Different Types of Sleeper Sofas

Expecting houseguests for the holidays? Here are four different ways to add functional sleeping space to your home that will match the rest of your design style and amaze your guests!

Sleeper Sofas

Sofa Sleeper

The sleeper sofa has been a mainstay of the furniture industry ever since its creation more than 80 years ago. Inventor Bernard Castro is credited for the design. His unique concept concealed the pullout mattress and frame inside the sofa while retaining the aesthetic appeal of high-end furniture. 

Today, features of the sleeper sofa have enhanced folding mechanisms with better hinges and more comfortable options for mattresses like memory foam. Sleepers also come in other size choices like the twin sleeper that is available in a loveseat or a sleeper chair

Sleepers also come in several style options which carry on Castro’s vision of providing a sleeper without compromising on design
. You can choose from leather or fabric upholstery and modern to contemporary designs.

Key Features

  •       Aesthetic appeal
  •       Memory foam mattress options
  •       Enhanced folding mechanisms


Modern Sleeper Sofas

The versatility of these pieces allows them to come in many styles and sizes, making them ideal for any space large or small.
