Where to buy a sleeper sofa

Our go-to retailers when looking for the best and most affordable sleeper sofas.

abc carpet & home
From the pretty pink Napper daybed to the comfortable Boutique velvet sleeper sofa, abc carpet & homes sofa bed selection may be small, but there are some gems to be had.

Cool and contemporary, this is a great store to check out if you want a sofa bed with modern or minimalist vibes.

As the name might suggest AllModern has a small yet contemporary selection of sofa beds on offer.

We particularly like the mid-Century modern Gabi sleeper sofa, but if futuristic is more your thing then the blocky curves of the Thataway Chesterfield may have you swooning.

Ashley Homestore
A huge selection of chair beds and sofa beds starting from around $200 and ending at the $1000 mark make Ashley's Furniture a good place to look for an affordable sit sleep solution.

Classic options include the Antonlini Queen Sleeper Sofa that offers spacious sleeping with trad rolled arms and piped detailing.

Birch Lane
Ranging from just under $600 to around $1500 for a larger sleeper sofa, Birch Lane offers a good selection of contemporary and timeless classic sofa beds.

Most of the sleeper sofa styles come in a range of upholstery choices, and nearly all of the models feature matching furniture as part of the range, making it a good port of call for a complete lounge furniture overhaul.

Clean lines and simple forms make up CB2's sleeper sofa range, with minimalist futons, daybeds and sleeper sofas in plentiful supply. 

Home Depot
If you're looking for a budget sofa bed that's under $1000 - well under in many cases - then Home Depot is a good place to start the search. 

Offering contemporary futons as well as more trad style sleeper sofas, the prices are good year round, but you may well snap up a real bargain come sale time. 

One Kings Lane
With sofa bed prices starting from $2500 and ranging up to $4500 a One Kings Lane sleeper sofa is definitely an investment piece. However, if you're willing to spend a little more on timeless and classic design then it's well worth look.

We love the traditional rolled arms and castor feet of the Brooke Sleeper Sofa which comes in a carefully curated edit of understated - yet lovely - velvet upholstery options. 

A huge selection of sleeper sofa styles makes Overstock a great place to go for inspiration if nothing else. 

There are some good budget alternatives to a traditional sleeper sofa, with versatile and affordable floor sofas starting from under $200, and at the top end of the range are a wide range of leather sofa beds for around $2000 - $3000.

Raymour & Flanigan
With over 60 styles of sleeper sofa on offer, starting from just over $600 and running to $5000, there is a sofa bed for every budget at furniture and mattress specialist Raymour & Flanigan.

Serena & Lily
Sleeper sofa prices start from $5498 at Serena & Lily, but if you're after laidback Californian beach style then the brand's relaxed yet tailored sofa beds offer understated glamour, 

We especially love the Spruce Street Sleeper in the coastal-inspired 'Beach Stripe' upholstery.

Urban Outfitters 
Stylish and contemporary, Urban Outfitters has a good selection of sleeper sofas that are that little bit different from the usual. 

We really like the slouchy Greta sleeper sofa in recycled leather, and if you're looking for a true budget option that still delivers style points then the Rohini daybed floor cushions create a dreamy yet affordable crashpad. 

Walmart's sleeper sofa options are for the most part on the trad side, but their American Furniture Classics range has some well-loved favourites. 

If you're looking for a faux-leather sleeper sofa that won't break the bank, then the Palomino Sofa Bed could be worth considering. 

Contemporary to classic, sofa bed to sleeper chair, there's a style and size for everyone in Wayfair's extensive range. 

We're fans of the super affordable - currently under $400 - Imani Velvet Square Arm Sleeper that comes in a range of pretty pastel shades, and the compact Evan 66.5" Square Arm Sleeper that's ideal for small spaces.
