Somewhere among all the sleeper sofas and futons in the marketplace, there’s another category of convertible seating that you might’ve overlooked: sleeper chairs. They offer so much functionality in a relatively small footprint, and you can hardly even tell they have another secret life as a bed.
Unlike the usually large sleeper sofas, however, the sleeper chair isn’t just for a living room. Perfect for a home office or bedroom, these 10 super stylish sleeper chairs will certainly earn their keep in your house, especially once regular houseguests become a thing again.

3. Simplis Chair
Article’s Scandi-style Simplis Chair is aptly named; it’s simple to turn it into a bed, as depicted here, just by taking off the top seat cushion and lining it up with the chair’s base. Cleaning and care are also easy, since you can remove the seat and back cushion covers to wash them. If darker gray would match better with your space, that’s an option as well.

7. Paidge Chair and a Half Twin Sleeper
Truth be told, I’ve had my eye on this West Elm twin sleeper because it checks off all the boxes. First, it has timeless style, and it’s well-made (hand-built frame, hand-finished upholstery). According to reviews, it folds out easily into a bed and comes with a gel-infused, memory foam mattress that’s cushy and heat-wicking. Even in its more compact “chair state,” it’s also still roomy enough to curl up in for hours on end.

8. Monika Cot Size Chair Sleeper
Craftsmanship is a selling point of this clean-lined model from Finland-based company Luonto. I love its slightly curved silhouette and that its frame is made of locally-sourced wood. You can also choose from either wood or metal legs, so it’s sure to match the rest of your room’s style.

Room & Board sofas are among the most stylish and comfortable ones out there, so it’s no surprise the company’s sleeper chairs follow suit.The Berin model, in particular, is cushier than most, with its wide arms, deep seat, and angled back. The pullout bed’s foam mattress has a quilted cotton cover, which makes it super cozy and easy to clean in between guests.
