The Milano Bedding Jan 8 sofabed is notable for having the thickest mattress on the market. It has a peerless 18cm deep coil spring interior mattress. It is also available with an 18cm deep pocket spring mattress topped with memory foam. This is the most luxurious mattress available for any sofabed sold in the UK. Beware of guests finding reasons to extend their stay. It is a comfortable modern design with foam seat and back cushions giving it a fairly firm “sit”. It is also very practical. The Jan 8 has arms that are 20cm wide, as opposed to the 13cm wide arms found on the Jan. The bed mechanism smoothly pulls out into a bed without the need to remove the seat or back cushions. The covers are all removable. This is important because when you need new covers they can be ordered quite cheaply. With fixed upholstery the cost of re-upholstery is nearly as much as a new sofa. Furthermore, before fitting the upholstery covers the Jan 8 has a fire retardant lining fitted. This means natural washable covers can be fitted instead of using fabrics that have been treated with chemicals to make them fire retardant. Once they have been treated this way they cannot be washed. There is a space in the back-rest for storing pillows. When the bed is pulled out, the length from the back of the sofa to the foot of the bed is 210cm. The Jan 8 is sold with a 5 YEAR GUARANTEE on the mechanism. No other sofa bed company in the world is confident enough to make this offer on its bed mechanism.
This is a good model for locations where access might be difficult because both the arms and back are removable.
There is a clever wheel mechanism available as an optional extra whereby the sofabed can be raised up on wheels by simply pulling on handles hidden between the seat cushions and armrests. This allows the sofabed to be easily moved. This is very useful for cleaning purposes or simply changing the position of the sofabed.
