Pros: price
Cons: inconvenient for sleeping, it doesn’t look good, quality, the material it’s made of is flimsy, too low

Once we finished painting the walls and installed the flooring, it was a high time to move in. At that moment we didn’t have a lot of money, well, we still don’t have it even now because of all those money killers like mortgage and loans. So, due to all that mortgage-loans-repairings stuff, we had to buy the cheapest Solsta couch so as not to leave our room too empty. It didn’t go a long way with us and we quickly sent it to our summer cottage, where it fits right in.


It’s a really tiny sleeper sofa:

It’s for a living room, so all the basic activities in the room are centered around it. At the same time, it still isn’t just for “sitting in front of the TV sofa”, no. The couch is multi-functional. If you friends popped into your house, you can freely leave those poor guys to stay for a night.



It’s a bad roomy bed:

I had a chance to assess the comfort of this sofa myself. I found out that it is possible to sleep on this couch unless you’re deeply drunk or left with your proud solitude.

It isn’t a two-person-friendly couch. Well, maybe only for children. The sofa is really tiny.



The only thing that I liked about it is actually converting into a bed thing. I mean there isn’t any mechanism or anything. This is the first couch of mine which I can easily pull out even after a half of the bottle of cognac. Everything is simple there - just fold out the seat cushions and they’ll pull out like a book.



The futon here is soft, though very thin and it always feels as though I sleep on the floor. And this is partly true, as the futon does really lie on the floor and I can feel literally every air draft over my back.




It’s average. The cover is very thin and I know that conscious makers don’t use such materials to cover their sofas. It doesn’t keep its shape because the filling is cheap and frameless. It’s made of simple Polyurethane. Within the six months of use, the couch has started to look as though I’ve been utilizing it for 30 years.



  • non-soiled

  • affordable price

  • rather compact



  • inconvenient

  • low

  • the cover gathers in the center


Price: $179.00

Made by Ikea

Casing: Fabric



We bought it for a short period of time and it still isn't worth it. You’ll have to buy it, deliver and assemble, as any other sofa. It’s better to add some money and buy a better exemplar, Exarby, for instance. I used to have it some time ago and I really liked it.


But as for this Solsta one, I don’t recommend it!
