I've been to John Lewis today and was fairly unimpressed with the selection they had that will fit the space available in the study where it must go.

I am thinking of one of these from The Futon Company but just wondered if they are comfy enough? Would only be for occasional use but I have painful memories of my bedsit days and futons that you could feel the slats of through the thin padding of the futon.

this one Does anyone have anything similar?

It's not similar to your pic but I have one of these set ups and have slept on it a couple of times myself, it is incredibly comfy and is commented on by everyone who stays. I originally got it as an emergency/temporary thing but it is so comfortable I have kept it.

Thanks - I went into their shop today (The Futon Co.) and was really impressed with the quality of their stuff and by their customer service. I'm going back tomorrow to buy one!

I second Ikea. have had other futons from elsewhere but definately prefer an Ikea one with a better quality mattress.

I do like that one and have heard good things, unfortunately at 200cm it is too wide for our study though.
