I am fascinated with looking at pictures of those tiny, under 200-sqft houses that some people live in.  While I was looking at information about one of them today, I saw a sofa that would work well for anyone living in a small home without a guest room, or for vacation homes, or maybe even an RV if you could secure it to the floor.  The Proteas Coupe sofa looks like a regular sofa, but it can be converted into bunk beds complete with a ladder and a safety rail for the upper bunk in seconds.  And it’s easy enough that it can be converted by one person.  Although you usually think of bunk beds for children, the Coupe is strong enough that it safely sleeps adults.  The Coupe is available in blue, beige, red, green, or brown fabric.  It’s produced by the Proteas company in Greece, but they can arrange shipping worldwide.  And apparently they are working on finding a US distributor, based on a Facebook conversation one of their representatives was having with some potential US customers who were clamoring for a Coupe.  The sofa costs about $1750 US, but that doesn’t include shipping costs.  If you can’t wait for a US distributor, you can order directly from Proteas now.

  2. The first thing that comes to mind is that this is going to show up in a horror movie. (I haven’t see the Lego movie.) I don’t see how the upper bunk locks in place when elevated. The lock has to be safe before I’d sleep on that thing. Think about kids when they first see any bunk bed.

  3. Actually, I can see how the upper bed locks in place: Second row, far right, you can see the front ladder folded down over the lower bed. So the bed rises up on the scissor-hinge sides, then you fold out the ladder forward, and lock the bed down onto the ladder. (Which attaches in front of the upper bed. Assuming you can’t fold the bed down without folding in the ladder, and the ladder can’t fold outward, it should be fairly secure.
