  1. #Details#
    RAPID by name, Rapid by Nature... designed to be the most user-friendly futon sofabed there is.

    From 2-seater sofa to 14" high full size double bed and back again in just seconds.  The RAPID uses our Advaans Futon System.  

    This means all you need to do is pull on the front to give a bed, lift and push the seat and its back as a sofa again.  The unique duo futon folds itself so there's no heavy moving of the mattress and the two-part design avoids curving the futon over the top of the backrest so (unlike all other pull-forward two seater futon sofa beds without our Advaans system) we can make the futon nice and thick - giving a comfy sofa or bed.  You can also opt for a generous foam core for extra comfort and durability.

    Since the RAPID operates from the front you can tuck it in to small spaces without the need to get to the sides or back.

    Assembly is simplicity itself - just three bolts.Add upholstered arms if you like, but even these simply slot into place keeping everything nice and rapid.  Add our spacious solid wood, wheeled store-drawer to fit under the seat and you've even got space for all the bedding too.

    Designed and made 100% here at Sit and Sleep from European sourced timber from certified sustainable forests to minimise it's environmental impact the RAPID follows our aim of offering British designed and made, stylish but practical sofa beds at sensible prices.  

    The only slow part of the RAPID? - That would be choosing from nine base finishes or which one of the fabulous colours to choose from in our luxurious easycare Prime fabric.
