Was pleased with the futon for a month until the right-sided cushion collapsed. Seeing as multiple reviewers have had this issue I now regret purchasing especially since Overstock will not let me return nor will they send me a replacement cushion. I am very disappointed and this will be my first and last Overstock furniture purchase! I did not expect such poor quality for the price, but perhaps Overstock just sells seconds?
Purchased this for a playroom near our kids' bedroom. Was shipped via UPS (great - some Overstock furniture is shipped via freight and requires you to be home for a 4-hour window - this one received much easier). It is over 70 lbs, but I was able to shimmy it from my front door to the stairs, down them and to the kids' playroom alone. Another plus is this was a piece of furniture I actually received from this company that I didn't need to address a defective part - actually came in tact!! It was easy-to-assemble: I did it myself while my toddler hung out nearby. The quality is pretty good and better than I expected for the price I paid. It's a nice medium-dark charcoal, kind of tweedy material, and firm but not too firm. It's easy to recline to bed and then re-position to sofa. Warning that when in sofa position, the back part of the sofa exposes the base of the sleeper. It is nicely covered with a black cloth, but a toddler climbing on the back of it would go right through the material and create a hole where the flimsy cloth is sown in. I had it originally floating in the room, but had to put the thing against a wall to avoid my little one destroying the back of it instantly. This is not a full-size sleeper sofa. I'd call it a loveseat size. It's great for us as it leaves space in the playroom for toys, and I envision a kid sleeping on it during a sleepover. Also, it's low enough to the floor in bed position that I'm not worried about a kid falling off of it while sleeping and getting hurt. I've slept on it a couple nights (to be closer to a restless child) and with my head on a pillow that is at the top of one end, my feet hang off the other side if I'm sleeping straight, and I am just under 5'8". That said, I think one adult, maybe up to 6' could sleep at a diagonal on this bed if needed. Depending on preferences it could be comfortable, but might not for you. It's fine for me but my husband probably wouldn't sleep well (there're seams that're noticeable when sleeping unless you were to put a mattress pad on it). But, there's no way we could have an adult couple sleep on it together comfortably and I wouldn't suggest considering this as a guest bed if you anticipate needing it for a couple.
The Sofa bed arrived folded in half and was easily assembled. It looked great for the first 2 weeks. After that the center started to sag. Now after a few months there is hardly any cushioning left in the middle of the sofa, just a indent as if an invisible person is sitting there. I don't know how, considering there is a hard section of the frame that runs down the center and made it completely uncomfortable to sit on. It's saggy, not comfortable and unfortunately a waste of my money.
I really liked this futon once it arrived - great color and style. However, it became pretty bad only in a couple of weeks, as it sagged right away. There is no way you can sit in the middle without hurting yourself :/ - as you you will sit right on the beam.
The sofa delivery was spot on. The instructions to assembly were fairly easy to understand and the whole sofa put together in minutes. Good things: The sofa design and color of the grey fabric perfect. Delivery very good from Overstock. Assembly easy to assemble. Looks good. Not so great: There was a chemical smell that needed to be aired out. You cannot sit on the couch as use as a regular sofa without have dents in the cushions which do not spring back; hence firm cushion (I guess). For this reason, I would not recommend purchasing the sofa. Spend your money wisely on a more expensive original convertible sofa from CB2. You won't be sorry.
Well, I bought this for my small space and guests when they visit. It is uncomfortable to sit on "any" amount of time. They obviously did not assemble at the factory correctly, where the middle meets it is soft and caves in immediately and not returning back to form. These obviously were meant to be the outer corners and "not" the middle. The outer corners are firm ... I thought maybe I put it together in correctly. Nope ... they did. It will serve a purpose until I can purchase a better quality sleeper sofa. When I do I hope I can give it away, yes it's that bad!
I really like this tiny futon when I set it up. I have a small studio and this love seat sized futon was a good size for my space. It was easy to set up too. However, my six yr old niece sat on the couch and when she got up the middle had caved in. I was pretty angry, adults can't stand a chance against this poorly constructed couch if a little girl can't. I'm going to try to fix it myself rather than ship it back , which would be a big pain.
Loved the look of this couch and the funky fold-up design. Fell out of love with it in first 5 minutes when we sat down on the very uncomfortable cushions. Then the cushions compressed in the first week. What a bummer. We are going to try and send it back.
It is a modern piece of furniture and aesthetics are gorgeous, but I slept on it 3 nights when friends were visiting. I am a petite person and the middle section is compressed from only 3 nights sleep. I purchased it for a guest room for kids, it would work for that or just for minimal use but not any frequent use.
I looove this futon! It arrived a day early via UPS in a square box because it folds up into a square ottoman for storage/moving/or even if you just want a nice ottoman that folds out to a bed! It's very stylish and appears well made. The cushions are somewhat firm, which I actually prefer for sleeping. It's like those click-clack futons, where the back segments can either be up, down, half up/down, or even just one side up and one down like a chaise! It was the perfect solution for guests in my home office.
We bought this as we liked the simple, clean, contemporary style. After just two weeks, with one person sleeping on it for 4 days (on a foam topper) it is sagging in one section in the middle. It looks high quality but it absolutely is not. I've bought much cheaper, poor quality futons that have lasted longer. We trusted the reviews on this site and we are now very disappointed. I would not recommend this item.
The fabric looks great. Unfortunately, the black material that runs along the front of the cushion (near the front legs) looks cheap; wish it wasn't there. I'm not sure why the grey fabric just doesnt run all the way down the front of the seat like the left and right part. The back of the couch also looks cheap and wasn't put together evenly. Good thing its up against a wall. The cushion in the middle of the couch also started to sag a bit after a week of sleeping on it. Oddly enough, it actually sleeps pretty well if you're not too tall and its pretty comfortable to sit on. I may have received a lemon. Who knows. But it does look decent.
At first we were very happy with this product, but after only a month of use the middle has started to sag. Now we have a permanent dent in our brand new sofa. The sofa in itself is sturdy and the look matches the picture on the overstock site. But the poorly reinforced cushioning is a major let down. To some up, if the sofa was less expensive I would be happy to live with it. However for this price and the overall quality I wish I would of returned it after opening the package.
This was such a waste of money! At first I was loving it! It was pretty easy to put together and the fabric was perfect! But then I discovered the springs do NOT hold up and the cushions are totally uncomfortable to use as a bed. After our 40lbs dog discovered he liked sitting directly in the middle of the two cushions we found huge indentations that make the sofa look years old! It is easy to lay the back down to make a bed but don't bother as it is the worst night of sleep you will ever have. Not only is it uncomfortable but it is such an unusual shape it is hard to keep the sheets in place. We wanted this for our small extra bedroom that we use as an art room and the occasional 2nd guest room. It is now in a closet in my in-laws house since it is worthless but she won't let me throw it away LOL It has a fantastic look but trust me you can find something better even if for only a few bucks more.
We purchased this futon for our small office. The sofa easily converts to a bed. We had to purchase a memory foam mattress because the futon was too hard to sleep on. With the memory foam mattress guests say the futon is acceptable for short term stays. The size of the futon is a little larger than a twin size bed. Fabric is sturdy. Overall it was a good purchase for what we needed it for.
