Sleeper sofas have been used for many years. Known by several different terms over time, they have evolved from the heavy, usually uncomfortable beds from the 1950's to the lightweight convertible sofas that are seen everywhere today. They have been called hide-a-beds, sofa sleepers, sleeper sofas, convertible beds, and futons.
Many times sleeper sofas are sought by people who live in small apartments, such as studios or one bedroom apartments. These are the perfect piece of furniture for these smaller living spaces as they do not take up excess room, yet offer the functionality of 2 pieces of furniture. They can become the bed for the tenant of a studio apartment, or be an instant guest bed for people who live in one bedroom apartments.
As they don't have to buy both a sofa AND a bed, they can afford to spend more money buying a better quality sofa bed. With the addition of sleeper sofas, there is no need to buy both pieces of furniture. That is why this is one of the most versatile and useful furniture items anyone can own.
