The corner sofa, which looks presentable and has good functionality, is becoming more and more popular. A large corner sofa for the living room is very roomy, does not take up much space, if properly located, and can also be used as a comfortable place for receiving guests, and as a full-fledged sleeping place.
Folding corner sofa — design options
If this piece of furniture is purchased for the purpose of daily use as a bed, great attention should be paid to the choice of the mechanism for its transformation. The most popular is the mechanism, which is called «Eurobook». The sofa unfolds as follows: the lower part is pushed forward, and the upper part is lowered into its place. Everything is easy and simple.
Another common and convenient layout method is called «dolphin», which is designed specifically for a large corner sofa bed. In such a piece of furniture there is a special retractable unit, which is located under the main seat. This block moves forward and is fixed next to the sofa seat at the required height. The transformation happens quickly and effortlessly.
There is such a mechanism as «accordion». The sofa unfolds forward in the form of an accordion, creating a wide bed. The advantage of this design is that it takes up little space when assembled. Minus — there should be enough space in front of the sofa to fit it unfolded. Therefore, the «accordion» is not suitable for a narrow room.
There is also such a transformation option as the “French folding bed”, but it is completely unsuitable for everyday use. This sofa is good for receiving rare guests.
Features of choosing a corner sofa
When choosing a sofa, you need to pay attention to the quality of its upholstery. Upholstered furniture upholstered in natural fabric will be ideal for the home. Of the fillers, batting and high-quality spring blocks would be a good option. You need to take an interest in the frame of the sofa. Metal is the most durable and strong, but also the most expensive. A good choice for home use is a solid wood frame made of beech, birch or oak. The cheapest is a chipboard frame, but it is also the most unreliable. In addition, chipboard may well cause an allergic reaction.
It is very important to choose the right shape of the corner sofa, because it is difficult to rearrange it from place to place. Therefore, such a piece of furniture should clearly fit into the corner intended for it.
