Modern Sofa-Beds: A Stylish Option for Home or Office

Jun 17th 2015 at 2:07 AM

The sofa-bed occupies a late chapter in the long history of beds, and where weight and transport is concerned, that chapter has been a cumbersome story, until the twenty-first century came along. With advances in design and construction materials, today’s sofa-beds are significantly lighter and easier to open and close. Their primary advantage is that they serve as both beds and couches, depending on your immediate need.

Advances in Style & Utility

Many sofa-beds today are designed to go beyond utility so that they add aesthetic value to a guest-room, living-room or office. They come in a variety of styles, colors and upholstery. The more advanced sofa-beds also have multiple settings or drop-down positions to meet the different needs of different people at different times of the day or night, ending with a straight position to allow anyone to sleep comfortably. Haiku Design’s sofa-bed also offers a backrest that is split in the middle, allowing someone to drop down half of the backrest on either side as he or she chooses. https://www.haikudesigns.com/chill-sleeper-sofa.htm

Advances in Construction

The more progressive and socially-conscious companies today are making and selling sofa-beds made from eco-friendly technology and materials, companies that value sustainability as much or more than profit. These kinds of dual-purpose sofas are often made with Euro-Foam cushions and natural fiberfill. With the old-school open-coil spring-system, whereby springs are interwoven, this caused an uncomfortable sensation or movement of rolling-together or getting bounced around. With advances in orthopedic and ergonomic technology, progressive manufacturers and retailers now offer what’s called a nested-coil-system that prevents transfer of motion. To interpret these terms, each spring is nested in a pocket of material and sewn together, and this inventive coil-system provides firmness as well as comfort, while preventing undesirable transfer of motion from one sitter to another, since every spring responds separately. This also holds true when a person is sleeping on the sofa as a flat surface. A unique eco-foam surrounds this nest of springs or coils, which are then wrapped in durable leather or a Deluxe Linen cover. Finally, this creative design has no off-gassing.

One for the Money, Two for the Show

The Chill Sleeper Sofa from Haiku Designs is a great option for stretching a dollar or a budget, when it comes to furniture, because you’re getting two things for the price of one, which could leave some money left over to add a rice-paper lamp into your environment or incorporate the Matching Chill Chair, which also features the latest eco-friendly technology.
