Regular, Daybed or Sofabed for Studio?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are moving to NY and had to down-size to a 400 sq ft studio apartment. We're having a hard time deciding if to use a queen bed, sofabed or daybed to fit in the small place we have for socializing as well as sleeping.

My husband wants to avoid coming home everyday to a small room with just a bed rather than being able to fit a sofabed or day bed with a coffee table and TV media unit.

While I feel the same way, I'm worried we won't be able to find a comfortable pull out sofa bed or a nice queen size daybed. I know this is a common scenario in NY but we really don't know how to make the studio look chic and comfortable to sleep in. I can't seem to find any ideas online and would love to hear your thoughts!
