Simmons Maxi-Pedic Hide-a-Bed is a great piece of furniture to have in your living room or basement. Mine opens up to a comfortable Simmons queen size mattress, which can sleep 2-3 people. The sofa has three comfortable seat cushions, and two color coordinating throw pillows. A sofa bed can come in handy for overnight guests without having to take up the space of an extra bedroom if you don't have one. It is very important to have a comfortable mattress for your guests so they don't have stiff backs or difficulty sleeping. I have owned a previous sofabed that had a thin, uncomfortable mattress. I had to sleep on it one night, and ended up with a stiff back. Simmons is a well-known brand for mattresses, so you can trust this brand with sofabeds.
