This sofa bed is very stylish. I'd give it 4 stars because it is firm. It is comfortable, but not that comfortable like a real sofa. It would be perfect if the cushion is softer. I'm very satisfied though.
Although there is no folding down into a bed instruction, I managed to figure it out. HERE IS WHAT YOU DO TO FOLD IT DOWN: Stand in front of the sofa or put one knee on it, then bend the seat towards you as far as you can and quickly press it back AWAY from you. THERE YOU GO! Have fun. You welcome.
After reading many of the reviews, we decided to test our fate with this sofa bed. It's a good buy and suits our purposes well. It looks good and is very functional. We just received and assembled it today, so we haven't slept on it yet, but it's comfortable (and firm) to sit in and we expect it will be the same for sleeping. It's bigger than a twin but smaller than a queen, so perhaps it's closest to a double. In terms of assembly, we found other reviewers' comments to be true but would have appreciate more detail. The assembly is pretty straightforward but the instructions are lacking, although they help enough to figure it out. Some valuable tips we learned when assembling: When using the three bars to attach one sofa cushion to the other, the key is getting the holes to line up (and they aren't drilled precisely. You may want to switch the bars around until you find the best alignment, and be sure to have the side with the grooved holes up, so that the screws can function.) Put the three bars in on the same side, lining up the holes, and lightly put the screws in to hold the bars in place. Then attach the other sofa cushion. To get all of the holes lined up so that you can fit in all of the screws, you'll have to pull and tug at the bars, so drop the screws in the rest of the holes but don't tighten them all the way, just enough so that they're in the grooves but so that there will still be some play/wiggle room. Once you have them all in, go back and tighten them all. It's easy to figure out how to move the back of the sofa up (just lift it up, you'll hear it ratchet and it will stop in the various positions.) It's also easy to recline it, but figuring out how took some trial and error. If you're standing behind the sofa (the movable cushion) PUSH the cushion down as far as you can, then pull it back. (It will release and then come back all the way flat.) Alternatively, you can stand in front of the sofa and pull the cushion all the way down, and then push it back flat (falling on top of the sofa as I did in trying to figure it out!) Hope this helps other buyers figure out the assembly quicker than we did. Still, it was pretty easy overall.
I bought this based on the reviews in here.
In the 'couch' position, the seat isn't deep enough for anything resembling comfort, and it's too low to the ground to artificially extend the depth with an ottoman.. (To save anyone else from making the same dumb mistake that I did - that '38 inches deep folded up' applies to the entire thing, not the seat depth.)
If you have long legs, this will be unusable as a couch, period.
As a bed - it's waaaay too hard, unless you're a fan of extra-extra-extra firm mattresses. Or sleeping on the floor. It's actually less comfortable than the sofa-bed-with-back-killing-middle-bar that it replaced.
I suppose you could buy a mattress pad, but then you have to remove it to use the 'seating' position, and if you're buying this to save on space you probably don't have a handy mattress-pad-cupboard.
I would recommend this only if you're furnishing a guest room for guests who you hope don't visit all that often. This would do the trick nicely, in that case.
I purchased this couch because we wanted a futon for its multipurposes. This couch is beautiful and very firm but comfortable. I am short legged and I was able to sit all the way back on the couch and still touch the floor. My husband liked the couch becauses it was firm and allowed you to stand up without having to de-suction yourself from the cushions first. The only draw back is the instructions. It was unclear how you fold and unfold the couch. Thankfully, the couch sounds like a lawn chair when you fold it, which clued me into the mechanics. The only other problem was one of the holes did not line up properly and I used a drill to fix that small problem. I would suggest this item to others and tell them to have two people to put the two halves together. Also a little trick to putting the halves together is to get them together slightly and tip the couchup on its side to let gravity help.
THIS TOOK NO MORE THAN 30MIN TO PUT 2GETHER BY MYSELF. QUALITY LOOKS & FEELS GREAT AND FITS PERFECTLY IN MY LIVING ROOM SINCE ITS NOT HEAVY,BULKY, OR OVERSIZED AS A REGULAR COUCH WOULD BE. ALSO VERY EASY TO MATCH IN THIS LIGHT BUT NEUTRAL COLOR. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS SOFA/BED AND ALTHOUGH MY PURPOSE 4 IT IS MAINLY TO USE AS A SOFA IN A SMALL LIVING ROOM I ALWAYS HAVE THE OPTION OF USING IT AS A BED SHOULD I HAVE UNEXPECTED COMPANY AND WITH NO DOUBT ITS XTRA COMFORTABLE!! (+ I SAW THIS EXACT SAME ONE RETAIL FOR $799.99 SO THIS IS A BARGAIN!)
I purchased this sofa/futon in 2010 for our den and I still love it. It has held up so well and it's great to watch TV in if you put the back rest down one click. I have steam cleaned it twice and it looks as good as new. Not very comfy as a spare bed for guests, but all-n-all a great purchase, even after three years of wear and tear.
PERFECT KIDS ROOM/KIDS AREA COUCH. IT IS FIRM, but with a soft pillow or two its comfortable. It's a bit of a pain because to lay it flat it nedds to be moved away from the wall but other them that it was fine. I had to assemble it with another person because you not to squeeze both sides together to fit in the screws. It looks nice the cost I think it's a great buy.
Assembly was relatively easy however it took a little time aligning the screws on the bottom- a 2 person job for that. A very nice looking sofa that easily transforms into a full size "firm" bed. My 5 year old grand daughter loved sleeping on it! We liked the sofa enough to purchase a second one for extra basement sleeping space- this one only needed 1 person to assemble it. One screw was defective and Overstock promptly contacted manufacturer for a replacement part- thank you Overstock!

Is there a picture guide for me to look describing how to turn this couch into a bed? I wasnt the one who built it originally.devostro on Jul 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
HI devostro, unfortunately we do not have a picture guide to use as a reference. To activate the mechanism you need to pull the top forward as much as possible and then let it recline to the bed position. If this does not work please contact us back so that we can help you further. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 24, 2013
It works essentially like an old fashioned lawn chair. Push forward from the back (as in bending the back of the chair towards the seat) and release. It should fall back on it's own after that.shopforhome on Aug 8, 2013
No matter what position I tried couch could not change positions.cltn53 on Oct 27, 2013

Thank you for your question. This would just require standard house hold tools. I'm sorry we do not offer assembly on this item.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 16, 2013
I bought this years ago and don't recall specifically, but if I am right, you need no tools. The legs screw on. The main couch parts are already made. Easy. And great little couch for the money.melissa333 on Mar 27, 2013
Very easy assemblage. It did not take us more than 30 minutes to unpack and get it together.mezzofrog on Apr 2, 2013
Same here... bought this a while back and it came with tools I believe. It was very simple.sarah78255 on May 9, 2013
Thank you for your inquiry. The foam is 100 percent polyurethane. The mattress is 11.5 inches thick.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 6, 2013
Hi, I just received the sofa. If went together fine. The only problem is the right side (when facing it) will not stay up. It sounds like the mechanism inside of it will not engage at all, it only faintly clicks. While the opposite side clearly clicks into place and engages at different heights. Is there a possible solution for this? I have tried lifting the side as flat and closed as it can go to no avail. Please help.

For the 4 positions click system, put the backrest all the way down, that is position 1 then you can pull it up into 3 reclining positions (the third position will be all the sofa position).overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 24, 2012
