The Sliding Sofa has been part of the DWR lineup for as long as I can remember — I'm fairly certain it was in their first catalog (before they had an online presence!). The design is very straightforward and utilitarian — which translates to a sleeper where the transition process is intuitive.
The foam is dense enough to be comfortable and hold up to use as both a sofa AND a bed — important for a sleeper! The Sliding Sofa seems an excellent "sleeper" candidate (ha!) for someone looking for a sofa that they will use just as frequently as a bed.
PROS intuitive transition process, minimal and basic, slipcovers
CONS limited colors (3), really expensive for such a basic design
