Combining a table and a bed

London-based supplier of genuine ‘authorised original’ mid century furniture, Couch Potato, has announced the launch of its new UK Tablebed.

The new UK Tablebed is a clever piece of furniture which instantly can convert from a table or desk into a bed.

Tablebed’s story began when Dine Renfors the founder and man behind Tablebed wanted to find a way to make the space in his home more efficient.

It became obvious that the two most space-consuming pieces of furniture are the bed and the dining table, and they are never in use at the same time. This gave the idea to Renfor to combine the bed and table into one piece of furniture.

Tablebed can be turned from table to bed in just a few seconds. A safe and easy mechanism allows a single person to smoothly open or close it. The innovative hinges, gas springs and wheels underneath make the transformation from table to bed easy, the durable lock can easily be opened even with one hand moving the lever.

There is also a waterproof sealing strip which keeps the bed dry even if something is spilt on the table.

Commenting on the product Couch Potato said: “These days the home has to cater for many needs; as well as eating, sleeping and relaxing we sometimes need to work, home-school and entertain the kids. But we still only have the same footprint to perform all these functions.

“Tablebed helps to solve these problems by being both a table or desk one minute and a bed the next. The double version perfectly suits the spare room with a decent sized desk or dining table which then cleverly converts to a comfortable bed. The single Tablebed is a brilliant addition for a box room as it means the room can be used as both a home office and guest bedroom.

Tablebed’s unique and functional design has been awarded with the prestigious Design from Finland mark.
