Good Questions: Sleeping Suggestions for Studio Living?

Dear AT,

I am space-challenged and I see - through AT - that there is hope. I live in a studio with my daughter. Over the summer I had a contractor convert my dining room into a bedroom for my daughter. I find myself having shoved all of my furniture in the rest of the room - you know, living room, dining room and my bedroom all in one. I have had my eye on a sofa sleeper from Design Within Reach but can't stomach the $3000 price tag. I tried CB2. When I asked about one of their modern looking sofa sleepers for $1000 the first thing the sales clerk said to me was, "I hope you don't plan on sleeping on this every night." OK, 2 points for honesty...

I debated a Murphy bed (too expensive) and have gone so far as to purchase beautiful sheer silk fabric to hang from my ceiling to separate the bed from the rest of the room, but somehow can't take the plunge. I am without a digital camera and so cannot post photos, but I am looking for ideas.

Thoughtful AT readers, help!



As a starting point, check out AT:NY's top ten list of sleeper sofas. Readers, have any suggestions for Susan??
