Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be prepared for anything?  When family and friends drop in for an unannounced overnight stay, your sofa sleeper offers the ideal solution.  A sofa fitted with a sleeper mattress quickly allows you to transform any space into a guest bedroom.  They are functional, fantastic space-savers for apartments, living rooms, and guest bedrooms.

Sofa sleepers have been a common furniture feature in many homes since the mid-twentieth century.  Hideaway beds date back to the innovative era of the late 1800’s, while folding beds were patented and mass produced by the US Army near that time as well.  A pivot bed that receded into the wall was developed shortly thereafter, and then in the early 1930’s the first sofa sleeper that hid a mattress inside a couch frame was produced.  The sofa sleeper has evolved into a fashionable and customizable home furniture feature.  Pictured below are sofa sleepers in styles from Traditional, Contemporary, Casual, and Transitional, but you can also choose from nearly 200 sofa sleepers available through Zak’s Fine Furniture.
