Get a look inside Furl Sofa Bed Mechanisms

Furl sofa beds are specifically designed and engineered to give you the best night’s sleep. A night of sleep so good you wouldn’t know you’re sleeping on a sofa bed, and one of the ways we do this is by investing in the design of our sofa bed mechanisms.

Sofa bed mechanisms make a huge difference when it comes to:

  • How good (or not) a night’s sleep you get on a sofa bed
  • How easy (or not) a sofa bed can go from being a sofa to a bed and back again
  • How much space a sofa bed take up when it’s opened up as a bed
  • How good a sofa bed looks as a sofa
  • The thickness of the mattress and overall sleep experience

We know there are loads of sofa beds online and in stores, but they’re not all the same! In this post, we will tell you what makes our sofa beds unique, starting with our superior sofa bed mechanisms.

Furl Sofa Bed Mechanisms 

Our sofa bed mechanisms are designed to be unobtrusive (so you don’t feel the bars), strong (right down to the legs), and easy to open and close.

Fully Sprung and Supportive

Because we position the steel bars under the mattress in places you’re less likely to feel them, we’ve created zones that are completely sprung (like a real bed) to give the best possible sleep experience on a sofa bed.

Strong, Supportive Legs

The weakest part of a traditional sofa bed is the legs, often made from flimsy tubular steel they bed and break too easily. Ours don’t. We designed them to withstand use every day as a bed and a sofa for years.

Now, let’s look into 6 reasons to invest in a Furl sofa bed.

6 Reasons to Invest in a Furl Sofa Bed 

Furl’s sofa beds are designed to be as comfortable and the same size as a bed, so you won’t know you’re sleeping on a sofa bed.

Best sofa bed sleep experience 

A sofa bed so comfortable it’s crafted for every day or night’s use. Furl sofa beds are proper beds, without the annoying metal bars you might have experienced digging into you when sleeping on other sofa beds.

Furl sofa beds are made in 5 widths, and they are always 2m 6’6  long. We are the only company that makes a sofa bed with a full-size UK Super King bed 180 x 200 (and other large sizes).

We also do sofa beds in smaller sizes, right down to a single bed and up to the largest you could need.

Real bed height; get in and out easily 

Sofa beds are typically lower to the ground than a regular bed. It’s another reason why most sofa beds are known for poor sleep experiences.  No one likes to get on their hands and knees to get in and out of bed, no matter how old you are.

Ours are the same height as a real bed – this makes getting in and out very easy, especially if you are older.

Most comfortable and thickest mattresses for a better night’s sleep 

We make the thickest mattresses on a sofa bed. Most sofa bed mattresses are only 10cm thick, and when you’ve got metal mechanism bars underneath, it’s one of the reasons most sofa beds give people an awful night’s sleep.

Our mattress options are 12, 14, and 18cm thick, depending on the model. The most popular have an 18cm mattress.

Stylish and stunning sofa beds with 100s of fabric options 

Furl sofa beds come with 100s of fabric options, including any fabric of your own choosing.

Sofa bed fabrics include an eco-friendly range made out of 100% recycled plastic and other options that are vegan, rated by The Vegan Society.

12 sofa bed models, 5 sizes, and 5 arm designs (including ones with storage)

Furl sofa beds come in a range of 12 models, 5 sizes, and 5 arm designs, including arms with storage for bedding or anything else you need to store. Our sofa bed mechanisms are easy to open and close (including remote control/electric options), and the cushions stay in place, so you don’t have to put them in a heap elsewhere in the room.

Our mechanisms ensure you can go from sofa to sofa bed in only a few seconds. We place the steel bars where you won’t feel them, and every frame comes with a 5-year warranty (and 2 years for fabric).
