Argos Tristan Sofabed
Advantages: Keeping the shape quite well, good in a small room, nice colour
Disadvantages: Shows every stain, difficult to sleep on
I bought this sofabed because I didn't have much money at the time I moved in my new place and wanted to use my Argos card to get 6 months intrest free credit. So I went for Argos.
My requirements were:
-not metal base when opened as a bed (those looked not very strong)
-I didn't want pillows with it as they can get too soft and not comfortable with time
-could not afford a more expensive sofabed
So this was perfect for me.
I bought the chocolate one, which fits the colour of my living room perfectly.
It's not very big, but enough for me and my daughter. Though for a bigger family it would not be enough.
- after sitting on it for awhile it gets too soft as the top part slides out and that makes it really not comfortable. (Though this didn't change with time, I can't feel it getting any worse after 4 years of use, so that's a good point)
- and it's not that good idea when you have kids. Every stain shows on it. Next time I'll go for a patterned one. My daughter always puts something on it which I have to clean and the water (doesn't matter how small) always dries with white line around the patch. So by now it's covered, which gives me trouble everytime to pull it back to place.
When you open it the hole where the matress was becomes empty, which means you can't sit down comfortably watching tv, doesn't matter how many pillows you put behind your back you will still fall into the hole. Not very pleasant. And the part closest to the base is very hard, so we found out that it's better to sleep on it the other way, that place is at least soft.
As we only use it as a sofabed when we have guests it's ok, but it would not work for me if this was my bed.
Summary: Great sofabed for the price, with some managable problems
