    Promising review: "I spent months trying to find a couch for my new apartment. My new place is on the third floor with winding stairs. Plus, I may move again so rather than get new furniture every time, I opted for something durable/Versatile. So, my options were limited. I had to have a couch that came unassembled and can be reassembled, not too wide, and definitely not too heavy. Another detail is I have a dog, so it needed to be easy to clean! A lot of 'must-haves,' for one piece. Then this beauty showed up! Checked off all the boxes, And a few more! It was tough to bring it upstairs, but very easy to assemble. No 'new furniture stink.' Dog hair (corgi) doesn’t stick, spills easy to wipe away, and is comfy to lay on. I do use this quite a bit in my living room. I’ve even slept on it, no issues!" β€”Coffee&Corgis

The setting up was awesome: screw the feet on, and that's it!😁 It folds out and back easily and looks about a width of a twin bed. It feels reasonably solid and sturdy, but I'll have a better idea in time. I can say without a doubt that the cats love it. I ordered a pet-proof throw and hope it arrives soon."β€”R2

I've used it for guests sleeping on the floor, and we use it all the time as a 'mini-couch' for my youngest son to sit on while we watch movies. Update: We've been using this regularly (both as cozy movie-watching seat and extra mattress for guests) for over a year now, and it's still like new-- very sturdily made.

It is kind of tough to put together by yourself, but I did it alone in about an hour. A second pair of hands would have made it go faster. I have had guests sleep on it and say it's fine.

    Promising review: "TI love this futon! I worry a lot about futons being sturdy because they are so small, but this one has held up through a move and two adults, a small dog, and a large dog all on it at once. Not only is it sturdy, but it’s incredibly comfortable." β€”Kassidy

    a brown couch that folds up and down along the sides

    Promising review: "This was very easy to assemble, and I did it myself. I chose the brown, and it's a nice chocolatey brown. I had a daybed in my tiny guest room that just swallowed the whole room, so I got rid of it for this futon lounge. The futon is a smaller profile, and even when folded down all the way, it still takes up less floor space than that daybed, yet can easily and comfortably sleep an adult. My photo doesn't do it justice. It's a richer brown than what my photo shows. And I appreciate the sturdiness of the metal frame and secure footing." β€”Marcy DP

    18. A contemporary-style futon because your space should be a sophisticated as you. Bonus: This promises to be easy to put in a seated, lounging, and sleeping position.

    A grey futon in a reviewer's home

    Promising review: "Got here super quick, opened it, and it took me five mins to assemble. It's a bit smaller than I had pictured in my head, but that's on me because the measurements are stated clearly. For my needs, it's perfect as a temporary solution until we purchase an L-shaped sofa here with the roomies. We are all very average size and weight people, so we should be okay chilling on it. It's sturdy, easily turns into a futon if you felt like napping. " β€”Vic Vega

    Price: $163.79

Hidden compartment underneath where the bottom legs are initially stored, but you can use it for other stuff later! LOL." β€”Ciana

    Price: $165.71+ (available in four colors)

    20. And a black faux leather memory foam futon for a very luxe look. This futon promises to be easily adjustable and doesn't take up too much space.

    A faux-leather futon in a reviewer's home

    Promising review: "I love this futon. I put this in my guest room/movie room, and it serves its purpose perfectly! The arms fold up as armrests, and there's three settings for the back to fold down, depending on how much you want to recline. It's about the size of a full-size bed and is actually pretty comfortable to sleep on! Everything folds flat, and this is also pretty lightweight, so you can move everything around. Assemble it correctly, and it is very sturdy and comfortable. This is a great add-on to any guest/entertainment room!" β€”Ravon Rayne

    Price: $299.99
