James Lounge Sofa Bed from Gus Modern

James Lounge Sofa Bed from Gus Modern

The James Lounge is the only convertible sofa from Gus Modern. Similar to the classic George Nelson daybed, it's a simple design that is a quick transition from armless sofa to twin sized mattress. Tufted upholstery and a stainless steel frame are contemporary updates that help bring the James in line with the rest of the Gus Modern collection.

The small scale of James makes it especially attractive for apartment dwellers. Though it only converts to a twin-sized sleeping area, it is easy to imagine two of these smaller sofas in a living room arrangement or a single sofa tucked into a small office or alcove sitting area.

Conversion is easy — two velcro tabs on each of the cushions (4 total) secure the backrest to the stainless steel frame. Remove the cushions and the James is ready for a standard twin size fitted sheet.

James is firm and comfortable — this is a sofa that might be more comfortable as a bed, similar to DWR's Twilight Sleeper and Blu Dot's Flat Out models.

James Lounge is available in white vinyl or the menswear-inspired gray herringbone upholstery.
