In my weekly profiles of various Sleeper Sofa models, the One Night Stand sofa from Blu Dot is repeatedly listed in the comments as a favorite of readers. The design is simple, modern and the transition process is easy and intuitive — and it flips!One Night Stand is Blu Dot's first sleeper sofa and was launched at ICFF in 2008 — see Janel's post, ICFF 2008: One Night Stand - New Sleeper from Blu Dot.
As I mentioned above, the transition process couldn't be much easier. After removing the two throw pillows and two back cushions (held snuggly in place with wooden panels), the sofa opens like a clamshell. Form follows function here — the back and arm rests of the sofa become the support for the queen-sized sleeping surface.
Both the sofa and mattress are comprised of a high-density foam that is comfortable in both instances, for both purposes.
Unlike some of the bulkier models that offer quick-and-easy transitioning from sofa to bed (Ligne Roset's Mostra and DWR's Soto), One Night Stand retains a sleek profile and a much lower price.
Upholstered in a wool blend that resembles felt, One Night Stand is available in grey or rust. It should be noted that the rust is not as intensely red as the photos suggest!
In New York, you can see the One Night Stand at the SoHo Flagship store.
