The Bean2Bed operates like a bean bag chair, but it's filled with foam instead of "beans." And that foam is in the shape of a mattress, stuffed into a bag for sitting, but ready to pop into a bed for sleeping.

The removable, washable cover is faux suede, and we're wondering if the Bean2Bed does justice to either of its functions, or suffers from splitting the difference. We may never know, since right now the Bean2Bed is only available for shipping in Europe, for £225 here. But it's an interesting concept.
