Choose to have removable, washable covers for an extra £17. In prime midnight (which was recommended as Navy is Dryclean only!!) Ordered in Natural untreated Pine. Also opted to upgrade to the PolyLux Mattress. Perfect 👌 So comfortable!! Will be good for both Adults and Children!! Fun to assemble with only 3 brackets!! Very well made, and looks fantastic!! I would definitely recommend SitandSleep, and definitely good to speak to them before ordering!! Worth every penny paid!!

Excellent comfort and stylish. Fit for purpose. Only very tiny niggle was a few splintery bits around the screw holes.

The classic futon was ordered in desperation to make sure that we had somewhere for our daughter to sleep and it fulfilled the requirements beautifully. Comfortable, easy to put together and most importantly fitted a double bed in the limited space we had. Highly recommend - ordering and delivery were very simple thank you sit and sleep.
