A famous French furniture manufacturer Griffon with over a century and a half of experience designed these cool folding beds for small modern bedrooms/living areas. Actually it all started in the mid ‘60s, when this company turned to manufacturing furniture for urban population. That coincided with French people moving out of the country to metropolises, and into much smaller houses and apartments. Nowadays, the Griffon is still doing it, and has an amazing collection of folding beds, from the minimalist to the extravagant (well, not actually extravagant but they are okay). However, folding a bed into your furniture never looked nice. It was reserved for poor people and student flats. On the other hand, in case you want your space back, these beds are actually worth a look: they even have folding bunk beds for children.
