    Customer comments about Elke 79" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

    I wanted a sofa in my home office that could double as a guest room if I needed an extra place to accommodate guests. The primary function of this piece for my home is a sofa. I have never slept on it nor had a guest sleep on it yet. It is comfortable to sit on but I would not consider using it as my primary living room or tv watching couch.

    This is an attractive piece for a home office. It is very comfortable to sit on and sleep on. The fabric gets a little wrinkly looking and not as sharp after being sat on but it seems to be bouncing back fairly well.

        Customer comments about Elke 79" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

        I purchased the Elke several months ago. I have had several out of town visitors who wanted to stay in my guest room. Since my space is fairly small, I needed a piece of furniture that was fairly compact. It is easy to assemble the bed. The Elke is fairly firm, but my guests reported that they slept well on the couch.

        Better than expected

            Best Uses

              Customer comments about Elke 79" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

              This is even better than expected for small spaces and folks with mobile lives. The bottom seat lifts out easily and the back folds down onto the leg base so that this can be moved in two flat pieces. It also has storage space under the bottom seat where you can put the two back pillows. Once you roll the bottom seat out, the storage space appears.

              The back pillows are comfortable, the seat is firm. The fabric is nice to the touch. I haven't had guests sleep on it yet.

              This gets a 5 for versatility and convenience.

                    Love r&b, was shopping for a modern sofa/sleeper/daybed/futonish item. Fell in love with the ease of the transition from cool couch to sleeper. Once it was home it had a deep dip in it, spoke to our sales rep (props to Broc, he's awesome) he sent out a team to review the product, found an odd spring damage, ordered another ... BOOM, new one arrived and it's perfect, just what we wanted!
                    Fabric is larger weave, hitting that more modern trend, loved the color ... black and brown woven
                    very comfortable to hand out on

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Loved the "A" team that r&b sent out!

                      We love the design and function of this sofa sleeper. Looks great in our small office and very comfortable to sit on. Converts to bed very easily and much nicer than the old dorm style futon that we've had in the past. The only complaint is that if you sleep or sit on the cushions, the fabric will wrinkle easily and needs to be smoothed out with the swipe of a hand upon getting up.

                        This sofa arrived just days before our 2 kids arrived home for the holidays, we had just moved to a loft style one bedroom condo in the city after a big downsize from a house in the suburbs. The sofa was so perfect for a guest bed and so stylish too. Very easy to set up and break down from sofa to bed. Well made and comfortable for sleeping. I use a quilted queen size mattress pad over it to give it extra padding before I put the sheets on. You will love this sofa!

We had guests (two adults) sleep on it for three nights in a row and they said it was comfortable. I have not noticed any problems with the cusions or fabric as of yet.

                                  The sleep surface of Elke measures 54x79 which makes the queen sized sheet at 60x80 the best option. Full sheets only accommodate a mattress or sleep surface measuring 54x75.

                                  A:

                                  The Elke fabric is 70% Viscose, 18% Linen & 12% Polyester. Viscose is a fiber similar to Rayon. We do not treat any of our fabrics with scotch guard. To care for this fabric we would recommend using a solvent cleaner rather than soap & water. The Eden & Encore sofas are 100% Polyester which would be easier to spot clean as is the Mario. I hope this information helps you out. As always, feel free to ask another question or call one of our Design Associates at 800.301.9720.

                                  The size of the Elke is between a twin and a full so it would be a cozy for two adults.

                                  The Elke sleeper sofa base is removable, if necessary. If you live in a local market near one of our stores we offer a fit check service; our Delivery Associates can measure your space to ensure that the furniture you are interested in will fit.

                                Q:

                                Can the back be detached easily from the frame after installation? I am not sure the sofa will fit through my door fully assembled, and want to be able to take it apart if I move.

                                  The back doesn't detach but for fit through the doorway you could lay the back down and eliminate much of the height. The base could be removed if necessary but if there is space to maneuver on either side of the door, most sofas can be notched through a doorway. Let us know if you have more questions.

                                How much does the Elke 79" sleeper weigh? - I'm always concerned about being able to move furniture myself. Also, to flip the back cushion does the sleeper have to be moved away from the wall if it's positioned against a wall?

                                  The Elke sleeper sofa weighs approximately 150 lbs. You do need to pull the sofa away from the wall about 6 inches to flip down the back cushion.

                                  The seat cushion pulls forward on the sofa base. Then the back flips forward to create one level. Additional images below the main product page image will help visually on how this works. Click on orange arrow on the right side (next to zoom button) to scroll through for more images.

                                  On the Elke convertible sofa web product page just below the main product image there is a series of additional images. Next to the zoom feature there is an orange arrow button allowing you to scroll to the right through those additional images. The very last image may offer some visual assistance on how those legs fold back and are stored. Contact us at 800.301.9720 for further assistance.

                                  The Elke is available only in the three colors graphite, natural and black. Hope one of these might work for you.

                                  The sleep surface is 54x79 so queen would be the size to use. A queen mattress is 60x80. Good question - thank you.
