Designed by Flemming Busk, the Twilight Sleeper Sofa is compact, enabling it to be easily converted into a double twin bed, daybed, or queen-size bed by moving the bolster out and placing the cushion on the floor. We can use a Twilight Sleeper Sofa in living rooms, offices, guestrooms, bedrooms, and in secondary sitting arrangements. The Twilight Sleeper Sofa is popular for people who want to furnish a modern space with flexible sleeping options. The lack of arms is compensated by aluminum frames with different dimensions which makes it ideal for small areas. Its roll-shaped back also provides a straightforward transition from a sofa to a bed, and the small wheels at the end enable ease of mobility.

The Tuck Sleeper Sofa is an innovative piece of sleep furniture from Thomas Müller and Jörg Wulff that provides owners with a smooth transition from day to night.
