Why our sleep experts loved it

The Livia Sofa Bed from Bensons for Beds is a stylish and practical option for those looking for a low-priced sofa bed. The click-clack design and wooden feet add to its aesthetic appeal, and it comes with a free five-year guarantee as standard which helps highlight the manufacturers belief that this will stand the test of time. So who will the sofa bed suit? Well, this product is available in three different colours, which allows customers to choose the one that best fits their decor. The colours are fairly modern too, so should suit most modern room designs. This sofa bed is a perfect option for those who have limited space and are looking for a versatile piece of furniture that can be used as a sofa during the day and as a bed at night and can also prove to be a great option for those who have guests staying over occasionally. The reviews suggest that the sofa bed is comfortable enough for guests to sleep on, and is a good option for a spare room or guest room but would typically advise against sleeping on it for a prolonged period of time. Let's take a closer look at what other people thought about their purchase and see if it will be right for you.

Getting the negative feedback out of the way first, it seems that some reviews are mixed, with some customers finding the Livia comfortable and perfect for small spaces while others finding it a bit too hard and narrow. The width of the bed when it's opened is a concern for some as it is slimmer than your average bed. Other complaints 

Were around the quality, where one person stated that the sofa bed has a defect where one leg screw hole was blocked, however, Bensons for Beds was able to rectify these issues directly with the consumer thanks to the long 5-year guarantee. Additionally, there were a couple of customers who have also mentioned that the sofa bed is a bit lumpy to lie on. 

Customers have praised the Livia Sofa Bed for its practicality, as it is a perfect option for those who have limited space and are looking for a versatile piece of furniture that can be used as a sofa during the day and as a bed at night. This makes it ideal for small apartments, guest rooms, and spare rooms where space is limited. Additionally, many customers have praised the sofa bed for its stylish design, with its wooden feet adding to its aesthetic appeal. Some customers also mentioned that the sofa bed was an excellent value for the money, with one customer stating that it is "more comfortable than any other [sofa bed] I have seen for the price." Some customers also found it comfortable and cosy to sleep on. Finally there are plenty of people who have praised the product for its comfort, style and value for money.

Overall, the Livia Sofa Bed from Bensons for Beds is a practical and stylish option for those looking for a low-priced sofa bed. The reviews are mixed but those that were not satisfied had a strong 5 year guarantee to fall back on while those with positive reviews were able to get a very affordable and low-budget sofa bed that looks far more expensive than it is.

Looks smart as a sofa. Easy to convert from a sofa to a bed and vice versa. Fits well into a variety of rooms from the morning room, to living room to a bedroom. Suitable for children or for a short stay for an adult. Ideal as an occasional bed. Could be put next to a traditional bed. If kept as sofa, with the back of the sofa away from the bed and the base next to the bed making a 'cot like' safe place for a child to sleep and not fall out. Came with a mattress protector just for this item which would be used to keep the sofa bed in good condition. Perhaps add a little more padding as a mattress for an adult to make it more comfortable for an overnights stay.

I absolutely love my new Sofa Bed it's very comfortable and looks really good in my lounge. I picked they Mustard colour as it would link in with the turquoise and brown & mustard within my blinds. The things which disappointed me was: 1. I had to pay for delivery 2. I had to ask a friend of mine to assemble it as I am disabled and couldn't do it myself. 3. The delivery drivers said they didn't have the phone numbers so I could phone and ask the shop / dispatch place about assembling the sofa bed. 4. When I bought the bed the salesman never mentioned to me that the sofa~bed needed assembling, he did mention where the legs are hidden in a zipper

It is a very practical sofa/bed. It is easy to convert it from sofa to bed that my 5 and 3 year old grandchildren can do it. It is comfortable to sleep on and a good size for a single person and a snug fit for two. The shop staff were great, help me measure the sofa and answers my questions. The two men that delivered it were lovely, rung me when I was next and arrived on time.

Great value for money, the colour was exactly what I was looking for and it is perfect for me to sit on because it is not too deep and my feet sit on the floor. Not been used as a bed yet but if the sitting experience is anything to go by, I am sure it will be perfect for family and friends when they stay over. Easy instructions and very easy for 2 people to assemble

I love my sofa bed. The material and colour (teal) are great and it looks a lot more expensive than it was. Very good value for money. Am considering buying a second one in grey. Don't know why they show the yellow version as this is the least good colour. Click-clack design is very simple to use and it looks good up or down. Immediately occupied by my teenage son.

Loving the sofa, I bought the teal colored one as it matched my room but really liked the yellow one. It is easy to convert into a spare bed for visitors and was reasonably priced. I would recommend Bensons to anyone looking for a bed, sofa or any bedroom furniture. I have bought all my beds and mattresses from them. Excellent quality and service every time.

So practical and makes a really comfortable bed - a bit firm but it will wear in I'm sure! A great hit with the dachshunds too, especially with the furry throw! Really easy to convert to a bed and the clic clac conversion means no mechanism to get tangled in if you're a limbo dancing dachshund! Most if all staff at Bensons were so helpful and friendly!

Great sofa bed - nice teal colour. Easy to assembly. Click/clack mechanism really easy to use. I have bought this to be an extra bed for my grandchildren - really great, but it would be a bit small as a double bed for two adults.

This sofa has fitted in well to the space we have. We we're pleased that this product has a decent guarantee, not offered by many manufacturers. We haven't used it as a sofa bed so cannot comment on that yet. Pleased so far.

The sofa bed is perfect for our spare room, perfect size and lovely shade of blue. For some reason I thought it was velour but more a cotton looking material. It will serve us well for grandchildren staying over..
