The Difference Between Old and New Sofa Sleepers

Do you remember the first sofa sleeper you owned? Chances are that old relic was used only in case of emergency because it was so uncomfortable! If that’s your idea of a sofa sleeper today, it’s time to learn why there is no comparison to modern versions.


Years ago, a pull-out or folding sofa bed was framed by hard metal bars and the mattress was the old spring-style construction. The mattress sat atop a wire framework that would sag in the middle over time. This contraption was heavy and difficult to open.

The Comfort Sleeper by American Leather is completely different. For one, these upscale and contemporary sofa sleepers use the patented Tiffany 24/7™ Sleep System to provide lasting support. There are no bars underneath, no springs in the mattress and consequently, no sagging in the middle! It’s also incredibly easy to open with little effort.


Back in the old days, a sofa sleeper was a bulky piece of furniture that took several muscle-bound men to move. A full-size mattress was the standard. The hefty construction made it difficult to fit into limited space.

Today, Comfort Sleeper™ sofas come in all sizes, with mattresses from King all the way down to Cot-sized, providing more space for sleep (80 inches of sleeping surface as opposed to the traditional 70 inches) while taking up less area in your room. This is because, unlike those old sleeper sofas with a big gap between the bed frame and back cushions, Comfort Sleeper™ mattresses extend further back. These modern pull-out beds can be disassembled in order to fit through tight openings and are designed to fit into small spaces as easily as large ones.

These aren’t just any pull-out sofa beds; there are three options in mattresses: the amazing comfort of Tempur-Pedic®, ultra-soft gel or the slightly firmer Premier mattress. Which pull-out couch would provide the best support for your guests?


Remember when that sofa sleeper in your home didn’t get used much and when you did pull out the bed, a whole family of dust bunnies came along with it?

That doesn’t happen anymore, thanks to a special dust barrier provided by the shielded cloth incorporated with Comfort Sleeper™ mattresses. This extra layer of protection means no more embarrassing dust bunnies when you pull out the bed for guests.
