Space is at a premium these days, particularly if you live in an in-demand city where housing is outrageously expensive. The Sweet Talk and Dream is a tiny piece of furniture that will fit in just about any living space and does the work of several large pieces. The transforming table elegantly unrolls right into a place to lay your head.
Designed by Matali Crasset for Italian furniture company Campeggi, it is a dinette set, with two soft cushion seats and a small table. It is a lounge area with a single seat (or backrest) and room to stretch out.
It can also be used to seat several people when fully unfolded. Remove the table from the middle of the piece and use it to support a radio or small TV for entertainment.
When all the guests are gone and your eyelids are getting heavy, simply move the table to the side and the Sweet Talk and Dreams becomes a bed. Perhaps not the most plush or comfortable bed in the world, but it’s a place to lie your head while you dream of saving up enough money for an apartment with bedrooms.

“A new project by matali crasset who designed a piece of furniture which is not a single element, a sort of star of the habitat, but rather a part of the whole furnishing. Thinking about modularity, flexibility, transformation and solutions which propose different moments in the same place, Sweet talk and dream fo Campeggi is a domestic pad provided with table and seat for talking, relaxing, reading, using notebook or playing. When needed the pad can be opened and turns into a bed while the table becomes a convenient night table.”
