        Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

        Looked good when we first got it but it was never really comfortable as a sofa. Then after a year and a half one of the legs cracked (not from overly heavy use--no one super overweight or flopping down on it). There seemed to be some flaw in the design and the way the legs were screwed in.

        Looked good but questionable durability

        Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

        Nice design but be aware of two issues I have experienced after 1 1/2 years: (a)early on the foam in the coach will become a bit mis-shappen at the edge of the seating/bench and (b)after more time the glued wood veneers around the legs start to peel.

          Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

          This sofa is a nice addition to our office; we wanted to have a place for overnight guests that also functioned in an everyday room. The sofa looks great, but the cushions are a little too shallow when sitting on it. When it opens to a bed, the two sides don't quite line up so there is a dip from one side to the other. We bought a memory foam topper that we use on the bed, and that works pretty well. Overall, it serves its purpose and it's one of the best looking sofa beds I've ever seen.

          Pros

          • Nice Fabric

          Cons

          • Heavy And Hard To Open
          • Uncomfortable As A Bed
          • Uncomfortable As A Couch

          Best Uses

            Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

            We got this to use as both a couch and our main bed in a very small NYC pied-a-terre. The positives: it looks great and it is slim as a couch, taking up less floor space than most. Unfortunately, that's about it for the good stuff. As far as the negatives, opening and closing the bed is hard for me, a small female. Sleeping on it as a bed is an awful experience. It is incredibly firm and the frame goes down the middle of the bed, making it more like two twin beds pushed together. I haven't had one good night sleep on it yet.

              Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

              This is the best couch I've owned.Our friends love to sit on it and comment about the design and how it "doesn't look like a sleeper." Cool. I've given my bed to a few friends with babies sleeping over. It's awesome when you can enjoy sleeping on your guest bed. My best friend bought one a few months after we did, she loves it too!

              Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

              We have a small two bedroom condo and this is our only couch. We wanted something with a small footprint that could be used as a sleeper without being heavy or fussy. For that, I would rate it 4+ stars, but as an everyday couch I don't find it comfortable so I gave it three stars overall.

              Pros: 1)Being able to flip the couch open to a bed is very easy and useful and will be even more so now that we are converting our second bedroom into a nursery. The guests that have slept on it have all said it is comfortable. 2) The look of the couch is perfect for us. 3) We have a dog that sheds that we allow on furniture. I vacuum the couch every other week and the dog hair sucks right up for the most part. We do keep the half of the couch that she typically sleeps on covered with a blanket when guests are not over so that helps minimize the dog hair.

              Cons: Really just one - I wish the seat depth was a couple inches more. It's hard to get comfortable when watching tv/movie. Also (this is minor, but related), I used to be able to take naps with the dog laying next to me and this couch doesn't really allow for that. The dog (she is small and I am not huge) can squeeze on, but she doesn't get comfortable enough to stay for long. Prior to this, we had a traditional overstuffed couch which felt fairly large and was comfy, but the cushions always needed to be reshaped which drove us a little crazy. In reaction to that we bought this couch which is much firmer, but less cozy. We knew that going into it and thought we would adjust... but two years later we're still not used to it.

              I am glad we bought this couch, and one day will be happy to have it in a different room when we have a larger place. It is not ideal as our only couch. However, if you don't watch too much tv and don't take naps on your couch you would probably be totally happy. It is very cool and sleek, looks as pictured, and gets lots of compliments.

              Fits well in my Den and will work for young overnight guest (primary reason). It is a VERY low profile bed when it converts. Will not put my parents on it to sleep!

                We were going to go with the One Night Stand (for the name alone) but were told the Diplomat was more cushiony for actual sofa sitting. It's the perfect fit for our smaller TV/guest room. The bed is a bit low to the ground (we'll be sleeping on it if one of our aging parents comes to visit), but our first guest found it super comfy.

                  Comments about Blu Dot The Diplomat Sleeper Sofa:

                  I bought this sofa right when it came out in the fall of 2010. It has clean lines and looks nice - smog is a nice light grey color. The sofa is not comfortable to sit on though. Some people complain about the firmness of the seat of blu dot sofas, but I think the density is fine. My issue is the bench sits very high and slopes forward, so I feel like I am slipping forward. I'm 5'7" and when I sit with my feet touching the ground, I feel like I have to put pressure on my feet to keep from sliding off. Funny thing is, the bench feels fine if you are lying on the sofa or sitting cross legged such that your feet don't touch the ground. The bench is very shallow (hence the space saving), so don't expect to spoon with your boyfriend/girlfriend.
