There is much more technology in transforming furniture than the old sofa bed.
There is revolving bed and shelves and telescoping tables.
The cost is higher and the materials are stronger. The cost can be justified because of the high cost of living space easily exceeding $300 per square foot and up to several thousand per square foot in some cities.
Hong Kong $11,000 per square foot. This is followed by Tokyo, London, Paris, Moscow, New York and other cities.
So spending $2000 to $30,000 or more on advanced furniture that lets you use space more efficiently is worth it.
