Although we looked at the Best Sleeper Sofas of 2012
a couple weeks ago, there are small spaces where even a sofa bed won't fit. In those instances, sleeper chairs and ottomans may work in a pinch. While they may not be comfortable enough to sleep on every night, convertible chairs and ottomans expand for quick and easy small space guest rooms. • Cushy Sleeper Sofa from PB Teen
Although described as a sofa, this sleeper measures only 47" wide - just small enough to be considered a chair.
• Tia Convertible Leatherette Daybed from AllModern $507.99
This modern chair, reminiscent of the Twilight Sleeper Sofa from DWR, unfolds to create a bed.
• Abbyson Living Cosmo Convertible Chair from BJs $579.99
This simple gray chair includes a click-clack mechanism, allowing the back to be adjusted to multiple angles and also to lay flat to create a bed.
• Castro Convertible Ottoman $699
By day it's a simple unassuming ottoman, perfect for propping up your feet and watching TV. By night, it unfolds to create a bed, a welcoming respite for a last minute guest.
• Futon Chaise Lounge from FutonCreations $549
This futon looks stylish as a chair and, folded flat, creates a dashing little bed.
• Hippo Convertible Chair from FutonCreations $399
Slouchy and overstuffed, this chair would bring a casual comfort to a small space – whether as a chair or, when unfolded, as a bed.
• PS LOVAS from Ikea $209
With casters for ease of use and a low price tag for bargain shopping, this offering from Ikea is sure to be a favorite. Make it your own by creating a DIY slip cover for the mattress.
• Sleepy Twin Sleeper Chair from JCPenney $600
Of all the sleeper chairs we've seen, this model is the most unassuming. It has also gotten rave reviews, both on the Penney's website and here on Apartment Therapy.
