How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Who is Cocoon?
Cocoon is the brand behind the UK’s most-reviewed sofa bed.
The founders behind Cocoon were frustrated by the thin mattresses commonly found in sofa beds, so they redesigned them. 🎉
Each Cocoon Sofa Bed combines a luxurious, deep pocket sprung mattress with a stylish sofa design.
The founders also developed a one-touch easy opening mechanism for their range of comfortable and convenient sofa beds.
Cocoon offers a great selection of sofa beds, including two- to five-seater designs and corner modular options.
Their dedication to customer satisfaction is evident.
In fact, 97% of customers on the Cocoon site recommend their products and 98% report on-time deliveries.
Features of Cocoon Sofa Beds
Cocoon Sofa Beds are praised for their comfort and customisability.
Let’s take a closer look at the standout features of these sofa beds.
Each Cocoon sofa is made with individual modules that can be fitted together in different ways.
This gives you the flexibility to decide how you want to arrange your sofa for your home.
You can determine whether it’s left- or right-facing depending on the shape of your room.
The modular design also makes it easy to move between different rooms.
You can break the sofa into different modules and move them individually before reattaching them together in another room.
You can also replace individual modules if they get damaged or worn over time.
Although, Cocoon only offers a one-year guarantee, so that doesn’t give you much time to ask for replacement parts.
The best sofa beds prioritise both comfort and durability.
Cocoon includes a deep pocket sprung mattress in each sofa bed to make them comfy and supportive. 👏
Pocket spring mattresses have individual springs sewn into their own pocket of fabric.
Each spring works independently to support your body weight and provide a pressure-relieving effect.
Pocket spring mattresses tend to be firmer, offering more stability while you sleep.
They have a high point elasticity, providing excellent pressure relief if you struggle with back, neck and shoulder pain.
And they have a long lifespan making them durable and ideal for an investment sofa bed.
If you’re also looking for a pocket spring mattress for your bed, we recommend the Simba Hybrid.
Cocoon recognises the demands of modern living and our limited storage options.
Every Cocoon Corner Sofa Bed includes twin or triple ottoman-style storage underneath the sofa.
These storage compartments provide enough space to keep your belongings organised and maximise the space in your living area.
Cocoon is all about sustainability. ♻️
They use recycled yarn for all their fabrics to reduce the amount of waste produced.
This yarn is tested for up to 350 toxic chemicals and substances under their OEKO-TEX certificate.
Finish your Cocoon Sofa Bed with an eco-friendly mattress topper, like the Panda London Mattress Topper, made from memory foam and bamboo.
Handcrafted by experts
Each Cocoon Sofa Bed is meticulously hand-crafted by fully-trained upholsters.
They select only the best materials to ensure durability and longevity, including micro-weave and micro-cloth.
From the stitching to the finishing touches, Cocoon's attention to detail provides a high-quality product that will enhance your living space for years to come.
All of Cocoon’s fabrics use water-blocking technology that stops water from entering the fabric.
So, if someone spills water on the sofa, the liquid will stay on the surface in droplets that can be easily wiped away.
Cocoon calls this their H20 easy-wipe fabric, and it's every parent's dream!
How do you convert the Cocoon Sofa Bed from a sofa to a bed?
Cocoon uses eMotionTM technology, so you can open your sofa bed with one easy touch.
You just pull out the bottom of the sofa, and the bed pops into place with the cushions in place.
You don’t need to navigate scary snap closures that bite your fingers. 🥳
Turn your living room or spare bedroom sofa in to a large bed in just one action.
It’s quick, easy, and your guests will get a fantastic night’s sleep.
Making the Cocoon Sofa Bed feel like a bed
Finish with some nice sheets and cosy blankets in case your guests get cold at night.
While we have yet to find a memory foam mattress in a sofa bed, you can always add a memory foam topper to make it extra comfy.
We recommend the Panda Memory Foam Mattress Topper.
How much does the Cocoon Sofa Bed cost?
Cocoon Sofa Beds are on the more expensive side of the market.
They feature premium recycled fabrics, a one-touch opening mechanism and deep pocket spring mattresses.
Before you invest in a Cocoon Sofa Bed, here are a few things to consider to make sure it's the right choice for you.
Visit the Cocoon Sofa Bed showroom
A trip to the Cocoon Sofa Bed showroom can help you decide whether the high price is worth it.
Feel the different fabrics, evaluate the different sizes, and sit down on a few sofas to see if they're comfortable.
Many Cocoon Sofa Bed TrustPilot reviews praise the showrooms for their wide selection of products and helpful teams.
Make sure to book an appointment on their website so they know you're coming.
The Cocoon showrooms are based in:
- South Coast, Emsworth
- London Tower Bridge
Cocoon offers a 1-year guarantee
Unfortunately, Cocoon only offers a 1-year guarantee period which seems very short for a product with a higher price point.
The per-year cost is high compared to other sofa bed brands, like Bruno, who offer a 10-year guarantee.
It's always better to look for a brand with a longer guarantee period, especially if you're going to spend a lot of money.
That way, if anything goes wrong with the sofa bed, you can get a replacement or repair free of charge.
Is a Cocoon Sofa Bed worth it?
Customers say Cocoon offers the best sofa beds.
They are good quality and supposedly comfortable as both a sofa and a bed.
If you have ever dabbled in sofa beds for your guest bedroom or home office, you know this is basically unheard of. 🥲
With a range of sizes, fabrics and colour options, you can make your Cocoon Sofa Bed exactly how you want it.
You could even buy a king-size new sofa bed to make sure your guests have plenty of space at night.
All in all, Cocoon Sofa Beds have some fantastic products and a stellar reputation to back them up.
