Grey Modern Sofa Sleeper with Tufted Cushions and Arms

As you can see, it comes in a fashionable charcoal shade of grey. Plus, you can get this convertible futon in an elegant dark blue as well.

These sophisticated color options, combined with the soft microfiber upholstery really up-levels this furniture. In fact, many people would not suspect it to be a futon.

In other words, you can add some decorator style to your home without having to spend lots of money.

Not to mention, the sofa back reclines with a simple push. You can even recline partially back and use this furniture as a lounger.

Plus, the split-back design allows you to move both halves separately for more versatile seating. For such a budget-friendly piece of furniture, you can use it in various ways.

Finished Back Side of Futon Sofa & Adding Console Tables:

How to Use a Tall, Narrow Console Table to Hide Folding Back of Futon SofaThe back side of this futon has a finished look using the same fabric as the cushions. However, it shows the folding frame. Therefore, you may want to position this sofa against a wall instead of in the middle of a room.

That said, what if you need to place the furniture where the back will be exposed? Then, I suggest using a couple of tall, narrow console tables along the backside.

This strategy can cleverly disguise the folding futon back. Not to mention, it can add storage and act as a display case at the same time.

(By the way, the top of the console table measures 2″ shorter than the sofa back, so it fits perfectly.)

Is this Convertible Futon Good for Sleeping?

Honestly, most convertible futons will have a firm, hard feel to them when compared to a mattress. It’s the trade-off you get to avoid having a squishy couch that doesn’t hold its shape.

In addition, the tufted upholstery design results in an un-even sleeping surface. Plus, the “bed” length ends up measuring just about 6 feet long.

As a result, taller people may need to sleep diagonally. Furthermore, you may not be able to fit 2 adults on the bed at once.

However, this semi-small futon has the advantage of fitting into small spaces better. You can also move it more easily since it only weighs 95 lbs.
