So let me tell you a little about this cool Sofa Sleeper. It is like no other, and believe me, Hubby and I were shopping around. You see, my inlaws are coming, as is my Aunt and Uncle, and I am mortified to think of them sleeping on a half inflated, nylon smelling, blow up mattress for one more visit. So we invested in a Sofa sleeper slash futon slash stylish couch from Ikea. It is really cool. I'll explain. First, the matress is just SO comfortable. Its a nice, three ply foam mattress with a nice thick cover. Then we got the quilted mattress pad for an extra $30.00. So worth it. the frame of this is steel and wood. Its sturdy, heavy too. It "plops" down like a futon. There are no metal bars sticking in you, its smooth going all over. And soft and a good distance from the ground. To store it, you push it up on its wheels quite easily, and throw this WAY COOL cover over it that comes down on it like a fitted glove. Done. Its so easy and it is plenty big for the inlaws, but stylish enough to be an every day couch. The cover is washable and thick, and it comes in 7 cool colors and fabrics. So if you are in the market for a sleeper sofa and you can't stand the thought of buying another futon, or another couch that has that metal bar sticking in your back while you sleep, you need to get your happy ass to Ikea and pick up this affordable alternative to a sleeper sofa.
