Mr Kate Futon Couch Review – the Pros & Cons

Do you want a designer-looking sofa that doesn’t have a high price tag? The Mr Kate Futon Couch has lots of style, it multi-functional and feels super soft too.

Mustard Yellow Mr Kate Futon Couch with Vintage Mid Century Modern Style

As you can see, this couch has some unique design features, including its unusual bright color. It definitely gets your attention, and it can turn an ordinary living room into one with boho chic style.

Alternatively, this designer look fits well with mid century modern decor or industrial lofts. And because it has such a dramatic style, you can use it in a minimalist home. Especially since it transforms into a bed…

Furniture that is Versatile, Functional, Cozy & Stylish:

Although it looks like a cool vintage sofa, the “Neely” futon reclines into a bed as well. In fact, it looks so sophisticated and stylish in the flat position that you may decide to set it up as a full-time chaise.

Tufted Futon Laid Flat as a Guest Bed or Casual Chaise Lounger

Actually, this couch offers 3 different positions: sitting, lounging and sleeping. Plus, you can recline each seat back separately to accommodate different preferences – or to create a unique seating arrangement.

Typically, convertible futons don’t make the most comfortable sleepers when you compare them to mattresses. Although the Neely does provide additional cushioning, it does have seams that cross down the middle. Plus, the bed is not adequately wide enough to fit 2 large adults.

In any case, this mid century sofa is definitely versatile and user-friendly, especially if you live in a small home. Not to mention, it weighs under 100 pounds, so it’s easy to move.

Plush Cushions and Split-Back Design on Mr Kate Sofa Futon

I am also a big fan of the extra-plush cushions. They make this sofa cozy, and they contrast nicely against the straight-angle armrests. That said, some customers have mentioned that they wish the couch felt a little firmer.

Unique Features Make this Convertible Futon Stand Out:

Modern Futon Features: Asymmetrical Angled Armrests and Slim Tubular LegsYou can’t see it as well in the other photos, but this couch has unique angled armrests. I think this feature makes the sofa more esthetically pleasing, but more comfortable as well.

In addition, the slim tube-like legs add to this sofa’s mid-century modern appeal. They also are very unique compared to the standard straight futon legs.

Overall, I think that these small simple changes give the Mr Kate Futon an ultra-chic look. Yet, you don’t have to pay a high price for this furniture. The price is surprisingly affordable!

Note: By the way, I own chairs that feature this same tubular frame design, and they feel ultra sturdy. They may appear like they can’t support a lot of weight, but they certainly can. The sofa back also has hidden fold-down legs that offer more support for a bed or lounger.
