Here's a problem that most of us have faced at some point or another: How do you fit in a bed, a big couch, and a guest room in an apartment? We've touched on it a bit before when we were lamenting on our lack of a guest bedroom, but here's an innovative solution from Danish textile designer/potter Antero Kjaer: a couch/bed made with two twin mattresses, hooks, and foam.

With 3 people living in an apartment that measures roughly 800 square feet, this solution enables the family to configure either a sofa or a double bed. In "Day Mode," the beds are pushed in an L-shape to create a comfy sectional; in "Night Mode," the beds are locked together for a bed ideal for overnight guests. The mattresses have hooks on the legs to ensure that each piece remains locked together in any configuration. The sofa backs also double as a headboard and are made of foam folded over and strapped down.
