Your pic shows at the very least that the frame and sling don't take up alot of space when folded and placed up against the wall.
Chuck, the twins never had a back to them, as they were not intended to be couches. There is no reason, however, why you couldn't install cushions on the part that you would lean against if it were a couchback. If nothing else, it would keep you from smacking your head into it in the middle of the night.
