After COVID-19 hit the United States, I spent several months staying on the sleeper sofa in my mom’s apartment. Many other Americans, especially young adults, have also had to move back in with family members-but space and spare bedrooms are not a luxury that most have. Enter the sleeper sofa: a flexible solution for the time being, and a piece worth investing in for future overnight guests.

When you think of a sleeper sofa, visions of a lumpy, brown loveseat in a modestly priced hotel (or your grandma’s basement) may spring to mind. These options, my friends, are not that. Homeowners and overnight guests rejoice-these sofas look good when folded up, and are comfy to boot. Take a peek at our top on-trend, multitasking picks:
