As this writer can attest from the experience of the last two weeks, a pullout sofa can be a horrible, lumpy, backbreaking thing. That is why I was so intrigued by the Dileto sofa bed. Katherine demonstrates.
When flat, TreeHugger Bonnie says it is quite comfortable;
It can be used in an intermediate position that Katherine says is great for watching TV;
Folded, it is quite a respectable looking sofa. Katherine tells us that it was originally designed in Colombia with a frame produced in Germany, now sold out of the Design District in Miami. From about $4,500, which isn't bad if it saves you the cost of a room and a chiropractor. More information at Dileto
