I am no longer a couch person. It is quite uncomfortable trying to rest on it while watching the telly. After a hard days work you need to unwind on something more comfy, that will let you doze off without you getting up with a sore neck! The new 5th Ave Platform Bed from Manhattan Loft is a dream. Very contemporary and chic, it fits into any uber-kitsch kind of house. It has interchangeable arms and backs and can be transformed into a lounger. There are channels running through on its perimeter where backs and arms may be inserted to create your own style. You could add a tray too. The legs and trays come in a choice of natural, black, or espresso wood colors. The leather choices come in various grades and colors.
