In the couch/furniture universe when something costs around $400 bucks we can say it’s cheap. That’s the case with this mid-century love seat. It’s on the small side and from the reviews I read, people were pleased with the quality of the price range. When it comes to sofas, the price rises according to the quality and durability of the upholstery material, the cushion resilience, and the frame/structure resistance and technology. So, if you are on a low budget, this sofa is a good option. It’s available in blue and grey as well.

Definitely not a conventional look for a sleeper sofa, your guests will be surprised when it simply folds back into a bed. I’m very realistic (traumatized) about the comfort level of sofa beds, but considering Kardiel’s cushioning quality, I’d give it a chance. Also, they have a 365-day in-home trial policy, in case you find it painful. So I guess you won’t!
