Multitasking bed

Hey, everyone!

Once again, defender Kerys Harrop is at the top today.

Ramble of the Day

There’s a lot to discuss about yesterday’s match, even many hours after full time, so I won’t get in your way. That said, if you’re looking for a quick distraction, let me present you with this bed:

It’s a lot! It requires so much space, and has so many uses. The things I like most are the bookshelves and the speakers; the rest, I have complicated feelings about. The extra seating around the bed makes me feel like it’d be good for entertaining, but I don’t think there are a lot of reasons to entertain at your bed. It would be good for a hotel room that doesn’t really have a table and chairs, though; if you wanted to have a meal in your room instead of at a restaurant. It could also work in an apartment big enough for that bed, but small enough that you can’t have a lot of other furniture.

That said, it isn’t for me. I’m not the staying in bed all day type, but I also don’t like the idea that I might feel enclosed in the bed while I’m laying down because of those bookshelves. I don’t really have an opinion on this bed, but I must commend it for its design — it almost undersells the excess with a very sleek presentation.

tl;dr: If you need a distraction, there’s a multitasking bed for you to look at.
