Sabourin. Futon. October 19th , 2017.
Natural fibers, cotton and linen are nice and soft to begin with, but can wear faster than synthetics. Synthetic fibers; polyester, nylon, rayon and such; might not be quite as soft but they last longer than natural fibers. Synthetic fibers have come a long way, they are constantly being improved and they hold vivid dyes that cotton and linen cant. A good compromise between Natural and Synthetic fibers is blends of the two, which are in abundance in the futon cover market.
It may surprise them to learn that modern futons are different. The word futon is used to describe certain types of furniture that may not resemble a traditional piece of furniture. Other times, manufacturers have different terms to describe what people would think of as a futon. Traditionally, a futon is a wooden frame that can be transformed into a couch or a bed. This piece of furniture has been altered by manufactures so that the word can be defined as a piece of furniture that serves more than one purpose.
To make a long story short, Ive sold futons across the country, to a wide variety of people and homes. Ive seen futons go to college kids in their dorm rooms, and to families in their living rooms. I am proud to provide a service that is appreciated by so many. So take a look at the futon frames, mattresses, and accessories on the market today and find the futon that is just right for you and your needs.
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.
Early designs involved a steel tooth design that would fit into pocket welds on the arms. These would snap off over use. The alternative design was to run a bolt through the arms and into the rails. While better it still did not address the issue of bending stretcher rails. Bent hinges also added another issue that would happen from use over time. While not as common as the other problems this issue still led to the failure of many black metal frames.
