have succeeded at sleeping, sitting, and propping my legs on it. It seems to work exactly as advertised, and solves a few thorny domestic challenges I was having, and seems to have been a good all-round purchase.
Also, it allows me to toast my legs by the fire while poking at my various iGadgetry as they lie flat on the floor.
