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.

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.

We purchased this couch in November 2011, and I've been regretting it ever since. The doorway to our new home was quite narrow, so we were limited in our options for selecting a new couch. This seemed like a good idea to serve the dual function of a regular couch and extra space for overnight guests. It worked better for the second function than it did the first. People didn't seem to mind sleeping on the couch, but as a functional piece of living room furniture, it was awful.
The color shown on the website appears to be a neutral grey-green, but when we received the actual product, the fabric was closer to a pale green-green. Not what we were looking for at all. Additionally, the fabric was shiny and felt extremely cheap and unappealing to the touch. I was so unhappy with it that I wound up ordering a selection of slipcovers within a week of receiving the couch.
The construction of the couch matched the poor quality fabric. I was surprised to see that the couch was made in China, and was anything but surprised to see that the quality of the piece reflected that. Within a few months of purchase, the seat part of the sofa started breaking down- you could feel springs popping and bending, and a deep canyon started to develop in one particular place. As the couch is inexpensive, my expectations weren't that high, but to break down that quickly with standard wear is inexcusable.
I'm giving this thing away after a year and a half of use and encourage everyone else to avoid it.
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.
As some people mentioned, this sofa is SAGE! I so wanted it to be gray, but it is not, so if you have your heart set on something gray, DO NOT BUY IT! However, it happened to match a lot of what I had in the spare bedroom where I placed it. It makes for a nice comfortable place to sit and read. It would be good for guests to relax and watch tv.
It is very easy to convert; not too bad to put together. Again, as others mentioned in their reviews, the directions were pretty lame.
All in all, it isn't bad for a SAGE colored futon couch.
My boyfriend and I have had this futon as our main (and only) couch for over 2 1/2 years now, so I thought I'd offer my two cents. We searched long and hard for a couch that would fit multiple criteria: 1. fit into the budget of two poor grad students 2. be comfortable for everyday use 3. comfortably accommodate overnight guests in our tiny apartment 4. look halfway decent. It wasn't easy to find something that met all of our demands, and overall, we have been really pleased with this couch. We sit on it daily, have had numerous guests of all shapes and sizes spend a night or five on it (it's lovingly referred to as "couch bed" because of its ability to switch seamlessly from couch to bed), spilled various drinks and snacks on it, and it's still going strong. Very recently (maybe 1-2 months ago), two of the springs sprung in it, which is kind of annoying, but also somewhat expected given how much use it gets. Also, we often lay a foam mattress topper on it when people sleep on it, which increases its level of comfort 500% - people have literally told us that they've never slept better on a bed that is not their own. In a pinch, people (myself included) have slept without the mattress pad and it is still sleepable, but the gap down the middle makes it noticeably less comfortable. We plan on continuing to use it until we move, at which point it'll find its new home in the guest room, because honestly, it's still pretty great for what it is and has a solid reputation round these parts.
tl;dr This futon is the best of its kind and definitely worth it if you need multifunctionality out of your couch and don't have a ton of money to spend.
I should have been leary based on reviews. The couch was difficult to assemble because the instructions were so bad and one of the main pieces had a bent steel end that had to be straightened. After assembly, it looked good and was comfortable but only three weeks later it is squeaking and showing signs of wear. Definitely not worth the price if you intend to use it more than once in a while.
Very easy to put together and very comfortable. Make sure you install the lower back support with the Velcro facing down. It does not say that in the instructions I got. Haven't tried the bed yet but it looks like it will be comfortable as well seeing there is no bar running across the middle of the cushions. Overall it's a comfortable couch, that looks to be a comfortable bed and even comes with some nice pillows. The construction seems to be very good (all steel frame) and should last a while. I bought the grey and it's pretty true to the color in the picture.

This couch will be used often, turned into sleeper occasionally. My concern is that over time the seat area will break in more so than the backrest because of weight from people sitting.

How does the back of the couch look? Is the back of the couch flat or does part of the futon stick out? I am asking because the couch will be exposed in the middle of the room. I've seen some futon couches with the folded area sticking out in the back.sarabi05 on Nov 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, sarabi05. The back of this couch has a slipcover-like piece where the cover that holds the pocket coils or mattresses in place slips over the back and attaches to the bottom. This can sometimes leave a slight gap where it can be seen that the back fabric is not completely attached, so it doesn't look entirely like a regular finished sofa. I hope this was helpful to you. Thank you for your interest, and have a lovely day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 11, 2013
