Modern Sleeper Sofa
The modern sleeper sofa is the ideal space saver when in need of an all-in-one comfortable seating and sleeping arrangement. As a comfortable and multifaceted furnishing, the sleeper sofa comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors. While shopping for a sofa, the options may seem slim, but the reality is there are a variety of characteristics to choose from to complement mid-century, modern, traditional, and contemporary spaces. There are two central functions to consider first when shopping for a sleeper sofa; the fold-down mattress and the pullout mattress. Your availability of space is the ultimate deciding factor of which function you will need.
Sleeper Sofa Functions
Fold Down: A trend on the rise, the fold-down sofa eliminates the need to select a mattress as the sofa cushions double as the bed itself. Traditionally known as a daybed, the fold-down sofa now comes in slim and grandeur sizes with various components that transform into a bed equal to the size of a full, queen, and king.
Pull Out: This sofa bed needs to have enough space for the mattress to be pulled out for use. Foam mattresses were developed to be light and provide an airy sleeping experience. When selecting a mattress for a sleeper sofa, it's best to go with foam. Prepare for its use in advance by layering the bed with light sheets.
Maintenance: A modern sleeper sofa should be cared for in the same manner as a traditional sofa. When selecting the upholstery, pick a fabric that best fits your lifestyle. If the sofa will be used often, genuine leather is a good choice. A leather sofa is comfortable, smooth, easy to clean and ages well. Otherwise, the fabric is an option that offers a more conventional look than leather and tends to come in more designs.
