3 Recently Discontinued Sofa Sleepers from DWR

3 Recently Discontinued Sofa Sleepers from DWR

UPDATE: As of 9/1/2010 the Havana and Sliding Sofa are back at Design Within Reach!

For an added twist, this week I'm profiling 3 sofa sleepers that I had already photographed and experimented with BUT I just learned that they have all been discontinued by DWR — while unfortunate (I was rather fond of the Havana) this could prove to be a great chance to score a deal on any of these models: Havana, Sliding Sofa or Vega.

HAVANA
The Havana is a true lounging sofa — it's long, low and comfortable. This is a convertible sofa that one would never suspect. It's remarkably easy to manipulate and the oversized pillows add to the charm. The downfall is that it is only a twin bed — though it makes up for this with built in storage and overall aesthetic. If I had room for a sofa this large, I would hunt one of these down.
PROS sleek, storage
CONS big, low, heavy, twin bed

DISTRIBUTOR DWR
ORIGINAL PRICE $3,500 (no longer online — look for discounted floor models at DWR studio stores and any remaining stock at DWR Annex locations)
DESIGNERS Alberto Lievore, Manel Molina, Jeanette Altherr
DIMENSIONS sofa | 24.5"H x 88.5"W x 39"D Seat 13"H
twin bed | 24"H x 66-75.5"W x 34.5"D
TRANSITION EASE A

SLIDING SOFA
The Sliding Sofa has been part of the DWR lineup for as long as I can remember. The design is very straightforward and utiliatarian which translates to a sleeper where the transition process is intuitive.
PROS intuitive transition process, minimal and basic
CONS really expensive for such a basic design

DISTRIBUTOR DWR
ORIGINAL PRICE $3,500 (no longer online — look for discounted floor models at DWR studio stores and any remaining stock at DWR Annex locations)
DESIGNER Pietro Arosio
DIMENSIONS sofa | 32.5"H x 80"W x 34"D Seat 16"H
bed | 16"H x 80"W x 57"D
TRANSITION EASE A
As of 10/21, Sliding Sofa Slipcovers are still available from DWR for $1300

VEGA
This modular system has lots of possibilities, the three components, sofa, chaise and ottoman, all work well together and can be combined in different formations for a more custom approach to furnishing a space. Both the chaise and sofa convert to a twin-sized bed and can be moved to create a larger sleeping area. The sofa arm can be moved from either the left or right side.

PROS modular, customizable
CONS big, low, converting to a double sleeper requires moving furniture

DISTRIBUTOR DWR
ORIGINAL PRICE sofa | $1,680 - $2,400 (depending on color)
chaise | $1,700 $1,190
DESIGNER Busk & Hertzog
MANUFACTURER
DIMENSIONS sofa | 24"H x 65/79"W x 41.5"D Seat 14"H
chaise | 24"H x 66-75.5"W x 34.5"D
TRANSITION EASE B-

As of 10/21 additional slipcovers and pillows are also currently available.

TIME FOR A DEAL! With these 3 models just recently discontinued from Design Within Reach, look for discounted floor models at DWR studio stores and any remaining stock at DWR Annex locations.
