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.
