Poetry Sofa Bed 3 seat: FSC® Timber
Poetry Sofa Bed has an unusual name for what is a functional piece of furniture. However we think it adds to its mystique. With all models manufactured by Karup Design in Denmark the Pine timber is top quality and has an FSC kite mark. This tells us that the timber grows in a sustainable way by foresters who are paid a living wage.
- Another feature, the Poetry converts from sofa to bed and vice versa by releasing the leather straps. Therefore just pop the studs at the sides of the frame. A simple manoeuvre is all that’s needed, absolutely no fuss at all.
- This sofa bed measures 130 x 190 cm when laid out flat as a bed. 130 cm is a little less that standard UK measurement for double width, which is 140 cm. Even so there’s enough space for two adults to sleep. While in use as a sofa there’s enough room for a cosy threesome, the 190 cm measurement is a standard UK double size for length.
- We like to offer a choice when we can and the Poetry ia available in x 3 finishes. These can be seen in the drop down menu above.

Assembling your Poetry Sofa Bed is very straightforward as there’s only a few pieces. The finished piece of furniture is a comfy, solid, functional sofa bed.
My tips to you are: remove the parts from the packaging, then the box etc..should be put out of the way. Give yourself room to operate. Check you have everything the “book of words” says you should have.
Take your time, follow the plan and accept help or ask for more hands when necessary. Finally, no macho tightening bolts into barrel nuts, just “finger tight” when using the supplied allin key. Simples,and if not please call me.020 7223 7212.
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.
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.
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.
