Take another look at the sentence:

Collapsed on the couch, Nick's relaxation was well earned after the hard day of moving heavy furniture to his new apartment.

Collapsed on the couch, a participle phrase, comes right before relaxation, an illogical target. [Nick's, a possessive noun, functions as an adjective describing relaxation.] People, not relaxation, can rest on the furniture!
