The Folding Cabinet Bed

Is it a cabinet, or a bed?

What the is this, THING?

The folding cabinet bed, patented on July 14, 1885, was an invention made by Sarah E. Goode. Who was the first woman to receive a U.S. patent. The idea came from her knowing many people who live in small crammed apartments, making a bed more clutter. Many people complained about not having enough room for their furniture. So then, Goode invented a desk with much room for storage, that also folds out to a bed.
