These ottoman sofa bed pieces are made to look like a cube, with fabric that hangs to the floor. It is made with the idea of having a footrest that could match any decor using the ottoman slipcovers (that are typically sold separately) to cover it when not being used as a bed. You could call these items pieces of cube furniture, but they are really a better fit into the bed and mattress category because of how they are used. However, some of these footrest cubes do have lids to be used for storage of cushions, remotes, etc. However, the ottoman sleeper bed is not one of them.

About Those Ottoman Slipcovers

There are a variety of covers that you could use to help this ottoman look even more like part of your other living room set. Rather than using the standard microsuede fabrics, you could also go with a more elegant fabric. A leather ottoman bed is a nice looking piece all its own. When you pair it with a leather chair or sofa, the combination can be even more striking.

However, the real beauty of these types of flexible furniture items is how they can provide great extra seating by day and convert to a nice, comfortable bed by night – perfect for that impromptu guest or surprise visit.

Not unlike the futon covers you might use for your futon sofa or chair mentioned above, these covers come in a range of fabrics and materials. Typical ottoman covers begin at around $40 USD and up, depending upon materials. The basic ottoman can cost anywhere between $180-250 USD.  For more elegant leather designs or those with additional storage features or designs can cost upwards of $1,000-1,500 USD.

Most of the basic ottomans are made of a twin mattress high density polyfoam material. The frame is made of a painted steel and is mounted to heavy-duty casters for easy rolling from room to room as needed. Dimensions of these ottoman beds are approximately 25”W x 30”D x 18 ½”H (folded) and 76”L x 30”W x 13 ½” H (open).
