And no, definitely no leaning forwards!

Agree with others. We've recently got rid of one. It was good as a sofa for the kids, as there was no cushions to lose stuff behind. Too hard to be a comfy seat, though. I managed to sleep on it when I was in my 30s, but in my 40s, more recently, I needed an extra topper on the mattress.

Can you get the missing bits replaced at Ikea? Next to customer services they have a sort of back office/workroom with lots of spare bits and pieces. Worth your flatmate asking and tell him it wasn't you that lost them. Has it def been folded up correctly?

I got the chair bed off eBay - total bargain and very pleased with it for small bedroom also used as a study.

I gave mine away on the local fb for sale page as I was sick of looking at the ugly lump but no, it did not lean forwards at the back.

Guys S.O.S.!
I have a crazy flatmate and I want to get the hell away from him.
Anyway, he claims that I have damaged his LYCKSELE.
Please, can anyone tell me if the back of this sofa-bed is supposed to lean forward or not?
Extra info: Normally, LYCKSELE has two plastic pieces that cover the joints on the back of it (back when it is a sofa). In my case they are missing (and I was not the one to lose them :P)
Please, give me some feedback, I don't want to run to IKEA for this psycho...
Thank you very much!

Yup, agree with other posters. Fine as spare bed, actually pretty comfortable but as a sofa it's pretty crap to be honey, literally made for perching!

Agree with precious. We've got the double, and it's a good spare bed, fine as occasional seat in our study, but would be a crap everyday sofa.

We have the lysksele chair bed so assuming just the same but a single. It is fine but I would only want to use as a spare and not have it as main sofa.
