IKEA FRIHETEN Sofa Bed Review

Here are a couple things I’ve noticed about the IKEA FRIHETEN sofa bed that you should know about before you buy one yourself.

I think for the features and price the IKEA FRIHETEN sofa bed is one of the best solutions for a modern living room. In this video I go over a the basic features, comfort and a couple other little quirks I’ve noticed about the IKEA FRIHETEN sofa bed.

Check out the assembly video guide for the IKEA Friheten Sofa bed for more information:

What about the price????

entangledvyne says:

I’ve had mine for about 3 years.

I weigh about 160 and can’t sleep with my head on the chaise side. The wooden beam for the frame of the storage/chaise box is reallly uncomfortable. If you sleep with your head going towards the other end it’s fine. I wouldn’t buy this to sleep permanently but it was good for a few weeks during bedroom renovations. I’ve also had company sleep on it and haven’t received any complains baring in mind I warned them about the wooden frame.

The pullout section has been the most troublesome part about this whole unit. It frequently pulls out completely and misses the metal catches which hold it in place. I’m guessing I could fix this by flipping the unit and tightening the chaise/end to the central couch part but I’m lazy and don’t pull it out frequently enough to bother moving stuff around my living room/taking everything out of the storage bit.

The sag in the couch is really quite noticeable. If i was all that concerned with how the couch looked after years of wear I wouldn’t have purchased a cheap ikea couch. Honestly, I didn’t expect this couch to last me over 3 years and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid budget couch.

This is all bad u sleep where others asses have been. It’s uncleanable

The Nature says:

magyar vagyok!!!

K M says:

We found the gap between the sofa and the pull out was an issue and questionable when kids are laying on it. The instability of the design was also a concern. The idea of the sofa is great. The Flagelbo design still remains the sturdiest and best design to date…for us anyway. Wish they made them again and certainly with real wood and screws…….

Nora DeKreek says:

Well done!  So much good info presented very well.  I found your review while researching this particular sofa…. and the review is so thorough that I subscribed!  🙂

Thanks for your concise and yet detailed review – much appreciated!
Did you ever compare to the (similar) VILASUND version of this sofa shape?
(from what i can tell, it’s the same, but with removable covers and spring instead of foam?)

Senthil Arumugam says:

K M says:

Great presentation though… 🙂

Vinnamese says:

Great review.

Will Fribourg says:

So I’m nearly 100 lbs. and, I was wondering, do you think it would be easy to feel the wooden frame, under the cushions, in my scenario?

terpice says:

IKEA IS JUNK FURNITURE.

Nicole Travis says:

i think its good but the only thing i don’t like are that the pillows aren’t washable and that depending on the weight that you can feel the wood while laying down

Martine Dahlslett says:

Does anyone have experience with using this as a bed every night? Struggling between choosing this sofa or a new bed

Edgunsuk says:

what you think of this item as a bed option for a camper conversion ?

Sloppy Gaming says:

mattress topper and steam cleaner and your sorted

Demitri S says:

Why do i keep seeing this in my recommended?? But good review tho

Kevin Yoo says:

Coming from your office chair review… and we have the same sofa as well?! Man, we must share some minimalist philosophy or something.

Ger Batt says:

hi David, my wife and I weigh 800 pounds combined, would this hold up to our moderate weight , I would appreciate your opinion .

Jai says:

Really useful review thank you 🙂 This has helped me make the decision to buy this.

Stubbington Village says:

Helpful review thanks

Eve Adams says:

just bought one..Am loving it so far✌..

Crunchy ShadTV says:

Outstanding review, complete with subtitles. Bravo, bravo! Ikea should hire you, because even their website did not clarify the leather option, or at least It was not clear to me. Which leads me to wonder if the leather option would not stretch like the fabric? It would be really cool if you could answer this tonight cause I’m driving four hours to pick this thing up. I personally like the idea of the ottoman to get comfortable, and with a mattress topper I think it will sleep fine. I’m surprised by all the negative comments, which makes me question how long its been since any of the nay sayers have sept on a conventional sleeper with the thin mattress. Anyway thank you.

Daniel Callon says:

Thanks for the video! Going on year 2 of this bed… Let me tell you, switch now. I’m about ready to take IKEA to court because I’ve developed lower back problems, insomnia, I’m now actually waking up feeling like absolute trash where as I spent one week in a bed recently, and I felt like a whole new person during that week. I feel sleep deprived, walk around with eyelids that feel like 100 pounds each, procrastinate much more than usual, more forgetful, and can’t keep concentration that well (all symptoms of sleep deprivation). On top of that, there’s a massive wood bar that runs across the middle of one of the mattresses and it has destroyed my lower back. Never had problems with my lower back, and the family has never ever had problems with their SI joint, which I actually sprained a year ago when I went back to playing sports (the year before I slept in a bed and nothing was wrong). I cannot disapprove of this bed more, and if you’re “okay” with this bed when you try it for yourself, or simply buying it for the price or the look, it costs you more money in the long run when you have to get back therapy and get diagnosed with a laundry list of things before the doctor realizes it’s just your terrible IKEA bed. Wouldn’t wish this monster upon my worst enemy.

Shavaughn Morris says:

This is the best review I’ve ever seen in my life

Russell Laberta says:

how much was it

Five Dee says:

Manstad was born first. That’s your comparable choice sir. Also I think its VERY relevant that the cushion begins to sag over time when the bed’s in sitting mode. I had this problem with a regular sofa futon and when guests came over and sat on my sofa, I felt the difference when I put it in bed mode for sleeping. So no – that wasn’t “nit-picky” to point that out.

Marion Koleski says:

Really helpful, thank you!
