It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be. The first problem with black metal frames is the round metal bars that make up the seat and back sections of these frames. Where as wood futon frames are using flat slats, black metal frames have hollow round bars. Thinner mattresses would slide through the gaps between the round bars. On wood futons this was never a problem.
You may see the dimensions listed as 60x84. These dimensions include the armrests, which serve as the head and footboards of the futon when it is open as a bed. In this description, the armrests are each 2 wide, so you know the total amount of space you will need for the futon. A full sofa has futon dimensions of 54x75. They may be listed as a full sofa, lounger, or click clack bed.
Whether it was softwoods or hardwoods, the frames featured good fundamental designs made from solid wood. These futon frames would incorporate new working mechanisms and ideas in operation that made futons appealing not only in their design but in the quality of materials and construction that went into them. The futon industry was doing well and growing with these frames heading into the 1990s but then the black metal futon frame came onto the scene.
