    Does anyone remember these couches that fold down into a bed,typical 60's model? I bought a used one and am looking for another.

    Random topic to see if anyone has one for sale...

    Oh ... my mistake ... I got confused with the "fold" part. I should have known this, my aunt actually owned a couple of these many years ago

    I really just thought that davenport was another word for couch, at least that's hot my grandmother uses it, o_O that image looks awesome. I want one.

    Davenport sofas are now known as sofa beds.

    Here's an ad for one:

    The idea (unlike a futon or the orange fold down sofa posted earlier) was to have a sofa that could become a bed and then revert back to a sofa without having to unmake the bed. icon_wink.gif
