Of course, if I have more than one person over now, we’ll really have to snuggle, but that’s OK. The new bed will hold three if they’re friendly [EDIT: um, looking at it, really friendly, but it’s doable by snuggly people], and the old futon wouldn’t quite have held four.
Oh, by the way, does anybody want docorion’s old futon and futon frame? It was one of our couches in the living room of the house in Malden, but it works better as a bed than as a couch. Currently disassembled for easy transportation. :-)
