Why sofa beds are the latest trend!
Everyone seems to be wanting one these days and here’s why…
A sofa bed is becoming increasingly popular and there seems to be one in every fashionable home. With good reason! The sofa bed is an amazing invention that plays a secret double role. Not only is it a great aid in optimising space usage but its contemporary avatar is also extremely stylish and incredibly comfortable. There’s no downside! No wonder more and more people are choosing to go in for one!
Who invented the sofa bed?
By common consensus, the grandfather of the modern pull-out sofa bed seems to be Bernard Castro, a Sicilian immigrant to the US. His store, Castro Convertibles, sold over 5 million sleeper sofas before closing in 1993. His designs were distinctive because compared to the other couches available then, his couches retained a premium look and feel.
Why do people love sofa beds?
A sofa bed is a great add to your furniture, whether at home or in the office. It offers you the chance to house a friend who’s a sudden add-on to your house guests. Perhaps you need to host an out-of-town cousin who’s just landed up on a quick business trip and decided to catch up with you. Or maybe your revelry has extended beyond sunrise and everyone just needs some place to crash!
For city dwellers who need to optimise every last inch, it makes perfect sense to have a sofa bed in the living room, the den, the TV room or in the children’s bedroom. It’s also great for families in larger homes, too, where casual guests might need a bed often, but sacrificing an entire bedroom may not make much sense.
Here are a few reasons why today’s urban dweller always welcomes a stylish and elegant option that optimises living space!
1. Superbly designed for space saving
Imagine an excellent, comfy, family-sized sofa that transforms into a large, welcoming bed in a matter of seconds. And perhaps even offers a bit of hidden storage space for blankets and the like. Wow!
Extra sleeping space always comes in handy. For instance, in a one bed flat it might just be very useful to have the extra sleeping space. Perhaps one of you is ill and needs to sleep separately. Or maybe you are simply returning late and don’t want to disturb your partner—it’s much cosier sleeping on a sofa bed than flopping out on just a sofa.
2. Technology that offers both ease and durability
The modern premium sofa bed is a marvel of furniture design and construction. It’s engineered to be easy to slide out and put back in. The hinges, levers and locks are all subjected to rigorous quality control and are of the best quality so that durability and ease of use are beyond question. Absolutely no awkward moments trying to make it work!
3. As comfortable as any bed!
A sofa bed is as much bed as sofa. The cushioning and the mattress used in the best sofa beds are usually exemplary and chosen such that they can withstand regular usage. They are also designed to comfortably support the body at the shoulders, hips, and lower back and provide a good night’s sleep. The idea is to offer a great experience along with the space-saving advantage.
4. Great to house an extra guest
A party reveller who can’t go back home? Maybe he’s missed the last train ride or perhaps she needs to sleep off the celebrations! Whatever the reason, a sofa bed is a welcome add to a bedroom, a living space, a den or even a lobby! Just makes it easy to be hospitable and more caring when it comes to friends and guests! And hey! You can catch an afternoon snooze on it too!
5. Matches Your Style
The modern sofa bed is a great combination of good looks, superb engineering and amazing utility. In fact, you won’t have to compromise on good looks (or any other feature, for that matter) when it comes to a sofa bed. There are plenty of gorgeous options available ranging from modern and transitional to classic styles. They feature stylish silhouettes, premium upholstery and elegant frames that give them timeless appeal. Choose one that matches your taste and fits snugly into your home’s decor. You’ll find it’s a great home-making aid for all time to come!
