Novogratz Brittany Futon – Should You Buy It… or Not?

Navy Novogratz Brittany Futon in Living Room

Sophisticated Sofa with a… Low Price

I found another stylish, yet affordable convertible futon that tricks you into thinking it’s a sofa. The tufted linen upholstery combined with the elegant design and unique color options make this sophisticated couch worth buying even if you never use it as a sleeper.

And don’t overlook the distinctive curved armrests and the slanted wooden legs. This futon can add lots of character to a contemporary space without being too trendy. Basically, it has a hard-to-find vintage-looking style that looks cool rather than dated.

Basically, you can save a bunch of money without having to give up style. The Novogratz Brittany Futon definitely makes a statement in any room. Plus, you get a bed out of the deal!

Although you can buy sofas that have a deeper seat with more cushioning, this convertible futon offers a comfortable spot to sit and relax. The polyester and foam filling is durable and provides a good structure for the sofa.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy The Novogratz Futon:

Even though I really like this convertible futon, it’s not for everyone.

Awkward for Sleeping?

First of all, the sleeping platform is a little awkward. As you can see, one side is tufted while the other is not. This may make for an uncomfortable (or interesting) night of sleeping.

Less-than-Ideal Color Options?

Second, the company doesn’t offer this sofa in standard furniture colors. For example, don’t look for tan, white, black or brown. Unless you like the grey, you’re going to have to love bold sofa colors.

Needs More Cushions?

Third, it doesn’t come with extra cushions. In my opinion, you’ll need extra pillows or cushions to “soften up” this futon. This means extra cost. However, it does give you the ability to customize the look of your sofa even more…
