Buying a sofa-bed

Postby ozchick » Wed, 23 Jul 2008 11:14 am

Any recomendations please on where to buy a really great bed- sofa. The ones for sale in 'that Swedish' place even my Swedish rooster doesn't recommend. Does anyone have one that is as good as a firm bed ? What brand and can we get one here in Sg ? Not so concerned about the look colour etc as the comfort factor for guests.
OR alternatively a 'double' bed (not Queen). Haven't found these here so far in Sg. Maybe they're not available. The spare bedroom is really too small for a queen-size bed.
Grateful for any advice yeah ?

Have you tried Park Mall? Its in the Orchard belt opposite Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. Lots of mid- to high-end furniture.

My personal preference for a guestroom would be a teak daybed - not the foldable sort but a permanent sofa with lots of cushions / pillows; it's big and comfy enough to sleep in (unless you're very tall).

Have fun shopping!

Agree with WIMH, I just purchased a cheap double bed with out the headboard, and a locally made firm mattress.

Made some large round boulsters, for three sides, and a matching cover for the whole mattress, then chucked a load of pillows around. It looks like a comfy large sofa fit for a nomadic sheik, and if a guest comes along easy to convert to a bed.

In fact the giant sofa was so comfy the guest room has now become the Den.
