    We r thinking of getting a sofa bed for out living room for when people stay over.

    Can anyone recommend some places that sell comfy but also nice looking ones as it has to be used as our everyday sofa too.

    Thank u xx

    Nation to Nation, All the world must come together. Face the problems that we see, then maybe somehow we can work it out.
    I asked my neighbour for a favour she said later. What has come of all the people have we lost love of what its about?
    I have to find my piece cos noone seems to let me be. False prophets, cry of doom, what are the posibilities?
    I told my brother there'll be problems times and tears for fears. We must live each day like its the last.


    Michael, u r my life. I love u so much.

    Well, I can't recommend a brand for the UK, but having had one for years (it's still in the upstairs office for guests) I can tell you to be certain that it's comfortable to SIT on as well as supportive to sleep on. You'll want the mattress to be as thick as possible, and sewn without buttons.

    They are very heavy, so be sure to buy one you can handle (moving in/out and placing in the home).

    If the fabric isn't protected, pay the extra to get it fabric guarded. We did and it saved our upholstery time and again.

    It's a good idea to have one that has built in wheels (ours does, with locks so they don't roll when you don't want it to) to facilitate moving it around.

    Hope that helps a bit!

    Hmmm. i'd probably recommend a blow up mattress instead. A sofa isn't really supposed to be a bed aswell.

    Some are lovely and can be very usefull if the sofa bed is say in a spare bedroom you watch tv in from time to time but not as your everyday one.

    We had one from Oakridge they are online the matress was thick and comfy but hardly got used. It does limit what you can buy style wise etc.

    i have one in my lounge from m&s and it's very comfortable. We got the thicker mattress for it and it's very comfy as a sofa too. It wasn't too much either as it was in the sale

    We had one from Marks & Spencer - lovely to look at and sit on but the bed could only be used for occasional use as it's not very thick
