Gallia. Futon. October 05th , 2017.
When I first got into the Futon business about six years ago, I was under the impression, as a lot of folks are, that futons werent nice enough for anywhere other than college dorms and first apartments. Well, things have certainly changed. This is not to say that those unfinished tri-fold frames with thin all cotton futon mattresses dont exist anymore, they do, but there are also some very nice frames, mattresses, and futon covers in todays market.
What are the pros and cons to natural fibers vs foams? How long should my futon mattress last? Feel is a rather subjective term; someones firm could be too soft for another. As a general rule of thumb, my customers like a firm futon for sleeping, a soft futon for sitting, and in between mattress for a sofa that converts into a guest bed. Foam futons usually retain the firmness they have when purchased, but only if the foam is of an acceptable quality.
Even with the best mattress on the market youll feel slats that are too thin, or to far apart. If you use a futon frame with substandard, unsupported slats you run the risk of ruining your mattress. Try to look for frames that feature mortise and tennon joinery and metal on metal connections, theyll only add to the life of your frame. Futon mattresses are a whole other ball game. Do you want something soft, firm, or in between?
At first it was widely regarded as a great addition to the futon family of products. Finally, a futon that could be offered at a much a lower price point. Black metal frames were being imported from China, Malaysia and Taiwan. Many of the early black metal frames were packaged with an import mattress made up of ground up textile materials and a colored covering with tufts. These packages were often anywhere in price from $199 - $249 and started out in specialty futon shops as a great way to introduce customers on a budget into a lower priced futon option.
If you are looking for a way to make a room versatile, a futon may be the answer. Perhaps you have moved into a small studio, and you need your bed to serve as a couch during the day. You may be starting your first semester in college, and you want to make the most of your dorm room. You might want to have a place for guests to stay when they visit while your spouse wants an office to work from home.
