Any Experience with Eileen Gray Daybed As a Bed?

Good Questions

Q: I stumbled across this wonderful Eileen Gray Daybed picture on Pinterest and thought "That is for me!". The problem is, I need it not as a daybed, but as a day and NIGHT bed. Yes, the old studio apartment problem. Does anyone use this (or more importantly, an affordable reproduction made by a manufacturer at a reduced price — lowest I saw was $899.99) for sleeping at night? How firm (or soft) is it? Do the buttons hurt your… posterior?
