KIVIK sofa is one of our classics, here as a compact 1-seat sofa-bed that you can easily make into a comfortable bed. Perfect for using an area smartly and having overnight guests even in smaller spaces.
KIVIK 1-seat sofa-bed is a snug and easy-to-place sofa during the day – and simple to make into a comfortable bed at night.
The sofa-bed has a compact design that allows you to fit both an extra seat and overnight guests in a small area.
The seat cushions made of pocket springs, high-resilience foam and polyester fiber mold to your body and provide firm support and comfortable softness, both when sitting up and lying down.
The seat and back cushions are used to create the bed, which means they are out of the way when the sofa is transformed into a sleeping space.
KIVIK 1-seat sofa-bed has a distinct design language and a silhouette like the sofas in the series, while the design without armrests gives it its own strong personality.
Pocket springs are a durable solution that makes the sofa retain both its shape and comfort for many years.
The Tresund fabric with a clear texture is made of 100 percent recycled polyester and cotton. It has a nice two-tone effect with a luster and a wonderfully soft feeling that adds to the comfort.
The cover is easy to keep clean since it can be machine washed and is easy to take off and put on again.

comfortable, stylish, innovative design that does't look like a sleeperLuciePROs: looks great, clever design, quick + easy to transform into a bed, very comfortable as a chair, good back support, doesn't look like a sleeper, looks very good in a corner, very inviting; guests choose this seating option :)
NEUTRAL: pretty firm bed but not hard as a rock; may or may not need a topper. took 2 hours to assemble. it seemed very expensive for a chair, but it is a) very wide and b) a 2 for 1 since it's also a sleeper and c) a very comfortable as a chair
CONs: very small con for all the pros but since there are actually 2 different foam cushions stacked inside the seat area it sort of shows if you look closely from the front because it's hard to get them into perfect alignment which you can't see in their picture. this would only bother a perfectionist. for all the benefits of the chair, this is not a problem for us. another con is cat likes to scratch it ;)5
Comfortable bed. Great looking chair.YvonneWe bought this for my daughter’s house so that I would have a place to sleep on for a week long visit. After other comments on how difficult the covers are to put on she followed the instructions carefully and had no issues. We have the Valentuna sleeper at our house and guests really liked it. The Kivik was even more comfortable to me as the points where the mattress bends are in better locations. My hip and shoulders had great support. It is also a bit wider. I loved the memory foam. I slept very well during my stay and look forward to my next visit with her. I am 5’7” and 170 lbs.5
Very difficult to get the slip cover onKerryThis fits perfect in our space and looks great. BUT it is very difficult to get the slip cover on and zip up the piece. We are hoping this will get easier over time.4
Fabric Covers Extremely DifficultAnnI have purchased many IKEA products and have never had such a hard time putting on the fabric covers on the cushions and the fabric covering the rest of the chair. I had to use a pliers to stretch the fabric to fit. It was just too small. It literally took me 4 hours of stretching and pulling to get the velcro to attach as well as the zippers shut. The cushion does not fit well on the chair seat either.2
Almost impossible to zip the fabricGongIt was almost impossible to zip the fabric to cover the two cushions. The whole zipping process took over an hour.2
The fabric cover does notRobertThe fabric cover does not fit the unit. Was impossible to get it on without tearing it, and it still looks terrible. The shape of fabric does not line up with the components on the chair. I’m probably returning it if I cannot get a new fabric that fits properly1
Does not connect to other Kivik piecesLindseyThe single seat is truly just that, a single seat. I incorrectly assumed that I would be able to connect this to other pieces in the kivik series, but this piece is not modular. It seems odd to be part of the series but not connect to any other pieces...
I also found zippering the cover in seat mode to be difficult based on the size and location of the zipper.3
