3. Best Modern: West Elm Shelter Queen Sleeper Sofa
This sleek tuxedo-style sleeper sofa would make a beautiful addition to any modern home. The bestselling Shelter Sleeper Sofa is 84.5 inches long, and its arms are the same height as the back, creating a cool modern silhouette. Plus, there are additional design touches you’re sure to appreciate, including a single extra-long seat cushion and concealed support legs for a streamlined appearance.
The Shelter Sofa is available in a wide range of fabrics and colors, but the custom options do take several weeks for delivery. Another standout feature is the luxe inner queen-size mattress that boasts two layers for ultimate comfort—the base is made from high-density foam for support, and the top is a gel-infused memory foam that will keep sleepers cool throughout the night.
As an added bonus, West Elm offers White Glove delivery, which means the sofa will be delivered, assembled, and installed by a group of trained professionals, and they’ll even carry away the packaging, saving you the hassle of cleaning it all up.
4. Best Budget: Foundstone Joy 77" Round Arm Sleeper

This sleeper sofa is 77 inches long, making it ideal for smaller homes, but its seats are still spacious at 23.5-inches deep. Because this piece is a budget pick, it doesn’t have a traditional pull-out mattress—instead, its back simply folds down like a futon, creating a twin-size sleep space for your guests. Don’t worry, though! Its foam cushions make for a perfectly comfortable snooze spot.
