Over the past six years, I’ve been working on, and perfecting something called Convert-a-Couch. It’s been a project that has been exhilarating, exhausting, confusing…and rewarding.
The above photo shows our latest version. This is a sofa bed, 86 inches long, that turns into a bed by just lifting the front and clicking. It reclines and goes back into the seated position just by lifting the front.
What makes this different than what is out there are two things. One is that this product is really comfortable, with pocketed coils in the seat and back, something that is only offered on premium products. Secondly, it ships via UPS in one box; that’s right, UPS.
While it isn’t high fashion, it’s acceptable fashion, something this category has had trouble reaching forever. And with a price under $500 delivered to your door, it looks pretty good to me.
You will begin to see versions of this product in better fabrics and styling going forward. I might even have something that we could call fashionable.
I’ll have a party that day.
