There’s an art to following furniture trends – and another one entirely to following used furniture trends. The savviest used furniture buyers know how to spot that sweet spot where gently used pieces are coming back into circulation but are still very much in style.
So, what’s one piece of furniture that makes that list right now?
Thanks to a recent upsurge in designer attention, sleeper couches provide a great blend of functionality, comfort, and style. Once a staple of drab, suburban living rooms, these are now more elegant than ever.
The strength of a sleeper couch is its versatility. As the name suggests, it supplies a space for sprawling out comfortably without taking up all the space of a bed or contributing the slightly less fashionable statement a futon makes.
Because these pieces are focused on surface space, they’re often more open and minimally constructed than standard couches, often using only one narrow cushion.
Today, used furniture buyers can often find a larger-than-ever array of sleeper couches featuring chic colors and construction.
