I've been updating my list of best sleeper sofas each year for about four years now, and things have usually changed slowly. This past year, however, things changed a good deal and I have a bunch of new entrants to the field. Enjoy!
>> One Night Stand from Blu Dot ($1800) - This is a great new solution, which takes mid-century styling and has it fold open to make a bed in a cool way.
>> Twighlight Sofa from DWR ($1700) - A very popular solution, this daybed design is slim and modern, without any fuss.
>> Havana Sleeper Sofa from DWR ($3150) - Aaron really likes this because it's big and low with storage.
>> Troy Sleeper Sofa from Crate & Barrel ($1400) - Very traditional design with a bi-fold innerspring mattress, but it consistently gets high marks.>> Dawson Sleeper from Room & Board ($2700) - We really like the design of the bed for longer stays. Their "comfort sleeper" design has no springs and gives you a really comfortable, even bed surface.
>> Nomade Express from Ligne Roset ($4245) - A classic design with simple action, the quilted back folds down to give you a nice big bed surface with no springs or bars.
>> Flex Sofa from CB2 ($999) - Similar to the Nomade, but at a fraction of the price, this is a nice budget solution.
OTHER BEST SHOPS:
• American Leather/American Upholstery - Readers swear by this company and their quality is well known.
• Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams - These guys make the sofas for Crate and Barrel and others, so they're solid with good prices and classic styling.
LOCAL TO NYC:
• Carlyle Convertibles - Multiple experiences say these folks are the best as custom sleepers and on the expensive side.
• Avery Boardman - The most luxurious, to the trade only.
