Futon. Saturday , April 21st , 2018 - 12:02:29 PM
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.
If you want to learn how to incorporate futons with high end design, there are many magazines and websites that offer ideas on high end decorating and interior design. The best way to decorate a room if you do not have a lot of decorating skill is to hire an interior decorator or imitate what you see in the photographs that look best to you. There are few hard right and wrong answers when it comes to decorating your own home. If it looks good to you, then that is what is important.
Wooden futon frames come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. Although pinewood futon frames dominated the market for many years, hardwood futon frame prices have continued to fall making them more prevalent and affordable. Although logic might suggest that hardwood futons are more indestructible than pine wood frames, there are many hardwood frames on the market that are more prone to catastrophic failure than others. However, with some basic knowledge about wooden futon frame construction, you will have more confidence when you are comparing models and prices.
