Hippo: Sofa and Double Mattress

Hippo Sofa

Like all Karup Design products offers a modern style with a lot of versatility. We think you’ll agree it’s functional and has potential for all sorts of activities.

  • Most noteworthy, the fabric of the mattress has a hand finish to a high standard.
  • A choice of fabric colours is also on offer. Please look at the options below and click to zoom.
  • The Hippo is 25 cm thick so comfortable for many potential uses such as Yoga or Massage.

Hippo Sofa thickness

  • The thickness of Hippo makes it easy to relax and enjoy reading or gaming, or maybe a nap.
  • A comfortable mattress for family or guests to have some fun, and when fun is over and tired, sleep.
  • Easy to turn from one thing into another.

Modern living forces us to consider space saving ideas. The unique designs from Karup Design come from reliable production facilities to a high quality and at affordable prices. When we think of Scandinavian furniture there’s no better brand than Karup Design.
Karup furniture is expressive and every year new designs are shown at furniture fairs and shows. The responses from these events are critical and if positive will be given a green light for production. Keeping designs simple and easy to use is a core principle of the business.
As a result the practical nature of the designs means they function not only for sleeping but sitting as well. Multi functional furniture is a crucial concern for the modern consumer. Wherever you use Karup designs in your home you will know that your sleeping and sitting needs are catered for in a comfortable way.

FREE delivery is the first point to emphasise.

However, since the start of the Pandemic we have experienced huge difficulties to keep up with demand. Our supplier of quality Sofa Beds is Danish company Karup Design. They have undergone changes in the way they operate and as a result grown massively since 2020. This is a positive thing inasmuch  that it demonstrates people like the product range. But demand outstrips supply at this moment in time.

We always have stock coming from Karup Design so it's worth calling 020 7223 7212. However for the next few months lead time will be about 9 weeks. 

When your order arrives in our warehouse I get in touch with you and suggest a delivery date and when agreed it's guaranteed. Beyond that we can request an a.m. (08.30-13.00) or p.m. (13.00-18.30) slot. However the request is at the discretion of our couriers who do what they can to comply with your wishes.

You can specify a date or I'll suggest a date in the order confirmation email and you can amend as necessary. It is also possible to leave deliveries in a garage, with a neighbour or even at the back of a house. This request has to be made ahead of time and you feel it's safe to do so.

Love Your Futon

Essentially we feel it makes perfect sense to not just look after your futon but Love Your Futon. When you invest hundreds of pounds in a futon mattress get the best possible use from it. We insert a Care Leaflet with every futon mattress that we make. Therefore please take the time to digest the useful advice on the page. Furthermore as specialist futon mattress makers we want you to benefit from the sound sleep we hope it gives.

First Love

A few customers mention how thick the futon mattresses are when they first arrive in a customer's home. We explain on the leaflet and also when they call that there's air in the layers of filling. As a result the futon has to be in use for a week or so before there's some settlement. This "bedding in" process is completely normal and most of all necessary to have an even surface.

Other Love

While we want to get rid of the air at the beginning of the futon mattress's life, things move on. We very much hope the futon sits on a surface of slats.  This is especially relevant as we want air to circulate around the mattress. If air circulates it will enable a drying out process to occur. We all sweat at night when we sleep and the moisture can reside in the filling and eventually create mould. Drying out the futon will prevent mould from growing. On a hot dry day take your futon outside and let it sit in the sun to get completely dry. An open window can help get the same effect.
After 7-9 years
I hope you will have much use from your wonderful comfy futon mattress. But probably after nearly a decade the time will be approaching when you have to say "goodbye" old friend.
