Best Sleeper Sofas: The Official List

The best sleeper sofas of 2021, customer-rated and -reviewed!

Best Value

Petula Convertible Sofa Bed

Width: 83.9" Height: 34.3"

Best Features: Tufted back - Pressure-relief foam

Chic grey fabric. Easy pull-out sofa bed. Solid hardwood frame. Spacious innerspring mattress. Pressure-relief foam. Mid-century modern silhouette. Easy-to-clean design. Tapered legs. Grid-tufted tight back. Solid customer reviews. Unbeatable value. (Need we go on?)

The Best Value category perhaps takes the longest to fill, because best value is less about ticking boxes than it is about the greater design as a whole. Best value, by the way, isn’t the same thing as “most affordable.” While for the “most affordable” category (scroll down to find it!) we looked mainly at the price point alone, “best value” is about the combination of functionality, high luxury craftsmanship and below-average cost. The only “cheap” thing about the Petula is its price.

Best Foam Sleeper Sofas

Silas II Memory Foam Queen Sleeper

Width: 81" Height: 30"

Best Features: Memory foam - Track arms

The Silas is a Queen sleeper that makes going from sitting to lounging to napping a breeze. If reviews are any indication, customers particularly tend to appreciate its memory foam core, versatile hue and clean, stylish track arms.

There are a lot of memory foam sleepers, but there aren’t a lot that do what the Silas does. That is to say, the Silas stands out for its modern style. A crisp shape made up of clean lines, a solid base and thick back cushions have all played a part in shooting the Silas from unknown territory to one of the most excitedly-talked about and anticipated designs among customers. If you appreciate pretty things, you’ll appreciate the Silas.

Jacoby Sleeper

Width: 78" Height: 37"

Best Features: Versatile hue - Easy 3-step conversion

The Jacoby embraces style and comfort – perfect for the unexpected overnight guest. Use it in a living room for daytime lounging, or a small bedroom or home office to get the most out of every inch of every space.

To talk about the Jacoby is to talk about love. Because love is what the Jacoby gives – and it gives it in abundance. From options for sitting and sleeping (the Jacoby wants you to choose a shape that makes you happiest) to a memory foam mattress (the Jacoby thought to itself, it’s not enough that I provide a place to sit and sleep – let me also provide luxury contour foam layers for comfort and support!), every fiber of the Jacoby’s being gives back by way of functionality. If for no other reason, choose the Jacoby for others – even if you aren’t completely sold on the idea of the Jacoby, chances are that your overnight houseguests (or the ones who will most likely be using the Jacoby the most!) will love it.

Best Small Sleeper Sofas

Silas Full Sleeper

Width: 72" Height: 30"

Best Features: Memory foam

The Silas is so cozy, we wouldn't be surprised if people start to use its name as a substitute for the word cozy itself (ex: Your turtleneck looks Silas!) Either way, the customer demand remains steady for this irresistible sleeper design (which also happens to be small space-friendly). 

Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it deserves a place on this list; we chose the Silas not because it’s compact (it is) but because it’s comfy. The best things come in small packages – the package here is the Silas and the thing is the mattress. Featuring a memory foam core designed to support and contour while you sleep, for a great night’s sleep guests will be raving about the next morning, this Silas’s compact shape is by no means a reflection of its comfort levels. Try the Silas in a bedroom, guest room, game room or living room; its size truly can fit anywhere.

Pascal Sleeper

Width: 90.6" Height: 37.8"

Best Features: Small space friendly

Whoever dreamt up the Pascal had to have lived in a small apartment at one point, because every inch of it is designed with space-saving in mind. (Quick PSA: when you visit the Pascal's customer reviews section, have a pair of sunglasses on hand – all the light from all the stars can be pretty blinding!)

