A sophisticated and individual futon sofa bed, the AVANT has it all...
Conversion from sofa to bed and back again takes seconds due to our Advaans Futon System - Pull on the front and it folds itself out as a bed. Lift and push and it's back as a sofa again. The unique duo-futon automatically folds itself and the parks neatly at the rear leaving a stylish sofa. As with all our Advaans System Futons, the conversion is operated from the front so, with no need for side or rear access and the AVANT can fit into tight spaces.
The two-part duo-futon also avoids folding the mattress over the top of the backrest and this allows us to make it lovely and thick, Filled with our supreme futon filling as standard, or you can upgrade to a thick foam core for even more comfort.
Lift the front plinth, to reveal the AVANT's big secret - space, lots of it. Under the seat area we've managed to design in a huge storage compartment discretely hidden by the base frame. Large enough for lots of large things or opt for our wheeled store drawer for keeping bedding or small items in.
The hand-made frame has no visible screws or bolts as a sofa and gives a full 40cm /16" high bed. The AVANT frame can also be stained in eight different wood finishes. Slot in upholstered arms give a little more support if you need it and the AVANT is available in a wonderful range of colours in our Prime fabric, comfortable and luxurious but tough and easy to clean.
Designed and produced at Sit and Sleep the AVANT is made from European sourced timber from certified, sustainable forests to minimise it's environmental impact. The AVANT does not use an imported frame or mechanism.
