Alternatives to curved shelf behind gaucho?

We renovated a 1969 Overlander last year. Fortunately it was in great shape and just needed cosmetic updates. We were able to keep the original gaucho structure but I made new upholstered cushions for it. We use it as a couch during the day and pull it out as a bed at night.
The curved shelf along the front wall seems to provide necessary support for the couch position, but it drives me crazy when sleeping at night, I’m constantly hitting my knees on it when turning from side to side. Has anyone come up with an alternative? Something that can provide support for the couch but doesn’t get in the way while sleeping?

You could modify the shelf to make it removable.

One way would entail installing brackets (like the one pictured below) on the wall at either end and under the windows. and a rod under the shelf.
