The Best Furniture In Which To Get Your Nap On

For as long as I can remember my Grandmother had the same sofa in her living room. It was gold velvet with large oriental designs on it. Even though I hadn't gained my design chops yet, I still knew it wasn't exactly attractive, but that didn't matter because to this day, it's still the best nap couch ever. You laugh, but this is important people!

Now this might sound like a silly post to some, but napping is serious business. For many (especially those without a bed they truly love), naps provide a better recharge of the batteries than a good night's sleep does. It doesn't matter if that happens lying down, it could be in an old chair, your parent's recliner, or that thrifted love seat your roommate insisted on bringing home.

For many years it was the gold sofa I spoke of previously, but more recently the best spot in the house for a small snooze has been a sofa found on the curb during a large item pick up day in the suburbs of my town. The cushions are down and all ability to stay awake is lost the second you sit down. Where do you get your nap on at? Let us know below!
