Holden Caulfield?

Looks like a stretcher in the rye to me.

Still available

From Herman Miller, and for the bargain price of $7500. Good lord.

Some Like It Cot

Ray and Charles Eames originally designed this chaise for Billy Wilder's office so he could catnap. They designed it so he would naturally fold his arms when laying down. Then, as he fell asleep, his arms would drop, and he'd wake up from his short nap.

It's still available at Herman Miller, if you want to sleep, but not too long.
