Q: We bought this Lillberg couch from Ikea last year as a guest bed, but the split cushion pads make it terribly uncomfortable to sleep on (the cushions that are split vertically when in the couch position) as they dig into your back or side when sleeping....
I would like to either buy or make new cushions for it, that run the length of the couch, and am looking for ideas. I thought about buying a Futon mattress, but the good ones are very expensive ($500-600). We tried a memory foam topper but it makes the whole thing too soft.
We want to keep the frame as it's kitty-scratch proof. I'm not so concerned about the covers at this point (I can make my own); I just want to find a comfortable alternative to these cushions! Any ideas? I would like to spend in the range of $100-200 and don't mind buying used. Thanks for your help.
