One of the problems with spending money on a regular sofa is finding out by trial and error that you should have bought a sofa bed instead. Although I didn’t purchase my sofa bed online, I can be rest assured that I have an extra spot for an emergency visitor or even for myself if need be. Seating pieces in this category are heavier to deal with, but they make up for it in their practical versatility. Two of the choices online worth considering come from the same company, Handy Living.
Handy Living Cabo Living Room Convert-A-Couch Chenille Sleeper Sofa in Black
The Convert-a-couch ( great name ! ) comes in a black chenille fabric for people who like dark upholstery. Of course, not everyone will be able to have a dark chenille sofa; especially people that own pets who shed. That is something to consider and a real downside to dark fabrics. If you have long-haired pets you know how hard it is to keep furniture looking lint-free. This one comes with the following details:
- Comes with unique track arms to make for easy and smooth opening or closing
- Opens out into a full-size bed
- Enough room for the comfort of two people
- Comfortable seat cushions and no back bar that can irritate sitters
- Durable black microfiber upholstery
- The style is great for the price, It can be hard to find a sofa bed this modern in design as affordable.
Cons: The dark color and microfiber upholstery may become a lint trap for pet owners.
Pros: Clean lines make it possible to work with many types of decor, slipcovers for this style are easy to find.
Handy Living Cabo Convert-A-Couch Microfiber Sleeper In Khaki With 2 Mocha Circles Throw Pillows
One of the most popular colors of couch upholstery these days runs in the natural, but soil-hiding shades of pebble, sand, cocoa and khaki. They are neutral shades that work with a lot of different room themes. When it comes to choosing a color that both you and your mate can live with, nature-inspired shades are usually the common middle ground.
If you know that a black sleeper is not going to work for either your decorating theme or your lifestyle, consider this model in khaki. It has the same features as the one above.
These products are nothing like the traditional sofa beds of the past. Actually, they are not quite a sofa bed more than they are a sofa that converts into a bed. The picture shows it better than I can explain.
I could see this design working really well in for dorm rooms, studio apartments and tiny efficiencies. The sleeping surface is the seating surface which may be the only negative. Using protective sheets is a good idea. The Mocha Circle Pillows may or may not be your style, but they are free with purchase.
Cons: Side arms are low which may or may not be comfortable for some.
Pros: Looks like a great multitasking furniture product that can be used in many different ways .
