When you’re shopping for a sofa, remember your friends. And Mother. And the babysitter. And everyone else who could be staying overnight sometime. Choose a Hide-A-Bed sofa — it’s made only by Simmons.

Every Hide-A-Bed sofa has true living room sofa styling. And what a range — everything from Traditional to Contemporary, Mediterranean to Early American. You have your choice of options, too — the kind of cushion filling you prefer, arm covers and skirting.

You can even get casters — so you can move your Hide-A-Bed sofa. The bed is the most comfortable you’ll find in any convertible sofa. (And the only one with a full-length mattress.) You can have a famous Simmons mattress or the even more luxurious Simmons Beautyrest mattress.

Hide-A-Bed sofas are priced from $200 to about $800. These days, no living room sofa is worth the price unless it hides a bed.
