Why I Love this Modern Black Convertible Futon Combo:
Probably the biggest reason that I like convertible futons is the fact that they are so versatile. Re-position the furniture, move it around and you’ve got a whole new look to your room and a different way to use the furniture. You get a lot of value for your money.
This black faux leather futon set is the epitome of that.
Not only do you get a convertible futon – but a matching chair and ottoman that can also be moved and converted to create several different room arrangements. Want a one-piece sectional? A reclining lounger? A comfortable footrest? A more formal chair with sofa arrangement?
And don’t forget the one we all know: the futon bed!
On top of that, multiple sets can give you even more options. Think wrap-around couch, back-to-back sofas, a double lounger and more…
On the flip side, you don’t need to use a set altogether. For example, let’s say you need a futon in the family room but would like a chair and ottoman in your home office. I know, it sounds crazy, but this is one wild futon set.
Better than a Black Leather Sofa?
The Chelsea futon also has that “black leather” appeal without the high price tag. Plus it’s easy to clean and care for. (Many shoppers start looking for black leather futons but end up realizing that the faux version actually looks really nice and end up changing their minds.)
This is not your generic black futon though. The manufacturers stepped this sofa up a notch by adding pillow-top cushioning. It looks very sophisticated, not to mention more comfortable.
But don’t let the sophistication fool you. Just like typical convertible futons, this one also reclines at multiple angles, so you can have an upright seat back – but also recline to to a more comfortable casual lounging position (great for watching movies and reading books). Not many black leather sofas do that…
More Versatility = More Value
The color, upholstery and design of this furniture can fit in virtually any decor – whether formal or casual. Plus, even though it has a more modern look, I’d consider it timeless.
You can use it for many years without feeling like you’ve got dated furniture that needs to be updated or replaced (another great value feature to look for in furnishings!).
Another cool thing about this futon sofa that I didn’t mention above is the split-back feature. Recline one side while keeping the other side upright.
This is nice if two people want to sit on the sofa at the same time but recline at different positions, or it can be a useful option when re-arranging your living room furniture.
A Potential Downside: The futon converts to a twin sleeper – for one person.
