Dixie Sleep Sofa Bed Sizes & Dimensions

According to Magaly, the Dixie is a compact sofa bed. With a body width of 80.5 inches, the Dixie Queen Sofa Bed almost qualifies it as an apartment-sized sofa. This can be attributed to the Dixie’s narrow arms which take up minimal real estate, says Magaly.

With this being said, keep in mind that the size of the Dixie will significantly expand once transformed into a Queen bed. 

With a general idea of the Dixie’s size, it is still crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your space, both in the shape of a sofa and bed. 

Moreover, it is important to consider how the Dixie Queen Sleep Sofa will support your unique body type in the upright position. Generally speaking, the size of the Dixie is recommended to those between the height of 5’10” to 6’2”. 

More specifically, Magaly says that the shallow seat and short back provides excellent lumbar support for those with shorter legs and a longer torso. 

The best way to be sure that the Dixie Queen Sleep Sofa offers the comfort and support that you are looking for is to visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and try it out for yourself. A design consultant will help you perform a sit test to ensure the sofa fit is right for your unique body type.

Everything at La-Z-Boy is customizable, including the Dixie Queen Sleep Sofa. You have the ability to make the Dixie uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades. 

Upholstery/Cover Options

The upholstery cover you choose for your Dixie Sofa Bed greatly impacts its overall look and feel.

Further, the Dixie Sofa Bed is not offered in specific patterns. Magaly says that due to the tufting and design of the seat cushions, “a pattern on the Dixie would look like a JigSaw puzzle gone wrong”. It is best to stick to a simple colour and beautiful texture on the Dixie. 

This wide selection of fabric includes the following premium-grade specialty fabrics…

Stain Resistant
