BEDROOM: Relax on the double bed in your bedroom, hang your clothes in the closet or tuck them away in a full size dresser.

LIVINGROOM: Sit and eat at the expandable table in the living area, or lounge on the double futon while watching television or the flames in the gas fireplace. The futon unfolds to a double bed, for 2 more people to snuggle and sleep. Unfold yourself onto one of the two recliners for a leisurely rest watching cable television.
