Maxwell’s Modern Sleeper Sofa & Sofa Bed Reviews
Earlier this year, Dwell Magazine asked me to review an assortment of modern sofa beds, and my sleeper sofa opinions are in the September issue. Mind you, I was not responsible for choosing the sofas, only for reviewing them, but they included great ones, most of which are on my most recent list — Best Sleeper Sofas & Sofa Beds 2009.
Dwell was also good in using my unvarnished words, which were sometimes a bit harsh (but correct). Their list is not ranked by preference, but I have rearranged the list to show mine here. Click through to read the reviews & enjoy!
1. Nomade-Express Day Bed by Ligne Roset – $4,245
2. One Night Stand Sleeper Sofa by Blu Dot – $1,800
3. Vincent Twin Sleeper by CB2 – $1,000
4. American Modern Daybed by DWR – $2,100
5. Spaze Sofa Bed by BoConcept – $1,899
I also include here some outtakes that I took myself on the day. Being in this photo studio in Brooklyn, a large airy space, was a pleasure in itself. The photographer, Jim Bastardo, who also shoots a lot of DWR’s stuff, took all the pics and made it all very clean, modern and Dwell-y. He was also funny, which made smiling for the camera so much easier.
