PerfectSarah B.I purchased this to be a versatile sleeping solution for my daughter’s area in our tiny home. It’s part couch cushion, part portable lounger, and a great mattress for sleeping. When we go tent camping I claim this one as my sleeping pad! It’s firm but when used as a mattress a soft mattress topper makes it extremely comfortable. Perfect for small spaces, camping, kids or adults. I just purchased some purple velvet fabric to create a cover to better personalize this for my daughter’s space. I’m planning to buy another soon for our other couch area. You could spend the same amount on a good foam mattress, but if you’re looking for versatility, comfort, fun, and durability you’ll enjoy this product.5
Slakt reviewJoeIt works for little kids sleeping on it or lounging but was way over priced at $100.4
slakt is nice but it'sraymondslakt is nice but it's expensive.
hope you will have different color for the covers.5
Smaller than Twin Size BedJUSTINBought this because we thought it was a twin size bed. It is much smaller.4
Weird sizeDonnaI'm sure the measurements were listed in the description but I did not realize that it's very narrow and very long. I thought I could use it for sleeping pads for small children. Also, because of the unique size, there are no sheets that would fit on it.1
Not at all as described :/Lisa PoolWe’re big fans of IKEA however this product is a huge fail in our opinion. Concept is great but this flip bed is really just a hard-as-rock camping mat, nothing anyone should consider for sleeping on more than a night. For $109 this thing needs to be cozier than an air mattress - some of the top of the line twins aren’t $109! Save your money and pass on this miss by IKEA.1
Comfortable for small space livingCynthiaIt’s small but that’s the point. If you are a tiny home/small space person this is what you need. Folds up into a chair during times you’re not sleeping so great for multipurpose living.5
Multi purpose "chair "MADELINEThis was listed as a child's folding chair. I purchased it as a mattress for my granddaughter's sleepovers, but she immediately started using it as a lounge chair, backrest, and more. I'd be more thrilled with it if it came in different colors. The fabric is very sturdy and should hold up to a lot of use, or should I say abuse? Was a bit hesitant about the price, but it really is worth every penny. Setup was a breeze, and the chemical odor that some people warned about, never appeared. All in all, it's one of the best purchases we've made for our granddaughter.5
Very neat item!Beth K.Glad I trusted the reviews and bought it! It's a very comfortable floor cushion in our exercise/guest area, plus it will be nice to have as an extra bed for grandchildren visits if Covid ever ends:)5
very cutececille lai use it on top of my media console. it turns it into extra seating on my 74 inch media console and a bed to take a short nap on which suits my 300 square foot bachelor5
TomatenflügelI bought one of these for myself (a small adult) and have been sleeping on it every night for a couple of months. Really quite pleased. It’s narrow, but that’s a plus as I see it because it’s conveniently small when folded. It’s very firm, but it needs to be if it’s going to offer much support because it’s so thin. Shame about the colors, but that’s small potatoes. The mattress appears to be very well made and has held up, very well so far, to regular use as a full fledged mattress, which is very good for a product intended for occasional use by children. I don’t anticipate the foam will compress much over time. You won’t regret buying one unless you’re excessively fussy. It’s also the only folding mattress of its dimensions I could find anywhere that folds four times, instead of three, which is great. Hope IKEA carries these for a long time - I’ll be back eventually. The mattress comes vacuum-packed in a box and takes three days to puff up to its full thickness. No, it never really gets to be as square and fat as the stock photos, but it does perform beautifully.5
Great for sleeping overCola 2016I purchased this folding mattress and it worked out great for my smaller grandchild. It folded out perfectly and I put on a fitted sheet. Put a sleeping bag on top. Pulled sheet off next morning,folded up and slid under bed. So easy.5
ExpensiveSewing 72Could be softer foam for a folding mattress. I bought it because it’s compact shape but it’s hard and very narrow for even a child emergency bed.3
Overnight stayCathy630Great for unexpected stays. Excellent options for minimalist5
Great for traveling!Karen55I bought this a month ago and so happy I did. I travel across state to visit my son and his family quite often and this is so efficient and compact and easy to put away So glad I bought this!5
Bad smellksana33Nice idea, very functional. My kid loves it more than his regular bed. good for the sleep overs. BUT it smells like mold. looks like they washed it and then compressed with plastic bag, and it's been without air for a while. it's not wet, but smells like mold. I bought 3 and 2 of them were really bad. I've kept one only because my kid loves it, but I would return it as well. The smell is unbearable.2
Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Virgin vs recycled polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Some challenges with recycled polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.
Only recycled polyester
IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.
At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is foam?
Foam is excellent as upholstery in seating and mattresses since it provides good comfort and can relieve pressure by moulding to the body. Depending on the properties and feel you’re looking for, there are several qualities to choose from, like high-resilience foam and memory foam. The raw material for foam was previously based entirely on virgin fossil materials. But today, together with our suppliers, we’ve begun developing a material that is renewable and recycled.
