    While nice for small spaces, all the “beds” shown look super-uncomfortable.  Really, you’re spending 1/4 to 1/3 of your life in a bed.  It should be comfortable.  Not to mention the fact that older people would have problems in later life opening/closing said beds.  Or the fact that you have 0 privacy in said bedroom-less homes.

      The beds are counter-balanced and apparently open easily. But good point, they aren’t exactly California Kings, are they?

    I think it’s a great idea and considering how much wasted space is not used in a typical house and how small some apartments can be if you can’t afford a lot per month for rent, so I welcome the idea of space savers like that. I’d like to see a bed, desk, couch combo that comes up from the floor. Also yes, a California King size bed would be preferable over a twin or a queen.
