a new member of the family….


Over the past six years, I’ve been working on, and perfecting something called Convert-a-Couch.   It’s been a project that has been exhilarating, exhausting, confusing…and rewarding.

The above photo shows our latest version.  This is a sofa bed, 86 inches long, that turns into a bed by just lifting the front and clicking.  It reclines and goes back into the seated position just by lifting the front.

What makes this different than what is out there are two things.  One is that this product is really comfortable, with pocketed coils in the seat and back, something that is only offered on premium products.   Secondly, it ships via UPS in one box; that’s right, UPS.


While it isn’t high fashion, it’s acceptable fashion, something this category has had trouble reaching forever.  And with a price under $500 delivered to your door, it looks pretty good to me.

You will begin to see versions of this product in better fabrics and styling going forward.  I might even have something that we could call fashionable. 

I’ll have a party that day.


  1. Another brilliant concept! Very appealing but I am very curious as to who is 'our' and 'we'? You are being very secretive Tom.

    Also, I like your new format! Is the Header also new as the Hominidae gent in the (almost) Le Penseur (The Thinker) pose reminds me of one of my distant relatives .... joking of course ..... but I never noticed him/her before. Memory lapse perhaps and if your format is NOT new, I will die from total embarrassment. :)

  2. Brenda,

    Again, I can't get anything past you. First of all, it is a new header. I was getting bored with the old one.

    Secretive? I don't think I've ever been called that before. But, I think I know where you're headed. This product will be offered in different design aesthetics from designer to basic. The designer is being developed now, and I believe it will be pretty spiffy, with some help from the designer of course. The basic is what you are looking at.


  3. Re the Header, that's good NEWs! It means my Meds are working....winks.

    Being called secretive isn't so bad Tom and they say "there is a first time for everything. If the mystery aesthetic designer is whom I think it may be, the Convert-a-Couch will undoubtedly be a success and much, much better than any brew of coffee or chocolate found on this planet. :)
