Arason Enterprises of Annapolis, Maryland, recently introduced a new line of cabinet beds that is ideal for a studio apartment or for the intermittent houseguest in a smaller room or home office . The new design, dubbed the Studio Sleeper Cabinet Bed, houses a full-length mattress within a stationary, free-standing cabinet. Without any need to take off objects placed on top of the cabinet, the mattress extends on felt-covered, solid wood runners after the front panel is opened. Inside seconds, you have a cozy, real bed. When closed, the cabinet is only 22″ deep and robust enough to support a television on its upper surface. Roomy cabinet drawers also provide storage for pillows and bed linen. The Studio Sleeper Cabinet Bed has a contemporary clean look and comes in the fashionable dark cappuccino finish with faux nickel hardware. It is available in twin and queen bed sizes, and the specially designed folding mattress for the cabinet is included. With the twin priced at $999 and the queen at $1449, the Studio Sleeper Cabinet Bed is the low-cost choice to the Murphy bed. And no installation is required!
The original ZzZ-Chest cabinet bed, introduced by Arason Enterprises four years ago, continues to sell in this economy because of its styling and finish options, and because it is just the thing for those living in smaller homes or vacation properties who need spare sleeping accommodations. Empty nesters, people who have down-sized, or those that want to reclaim space in an existing residence love the ZzZ-Chest because the cabinet requires no installation, takes up little space and converts into a platform bed in seconds. This space-saving bed has storage drawers and a raised sleeping platform – about 18 inches high with the mattress – making it a handy sleeping alternative for most people. It houses an eight-inch thick mattress that is attractive to consumers seeking comfort, and to retailers who want to sell a higher quality mattress in a hide-away bed.
