More Space Place discreetly disguises napping provisions with spy-style Murphy wall beds that fold into a variety of built-in cabinetry. Keep floor space open for impromptu break-dancing tournaments with any of the full-length twin ($2,100+), full ($2,400+), queen ($2,700+), or king ($3,800+) beds, each of which are supported by steel-coil springs and set in motion by a lowering mechanism. Choose from a variety of styles, such as the Jefferson Library Bed system ($5,700+ for a queen), a distinguished sleep sack accompanied by a set of book-bearing shelves. Rooms appear polished and pristine with the Cosmopolitan Panel Bed, which opens horizontally to accommodate narrow spaces and gymnasts who sleep in the splits.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
