Do you want a couch that you can also use as a bed – and that costs less than $200? Check out these 2 grey linen futon sofas. They have modern style, versatile functionality and a low price too!
1. Best Choice Midcentury Linen Tufted Splitback Futon:
First, Best Choice Products makes a grey linen futon that comes with arms. Therefore, it looks more like a contemporary sofa than cheap dorm room furniture.
The neutral grey linen fabric combined with the square chrome legs make it a good fit for an industrial loft, modern office or upscale apartment. Plus, I think the “heather” linen upholstery makes it look more sophisticated and chic.
Besides getting a smart-looking sofa at a bargain price, this futon quickly converts to a bed in seconds. Although convertible futons aren’t known for being the most comfortable sleepers, they provide a convenient option for the occasional guest.
I really like futon sofas because they allow you to forgo buying an extra guest bed. Plus, you don’t have to have a spare bedroom either. If you live in a small apartment, convertible futons make a great furniture addition.
By the way, this model has the “split-back” feature. In other words, both seat backs recline separately. Therefore, you can have 2 different lounging positions simultaneously.
Or, you can lay one half flat while keeping the other side upright. I find this option nice to use for parties where you might need additional seating.

2. DHP’s Grey Linen Futon (without arms)
DHP (Dorel Home Products) also makes a really cool grey linen futon. Besides looking cool, though, there are 3 key reasons why I like this inexpensive convertible futon…
DHP Patterson Premium Linen Futon, in Charcoal Grey
1. How Can You Use the Patterson Linen Futon?
Similar to other DHP convertible futons, the Patterson gives you 3 positions to chose from. Position the seat back upright, reclined in a lounging position or flat as a bed.
In addition, the Patterson has a split-back feature, so you can fold one side down while keeping the other side upright. Even if you don’t use this feature often, it does make the sofa more versatile.
Idea: For example, if you have 2 Patterson futons, you can create a larger sectional-style sofa in numerous ways. This works great if you have a movie room or home theater and want to “construct” addition seating.
2. What Do I Think of the Futon Upholstery?
I really like the contemporary charcoal grey color because it fits in well with virtually any color decor. Plus, the darker (but not too dark) color hides dirt well. You won’t have to worry about getting it dirty every time you sit on it.
The linen fabric combined with the plush tufting give this sofa bed more texture. In fact, this upgraded styling make it look like a more expensive piece of furniture. (Yet it still only costs $350).
This futon works whether you have a contemporary home, modern farmhouse, shabby chick cottage, industrial loft or rustic cabin. In other words, this sofa bed is very versatile in both function and style.
3. How Does the Patterson Futon Rate for Sleeping?
Although this futon only measures about 6 feet in length, it is longer than many convertible futons. Plus, since it doesn’t have armrests, taller people can lay on it more comfortably.
In addition, the mattress has greater cushioning (9 inches). Despite the fact the the upholstery has tufting, the cushions are reported to feel “cloud-like and fluffy”. Sounds like a good night’s sleep to me!
