The convertible Doc XL sofa bed designed for small spaces

Finding the right furniture for small spaces I always difficult. The space is small but you can’t just search for miniature furniture because that won’t work. You have to find a solution for that and make the most out the space you have available. Convertible designs are a nice idea that can come in very handy in such cases.

Doc XL in one such convertible piece of furniture. It’s a sofa bed and it was designed by Giulio Manzoni for Clei. It’s part of the Doc Collection. Unlike most sofa beds that just double as a large bed, this one can be transformed into a practical bunk bed. It’s unusual but very practical and it can solve a lot of problems.

The Doc XL sofa bed would make a great addition to small bedroom. This way, during the day you can have a nice sofa that will take little space and will also maximize the usable floor space while also creating a more airy and stylish interior. During the night all you have to do is turn it into a bunk bed. This particular piece of furniture can be a nice choice for guest bedrooms or for the children’s room when they grow older but still have to share a room. The Doc XL sofa bed/bunk bed is provided with a safe ladder that is integrated into the structure. It also acts as a support and a protective barrier.
