This singular piece of flowing, multi-functional furniture is aptly titled ‘Blend’ for its unique and fluid combination of other typical bedroom furniture designs. A chair-like extension of the conventional wooden bed headboard makes it look like a combination of these two typical elements, but also function like a bedside bench, table or nightstand.
Here it is: your all in one space-saving, fused-furniture design. The rather uniform and ordinary-looking aesthetic of the object reinforces the strange combination of chair- and bed-frame parts. As opposed to your typical convertible, transforming or fold-out furniture, this is a simple-looking set of designs made into a unique new hybrid.
Many people already use chairs as nighttime tables – this piece by Dutch furniture and industrial designer Mieke Meijer just reinforces such habits. Besides, it also makes a nice transitional seating space for those of us who have a somewhat tough time getting up in the morning or somewhere to sit and take off your shoes at night.
