An honest product review of The Futon Shop’s Eco-Sofa in the color ‘Shell’. This vegan-friendly sofa bed is made from all natural, non-toxic materials such as coconut coir and dunlop latex and is entirely free of petro chemicals and fire retardants.

The Futon Shop Eco Sofa Assembly

The Futon Shop’s non-toxic, vegan friendly eco sofa bed arrives in a large box securely wrapped in shrink wrap. Once you unwrap it, you will find the bulk of the couch arrives in one piece, save for two armrests and feet that attach with very little effort. Included are also two soft, rectangular pillows for each end of the couch.

Giving it a Try

The first time I tried out the sofa bed mechanism, I was absolutely amazed at how EASY it was. Gone are the days of unfolding bulky, metal parts to sleep on a thin uncomfortable mattress. The foot of this eco sofa bed slides out with simple pull action (cloth handles provided), with the head of the couch folding back flat with a simple push-pull action. It truly could not be simpler to do, and a bonus: the bed itself is firm, yet plush and COMFORTABLE.

Product Review

This vegan-friendly eco sofa bed from The Futon Shop is truly luxurious, easy to use and soothing to the body. From the moment I touched the fabric, I was amazed at how silky smooth it was. And the sofa bed could not be easier to set up and use! The bed itself is comfortable for sleep and lounging, and the pillows are the perfect size and firmness for comfort and support. And I don’t know about you, but I am big on healthy non-toxic sleep and this eco sofa from The Futon Shop checks all the marks when it comes to being free of toxic materials. If you’re in the market for a healthy sleep or lounging solution, I cannot recommend The Futon Shop enough!

    I was thinking of getting this for my kids to use. It’s a bit outside of my budget but I will splurge so I can stay as chemical free as possible. This sofa is the right size but I’m worried about the room needed for the back to push backwards. Can this be up against a wall and opened up into a bed or does it need to be away from the wall to accommodate pushing the back back? I hope this makes sense.

      When converted to a bed, it extends only about 1 foot beyond couch position, if that makes sense! I hope this helps!

        Thanks so much for your response. I think I can make that work even though the room is small. Thanks again! I’m glad I found your review!

    Sounds like a far cry from those futons I had in college! What I would have done to sleep on this instead.
