compete with robot furniture – Two rooms in one for less

It’s easy to compete with robot furniture

Designers and engineers are working on user-friendly ways to live in smaller spaces. Robotic furniture that moves with gestures is now being created. We can see from this video that the results are impressive. Yet they are likely to be costly, at least in the beginning. For now, there are easier ways to create flexible, multiple purpose rooms that are simple to reconfigure at a very low price.

Living room and bedroom in one that you can take camping

Pretty soon, engineered mobile systems developed at MIT will bring this new furniture technolgy into our homes. But until then, we can benefit by the ideas of multi-use space saving flexibility. Here are my ideas on a simple way to achieve this goal and provide almost the same flexibility at MUCH LOWER PRICE.

Behold, this queen bed frame is so sturdy it can support us

It only costs $97 on Amazon Prime and can be deconstructed into 2 31 x 75 inch flat and lightweight pieces that are easy to store and to move through the narrowest hallways.

What’s better is – the queen frame can be separated into 2 cot sized beds or 2 backless sofa bases. Just add a nice foam mattress and cover and you can have:

  • an L shaped sofa
  • 2 narrow full length twin beds
  • a queen size bed
  • 2 backless chairs

That’s not all! With this mattress (which I have not yet tried) the folded mode allows you to create a backless seat. You can also take it on a camping trip for luxurious comfort.

AMAZING! Total price for bed frames, 2 mattresses and delivery on Amazon Prime is $300 (queen (2 31 ix 75 inch) frame + 2 33 x 75 inch fold up mattresses). The biggest bonus is that you can make one room into two with no construction what so ever.

BTW – I am not selling this furniture.
