August 20, 2012 (FPRC) --

With the London Olympics and the Queens Diamond Jubilee, 2012 has already seen a busy summer in the UK. Thousands of families have made the most of the festivities by travelling to stay with friends and relatives. But the summer isn’t over yet! What to do when the hordes descend and you’ve run out of sleeping options? That’s where Sit ‘n’ Sleep, the UK’s leading supplier of futon sofa beds come in.

With a range of different futons, sofa beds, futon mattresses and sleeping solutions to match any situation and budget, Sit ‘n’ Sleep are the ideal choice for furnishing your house for the summer and subsequent holiday seasons. So if you’re stuck wondering which sofa bed will suit you, why not talk to the knowledgeable staff at Sit ‘n’ Sleep for expert advice.

So, whether you are looking for something to take away with you for the summer holiday camping trip or in preparation of an invasion by the family – Sit ‘n’ Sleep has something to suit.

The Zipit foam roll up bed is a ‘best buy’ for the summer and is ideal to take camping or for just throwing out on the floor at home for a comfortable extra sleeping surface. The Classic futon and Traditional futon pine base futon sofa beds are perfect spare room sofas and occasional guest beds. Both models are available in a selection of widths and are particularly suited for rooms with limited space and/or restricted access. The Classic futon is a typical low sleeping height futon model but the Traditional futon, when converted to bed mode, provides a sleeping height close to that of a conventional bed which may appeal to the more ‘mature’ guest! The Gallery futon is ever-popular, offering an elegant piece of furniture at home in any number of different rooms whilst providing that all important extra bed when family or friends come to visit. Made from sustainable hardwood from managed plantations the Gallery futon has an attractive stained and lacquered finish and is available as a 2 or 3 seater sofa bed. Both sizes provide a 4’6” (137cm) bed width. A matching chair is also available for this model (does not convert to a bed) and Storage Drawers are available for the 2 and 3 seater sizes.

For a more contemporary look, Sit ‘n’ Sleep offers 2 ranges from INNOVATION of Denmark. Both the iStyle and iCasual sofabed ranges offer minimalist Scandinavian design and style using top quality materials and provide exceptional comfort. If you are looking for a top-end futon/sofa bed that fits perfectly with modern interior décor, these are the ranges for you. The iStyle sofa bed range has pocket-spring sitting/sleeping surfaces so are constructed and feel very similar to a quality conventional bed mattress, whereas iCasual sofa beds uses high specification futon mattresses (some have a central core of pocket-springs for even more comfort) and can be extensively customised with options of frame colours, mattress type, fabrics/colours, Detachable Covers, Frame Covers, cushions, arms (on some models) etc.
