Futon. Thursday , April 19th , 2018 - 02:41:15 AM
The patents and inventions featured in this article are truly just a sampling of the many designs and innovations by various futon inventors who had the vision to create and design furniture in an all new light. The futon industry itself has grown up quite a bit since its humble beginnings in the early 80's and many futons you'll see today are based on these early concepts and designs. I found it fascinating to study the evolution of the futon from a simple tri-fold design into the sofa looking frames of today. The innovations that came from these designs really helped to move forward this line of furniture that we know today. Next time you see a futon frame I hope you'll think about these inventors and the legacy they've left on this furniture category.
If your dealer does not have a product specifications list, ask the dealer to discuss the overall construction. Bring a notepad and list the various reinforcements and explain why these features are beneficial to you. Remember that just because a specific item is listed does not mean it is special or unique. Also, companies often call futon parts by different names. A nylon glide to one company might be a plastic roller to another. Anytime you do not recognize the name of a particular part, try to get your dealer to explain it to you.
When investigating a futon frame consider these three things: 1) Hardwood will tends to be stronger than pinewood, 2) Solid wooden cross members will tend to outlast jointed cross members and 3) The More reinforcement the better. Most modern wood futon frames have six major parts; a left arm, a right arm, a back deck, a seat deck, and two stretcher rails (sometimes called cross rails). The hardware that fasten all of these wooden pieces together are most often made up of an ingenious bolt and barrel nut (dowel nut) system that act very much like little vice clamps that hold the joints in place. This makes futon frames easy to assemble and disassemble which can have many advantages.
