Space-saving sofa beds for every home

Here at Lounge Lovers, we adore pieces of furniture that perform double duty.

Whether it’s extendable tables to TV units with added storage, multi-functional pieces allow you to maximise your floor plan while ensuring everyone’s needs are being met in the home. But none are quite as versatile as the humble sofa bed.

From couches that double as beds to lounges with added storage, convertible day beds, and sofas that can be separated into two single sleeping spaces, modern sofa beds offer endless options for multi-functional style. Below, we take a look at some of our favourite sofa beds for every purpose, style and space.

Is a sofa bed a good idea?

Space-saving sofa beds for every home


Sofa beds have come a long way from the uncomfortable springy beds we once knew. Today’s sofa beds are as comfortable as a mattress, which means your guests will enjoy plenty of support — whether they’re staying for a night, two nights, or even a week. What’s more, these pieces of furniture present plenty of space to sprawl out, with most 2-seat sofa beds in the Lounge Lovers range converting into a Queen or even a King-sized bed.

Another thing to love about contemporary sofa beds? The design. Sofa bed styles have seen an incredible upgrade in recent years, thanks to their growing popularity. Regardless of what type of aesthetic you’re channelling in your home, there’s a sofa bed to match: think Scandi chic, coastal getaway, or mid-century modern.

Sofa beds aren’t just an option if you’re tight on space either. With a sofa bed, you can enjoy the comfort of watching a movie in bed from your living room, or add extra sleeping spot in the kid’s room for hosting sleepovers.

Our favourite sofa beds for any space

For the living room: Happy 2-seat sofa bed

The Happy 2-seat sofa bed gets its name for a reason: with its spacious design and the ability to convert into a recliner, chaise lounge or bed, this sofa bed is a delight for households that love to entertain. Relax and recline with loved ones for a movie night, then extend the Happy out into a roomy sleeping space for your guests. The Happy also features a lightweight design with no legs, hidden straps or springs, so it’s easy to fold and unfold as needed.

Best of all, the Happy Sofa Bed comes in multiple colourways to suit your style: opt for the classic Wind Anthracite or Omega Anthracite, or make a statement with Wind Yellow, Copper or Forrest Green.

Pro tip: pair the Happy 2-seat sofa with the Happy Armchair Sofa Bed for extra comfort and space for guests.

Most modern sofa beds are already incredibly comfy. However, if you want one that’s a notch above the rest, the Cove Chaise Sofa Bed needs to be top of your list.

This beautiful sofa bed features a chaise design that’s perfect for stretching out, as well as a gorgeous neutral tone that exudes contemporary coastal style.

Looking for something a touch more classic? The Alexis sofa bed is the way to go. This stylish 3-seater embodies Danish mid-century design with its low profile, oak legs, clean lines and tufting detail.

We love the Alexis for its easy and practical click clack design, which allows the sofa to transform into a bed in mere moments, and its stress-tested materials that ensure the sofa stands the test of time.

For lounging around the home

Robbie Daybed

Day beds are the hallmark of any luxe lifestyle — and with the Happy, you’ll get a day bed and a night bed all in one.

Made for relaxing with a good book or unwinding after a long day at work, the Happy Armchair Sofabed is a comfortable and cozy addition to any living space. Then, when you need to catch a wink of sleep, the Happy converts into a supportive generous queen size bed that’s perfect for bedtime — or even for a cheeky nap.

For extra storage: Mondo Storage Chaise Sofa Bed

If you’re looking for extra storage, look no further than the Felix 3 Seat Sofa Bed. Sporting a generous L-shaped design and queen-sized memory foam mattress with a state-of-the-art spring system, the Mondo serves both as a spacious sofa to lounge about and a truly luxurious sleeping experience for guests.

But what really sets the Mondo apart is the added storage under the chaise to help curb the clutter. This handy hidden compartment is an easy spot to keep spare blankets and pillows for the sofa bed for when guests come by. And, as a bonus, the Mondo’s low maintenance design also features removable seat covers that are easy to clean or replace.

Pro tip: looking for a smaller frame? The Mondo is also available as a 3-seat sofa bed.

For the kid’s room: Kenji 2-Seat Sofa Bed

It’s not just living rooms that benefit from having a sofa bed. These double-duty heroes also make for an ideal addition in any child’s bedroom or playroom — particularly if they’re as compact as the Divano 2 Seat Sofa Bed.

The Kenji can be used as a sofa for playing with toys, reading books, or watching movies together as a family, as well as a handy extra bed for pyjama parties or for hosting unexpected guests. With two vibrant shades available, the Kenji looks right at home amongst the colourful toys and bright walls typically found in playrooms.
