In A League Of Its Own!

1950s Retro, Mid Century Sofabed
This magnificent piece is truly in a league of its own. The frame is made from solid beech wood and the design speaks for itself – the tapered, circular legs & elegantly curved armrests are complimented perfectly by the thick brown woven upholstery. It was love at first sight when I spotted it abandoned in the back room of a junkshop, despite being covered in cat hair and being heavily stained! I hoovered up every last trace of its previous owner’s cat and steam cleaned the dirty upholstery leaving it gleaming. It transforms into its sofabed alter ego using a simple lift mechanism, and the seatpad also lifts up to reveal a bit of hidden storage space – ideal for storing board games & hiding clutter when you have guests!

    My Mum and Dad had one just like this! Do you have any idea which company made it. I could do with one just like it right now!

    • Hi Diane..
      Thanks for your message –
      Unfortunately I don’t know who manufactured these sofabeds. I wasn’t able to find a makers stamp/marking on the one I had. I remember there was a time when they were everywhere but they seem to have slowly disappeared from people’s living rooms! I would say eBay, gumtree or secondhand furniture shops would be your best bet for tracking one down now? Hope that helps a little. Cheers, Rujina.
