With the holiday season fast approaching, I thought it would be useful to pull together a range of different sofa beds currently on the market both here in the U.K. and in the U.S. I find that as I get older, I'm increasingly spending the festive period, or weekend celebrations for holiday events, at different homes of family members. I recently invested in a sleeper sofa of my own for this very reason, as I'm soon to be hosting family in my new apartment. You can see which design I bought, among others, below! — Will from Bright.Bazaar
I like that Sofa.com lets you choose any fabric to upholster your chosen sofa bed design. I think this rose pink looks very pretty against the dark walls.
Aubergine is not only a big color trend right now, but also a very cocooning hue. It is perfect for the cooler winter months.
I like the nod to midcentury style in this handsome, tufted couch-meets-sofa-bed.
I think this compact sofa bed would be great for a studio or a small, one-bedroom apartment.
I recently enjoyed learning more about Scandinavian design at the London Design Festival, so the Knap sofa bed by Per Weiss is now one of my firm favorites.
The apple green color of this single sofa bed would be fun in a first apartment.
This extra large sofa bed would be ideal for ultimate comfort.
I like the curved lines and oak legs on this sofa bed.
I love how this colorful chaise converts to a sofa bed. It's stylish and practical.
Choosing a faux leather fabric makes the sleek look of a leather couch more affordable.
As a big color lover, I couldn't not include this bright orange sleeper from CB2.
I love how this sleeper sofa from Pottery Barn looks almost exactly like a proper bed.
This sofa would make a great color statement in an all white space.
I had to include the Porto sofa bed from Habitat because I recently ordered it for my spare room. I love knowing that it's being made in Italy.
Daybeds always create a cozy feel in a space, and this one from West Elm feels particularly tempting for an afternoon nap.
The blue hue of this design would be ideal for a nautical-inspired room.
I like how the mattress for converting this daybed into a sofa bed is cleverly incorporated into the base of the design.
I think this sofa bed could make for a great statement piece in a modern scheme.
Although I could only dream of having a home big enough for a couch this size, I thought it was worth including for its total luxe factor.
