The Comfort Sleeper is a new and improved technology which requires very little effort to open, and folds out into a european style platform bed. Comfort Sleepers require less space as the head of the bed actually starts at the back of the sofa. The mattress is covered in Crypton fabric which is resistant to stains and prevents fluids, mold, mildew, bacteria and odor from reaching the mattress - and it keeps harmful allergens from ever reaching you. Available in stationary versions as well as the Comfort Sleeper in a wide array of fabric and leather choices. Also available with a Tempur-Pedic Mattress for an additional charge. Made in the USA.
