Let’s talk Futons.
NYC: Arguably one of the greatest places to visit in the world. You’ve moved here, and definitely don’t have room for a guest bed — you probably barely have room for your own bed, right?
Picking a sofa that can double as a home for all of your friends who are itching to visit is critical.
We put together a list of futons that we want to pretend are cali king worthy but still will do the job and are practical! PS, if you’re looking for a sofa bed rather than a futon, we have a post on the best sofa beds here.
We’re going to introduce you to three futons, a low, middle, and high price point.
If you’re looking for a perfect affordable futon, start with the Ikea Karlaby Futon (we found it used, here, for $200!) We think they updated the name (but admittedly we don’t know Swedish, but you can also find it here under the name Ikea Balkarp). Either way it’s simple, affordable, and will definitely suit a guest who visits!
If you want to spend a little more, but not break the bank, check out the CB2 Flex futon. It has a sleek silhouette, it’s low to the ground, and gives a nice modern vibe. We love that it’s a great looking futon, and still practical! PS, if you want it gently used, we found it here for $559.
Finally, for you big spenders, Room & Board makes a great futon that we love, called the Eden convertible! It retails for $999 but you can actually grab it for $300 here! They also have one called the deco, which is their most updated version of this futon, and you can check it out on right here.
