Create An Instant Living Room Sofa

Spotted on The Coveteur: the use of camp cots as additional seating in the 1960s-inspired the Parisian loft of fashion design couple Jerome Dreyfuss and Isabel Marant. Recreate the look with the following pieces.

Above: Dreyfuss’ colorful and bohemian loft. On The Coveteur, he says: “For my house, I always have been inspired by California. It is filled with pieces from the 60′s and books about architecture.”

Above: A well-priced and sturdy option is the canvas and wood Maine Heritage Cot by Byer of Maine; $99.50.

Above: Any army blanket will add warmth and texture; here the Rothco Olive Drab Wool Blanket can be sourced from Camping Survival; $19.99

Above: For color, Crate & Barrel’s Brinkley 18-Inch Pillows are made from double-ply, hand-dyed cotton in a variety of shades like moss, mustard, denim, and red; $24.95.
