Futon. Friday , April 20th , 2018 - 05:16:31 AM
One of the earliest futon patents I was able to locate was for Nikita Grigoriev who filed for a futon patent in 1983 (Patent Number 4538308) for what he called \"Convertible Furniture\". The drawings represent what we today would call a tri-fold frame which uses 3 flat sections that make up the seating and sleeping portions of the frame and work in conjunction with each other to go from sofa to bed. I found it interesting how he described the operation of a futon as a piece of furniture which is convertible from a bed to a sofa which utilizes the geometry of its component parts to facilitate conversion from one mode (sofa) to another mode (bed). I think this abstract statement by Mr. Grigoriev does very well in explaining the nature of futon furniture and how they function.
Rub guards, commonly referred to as striker plates are a good thing to look for as well. These metal plates keep the wood wearing away where two piece of wood come into contact while in motion. These are usually located on the front and rear stretcher rails. The rear stretcher rail must absorb the impact of the back deck when it drops down while the front cross rail must endure the rubbing of the seat deck while it slides back and forth. The metal plates help to buffer the stretcher rails from this abuse.
If you have always thought that elegant design needed to be very intricate and expensive, think again. You also don't have to go with a real skimpy version of things to get an elegant look either. It isn't the case with fashion or interior design. More specifically, it doesn't apply to your bedroom design. You may find that Japanese home design is a great solution for you. Futon beds are just one example of this. A Japanese futon mattress is a very flexible piece of bedroom furniture. Consider this: Japanese design has evolved just like all interior design over the years, but the main elements of their design have remained for hundreds if not thousands of years. They must be doing something right or it would have changed.
