Decorating With the Minimalist Sofa Bed: Less Is So Much More

Minimalism is one of the grand achievements of modern interior design. With the ability to streamline home décor while still being inviting, a minimalist sofa bed is the perfect solution for any space, especially apartments and small rooms. By eliminating clutter, minimalism allows the singular beauty of every piece of furniture in a room to shine.

Minimalist sofa beds work great in a living room or bedroom because they allow you to have flexibility. You can even consider this piece of furniture for a spare room or home office in the event that you are working late or have an unexpected overnight guest. Viesso has a number of options that will allow you to show your style while keeping your home free of clutter and stress. Here are our minimalist sofa bed recommendations:


The design of a minimalist, modern sofa bed is key in order to achieve the careful balance of comfort versus style. With regard to selecting a mattress, look for a standard all-natural latex mattress or other natural fibers. This base will provide you with a sofa bed that is comfortable to sleep on if you need to use the sofa bed occasionally or on a regular basis.

As far as the frame, natural kiln dried hardwood will provide the durability that you are looking for. Make sure that you choose breathable natural fibers for the cushion covers for added comfort while you sit or sleep.


Minimalist sofa beds come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Consider your purpose for housing the minimalist sofa bed in the room before deciding on the shape. Are you looking for an edgy stand out piece? Consider a chaise sectional sofa bed. Are you looking simply for an extra place for someone to sleep or a sofa bed that takes up limited space? The armless sofa bed might be your best option. If you are looking for a more traditional option, the full sofa bed is probably what you should select.

Avoiding Chemicals

A healthy home begins with eco-friendly furniture. Selecting a minimalist sofa bed that does not contain harmful chemicals is very important. Opt for woven fabrics that are free of flame retardants and frame components that are chemical free. You can find a complete break down of all of the components that go into our sofa beds here.


If you are trying to achieve a minimal look in your room, opt for neutral colors when it comes to the sofa bed. Colors such as grey or black work well to minimize the size and effect of the sofa bed in your room. When contrasted with other bold colors from decorative items, wall art and other furniture items, your minimal sofa bed will draw the least amount of attention in the room.

If you are looking to show off your sofa bed, instead choose bold patterned fabrics for the upholstery. Throw pillows can also add an interesting element if you opt to purchase a sofa bed in a neutral color.


The best option for placement of a sofa bed would be to place it furthest from the door. This will make your room feel less cluttered and also provide you with the necessary space to include other furniture items. If a window is available, place your sofa bed opposite the window, so that you can enjoy the view of the outdoors when you are relaxing or sleeping on the sofa bed. This will also prevent the sofa bed from blocking the window, which is a common interior design mistake.

Minimalism has emerged as the preferred style because of its ability to keep homes clutter and stress free. When it comes to decorating your home with this style, it is important to remember that less is more. Use only those elements that are necessary to decorate your space. The use of a modern sofa bed is one of those items that is absolutely needed to define the perfect bedroom or living room.
