Sofabeds are a pain in the arse, aren't they?
We originally thought it would be better to get one of those beds that folds away into a special wardrobe affair, but a) they were horribly expensive and b) they were all pig ugly. So plan B is to get a really nice sofabed... and we found it!
It's Italian, the mattress is genuinely comfy, 140cm wide (proper double) and all the bedding stays on it, so you don't have to fumble with cushions twice a day. Importantly, it opens and closes extremely simply and easily. So simply in fact, that I even managed (albeit with a bit of a wobble) to film myself opening and closing it with one hand, and I'm a weed! Ta-dah!
P.S. The one we've ordered is actually kinda mole grey, not chocolate brown...
