Vonanda Sofa Bed

Product Details:

  • Materials: Linen Upholstery, Metal Frame, Foam Filling
  • Colors: Chocolate Brown, Dark Gray, Denim Blue, Light Brown, Mustard Yellow, Velvet Black, Velvet Black Berry, Velvet Gray, and Velvet Salmon Pink
  • Dimensions:
    • (ottoman dimensions) 27" L x 37" W x 17" H
    • (bed dimensions) 74" L x 37" W x 17" H

A discreetly designed sofa bed with a wide range of features, the Vonanda is our top pick for a comfortable sleeper for your home.

The Vonanda Sofa Bed is incredibly versatile. It can change into an ottoman, a lounger, a sofa, and even a bed. Its versatility can be quite surprising at first glance due to its relatively modest design.

However, that unobtrusive appearance is a part of Vonanda‘s charm as its understated aesthetic can blend into any living room style. If you want your Vonanda to stand out in your living room, you can choose one of the more vibrant color choices it comes in.

Much care and attention were put into the Vonanda‘s construction, making sure that its frame is solid while its futon mattress has ample softness. This makes it perfect for relaxing during the day or for sleeping.

It’s able to hold a maximum of 440-pounds, which is pretty remarkable. The well-built frame guarantees your safety while ensuring the sofa will last for many years to come.

And despite its overbuilt frame, the Vonanda‘s backrest has five levels of adjustability, letting you recline it to your desired angle.

Overall, the Vonanda is one of the best sofa beds in this review. The only thing that the Vonanda could improve upon would be to replace its standard foam filling with memory foam.


Best for Small Spaces

Convenience Concepts Folding Bed Ottoman

Product Details:

  • Materials: Fabric Upholstery, Metal Frame, Foam Filling
  • Colors: Beige, Blue, Gray, and Taupe
  • Dimensions: 77.25″ L x 28.5″ W x 16.5″ H

Another ottoman with a twist! Convenience Concepts shows their own take on a convertible ottoman, perfect for small spaces.

The Convenience Concepts Folding Bed Ottoman, at first glance, is just a regular Ottoman. However, the real marvel of this convertible sofa lies within.

First things first, this sofa is ideal for small spaces. In fact, it’s probably the most compact convertible sleeper we have ever seen.

Not only that, but it’s also a great spare bed in case you have an extra guest stay the night. And don’t worry about comfort as Convenience Concepts has focused heavily on user experience, using high-quality soft fabric that’s foam-filled to give their sleeper chair ample softness.

Just like with the Vonanda, the Convenience Concepts has a discreet design. The difference, though, is that it hides much of its steel frame in a buttoned slipcover. Upon removing the slipcover, you can fold out the sleeper chair into its single-bed shape.

It may look flimsy at first glance, but taking a closer look, you will notice that the sleeper chair is built sturdily with a metal frame and a wire mesh, helping its durability.

And taking a step back to comment on its modest design, the Convenience Concepts Ottoman is a perfect complement to any living room furniture you already have.


Best for Nursery

Ayoub Convertible Chair

Product Details:

  • Materials: 100% Polyester Upholstery, Foam Filling, Metal Frame
  • Colors: Gray, Blue, Cream, and Teal
  • Dimensions:
    • (chair dimensions) 43" L x 31" W x 36" H
    • (bed dimensions) 74" L x 31" W x 18" H

The Ayoub is a comfortable sofa bed with an easy and safe fold-out design. It’s the perfect convertible chair for a nursery.

The Ayoub is a product from Red Barrel Studio, which we know makes quality furniture as we have covered many of their items in previous articles. Their workmanship shines through in both the Ayoub‘s durability and design.

Built with a sturdy metal frame covered by polyester upholstery, the Ayoub prides itself in its angular and clean appearance. Its design serves to make it look visually attractive and as a way to subtly hide the folding drawer that turns it into a sleeper.

The Polyester upholstery is just one of the reasons we think this sofa is great for a nursery. Polyester boasts hypoallergenic properties as well as being easy to clean, perfect for young ones.

As a sleeper, its foldable half blends almost seamlessly with the rest of the mattress. And with its five adjustable levels on its backrest that you can fully recline, the Ayoub is designed not just as accent furniture but also a comfortable sleeper to boot.

When it comes to converting, the Ayoub is simple to transform into a sleeper. That is because it features wheels that allow for the smooth rollout of the hidden draw.

Its metal snaps are also another thing to note as it can hold up to 300-pounds, guaranteeing the safety of your loved ones while they’re on the Ayoub.

And as a final touch, the Ayoub comes with a single toss pillow to add to its comfortability.


Best for Elderly

Esright Sofa Bed

Product Details:

  • Materials: Linen Fabric Upholstery, High-density Foam Filling, Steel Frame
  • Colors: Light Gray, Navy, and Yellow

    • (chair dimensions) 37.4" L x 46.85" W x 32.09" H
    • (sofa dimensions) 74" L x 37.4" W x 16.93"

The Esright Sofa Bed is a quality convertible that will surely earn you some brownie points from grandma or grandpa.

Design-wise, the Esright is similar to the Ayoub. The critical difference is that the Esright comes with comfortable armrests.

And in our opinion, the Esright Sofa Bed has a more attractive design than the Ayoub. It blends a lot easier in living spaces with its armchair appearance. Like the Ayoub, the Esright even has front wheels on its frame, which allows the sliding bed to be easily pulled out.

The Esright‘s metal frame can hold up 330-pounds, thanks to its use of premium, high-quality materials. With three adjustable recline levels, the Esright is perfect for reading a book, watching TV, or lazy weekend naps.

The Esright uses a breathable fabric upholstery padded with high-density foam to give it ample support without sacrificing softness. It’s an excellent convertible chair for older folks who are looking for a comfortable place to sit and relax on.

The Diophros has an easy to remove linen fabric upholstery, meaning cleaning it won’t be a challenging task. The lines on the upholstery aren’t tufting, but rather they’re just stereo lines made by embroidering the upholstery. The embroidering is purely aesthetic, which can add a stylish flair to your motor home.

The thick, high-density foam padding of the Diophros is to ensures comfort on a daily basis. The foam provides you with ample support and comfortability, especially on long travels.

The Stanton boasts a ton of luxurious features. Not only can it change into a sleeper, but it is also heavily praised by customers for its comfort. Many love the Stanton as a bed to accommodate overnight guests.

However, one gripe that some people seem to have with the Stanton Drew is how tall its backrest is, which can prove a little uncomfortable, especially to taller folks. A simple solution is just to add a few extra toss pillows to the chair.
