This chair bed from a well known Dutch designer Mieke Meijer features several functions. Ask the designer what the real influence was behind this the Blend Bed, and she will tell you that it was how people actually slept back in seventeenth century. This designer bed is a one-of-a-kind blend between a chair and a bed, and refers to how one would sleep in a semi-sitting position long ago. It is believed that sleeping laying down was associated with death. The bed has a wooden frame which is fused with a couple of chairs at both sides. The chairs can serve as night tables as well.
