Futon. Thursday , April 19th , 2018 - 05:03:46 AM
Having worked in furniture for many years I have always believed strongly in that you get what you pay for or that the value of what you're buying is in direct relation to the quality of the product and the price placed on those goods or services. I also believe that some products are capable of giving an entire line of furniture a bad name due to their specific lack of quality and unjustly so because one type of product doesn't represent the qualities of an entire line of furniture. No better example of this can be said than what black metal futon frames have done against the futon industry in the last 10 years. In this article I'll explain my position about the negative aspects these metal frames provide and why it would be best for consumers and retailers alike to move away from these frames that are giving the industry a bad name.
The modern futon designs nowadays are much related to its frame. You can buy wooden or metal frame for your futons and as both has their own advantage over another. Depending on what kind of design you are having in your room, metal would bring modern kind of look while wooden would help you with elegance. Even if it is a small room, you should not hold yourself back from giving your best in designing it. With its efficiency and durability, futons would be a great addition to your house regardless of its size.
During the 1990's however cheap import futon frames made from hollow tubular steel were introduced into the American retail market. These came with imported mattresses that were constructed to be no more than 5\" to 6\" thick and contained ground up textile or fabric scrap. Various colored outer coverings that were not removable were tufted around the mattress materials making these difficult to clean. They retailed very cheap and individuals on a budget recognized the futon design from higher end wood models and felt these were indeed bargains since futons had a very good reputation for longevity and quality construction. Unfortunately these black tubular frames would begin to give futons a bad name.
