Customer comments about Encore 82" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

It looks great and functions well but it hurts to sit on it for too long (1 hour) and hard as a rock to sleep on. It is a non-standard size so puttings sheets on it is hard. We had guest sleep on the floor rather than on the sofa.

    Great piece in the basement entertainment room; we have a 50's jukebox and record collection so it goes with our vibe. Very functional and perfect for an overnight guest or movie watching. Of course, it's not as comfortable as a futon or guestbed BUT perfect if you have an office space or other room to put additional overnighters. The 3 separate back pieces have 3 folding levels-full up, angled and flat down. Wonderful design-very happy!

          Customer comments about Encore 82" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

          We bought this sofa to replace a Jennifer Convertible sleeper sofa. I love that it is so versatile and easy up keep. We have two boys, who love to lounge on it flat. The fabric is a little rough, but we put a blanket on the seat which helps protect the fabric as well. I think that over time the fabric will soften and we will be glad it was heartier when we bought it. We got the red one, which is an awesome color, and adds so much class to our small living room. People gasp when they walk in and see it! It is really well made and will withstand our boys for years to come. Dust and dirt do accumulate in the creases, but using the attachment on the vacuum sucks it all right up! Easy to care for! It is not too heavy to move and is a nice firm bed, too. The size flat is between a twin and a full, so one person will have plenty of room to sleep. There is room for three underbed storage boxes from the container store underneath.

          Customer comments about Encore 82" Convertible Sleeper Sofa:

          We bought two of these sofas for our new town home and just love the new look. We have them facing each other and put one panel down on one so that it looks different and allows us to view out the glass patio door that it is overlapping slightly. We love the color and the chrome legs. One wish is that it had additional panels on each side on the bottom that could be put up for a head rest when lounging on it as a sofa. Two pillows solve that problem.

            I bought this sofa for my cabin which is furnished in contemporary modern. The sofa is sturdy, folds down for a firm comfortable bed and is great for a quick nap. The materials are durable, the construction sturdy. I'm really pleased with everything about this sofa. I'm thinking I may get another one for the TV room in my house in Minneapolis.

                    A:

                    The Encore is a great sleeper option but its dimensions don't fit standard sheet dimensions. A queen fitted sheet with extra deep pockets is probably the best way to go. Queen sheets are 80" long and the deep pockets should work to accommodate the additional size of the Encore.

                  Hiya!

                  I am looking for this style but in orange color for our office in SF.

                  Is this possible to get custom color for this couch?

                  thank you,

                  Q:

                  I have this couch in an off white color that was offered a few years ago. Unfortunately it is now a bit stained and the color does not really go with my current decor. Is it possible to purchase a new cover in a different color?

                    Being able to fit the Encore into your airstream would depend on a few other dimensions as well. When laying flat, the Encore is 82w 46d 15h.

                  Q:

                  In terms of mattress sizes, would the dimensions of the Encore Sofa be equivalent to a full or queen sleeper? I'm just wondering if two adults can sleep on this.

                  Thanks!

                    The size of the Encore with the back down is actually between the size of a twin and a full size bed. The size when down is: 82" wide (the length of the actual sofa) by 46" deep. If you have any more questions, please let us know.

                  Q:

                  We are going to have to move our sofa to a new apartment, and since it was assembled for us here by Room & Board, can I get advice on how best to do our first move? I am basically wondering if the legs or leg frame can be removed. Does Room & Board have assembly directions they could email me or point me to?
                  Thanks.

                    For transporting your Encore, we recommend laying it flat, with the back down and shrink wrapping the seat down to the base. If you choose to disassemble, you will need an 8mm allen wrench. The bolts are a bit recessed on the underside of the sofa. As always, let us know if you have further questions.
