Hi there,

It's actually a convertible sleeper sofa from CB2. It's the Flex sofa in "gravel". It's got an innerspring mattress / cushion and is actually really comfortable. They still sell them. Check it out at:

Happy decorating!

Hi there,

The desk and shelves were custom made to the dimensions of the room. We worked with Paul Munson of Munson Joinery in Oakland, CA to execute our design.

Hi there,

For perspective, this room was originally a typically sized bedroom - about 10' x 12. If you've got a spare bedroom, you can easily convert it into room home office.

Happy Decorating,

I like that it is homely. It has enough room for two which is what I need and has a medium sofa bed for reading and having guests too. I like how space is saved by putting storage and shelving above the desk units.
