I liked the "Coffee table and four cushions" picture. I'm trying to imagine myself using that concept for additional things, too...

Yes, LoveOurPlanet, the last one (video) is definitely a seller. I have the same reservations with the Computer-Desk Bed as it might not be able to support a fully-grown or a heavier person. Thanks!

That last video is amazing! Not sure I'd want my desk full of homework hanging over me all night while I'm sleeping from a symbolic, feng shui perspective, but some of those other ideas are really cool.
