They're getting better. You really can get a night's sleep on a sofa, but some ARE better than others, and money does seem to buy you more comfort. This list represents what we've learned since our last list in 2007...

The Best

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.


Room & Board - These folks have worked hard on their sleeper sofa and offer two solutions: the Air Coil (like the Aero but in a sofa) and the Comfort Sleeper which is a really smart application of a foam mattress (no bars!)

American Leather/American Upholstery - Readers swear by this company and their quality is well known.

Crate and Barrel - For affordable pricing and solid quality, C&B gets great marks.

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.

DWR - The Twighlight and the Sliding sofa continue to be favorites in the hinged foam category with youthful, mid century styling.

Ligne Roset - Their Nomade Express is a great design for a hinged, foam design in a sexy, modern package.
