There's nothing we love more than a good multi-purpose piece of furniture, as you may have seen with this murphy bed that turns into an office desk, the bean bag bed with a built-in blanket and pillow, or this sofa that has a dog bed built into the armrest. Well, we may have found our new favorite multi-purpose furniture piece, and it's this incredible arm chair that instantly turns into a bed. It's called the fLOP and it was designed by artist Elena Sidorova.
The FLOP by default works as a mustard yellow cushioned arm chair but if you pull the top back you can lay it flat to instantly turn it into a bed that would be perfect for guests staying the night, sleepovers for kids, or just to take a nap at the office. When you flip the arm chair into bed mode, the top of it opens up to reveal a storage area where you can store the mattress of teh bed, along with blankets, pillows, and anything else that you'd like to store.
The multi-purpose arm chair bed is made from wood veneer on the side of the bed along with 100% wool, plus the top of the bed is made with elastic straps to make the bed extra springy and comfy under the mattress. Elena, the Russian designer of the chair/bed also states: "I don't only care about comfort and aesthetics of my projects, but also about their long-lasting usage."
Elena is still looking for a manufacturer for the FLOP chair bed that opens like a book, but you can request a quote and more info on the chair from the site Archello. She states "I am searching for manufacturers right now to produce a whole collection of fLOPs."
"Working on the concept of fLOP I was aiming to create a functional example of furniture with useful characteristics such as: good ergonomics both of seating and sleeping, usage of natural materials such as veneer and 100% wool and the possibility of storage inside the construction."
"In private interiors fLOP will save space if your guest is going to stay for a night. In an office, especially when people have to stay for extra work until late evening or night, fLOP will solve the problem of rest."
