Murphy's Law

When my friend Emanuel, who works with me, sends me "cool stuff" I always click-through. Why? Because he always sends cool stuff. Resource Furniture is no exception.

I love the creativity and, even more so the successful execution of it, that goes into living in a small space. I have always thought Murphy beds were a smart solution and once I began reviewing this site I thought, "A sofa that converts into a bed would be extremely polite in the guest bedroom." I kept reading about the "fine Italian craftsmanship," and as someone who has a.) been to Italy and b.) done a little retail damage at Prada, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Armani I began to suspect a serious commitment to lira would be on the other side of my quote request.

The good news is I wasn't surprised when the super friendly, very efficient quote was returned a few hours later. Can I afford it? No. I'm pretty sure this set-up costs more than my college education, but I really do love the idea of it and am using it as inspiration. Check out the site: it's very well done and I love how cleverly the space saver section addresses storage and aesthetics.

In the meantime, I'll be over at IKEA, trying to "make it work!"
