Love it! from Houston, TX on 01/07/2014 – Verified Buyer
I have only had this for 3 weeks, and no one has slept on it, yet. But I will speak to the features I am already familiar with, and I'll update later if anything needs to be edited. First, it feels somewhat like a bed when you sit on it, but I really like the bouncy effect. This may bother some consumers, as it's a tad different from your normal sofa feel. The blue color is really beautiful -- not too rich not too muted. Putting it together was a chore, as I did it solo, and it was more awkwardclumsy that difficult. I ran into one snag that may help others: when trying to slide the seat back onto the frame, each side has a metal sleeve that slides onto metal arms on the base, and you will HEAR it latchlock in place. One arm wasn't doing this, and I tried brute force unsuccessfully. I finally realized that there was a bolt inside that metal sleeve that wasn't fully screwed in -- that part was factory assembled, so I wasn't initially aware that it was there. But when something was clearly obstructing the path of the arm sliding into the sleeve, I felt around inside the sleeve and could feel the bolt slightly protruding. I simply tightened it with the allen wrench (or hex key) that came with the product. It then latched into place like the other arm had done on the first try. For a while there I was fearing a defect and would have to return it, but I'm glad I slowed down and used my brain instead of brawn! The back fabric panel isn't quite lining up with the velcro connection points, so I need to tweak that, as well. Most people will put the back of it facing a wall, I imagine. But my space is small, and I have to be creative about placement. So I may have to make some minor adjustments to get it to secure smoothly. It isn't the most sturdyhardy of furniture pieces, so please don't expect it to feel like you paid $1200 for it. But it's very functional, very pleasant to look at, and it won't swallow a smaller space like my old sofa. Incidentally, I bought this because the frame of my existing sofa, although in perfect functional condition, is upholstered in faux leather that my cats had destroyed inside of 8 months. So I hope the linen on this Rio piece will be more forgiving, if only by not being as noticeable so soon. The old sofa has white batting coming out of the clawed places on a deep chocolate covering...such an eyesore. (So I covered the frame with a slipcover and am donating it to a needy soul who'll give it a good home.)

Even better than I hoped! from Montreal, QC on 02/26/2014
Almost immediately after placing the order for this sofa, I regretted my decision ... I mean a blue sofa hardly fits in with every décor ... but this one did and then some! The material is not as turquoise as pictured, more of a subtle blue with flecks of being in the material that makes it fit in wherever. A big bonus for me is that at on those nights I arrive home from work just pooped, I flip it open, throw on a bed sheet and snuggle with my dog and cat while watching TV. Don't know who's happier for the wider surface to stretch out on, them or me. This gets a high five and two paws up!

Super comfy sleeper bed from Winnemucca, NV on 05/18/2014 – Verified Buyer
Everyone always rolls their eyes when they find out they'll be sleeping on a sleeper bed an for good reason, I've never slept on a comfortable one. This couch is different. As other posters mentioned, it's not the most comfortable couch but the coil mattress is incredibly comfortable for use as a bed which was the most important thing for us. The back support piece has come off multiple times for us but seems to be staying put after we took a mallet to pound it into place. The back of the couch has a fabric panel to cover but it isn't the prettiest thing in the world, I'm glad we have it up against a wall. Also, it can be slightly difficult to convert from couch to bed but once you get the hang of it, it's a piece of cake.

Great couch from Naugatuck, CT on 12/22/2013 – Verified Buyer
This is perfect for our apartment. We live on the 3rd floor of a three family house and we couldnt get a couch that was already put together up around the tight corners of our stairway. The delivery guys even brought it all the way up to my front door for me. SUPER easy to put together, i did it myself in maybe 30 minutes. It is a firm couch but that is what I like.

Fantastic furniture! from Verona, WI on 12/31/2013 – Verified Buyer
This is the most comfortable "sleeper sofa" I've encountered. The mattresses are innerspring, making for a great sofa *and* a great bed. it assembles quickly without tools, and looks like just a sofa until you unfold it. It's sturdy and trim, and I adore it.

Awesome for guests from Yucca valley, CA on 11/11/2014 – Verified Buyer
we bought this for our guest room/office. My husband and I test slept on it to see if we wanted to keep it. My husband is 6'3 and I am 5'5 it is perfect for two people since it is a full size bed. Do not expect a queen bed because that is not what it is! Comfort level it is great as a couch and a bed. I highly recommend it. It was simple to put together and simple to convert.

Excellent Product and Service from Malden, MA on 12/30/2013 – Verified Buyer
This sofa is exactly what I was looking for: A sleeper sofa that was affordable, did NOT look like a futon, and could fit an actual adult sized person. Plus, the neutral color is fantastic in any room.

It's OK from Xu'anthor- Galaxy Plenthox on 05/26/2015 – Verified Buyer
For the price, this sleeper sofa is amazing. It's comfortable to sleep on, and really brings the room together. However, if you are buying it, make sure you have a second person to help. The box is heavier, and assembly takes 2. It comes in a 6' box, really compact. Inside the box, everything comes disassembled, which is really beneficial if you're trying to get it through a smaller door. Every part came wrapped in plastic, so there were no defects whatsoever. Assembly took about 30 minutes with 2 people. My only complaints are considering the build. The excess fabric in the back is held back with 6 Velcro pieces, which end up producing a wavy effect in the back. The arm rests have about 1 cm of plush. And when relaxed into a bed, it slopes at about a 5% angle, but so far, I haven't rolled off. Other than that, it's a pretty sound sleeper sofa. For the money, it's a definite yes. Pros: Durable, looks great, FREE SHIPPING, great for college Cons: Instructions vague. Only pictures, no descriptions. Could use some more plush.

SOO Easy to Put Together! from Austin, TX on 04/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
I chose this sofa over some of the other convertible sofas that Wayfair offered, because one of the reviews said it was comfy... and i'm all about comfy! It is, actually, quite comfortable. Has adequate support for sitting, not too deep in the sitting cushion section (which is SO hard to find these days) so that I'm able to sit on the couch, have my feet on the floor and my back against the back. (I know, right?) It came right when the website said it would, minimal damage to the3 box, and none to the couch. It was packed pretty well. It was easy to put together as well, Just snapped together, really. I could've done it by myself, but it was DEFINITELY easier with two. Pros: great value, easy to put together, comfortable. Cons: One side of the bed is a bit higher than the other when folded out, but not so much that it makes sleeping a problem.

A Fine piece of furniture ! from Clearlake Park, CA on 06/26/2015 – Verified Buyer
What a beautiful blue ! - in fact, just about when my shipment was to arrive, I saw pictures posted by 2 buyers under recent reviews - I was quite shocked at the two completely opposite looking colors. The lighter version made my heart sink and I kept wondering if I should return the shipment straight at the door and not even bother to receive it and repackage it for return. Then came the Fedex guy who was extremely cordial and he volunteered to help me get the package indoor. The first thing I did was to sneak from a slightly damaged corner of the box and the relief I had , I can bare articulate. The fabric is textured linen, thickly interwoven, and i was soon smiling ear to ear. The instructions were quite simple, very logical I must say. Sleeper / Seating Comfort level : Firm and good. The seat is not low like a typical futon ; and the sofa as such doesnt look anywhere close to a futon. Only word of advice : Assemble the package in the room you intend to put it in. It will not enter a standard 3 feet doorway, as its a couple of inches wider . The "full" size wasnt really 'full' to 56", it was somewhere between extra large twin and full. Enjoy !
