Sofa beds have come a long way since the old futons from the ’90s. You know, the ones your parents probably had growing up and aptly named “rootons”. Yeah, those. These days, there are comfortable armchair sofa beds, along with 1.5, 2 and 3-seater options. Most of them are probably more comfortable than that old mattress you’ve been sleeping on.

Plus, they’re a great way to accommodate extra house guests if you live in a tiny apartment or a house full of flatmates. Now, we know what you’re thinking, they must be super expensive — but honestly, because you’re getting a comfy couch and a bed all in one, they’re pretty reasonably priced.

Here are some of the best sofa beds in Australia that are worthy of your guests (or yourself on a scat Sunday!).

The Best Sofa Beds in Australia

Best Overall: Emma Sleep

Let’s start with Emma Sleep’s. It’s a simple, classic design with some fun modern twists, like the built-in storage compartments in the armrests, and the lush two-sided cushion design. Plus, it’s a spacious three-seater when you fold that baby up.

The Comfiest Sofa Bed: Koala

If you can’t quite fit a three-seater in your humble abode, you’ll be pleased to know the Koala Cushy Sofa Bed comes in three different sizes — 1.5, 2 and 3-seater options. According to one of our writer’s reviews, it’s as comfortable as it looks, “I slept like an absolute log. I can safely say that I have never slept so well on a floor in all my life.” Not bad, not bad.
