Orlando, FL, June 18, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- FutonPlanet.com has introduced a new type of futon that looks more like a traditional sofa than the typical futon sleeper. The new futon called a Convert-A-Couch
is designed for the consumer who wants the functionality and comfort of a quality futon, but prefers a sofa look.
"Many shoppers would not consider a futon because they do not like the futon look," says Rima LeBlanc of FutonPlanet.com a member site of LeBlanc Global. "The Convert-A-Couch has brought forth a 'futon in disguise' and with it has opened up the futon market to a whole new line of customers."
Available in different shades and colors the Convert A Couch sofa bed is upholstered in micro fiber making it soft and easy to clean. Like the old Castro convertibles, the new Convert A Couch back portion is laid flat to form a full size bed. The cushion, armrests, front and back are all upholstered making this futon sleeper look like a sofa. The upholstered cushion, which is actually a futon mattress, is used for both sitting and sleeping. In the sofa position it forms the seat and back, while in the bed positions it takes standard full size sheets and sleeps two.
Unlike the traditional sofa bed, this new format completely eliminates the tragic 'bar-in-the-back' syndrome that has plagued guests for years. Because the futon mattress is thick and substantial, most guests will find a noticeable improvement over any traditional pull-out sofa sleeper.
Futon Planet ships their Convert-A-Couch sleeper directly to any home in the continental United States and the shipping is included in the cost of the product making this one of the most affordable alternatives to traditional futons and sofa beds alike.
