PerfectVerified ReviewerI was so shocked when I came here to read somebody else has been using this sofa as their main bed. Me and my partner also have to have a living room/bedroom as our house is only a two bed and we need a three bed ideally but dont want to move house. We have been using this sofa for two years now. We work from home so are sat on it all day every day then sleep on it every night. We dont have any issues with it at all, its a solid build. I actually came here to see if we could flip the ottoman to the other side as we want to rearrange the living room, seems we can lol. Anybody looking for a budget sofa that can be used as a bed i highly reccomend it. We have blankets on it during the day and use a king size matress protector at night, if we take them all off the sofa still looks brand new. We also opted for the extra cushions. A king size quilt and two pillows are easily stored in the ottoman part.
Due to Giving up bedroom needed something as a permanent SolutionVerified ReviewerMost people write a review days after getting or even before they use it saying looks good, perfect for what we wanted but you don't get a true review.
It has been 13 months since i got mine. Due to medical reason my sons could no longer share a bedroom due to adaptations needed, Moving house isn't an option so we needed a permanent solution.
Every night for the last 13months me and my wife have slept on this sofa. Some people have said collapsed after 2-3 uses.... they must have done something wrong with the assembly. I'm 18 stone 6"2 and no issues so far.
The only issue is the sponge has sunk a tiny bit in my "regular spot" I sit daily, but hasn't effected the comfort. We redecorated about 6 months ago and changed the room around, simple to switch the corner the other way to accommodate.
We have a routine that while my wife puts the kettle on I dismantle and store away the bed, we have a king-size duvet each (she steals it otherwise) and that fits easily under with our pillows.
Sofa bedVerified ReviewerGreat sofa bed going to buy another for the living room as this was bought for study/ extra space for guests.
Great sofa!Verified ReviewerLovely sofa, great quality. When received it there were some parts missing but rang the helpline and they sent me some replacement straight away. Very happy with my new sofa. Getting a lot of compliments
Nice addition to my home office/guest roomVerified ReviewerComfie both to sit on and sleep on. Took about 45 mins to assemble. Stowage is just right for a duvet & pillows.
Good valueVerified ReviewerFor the price it does the job very well. Only had it for one month but has been used as sofa and bed and although firm is comfortable.
Love this corner sofa. LooksVerified ReviewerLove this corner sofa. Looks smart when built. Easy to pull out and convert to sofa bed. I put together on my own bit awkward in parts and a lot of lifting but I managed it! :) might be a bit firm for some but I love it
Looking GoodVerified ReviewerWe desperately needed a new sofa and so went directly to IKEA. The Friheten was exactly what we wanted. It is comfortable and sturdy. The delivery went like clockwork and assembly was not a problem, even for 67 year old me and my 75 year old husband. I love how it looks in our space and would highly recommend it.
A very practical piece of furnitureVerified ReviewerThe storage and sofa bed makes it a very practical piece of furniture. Good size, comfortable. It is medium firm and that is to our liking. Extra cushions are handy.
Cover is soft and looks very good. But not washable
Found there are plenty of 3rd party washable covers on Google if this one gets dirty
Some parts are made out of very low grade chip board so only time will tell how durable it is.
The chaise lounge came damaged, and phone support was not very good but Facebook support was very effective and a replacement arranged promptly
Excellent value at the price point with 10 year guarantee. Time will tell about durability.
Very comfortable easy to putVerified ReviewerVery comfortable easy to put together
Does the jobVerified ReviewerQuite comfortable. Easy to put together and as a sofa bed it does the job we bought it for
ExcellentVerified ReviewerCan’t go wrong with IKEA products
Great ValueVerified ReviewerI was concerned when reading the negative reviews but the sofa is great. Easy to put together and really comfortable. Looks really smart too.
