Gallia. Futon. October 18th , 2017.
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.
Secondly, it should be borne in mind that it isnt the futon frame that provides the comfort when either sitting or sleeping on a futon: it is the futon mattress that provides the comfort. A futon bed mattress made for a tri-fold futon frame is not as thick as that for a bi-fold futon bed frame. Therefore, if you intend to sleep on your futon regularly you might be best to buy a bi-fold futon bed mattress: a thicker mattress tends to provide more support.
Rigidity of a futon bed mattress is more important when the futon is being used mainly as a sofa. Flexibility basically defines how easy folding the futon mattress is going to be. If you are going to folding the mattress daily from sofa to bed back to sofa again, then buying a futon bed mattress with a lot of flexibility makes sense. Futon bed mattresses are made from a variety of materials.
Avoid metal futon frames that are made more to hit a particular price point then they are to be a piece of furniture that can offer longevity as a dependable sofa and sleeper for your home. The right futon can provide you and your family with years of quality use. The wrong futon frame will simply become disposable furniture. Futons as a category were born almost 25 years ago in the form of wood frames. These frames were simple and offered conversion from a sofa to bed by operation of the frame.
Dont forget those rural areas, where going to the furniture store is sometimes a days drive. So, you like what youve heard so far? Well, it gets even better. The majority of frames, mattresses and covers that I sell are made in the USA. A claim that those mega marts wont even try to make. I strive to sell as much product thats made in the USA as possible. I live here, and want to promote American made products.
