We already feel like all we do is work and sleep. To hit the idea home, we have designers like this making "its-a-bed-no-wait-its-a-desk" furniture like this customizable unit...

When it's sprawled out flat, the Basso Floor Mat by Arvin Abadilla is a cushioned mat that—while maybe not ideal—would work just fine for catching a cat nap just like back in the preschool days.

When you shift its pieces around a bit, you have a lazy desk that's perfect for a little multi-screen internet-surfing and TV-watching session in the living room. We're not saying this was invented for fantasy football—but we can't think of a better use for the mini-desk configuration.

It might not be the most practical thing for anyone with real furniture, but it might be just the ticket for a weekend guest to set up shop in the living room of a guest-room-less apartment.
