Sabourin. Futon. October 19th , 2017.
I believe that futons are some of the most versatile pieces of furniture on the market today. Are you looking for something for your guest bedroom? A sofa that can convert into a bed when companys over? Would you like a beautiful piece of furniture for your small space? Maybe your door way is not wide enough to get that expensive sofa through? If youve asked yourself any of those questions, a futon is for you.
Futon frames and mattresses can go just about anywhere, I havent seen a space that they dont accommodate. Ive seen the frames I sell go into third story rooms in those gorgeous 1800s New England Colonials. While they are beautiful homes, they are quite a chore to move anything into or out of. I have sold many Futon Frames and Mattresses to customers in New York City, where space is at such a premium, that Ive lost count.
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.
However a futon bed mattress made from cotton and polyester is quite flexible. A futon mattress made from 100% polyester is by far the lightest of all; it also rates well for firmness and rigidity. A futon bed mattress made using inner springs is by far the heaviest and would only be used when the futon is almost always used as a bed. As you might expect, the rigidity of a futon mattress using inner springs is excellent.
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.
