For One Night Stands, Blu Dot Knows Best

In February 2010, research by City Mayors, an international think tank for urban affairs, showed that the mayors of the world’s 25 largest cities are each responsible for more people than most national prime ministers. They went on to state that the largest city in the world, Karachi, has more people than the entire population in Greece, Portugal or Hungary.

In the world of furniture design, there are thousands of designers. Some act like prime ministers, whose effects are felt during post-mass media speeches, but there are also the mayors, who tend to your actual needs, putting thought into the product itself.

Introduced to the world in 2009, the One Night Stand Sleeper Sofa by Blu Dot is a perfect example of a piece that understands our need for concise furniture phrases. Instead of huge, drawn-out speeches, the only dilemma the sleeper sofa has possibly encountered is the scandal within it’s name that would lead one to think there’s an intern involved in its creation… But in non-metaphorical hoopla, Blu Dot is one of furniture design’s global leaders – creating products that work for us locally, but are respected worldwide.

The One Night Stand uses a mid-century design and comes in a grey or rust wool blend. The sofa sleeps on stainless steel legs and is priced at $1799. Measurements of the sofa are 80″ W x 30″ H x 32″D while the seat is 17.5″ H and the bed itself is 80″ W x 11″ H x 62″ D.

Quite the job for an urban-focused furniture mayor to handle, Blu Dot has rallied for yet another beautiful and logical solution that hits home – even if it ends up being for just one great night.
