In a land were space is often at a premium and a chair may consist of a pillow on the floor, they are a logical choice for bedding. They simply are taken out at night and folded up to be stored away in a closet during the day.

How long will my frame last? Always look for a futon frame that is made from solid hardwoods, avoid any frames that are made from particle board or MDF. Measure width and the distance between the slats on the back and seat decks. Slats should be at least two and a half inches wide and if the spacing is more than three inches, forget it. Even with the best mattress on the market you'll 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, they'll only add to the life of your frame.

While this makes them more like the kind of furniture non-Japanese expect, they still have unique features and simplicity that make them a great, cost-effective choice.

What are the pro's and con's to natural fibers vs. foams? How long should my futon mattress last? Feel is a rather subjective term; someone's 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. Look for foam that has a density no less than 1.2 pound per cubic foot. With foam, higher density usually equals a long lasting mattress that retains it feel. Natural fibers, mostly cotton, are good for futons that need more flexibility. For those of us that are traditionalist's a natural fiber and foam blend is a good choice when looking at a futon mattress.

The majority of frames, mattresses and covers that I sell are made in the USA. A claim that those mega marts won't even try to make. I strive to sell as much product that's made in the USA as possible. I live here, and want to promote American made products.