While we’ve seen smaller, the Pascal earned its spot here due to simply being great. (We could have easily placed the Pascal in another category – such as “most comfortable,” as well!) And while we have seen smaller, the Pascal also isn’t the biggest we’ve ever seen – it’s not so large that it won’t fit in small spaces, making it versatile and, in this case, small space-friendly. So, while there are smaller designs out there, consider giving up just a few extra inches of floor space to make way for the Pascal in a small room (if you can); your comfort, style and guests will thank you for it.

Best Big Sofa Beds

Cliff Queen Sleeper

Width: 72.2" Height: 35.4"

Best Features: Queen mattress

The Cliff comes with a queen-size foam mattress that overnight guests will love - but it's also tailored with plush accent pillows for versatile style. What more can you ask from a sleeper?

Ironically, the Cliff Queen actually isn’t all that big – at least, in design. In mattress, folded out in the open for sleeping, it spans a Queen sleeping surface, the second-largest size possible (to King). This is the sofa bed if you’re entertaining couples (such as married guests) who need a place to stay for the night. But no matter the relationship status of your guest(s), you can be sure the Cliff will provide for your guest(s) all-night comfort and comfortable support.

Morris Sleeper Sofa

Width: 81.9" Height: 37.8"

Best Features: Big size

The Morris is massive comfort, making it a great option for the unexpected guest dropping in for the night. But don't take our word for it - one glance at the customer reviews paints a clear picture of the Morris's star quality.

The Morris – now we’re talkin’! This giant sleeper ensures that if you want the space to stretch, you’ve got it. Whether you regularly entertain overnight guests or want to be prepared for the unexpected visit, the Morris has got you and your guests covered (literally, on all sides, with surface mass to spare). Once you’re done goggling at the size (take a few seconds, there’s no rush!), also note the Morris’s three-seater cushions and on-trend contemporary, track arm silhouette (just two more of the reasons why it's made the ranks)!

Best Modern Sofa Beds

Petula Convertible Sofa Bed

Width: 83.9" Height: 34.3"

Best Features: Tapered legs - Foam and innerspring
From its tapered legs to chic yellow hue to sleek track arms, the Petula is a mid-century modern statement if there ever was one. And if the customer reviews are any indication, it’s also comfortable. (Like, really comfortable.)

The Petula's available colors may vary, but here, we’re showcasing the bright mustard yellow. (If modern was a color, we’re pretty sure it’d be this one.) Use the Petula in virtually any modern space – it works in mid-century modern, boho modern and urban modern, to name a few. Or, use the Petula in a room with no style to start with, and let the inspiration it comes with take you where it will!

Jacoby Sleeper

Width: 78" Height: 37"

Best Features: Loveseat - Foam mattress

Modern style meets modern comfort, thank to an easy-to-lounge-in design. With an easy-to-convert sleeper mechanism, and bold, versatile hue, it's no wonder the Jacoby gets all the star ratings it does.

The Jacoby Sleeper Sofa also belongs in best modern because it really doesn’t get any more modern than the Jacoby Sleeper. Grid tufting, geometric lines and a simple base strike a contemporary pose that feels as trendy as it does timeless. While it doesn’t come with it, here, it’s shown with a bright red toss pillow for added style and contrast; if you’re bringing home the Jacoby, we highly recommend doing the same)! Of course, we can’t let this section end without pointing out the fact that the Jacoby contains a memory foam mattress in its belly – if at this point you’ve stopped reading this to go buy the Jacoby, we don’t blame you!

Best Queen Sleeper Sofa

Silas Queen Sleeper

Width: 81" Height: 30"

Best Features: Solid hardwood - Memory foam mattress

The Silas isn't something you learn to love over time - you love it from the moment you lay eyes on it. This is thanks to its modern blue hue, crisp track arms and comfortable, high weight-bearing memory foam mattress. When you sleep on the Silas Queen, you'll feel like a Queen (or King)!

When selecting a sleeper for the ‘best Queen’ category, comfort is important – but comfort alone is not enough. It’s also got to have style, affordability and durability. (That last one, though, is actually a given; in order for any product to appear on this list, it’s got to be durable, or well-made and built to last!) The Silas is ‘a go’ on every one of these points and brings a small-space-friendly shape, to boot.

