I've seen the frames I sell go into third story rooms in those gorgeous 1800's 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 I've lost count. Don't forget those rural areas, where going to the furniture store is sometimes a day's drive.

Derived from the original Japanese futon, the "shikibuton", which was a thin cotton filled mattress which was placed on a Tatami Mat, on the floor. Living quarters were very small, and families were large, so these mattresses were rolled up daily, and unrolled and slept on at night. Americans found the futon convenient and affordable, but this more original type of futon mattress was not very comfortable, yet they were still very popular among college students, apartment residents and first-time homeowners because they were very economical, space savers, and multipurpose, quickly and easily converting from a couch to a bed, and bed to couch. The frames were very crude, yet effective frames which are still made today, similar to the 3 Way Lounger, frames, and were mostly made of pine and fir. They were also easy to assemble and disassemble making them easy to move from place to place, perhaps in the back of a VW Van. Many people now refer to the futon mattress, as a futon, or the futon frame as a futon, or both the futon mattress and futon frame as a futon.

Because they come flat in about six primary parts they are easy to get around tough corners in a home or into tight spaces where most furniture can't go. Why is this important? Most upholstered furniture can't be easily disassembled to fit through tight spaces. Futons can, and can easily. In most cases you simply take each part in one at a time and then assemble it in the room. What could be easier?

This creates a sectional look out of individual pieces of furniture that are more functional separately than a traditional sectional.

During the day, futons transform into comfortable couches and sofas and at night they can be folded out to transform into equally comfortable beds.
