Chinese New Year is coming soon and it is time for a good old spring cleaning. Much have changed since I moved into this tiny room three years ago. One of the few things that remained is my sofa bed.

The IKEA PS HÅVET sofa bed is the perfect solution to my microscopic, but cosy, bedroom. HÅVET is one of the mattresses which you can to choose from. I had some reservation about sleeping on a sofa bed, but after 3 years, I can say they were unfounded. In fact, it is more comfortable for me as compared to my previous spring mattress. But, since it works more like a futon, it is really not for everyone.

I just love the texture of the Muji blanket which perfect for me in our erratic Singapore weather.

I had a quilt before, and, after a year or so, I got sick and tired of keeping it in the storage underneath the bed. Leaving it on the sofa didn’t seem very pleasant to the eye either. And, it was a bit too warm anyway. So, I bought a Muji blanket and it works perfectly.

I like how the timeless the LÖVÅS looks.

One of the biggest reasons for getting the sofa bed was so that I could put a mahjong table in my room. I had fantasied late nights of endless mahjong sessions with some of my buddies. But, it never happened. Instead, as seen below, it is being utilised as Wang Zai’s drying station now.

  1. Been looking to buy myself a sofa bed coz I been sleeping on the floor. Would you suggest the IKEA PS or the Karlaby? I worry which one is more sturdy….

    1. Unfortunately, I have not tried the Karlaby and won’t be able to do fair comparison. But, what I can tell you is that I had the IKEA PS for 3 years, and it hasn’t given me any problems. Just make sure to try out the 3 different futons (LÖVÅS, MURBO and HÅVET) available before buying. Sorry, I couldn’t be any more of a help!

      1. Thank you for the comment. Ahahahaha I think I looked like an idiot trying the mattresses and the sofa beds at ikea. Teeeheehee.
