A springy, lumpy sofa bed can put a damper on any guests' stay at your place, and what's even worse is if it's an eyesore, too. So if you're in the market for a new couch, invest in a modern and comfortable option that looks good and won't put a crick in their back.

Unlike sleeper sofas, which typically have hidden, built-in mattresses, sofa beds and futons simply lay flat to form a bed. Below, seven stylish sofa beds from Amazon, Wayfair, AllModern and more. These comfortable sofa beds are reviewer-loved and range in price from affordable to splurge-worthy.
