Oftentimes, the frame of a single sofa bed chair will be crafted out of solid or manufactured wood or metal. Design expert Frances Merrill recommends opting for a linen, cotton, or poly blend upholstery if you're looking for a fabric that's breathable yet modern. You'll also find faux leather, suede, and velvet options that may be stuffed with sponge, high-density padding, or sinuous springs for comfort. With an easy handle and bottom pulley device, there will likely be a fold-down or extendable design mechanism that allows the single sofa bed chair to recline and go completely flat to make it into a convertible bed.
