[Review] Convertible Linen Fabric Tufted Splitback Sleeper by BCP
First Things First
This convertible couch sleeper ships in a surprisingly small box. It comes folded down. The legs, arms and bolts are stored at the bottom of the futon. You can miss this part if you’re not looking. Assembly is required but you only have to put together very few pieces. You won’t have any trouble with it. You just slide the arms into the metal slots on the side. As for the legs, you simply use the supplied Allen wrench to screw them in.
The color we got is the light seafoam gray. It turned out to have a subtle tint of blue, which I really love. The couch has a clean and modern look that goes well with my living room’s furniture. The tufting on the seat and back adds dimension to the whole piece. The back isn’t the same color as the rest of the sofa. It won’t look that nice if you have the couch in the middle of the room.
The couch is great for watching TV during the day and for guests to sleep in when they would spend the night. It’s good for taking naps too. The couch seats 3 persons. At most, it can fit 4. The couch is on the firm side, and it all comes down to preferences. I like firm couches, so I am happy with the way it is. Moreover, I would have to point out that the pillows aren’t the best there is. I actually replaced them with plusher ones.
There is a support bar in the middle, the part where the futon can be folded up and down. It can get uncomfortable if you lay down directly on it. A mattress topper can do the trick. This is a futon and not a mattress, so I wouldn’t suggest sleeping on this every night. It’s a fantastic guest bed, though.
The futon is long enough and works well for my guests. We’ve had a guest who stands 6’3 and he’s slept comfortably. It is also wide enough to allow you movement. The fabric doesn’t feel itchy against your skin.
I know that there are a lot of futon couches out in the market. I particularly love this one because of its split back. You can choose to recline just half of the sofa. This feature comes in handy when my husband feels like having an afternoon nap while I watch the TV. The folding mechanism works smoothly, so it doesn’t take a muscle to convert the sofa.
This sofa is designed for small spaces. Even when fully extended into a sleeper, it doesn’t get in the way. I recommend this for people living in an apartment. It won’t hurt your wallet too. At less than $300, this sofa is worth every penny. It is elegant and looks expensive. The chrome legs are stable and can handle weight well. Spending more can get you a better couch. However, if you’re working with a limited budget, this is your best bet. – Jenny M
