The Manhattan Convertible Lounger is a great piece of furniture that can be used as both a sofa and a bed making it worth the money. This versatile product sells for $360 which is more than your normal futon but it is also much more stylish and comfortable. The product comes in three colors: khaki, oyster, and black.
I chose the khaki and it blends nicely with the furniture I already owned. The microfiber cover is soft and warm. It always looks neat and there are no pillows to fluff. There is eight inches of foam filling the lounger to make it soft and comfortable. The legs are made out of solid wood which looks very rich. The frame is made of metal which makes it feel very sturdy both when you are sitting and lying on it.
The lounger has a “Click-Clack” mechanism so that conversion from a sofa to a bed only takes a couple seconds. I can easily convert it by myself. There is some assembly required but the instructions were very clear and I was also able to do this on my own in about a half hour with minimal tools which were included. It is quite heavy once it is put together so make sure to assemble it near the place you plan to use it. Keep this in mind if you are transporting it from the store to home as well.
The cover is removable so that you can keep it looking fresh and clean. Dry cleaning is recommended for the cover.
As a bed, the product is roomy enough to allow me to stretch out. I found that the microfiber and the foam took awhile of use to soften up and be comfortable to sleep on. I would not use it as my primary bed but it is nice to have around for guests.
The arm rests are not attached and can be removed when you want to use the product as a bed. They are a little wobbly when using it as a sofa but it would not be comfortable to sleep with them on so I suppose there is no other option.
This lounger met my expectations. It looks rich and does exactly what it was designed to do. It quickly converts from sofa to be making it the versatile product it is trying to be. The firmness of the foam is not much of a drawback when you consider all of the benefits.
