The sofa bed we all want and the number one buy on our list of best sofa beds? Made’s Haru (take a peek below). It's an Insta favourite – and it’s equally gorgeous in real life. In velvet, it’s a design you want to reach out and touch, and the retro-inspired design has the sort of lovely lines that would make it a star of pretty much any living room. Those of us on the Real Homes team who haven’t succumbed have this beauty on our most-wanted list. The Haru small sofa bed is priced at £329 for the most popular colours (including this pink), while less on-trend shades are at £299.
Now it has a rival, though. The velvet Logan fold-out sofa bed from Marks & Spencer (top and below) is a style sensation and utterly strokeable to boot. What’s more, you can snap it up in the on-trend pink, the teal, dark or light grey for a rather appealing £299 for the small double, saving £80 on Made's version of those colours to spend on the other must-have homewares on your list. Never a bad thing in our book.
We have our eyes on the dusty pink version of the Logan (top), but you might be equally bewitched by the teal velvet (above) that’s an alternative. After something more understated? There’s also a dark grey velvet plus a light grey fabric if you prefer (but we’re firmly on the side of velvet, in case you wondered).
The Made Haru? The vintage pink has always been our top choice because it’s on trend and catches the eye without having to shout. But we definitely appreciate the 1970s vibe of the flame orange, and the fab vintage gold, love the lastingly elegant sapphire blue, and appreciate the restful charms of the marine green and pine green options.
