Swiss Army Piano


Charles Hess patented this combination piano, couch, and bureau in 1866, intending it for hotels and boarding schools in which some bedrooms are used as parlors during daylight hours. Closet F holds the bedclothes, and closet G holds a washbowl, pitcher, and towels.

Supposedly, the piano played just fine with all this furniture packed into it. I don't know if they ever actually built or sold any of these. Link -via Nag on the Lake
