Introducing an Award Winning Contemporary Furniture Designer
Zed & Co / The Sofa Beds
Zed & Co are a contemporary sofa bed furniture company specialising in sofa beds in North Cornwall. We design and manufacture carefully crafted sofa beds with the inspiration taken from Alan Zoeftig’s award winning ‘Style 63’ design from the 60’s.
After studying at Camberwell and Central, St Martin’s School of art, Alan Zoeftig has designed and manufactured contemporary furniture for 45 years. In the process he’s won a number of International awards, most notably the Cantu Triennale in Italy in 1963.
Zoeftig & Company
In 1969 he started Zoeftig & Company with engineer Mick Carter. After his retirement and the sale of Zoeftig & Company, Zed & Co was formed in 2008 with his daughter Sara. This latest range of bed / sofas is the distillation of all these years of experience.
Quality & Detail
The range is produced from first class materials and worked to exact machined tolerances. These products demonstrate that attention to detail manages to overcome the problems usually associated with sofabeds and their conversion.
Zed & Co produce their convertible sofa range to the highest specification, maintaining Alan Zoeftig's integrity as a renowned designer / manufacturer. From his unflawed track record in the furniture design and production industry, among the minority where many have taken production out of the UK, Zed and Co strives to employ local people in a county where employment opportunities are limited, where production processes are not locally available production goes further afield but still within the UK. Alan Zoeftig's modern furniture can be seen in a wide variety of interior and exterior environments. Zed Sofabeds continue to carry his design ethos forwards.
Zed Sofa Beds have been featured on Channel 4 and in The Daily Telegraph. What's more, a Zed design, Style 63 was a runner up in the Blueprint Design awards at 100% Design Show in September 2008.
We saw the Style 63 at 100% Design. We hadn't come across any other sofa bed as contemporary, stylish and simple to convert. Zed & Co were responsive to our inquiry, they sent samples of fabrics for us to choose from based upon our requirements. Our sofa bed arrived within the specified delivery time, it was easy to assemble and is comfortable both as a sofa and bed. We love it and would recommend it to anyone.

I love the modern look and design of my sofa bed. It’s so easy to convert from sofa to bed. And it takes up less space than traditional style sofa beds. Because of its clever design the sofa can be smaller and look neater.

Our first guest - my 77 year old Mother-in-law came to stay- she slept on our style 63 for a week and verdict was good for comfortable restful nights! We love it. Thank you!
