Sofa beds have long been known as an option for those who are living in small spaces but are keen to have guests stay over. But, despite their practicality, many people don’t ever consider actually buying them. When they think ‘sofa bed’, images of frumpy styles and dated patterns immediately come to mind.
But in recent years, all that’s changed. Sofa beds have had a makeover and many are now so chic and couch-like, you’d never even guess they moonlight as a bed. And now, well-known mattress-in-a-box brand Emma Sleep has entered the chat, releasing Emma Sofa Bed, which it promises can go from sofa to bed in under two minutes, no tools required.
It’s quick and easy to transform and comes in a light grey that’s neutral enough to provide a good base to work around, décor-wise, in your lounge room, but also dark enough to not have to constantly worry about stains.
The sofa bed also features cushions that make both sitting and sleeping equally comfy, as well as two extra waist pillows. Helpfully, each armrest has a hidden compartment that you can use to store things. Finally, and importantly in today’s day and age when we’re continually upgrading our furniture, the sofa’s not only made to last but also uses sustainably-sourced materials.
The fabric used is made from recycled plastic. It’s padded with CertiPUR-US certified foam, meaning it’s crafted with non-toxic materials, and reinforced with FSC-certified wood, which means it meets the highest environmental and social standards set by the FSC.
Also, if you’re not ready to fully commit to buying it, Emma Sleep will let you try it for 100 days. They’ll deliver it for free, and, if you’re not keen to purchase it in the end, will even come to pick it up at no extra charge, too. If you do choose to buy it, though, it comes with a five-year guarantee, which ensures longevity and quality.
From June 20, 2023 ’til July 3, Emma Sleep is doing up to 55% off its most popular ranges for the end of financial year sales. You can shop the sofa bed at $1,799.55, a whopping discount from the original price of $3,999.
