Mini review and guide to the IKEA Manstad sofa bed/ Manstad sleeper sofa
The IKEA Manstad sofa bed is all about functionality and practicality. As far as usability review goes, the configuration is that of a 3 seater sofa with a chaise longue attached. It’s solid enough to be an everyday sofa but contains not one, but two hidden gems concealed beneath its seat cushions. The pull out bed (which fits 2 grown adults quite comfortably) is easy to access from under the 3 seater section. There’s also a hidden storage unit located under the chaise longue section, perfect for stashing a set of sheets to instantly transform the sofa into a bed. One important note in this review - the IKEA Manstad convertible sofa was launched as a next generation Fågelbo (available at IKEA from 2004 - 2008) and the Friheten (2016 - current) is designed as the successor to the Manstad. These three IKEA sofas look a lot alike but their dimensions are different, as are some of the details (the Manstad has 3 back cushions) so please don’t make the mistake of thinking that the covers are interchangeable (they’re not!).
