Chesterfield Sofa Bed – Pros & Cons (Is it a Good Deal?)

Do you wan the classic, elegant style of a Chesterfield couch – with the functionality of a sofa sleeper? Well, this Chesterfield Sofa Bed gives you the best of both worlds.

Green Velvet Chesterfield Sofa Bed Futon

You get the versatile, multi-functional design of a futon, plus the sophisticated designer look of vintage style furniture. Not to mention, you can save a bunch of money over an Italian leather Chesterfield sofa.

Vintage Tufting and Detailing on Chesterfield Couch

As you can see, this new sofa has that elegant, vintage look. You get plush velvet fabric with Victorian style wooden legs without having to search through antique stores.

The luxurious rolled arms not only look sophisticated and classy, they feel comfortable too. Plus, the diamond tufted design and button detailing give this sofa a level of chic, refined elegance.

In fact, most people would never suspect it to be a futon sofa sleeper. Not to mention, you can fold this futon flat into a bed in a matter of seconds.

Note: The manufacturer added “Pocket Coils” within the seat, making it extra comfortable and supportive. Most futons don’t offer this feature.

Can This Futon Sleep 2 People?

When laid flat, the width of this futon measures slightly larger than a twin mattress. Therefore, I wouldn’t consider it big enough to sleep 2 adults.

Abby Vinage Style Daybed with Button Tufting, Velvet Fabric and Nailhead Trim

If you need a double bed or a sofabed that can sleep 2 people, I suggest checking out the Abby Daybed with pull-out trundle.

It has vintage style button-tufting, nailhead trim and a soft velvet fabric in dark charcoal grey.

Although it’s not a Chesterfield sofa futon, it’s fairly close in style to a Chesterfield couch with pull out bed. I fact, you might even like this furniture better.

How to Use a Tall Sofa Table Behind Your Futon:

Back Side of Chesterfield Futon - with Finished Fabric Cover

The backside of this convertible futon is finished in the same green velvet material. However, the back sits at an angle (like a futon), making it look not-so-elegant.

If you plan on putting your Chesterfield against a wall, this side will remain hidden, and you probably won’t care. No one will see it.

On the other hand, if you want to set up your sofa in the middle of a room, this may cause an issue.

Long Sofa Table to Place Behind Futon to Hide Angled Seatback

I found an easy solution to this problem though. Simply push a tall, narrow entryway/sofa table up against the back of your sofa.

The table will cleverly hide the fact that your Chesterfield sofa is a futon, Plus, you gain additional storage space and an area to display photos or other decor.

I personally like this sofa table because it has the perfect dimensions for this sofa (64″ long x 30″ tall). Therefore, it tabletop sits lower than the seat back, yet it covers the majority of angled backside.

Plus, this aged-looking console has 4 drawers for storage. You can even get this table in 4 different colors (Antique Grey, Antique White, Blue or Retro Black).
