What is SNooZA?

It’s a bed … IN an ottoman!


SNooZA is a space saving bed with multiple functionality. An ottoman at first glance but on closer inspection you’ll notice it has a zip at the bottom. If you flip it over and unzip the outer cover, inside is a Z shaped folding foam mattress … space-saving and extremely practical! Use it in the day as an ottoman, chair or table – then when you need a bed simply zip off the outer cover and you have a bed.

The beauty of this product is that it is light-weight, easy to move between rooms and it can be folded away in the day. Far more appealing than a mattress lying around or standing against a wall. The 14cm thick mattress is made from high quality foam that is firm and comfortable. Have a couple coming over? Two SNooZA’s when put together make an exact queen size bed. Just use a standard queen fitted sheet or mattress topper to keep them together.

SNooZA is the perfect sleeper-couch alternative. 

A Little SNooZA history:

SNooZA was designed and developed by owner Sally Audagnotti in March 2009. After seeing a fold up mattress with a dust cover from the UK, it sparked an idea – why not make a tight upholstered cover and make a multifunctional piece of furniture. Within 3 months a prototype was made and SNooZA was born. SNooZA is THE original ottoman sleepa. As an all woman SOUTH AFRICAN owned company when you purchase from SNooZA you are supporting local. 

Outer Coverswida jake aubergine

The outer covers come in a range of upholstery quality fabrics, in colours suitable for any room in your home. We use only top quality fabrics from Hertex Fabrics and Bartlett & Dunster. And if you can’t find a fabric or colour you like – no problem! We’ll custom make one for you.

Inner Covers


Our inner mattress is covered with a practical, soft, water repellant, dark grey microfibre fabric. This cover also has zips and can easily be removed and washed. So keeping your SNooZA clean and hygienic is really easy.

The Foam Mattress

When it comes to the foam, we have spared no expense. The grades of foam we have chosen (we have 2) are of the highest quality which makes SNooZA the best quality product available. This is what makes us stand out from our competitors. Our foam is firm which ensures stable spinal support but with a softness factor making it comfortable at the same time. Because the foam is completely stable once cured, it is also hygienic and allergy free.

Choosing your foam density:

SNooZA offers you the option to choose either our standard foam for children up to 75kg’s or high density foam for adults over 75kg’s. Another reason to choose SNooZA! High density foam is stronger so it will  extend the foams lifespan to accommodate the extra weight. The cost for the highest density foam is an extra R400 per SNooZA. 



What sizes does the SNooZA come in?

SNooZA’s are only available in 1 size – the wida SNooZA:

We used to manufacture the smalla SNooZA which was narrower but have discontinued this size as it proved to be less popular.


A SNooZA is 75cm wide, a standard length bed (1.9m) and the mattress is 14cm thick. As an ottoman it is 63cm  x 75cm x 42cm high.

Fitted sheets and waterproof mattress protectors are also available from SNooZA however standard single fitted sheets will work too.


SNooZA is the original fold up bed in an ottoman. It is also available in high density foam which sets it apart from cheaper copycat products available. We also offer custom made solutions should you wish to have a smaller or larger version made or a custom fabric outer cover. 

Putting 2 SNooZA’s together creates more options!

Two SNooZA’s together make a full queen size bed. Just put on a standard queen fitted sheet, mattress protector or mattress topper to keep the mattresses together.

Where can you use a SNooZA?

A SNooZA looks great anywhere – in a bedroom, a lounge, TV room, in a playroom as kids furniture. They are fantastic for sleepovers at home, holiday houses, granny’s house, camping – in fact anywhere where you might need a bed.

SNooZA’s in the Hospitality industry.

SNooZA’s are extremely popular in the hospitality industry. We have sold large quantities to B&B’s, guesthouses and even 5 star hotels. This is a practical solution for guest’s children. The staff love them because they are so light and easy to move between rooms and can be folded back to an ottoman during the day and left in the room.

Where can I buy a SNooZA?

SNooZA’s are only available on-line. 

Where is SNooZA BAsed?

SNooZA’s are custom made in Hout Bay, South Africa. We are a female owned South African company and we use local suppliers. Some of our fabrics are imported by our suppliers such as Bartlett & Dunster and Hertex.
