Reinvent the guest room! I'm totally in love with this self-standing space saving bed system from Resource Furniture. Made in Italy by Clei, the Nuovoliola '10 features a queen-sized wall bed with a comfortable sofa. Without removing any objects from the shelf, you simply pull a handle to lower the bed to the sleeping position. The shelf becomes the foot of the bed and there's additional storage underneath the sofa seat.
Other systems, like Ulisse, are built-in but just as beautiful. It's available as shown or with a desk, sofa or dining table on the front that ingeniously folds underneath the bed as it opens. www.resourcefurniture.com
