They are now being used as actual furniture due to the beautiful designs of the frames, as well as the advancements in futon mattresses. Some of them rival the feel of the finest sofa or bed mattresses available and are made with very high quality combinations of ingredients, including several types of Memory Foam, Latex, Springs, Wool, Soy Foams, Cotton, Organic Cotton, Polyester, Spring Cores, Silk, Cashmere, and more. There are also Natural, Green, and Organic Futons for those with chemical sensitivities or that just want to get away from all of the harmful chemicals that are put into bedding these days. Futons are no longer just a temporary bed or couch for college students or kids.

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 can't. A good compromise between Natural and Synthetic fibers is blends of the two, which are in abundance in the futon cover market.

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 1990's but then the black metal futon frame came onto the scene.

While not as common as the other problems this issue still led to the failure of many black metal frames. The hinges were attached to the arms of the futon frames with two bolts and two nuts. While this design was OK the hinges themselves would fail when too much weight was applied to one side or the other. These would also bend out rendering them useless in the operation of the futon.

The makes any type of home repairs extremely irritating at best. Futons are very open though and everything is easily accessible. Often, repairs to the frame can be made by novices and parts replaced at low cost.