Most Affordable Sleeper Sofa

Paige Convertible Sofa Chaise

Width: 84.6" Height: 34.6"

Best Feature: 5-position chaise

Not everyone likes to lounge or sleep the same. The Paige Convertible Sofa Chaise gets this – and provides a solution through a five (yes, five!) position chaise. Of course, not everyone's budget is the same, and luckily, the Paige Chaise also gets this, coming at an unbeatable price point.

Like the Silas, this design ticks all the boxes. While we can go on, trying to get you to see the Paige for all its amazingness, we figure in this case it’s best to just let what we havedescribed sink in – and hope that you initiate an in-store visit to feelthe Paige with your own hands and seeit, in person, with your own eyes. The worst that can happen is that you’ll fall madly in love with the Paige (ruining all other real-life relationships).

Most Comfortable Sleeper Sofa

Pascal Sleeper

Width: 90.6"  Height: 37.8"

Best Features: Extra-thick cushions - Hidden storage

It's an unexpected surprise when you feel it in-person (as opposed to staring at it on a screen). The cushions are thick, the fabric soft and the mattress as comfy as a bed mattress. The Pascal, though, is comfortable in more ways than one: its hidden storage for sheets and pillows makes staying tidy super easy (and comfortable)!

The Pascal’s customer reviews section should really be called, ‘Love Notes;’ you’ll be hard-pressed to find a review that doesn’t sing its praises. Favorite customer features include the chic grey color, versatile size and track arm silhouette – all of which reflect meticulous construction and quality craftsmanship. Big, durable and casual, the Pascal gets back to the basics of comfort.

Best Loveseat Sleeper

Cliff Full Sleeper Sofa

Width: 64.2" Height: 35.4"

Best Feature: Loveseat by day, bed by night

The smaller size (it is a loveseat, after all, not a sofa!) makes the Full version of the Cliff adorable. Modern details like track arms and a deep charcoal color are like furniture’s “fairy dust” – breathing life and magic into a small silhouette.

Technically, this is a loveseat (not a sofa). So, technically, this would more accurately fit on a list of “best loveseat sleepers” as opposed to best “sofa sleepers,” but the Cliff Full is just too good to ignore, even for this list. Even if you don’t host overnight guests, ever, the style and comfort of the loveseat design alone is worth the price (and rivals those of even non-sleeper designs). We recommend this one for kids' rooms, game rooms, home offices and living rooms.

Best Sleeper Chair

Silas Chairbed

Width: 54" Height: 30"

Best Feature: Chair by day, bed by night

The Silas Chairbed stuns as a modern design in and of itself, but what really sets it apart is its easy three-step sleeper conversion and comfort fill.  (Large cushions with an understated grey hue are just the icing on the cake!)

Luxury is not something one often thinks when they think sofa bed. The Silas Chairbed is here to shatter such notions (or lack thereof) – and replace them with an explosion of luxurious style. Even if its affordability weren’t so high, we have a feeling it would have still landed a spot on this list thanks to its incredibly playful size, comfort and function. Choose the Silas Chairbed if you like the idea of your dollar stretching further.

Best Rated Sleeper Sofa

Luna Grey Daybed

Width: 93" Height: 40"

Best Feature: Adjustable backrests

The Luna has got five stars for the taking, plus some to spare. It's unique in shape but classic in color – all while providing the kind of comfort that makes you go ahhhh. In other words, the Luna is a recipe for a bestseller and the perfect way to end this list with a bang.

The Luna Daybed is a unique design for its versatile silhouette - equipped with adjustable headrests for a truly customized lounging experience. Customers also tend to appreciate its sleek color and comfy, supportive cushioning. Add on to that the stylish tufting, and you get a clear picture as to why it’s one of the most rave-reviewed sleeper sofas out there – and secured a spot at the end (hey, we saved the best for last!) of this list.
