Mechanisms for transforming mini sofas
A compact mini-sofa can be both stationary and non-separable, as well as a transformer. Depending on the transformation mechanism, mini-sofas come in three main types: folding, unfolding and retractable or roll-out.
- An improved click-clack transformation in folding mini-sofas was created on the basis of the well-known «book». A distinctive feature of this design is the additional backrest positions. Therefore, such models of sofas have three positions: lying, reclining and sitting. To expand the sofa, you need to raise the seat to a characteristic click and lower it, getting a bed.
- Folding mini-sofas most often have an accordion mechanism. This design has a flat, comfortable place to sleep, it is very easy to fold and unfold by pulling the bottom of the seat. This sofa when folded takes up very little space, and under the seat there is a drawer for bed linen. Mini sofa «accordion» meets with and without armrests, which is very convenient and safe for the children’s room.
- A roll-out mini sofa is especially popular due to its lightness and ease of unfolding. A special strap is hidden in the seat, by pulling which you can easily roll the sofa forward. The rest will roll out behind the first part of the sofa, and when unfolded, you get a flat bed, but it is located quite low, which is not always convenient. The downside of this sofa is the lack of a box for linen.
- The retractable eurobook mini-sofa is also in great demand today due to its strong and durable transformation mechanism. To unfold it, you need to push the seat of the sofa forward, and lay the back in the open space. A flat and secure place to sleep, a box for linen, the absence of armrests — these are the advantages that distinguish these mini-sofas from others. In addition, such a mini-sofa can be placed close to the wall, which will save space in a small room.
