In the run up to Christmas, we all worry about space and whether or not we have enough of it to house all of our family and friends over the festive period.

One thing to seriously consider investing in a good quality sofa bed that can be used as a place to sit as well as to sleep. You can use it as your main living room sofa, or if you have an office or a guest room – the perfect room to house an extra bed. 

Traditionally, sofa beds have been known to be uncomfortable and not particuarly attractive, however nowadays there are lots of great options that will tick all your boxes. Below are a few of our favourites.

Rupert 2 seater sofa bed, £2,200

Habitat Rupert Sofa Bed

This gorgeous Rupert sofa bed is upholstered in plush velvet and has generous seat and back cushions, feather and fibre filled to make the sofa ultra comfortable. 

It's available in lots of colours but we love this deep aubergine colour – it's very autumnal! 

Oliver chair bed, £279

Dunelm Oliver Sofa Bed

If space is at a premium and you don't need a full size sofa bed, then this chair bed from Dunelm could be the answer. It has a retro-inspired design and has an easy-to-use fold out mechanism.

It's complete with three adjustable positions for sitting and sleeping, and includes a foam filled pillow for extra support.

Dream sofa bed, £1,595

The seat cushions of this sofa, which become the mattress when folded down are made of foam. The foam acts like springs, moulding to the body for a supported sleep – perfect!

Available as a two and three seater, the Sofia sofa bed from Made screams luxury. It's easy to pull out thanks to a metal action mechanism and it features a slim 6cm matress, but don't be fooled – your guests will sleep perfectly well.
