When someone hears about sofa beds, they think of a bulky L-shaped sofa. However, this is no longer true. The number of pieces can be chosen depending on the size and layout of the room. These come in a variety of styles, materials, designs and decor. Some of them are also equipped with other functional uses. These uses can be storage, cup holders, or be customized and configured appropriately based on the needs of the user.
The development of sofa beds began in the Victorian era and were made by pushing two sofas together so that the couch could be lengthened. In the 1950s, with the popularity of minimalist styles and bold geometric shapes, furniture began to be made that did not require separate pieces of furniture. It was around this time that sofa beds, built-in storage, drink holders, refrigerated drawers, and the like began to be introduced.
Extension sofa beds are usually equipped with three back and seat cushions and have two arms or no arm or even one arm in respectively the left arm facing and right arm facing configuration. There are different models with rolled armrests, ball feet or reclining seats with chaise longue footrest or double padded seat cushions
People find them handy when unexpected guests or more guests than can be accommodated are staying. They are also used when the style of the living room is such that individual pieces either do not match or do not harmonize with the rest of the decor.
