What are chair beds?
Chair beds are a little smaller than your traditional sofa bed, measuring between 80cm and 84cm in width before the sleeping area is extended. Also referred to as sofa bed chairs and armchair beds, they’re designed to look specifically like a chair or a sofa, meaning they won't look out of place within a living room or spare room.
When the sleeping space is extended, a single chair bed turns into a single bed. Be sure to check the individual product dimensions to ensure there’ll be enough space in the room you plan using your sofa chair bed in.

What are the benefits of chair beds and sofa bed chairs?
Chair beds are perfect for guest rooms where space is limited and for placing in small alcoves too. And while they do save space, they still provide a decent amount of sleeping space when extended, providing your guests with a comfortable place to sleep. Chair beds are suitable for adults to sleep on, so are the perfect solution for overnight hosting.
What's more, sofa bed chairs come in a wide variety of styles and materials, alongside a range of colours, from light cream through to darker options such as brown and black. Whether you want a warm, pastel-toned sofa chair bed or a modern, sleeker design, there are plenty of armchair beds to choose from in our affordable range.
How do chair beds and sofa bed chairs work?
Chair beds have easy-to-use features. Depending on which model you opt for, the access to the under-seat bed frame will change, however, rest assured, they’re all easy to assemble.
Some of our A-Frame sofa beds use a hinge mechanism. This means that the backrest of the sofa will drop down to create a bed. The nature of this sofa chair bed design means you'll have to pull the sofa away from a wall or alcove before dropping the backrest.
