One thing to note: THIS COUCH IS GRAY, as pictured. We were not picky; after all, we're ordering a couch online that we never touched or sat on. We agreed before ordering that gray or sage green were both acceptable. It is a medium "steely" heather tone. The micro fiber is soft to the touch and appears it will be easy to clean.
It shipped in one box, which was heavy, but manageable. The couch was super easy to assemble. It took less than an hour with one person. The directions were easy to follow, and it had a minimal number of pieces.
We were worried about ordering a "futon" because they are so awful, and we thought we had finally out-grown that stage in our lives. With traditional futons, the mattress always slides around, it's lumpy, and it looks like a college dorm room. That said, we needed a sleeper sofa, and nicer fold out couch beds were out of our budget.
The design for this sleeper is impressive. Two coiled mattresses fit inside of a pocketed "cushion" cover. When it is upright, it looks and feels like 6 individual cushions. We were concerned that when folded down, you would feel the gap between the two mattresses (or roll to the center). This was not the case. The padded cover conceals the mattresses very well. The sleeping surface was seamless and comfortable. It fits full size sheets, and fits two adults comfortably; but keep in mind, it is a full size bed, not a queen. This is not for two fat people.
The couch, in its upright position, will accommodate 3 adults nicely, and that isn't squished or awkward. (its comes with a third, reclining position that seems pointless). An adult can lay on the couch and fit nicely; perfect for dozing while watching tv. The arm rests are a nice height and are comfortable to lean on or place a pillow against for napping. They also look nice as the "head/foot boards" of the sleeper.
Considering that this is our primary couch, and not for a guest room or den; we are a bit concerned about how the padding will hold up with heavy use over time. The mattresses/cushions are comfortable and kind of plush. If they were more firm, I wouldn't be as concerned. We have only had the couch for a few days and love it; so only time will tell how it holds up to daily use.
I would recommend this sleeper to others. The quality is more than acceptable for the price, and it is comfortable as a couch and a sleeper. It looks like a couch, and not a futon.
One thing to note: All four feet were slightly dinged up, but it is easily over-looked.
I needed a new couch when I recently moved, but also wanted something my friends could crash on in comfort when they stopped by. I figured a futon would be the way to go, but they don't always make the best couches in terms of looks/comfort and my friends aren't here that much...
So I almost bought a standard couch. I'm so glad I found this item. It looks like a high-end microfiber couch once assembled (more on that in a moment) and is extremely comfortable. Probably more-so than most other sofas. The color matches the "O" photo, it's gray with a very light hint of Sage.
As a couch, I'm very impressed with the style and comfort. Nobody could ever guess that it folds into a bed. The seating and back surface is "inner spring" instead of pressed material (like a futon) so it's a bit more comfortable. When folded into a bed, it's like sleeping on a...well, a standard bed. FAR better than a pull out couch and even better than a futon.
The only downside is that it is a royal pain to put together. The instructions aren't too bad, but they aren't great. The most difficult part is putting the cover on properly and the instructions are worthless for that. I put this together by myself and it didn't take long. If this is the only issue I can find to be negative about it must be a great product. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for style, comfort and price.

Pros: Couch looks nice, modern. Color is a nice neutral gray with a slight green tint to it. Cant tell its a futon. Lots of seating area (im 6''2" and can lay down on it comfortably unlike my prior full futon).
Cons: Microfiber cover stretches easily leaving sags and bubbles. Some of the hardware is less than ideal quality: Some of the screw threads stripped as i was assembling.
Very nice couch that allows for extra sleeping space when company comes over. The unit is quite simple to put together; it says you need two people, but it is manageable alone. The cushions are springs covered in 1-2 inches of padding. This is not the most comfortable couch in the world, but decent for the price range and has the space saving benefit of being a nice guest bed.
First thank you to all those who wrote reviews previously, it completely helped with us purchasing this couch.
Color - Yes, the color says sage green. When I opened the box downstairs, it actually looked sage green, my downstairs has lots of earth tones and the green showed. I was worried about how 'green' it looked and it was going in my daughter's room. When we brought the pieces upstairs to her purple room, all traces of green were gone and the sofa looks gray. I would say if you are putting this in a room with earthy colors, it will look sage, if it's completely different colors, it will look gray as others have stated.
Assembly - Instructions and all pieces were included. The instructions were ok. We managed to assemble in about 40 minutes, not too bad. They include all the tools so you don't even need your own screwdriver!
Quality - The material is a very soft microfiber, hopefully it will hold up but the material seems nice. I don't care for the pillow pattern. This is NOT like the futons of old. We have one of those saggy couch futons from the 90s and this is nothing like that. It has a super thick coil innerspring which makes it feel very much like upholstered furniture. The case was easy to put on but we didn't let the compressed futon part expand. The sofa looks and feels like a sofa, not a futon. Some of those old futons had strange angles on the seats, this is angled like a sofa.
Ease of conversion - This was the part I had to see to believe. Our old futon take two people to put down, more out from the wall and convert. This is literally a lift and click. It's effortless and you don't need to move away from the wall. I have to say the design is excellent and the comfort is amazing. Feels like a bed.
Value - For the price of this sofa, can't beat it. We were at IKEA looking for a sofa and the one that was similar in look was going to cost more, wouldn't convert to a bed and wouldn't have shipped for free either. The only reason we didn't get it was because they were out of stock. It was a blessing in disguise, we have a better looking sofa, converts to a bed, got shipped to my door for free. We ordered late Saturday night and it was here on Tues, I think it shipped from SoCal though which is where we are.
I recommend this sofa.

It serves the purpose. I had a problem in the beginning because I received 2 left arms, but the customer care at Overstock sent me the right arm rest after 2 weeks. It was a bit of inconvenience, but I'm happy with their effort and feels much more comfortable shopping at Overstock now, even a couch.
Once the couch assembled, it looks nice, and it works well as a bed and it converts easily. It's worth the money.

While shopping for a futon sofa my biggest concern was about the space where the two halves meet. Who could get a confortable sleep if there was a gap in the middle of the mattress? Happily there is none when the futon is folded flat. And the mattresses have coil springs giving them a thickness and "give" that was also unexpected. My memories of fold-out sofas were of a thin mattress and knowing that it was only one night's discomfort.
The shipping box is large and heavy, but the contents were well protected. Assembly was straightforward. I had no issues insertng the matresses into their respective covers--and though there was a caution that they would be wrinkled for awhile I had none. The fabric is nice to sit on--neither slippery or stiff.
The seat back has two upright positions--straight up (normal) and another that is at a angle--good for reclining. The mechanism for configuring the bed is fairly easy to operate--and quick. When converted into a bed the mattress extends about 5 inches further back than the sofa--so the sofa can be placed close to a wall but not against it.

My number one complaint is that the cushions are too springy. After a week you start to feel th springs when you shift your body. You can definitely find a more comfortable couch/sofa. On the plus side; set up is not difficult, took about 45 minutes and the convertable feature is convienent and easy to use.

This couch looks wonderful, is easy to put together (about an hour), and is very comfortable. When all 3 of us sat down (with a combined weight of about 700lbs) it didn't even make a sound so it is obviously very sturdy. I hope it holds up over time, but since it will only be used occasionally it should be fine.
