Natuzzi Puts a Modern Spin on Its Leather Sleeper Sofa

A sleeper sofa is probably one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you will ever own. Consider: one modern sofa bed serves as two distinct pieces of furniture in half the space. They might have a bad reputation for being noisy, uncomfortable, and even ugly, but those days are long gone. Natuzzi Editions has put a modern spin with its new line of leather sleeper sofas.

Modern sleeper sofas blend so well into their surroundings, that your guests may be shocked to discover that not only does the sofa convert into a bed, but a comfortable one at that. If you need to turn your living room, spare room or office into a part time guest room, a sleeper sofa may be your best option. The Natuzzi Editions sleeper sofa, with its sleek leather upholstery, gives you a fresh look and modern convenience. Below are a few more tips to help you find the sleeper sofa that will effortlessly transition from day to night.

What Type of Mattress Should I Look for in a Convertible Sofa?

The first thing to consider is whether a fold-down or pull-out model will work for you. A fold-down model could be considered one step up from a futon—the cushions are in fact the mattress. In a pull-out model, the mattress and cushions are separate. Then, consider the sofa’s primary use—sitting or sleeping? If you envision that it will be used more as a sofa, the cushions become more important. And correspondingly, if you think it will be used as a bed often, the mattress should be a top priority.

What Do I Look for in a Frame for a Sofa Bed?

Frame quality is an important consideration. You’ll want choose something that will last long, like steel, hardwood, or something equally durable. The Natuzzi Editions sleeper sofa uses a combination of solid woods, OSB, plywood, particle board with a Masonite wrap and foam covering to produce an easily adaptable style.

Also keep safety in mind, and watch out for pieces that might scratch you or snag the bedding. Size up the space you will have to navigate when the bed is open, and downsize if needed. In addition consider the following:

  • Support Bar: Check the support bar, especially on a pull-out bed. When attached with coils, the bar gives with pressure, so that it doesn’t dig into the sleeper’s body.

  • Ease of Use: Test out the sofa bed to make sure you can easily open it or fold it down. You and your guests will be frustrated if they are ready to retire and they cannot pull out the mattress. In addition, look for a frame that locks when the sleeper is in position, you or your guests wouldn’t want to accidentally be folded up in the sofa when rolling over in the dead of the night.

  • Upholstery: This is when you think more about your sleeper sofa’s use as a couch more than a bed. Choose a fabric, such as leather, that is durable but comfortable, unless the sleeper sofa will be somewhere that doesn’t get a lot of use, such as an office, where you can use a more delicate fabric, like cotton, if you are trying to achieve a particular look.

The Natuzzi Editions leather sleeper sofa will give you the flexibility of a 2-in-1 piece, but even better, your guests will look forward to using it—they can easily pull the sofa out and get a restful night’s sleep. See more from Natuzzi Editions at Baer’s Furniture on Houzz!
