Blu Dot furniture (born in 1997) was founded by John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks. The firm began as a loose collaboration of three college friends trained in architecture and art, based on the premise that design should be affordable. The partners chose furniture as the subject of interest and opened a studio and operations in Minneapolis in 1996. Blu Dot has begun to realize their vision with a collection of over 40 furniture pieces that are both elegantly abstract and unambiguously functional. Blu Dot pieces are in the permanent collections of several museums, have been seen on the sets of well-known television shows such as Friends and ER, and have won numerous national and international awards. The furniture collection is distributed around the world.

Blu Dot Diplomat Sleeper Sofa
Most comfortable Blu Dot sleeper sofa; fabric not particularly durable

I needed to buy this because a standard sofa wouldn't fit through my entryway. Since this one has a really cool mechanism to fold out to a queen size bed, it ends up being the size of a queen mattress, which did fit. It's comfortable for those who like to sit upright and like a firm seat. The other Blu Dot sleeper sofa (One Night Stand) is really, really firm. The seat cushion is on the shorter side--I can't sit Indian-style on it, though I can cuddle with my boyfriend on it (we're both thin).
