Description

'It has two built-in radios, a tea-maker, an electric shaver, a masage machine, bookshelves, a TV set and a tape recorder. By pushing buttons it is posible to open and shut windows, control the lights, speak to every room in the house and make phone calls - all without leaving the warmth of the 500 pound mink coverlets. The Bed, designed for tired big businesmen and their wives, was on show yesterday. Models Jean Clarke (left) and Pat Howden tried it and sighed afterwards: 'just blis.'
