Futon. Sunday , April 15th , 2018 - 00:17:01 AM
Futons usually have exposed frames and that implies that the frame material and design is something you have to think about when shopping for cheap futons. Metal is desired because of its longevity, and its inexpensive nature. When you are looking for a classier outlook, there are wooden frames, although these are somewhat more expensive. If you are decor conscious, you can explore the different finishes you get, to find something that will complement your decor.
Another early futon design patent was filed in 1985 (Patent Number 4642823) assigned to Robert Fireman's Furniture Gallery, Inc. invented by William B. Wiggins. What was interesting about this early take on futon design was the incorporation of arms on the sides of the futon which allowed the seat and back sections to integrate into the arms and allow for operation without having to rearrange the futon. This early design featured two pivoting swing pieces attached from the back rails into the back section. The seat and back sections were connected together using steel pins. What I found most interesting about this design is that it effectively converted the futon from sofa to bed from the front. Once in the bed position additional legs were extended down for support. Additionally a dowel and rod interlocked with the seat and back section to safely lock the two in a horizontal position. This design would be considered a bi-fold by today's standards which means that 2 sections are used to create the seating and sleeping portions of the frame itself.
After determining the functionality and the size, you can now look on other minor criteria like the style and design of the futon. Know which style of futon are you looking for, parallel it to your tastes and also your child's preferences. Futon may come in conventional or modern options. If you want to go with the more traditional appeal, you can select the ones with frames made from hardwood. If you prefer a modern and conventional style, go with metal or just simply have the combination if you want to have both features. Futon covers may also be important, you may want to have it patterned after the room's design or get one that is more eye-catching.
