Greaves and Thomas sofa bed, Put-u-up.
Dating to the first half of the 1960s this lovely 2 seater sofa will convert to a double ” put-u-up ” bed . Its unusual to have a 2 seater convert to a double bed , but its one for occasional use rather than regular longer term use as although its comfortable as a sofa , its rather basic as a bed as there isn’t room for a sprung mattress , just a foam one .
We’ve got a 1966 Greaves + Thomas catalogue which shows the same 2 seat model but with 2 back cushions for use as a single bed studio couch . Its described as having scultured arms with afromosia ( dark teak ) finish tops .
We’ve re-polished the arms , and fully re-upholstered it to UK Fire Regulation standard using a fire-retardant barrier fabric and a lovely apple green Pierre Frey fabric that we found . We’ve replaced the original foam ” mattress ” with new foam of same thickness .
The width as a bed is 137cms , and length around 185cms ( the seat back forms a pillow like support ).
Dimensions: length 172cm, depth 81cm
