Faith Booth. Futon. March 08th , 2018.
Futons can also be made from a variety of materials, although wood and metal are typically the most commonly used. The decision to choose one over the other is really a matter of personal preference than anything else. Wood tends to be a \"warmer\" material and is often preferred by those that like a more traditional aesthetic to their furniture and home décor. And because wood can be easily stained, chances are one can easily find the right hue to match any existing furniture. Metal frames are most often used in contemporary design styles, as well as for many of the less expensive futons. Steel and aluminum tend to be the most commonly used metals because they are both easily shaped and are extremely durable. Furthermore, metal can be painted to match any existing décor or color scheme.
The problem came from the fact that the seat and back section contained round metal bars spot welded in a couple of places. Since these were hollow, if enough force or weight was applied to a section of these bars they would bend or break out. People were finding that the fail rate on these frames to be quite high and when they would try to return them to the stores they would discover these frames only carried a 90 day warranty. Hardly the type of warranty that would suggest this piece of furniture could provide at least a couple years of use. Instead the manufacturers seemed to be satisfied that 90 days was an adequate time of warranty for their products. I would compare this to an automobile manufacturer who warranties a car for the first 3,000 miles. They're basically telling you that after a few months of driving your vehicle is now out of warranty and if anything happens to your vehicle you'll need to buy another one or pay for parts and servicing as you've met the expected life of your vehicle. Quite unbelievable, really.
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.
Another issue the black metal frames suffered from were bending stretcher bars or rails. Again the hollow nature of these strecther rails presented issues with breakage and bending. Early designs involved a steel tooth design that would fit into pocket welds on the arms. These would snap off over use. The alternative design was to run a bolt through the arms and into the rails. While better it still did not address the issue of bending stretcher rails.
A furniture like this is often used in houses with spare rooms, like a TV room accoutrement. This space saver type of furniture has good appeal not only on youngsters but also in grown-ups. Because not only it saves so much space because of its convertibility, but those ones made up with quality are durable and made up of good materials that are very cozy to use.
