Because the bars were round and the mattresses had nothing in the way of support, you could lay on the mattress and feel each bar across the mattress. For some this may have been all they could afford in the way of futon. Unfortunately the import manufacturers of these frames and mattresses weren't helping anyone to get a comfortable sofa bed with the materials being used.

You can find plenty of beveled solid wood designs, such as side panels with center picket accents that make is so that a futon is no longer something you need to feel ashamed of and kept hidden in the back rooms of your home. Instead, you can now proudly feature any one of the latest futon fashions in the front rooms of your home, actually displaying them as one of the main interior design focal points of your home.

There is just not enough materials or quality of construction to justify these frames as a viable furniture solution for consumers. It should also make people question purchasing one of these frames when they only carry a 30-90 day warranty. Any manufacturer who warranties a piece of furniture for this amount of time doesn't expect it to last very long and neither should you as the consumer. 98% of our futon related service issues over a 10 year period resulted from failures with black metal frames. Often within the first year of ownership.
Lana Duke Futon, 2017-12-31 04:39:00. Futons usually have exposed frames and that implies that the frame material and design is something you have to think about when shopping for cheap futons. Metal is desired because of its longevity, and its inexpensive nature. When you are looking for a classier outlook, there are wooden frames, although these are somewhat more expensive. If you are decor conscious, you can explore the different finishes you get, to find something that will complement your decor.
Peggy Santos Futon, 2017-12-30 08:49:54. The first problem with black metal frames is the round metal bars that make up the seat and back sections of these frames. Where as wood futon frames are using flat slats, black metal frames have hollow round bars. Thinner mattresses would slide through the gaps between the round bars. On wood futons this was never a problem. The other issue with the hollow bars is that if enough weight was placed on a spot they would begin to bend. The issue became so bad that a 90 day warranty was put in place by most manufacturers of these frames.
Etta Mayo Futon, 2017-12-28 07:32:06. First, let's talk about fabric. Do you want cotton? Or leather? Or even denim? Maybe you want a futon sofa that looks like a regular sofa. They make covers in upholstery fabric, too. What fabric you choose depends on your own personal style and the needs of your family. If you have a big family, you should save yourself the grief and get a heavy duty futon cover. A simple denim will be inexpensive and wear like a good pair of jeans. If that is too dark, you might want to shop for a upholstery fabric. It is designed to stand up to the wear and tear of daily use.
semangat Futon, 2017-12-29 18:42:52. What you should know is that there was a break or separation in the quality for futons that emerged in recent years brought about by many mass merchant retail stores. The futon industry up to this point had been dominated by futon specialty stores and retailers who committed themselves to purchasing products made by the many United States futon manufacturers. These different companies were responsible for the innovations and stunning designs being created in solid woods like oak, ash and maple throughout the futon industry. Many of these frames were built as good or better than many conventional sofas in the market since they utilized hardwood construction in their frames.
Lynnette Rutledge Futon, 2017-12-28 15:34:14. As we have already mentioned, futon frames need reinforcement. The more reinforcement a futon has the more likely it will stand the constant abuse of friends and family. After all, futon frames are not only mechanisms with moving parts, they must also support the weight of your futon mattress and people as well. A general rule is that you should look for as much reinforcement as possible. You could simplify things by keeping a scorecard and counting off the number of angle brackets, stress supports and rub guards a given futon comes equipped with.

Futons make excellent editions to the media room or entertainment room. They also work well in guest rooms, because it will allow you to use the room as a sitting area, reading area or television room when it is not being used. Futons are also great for kids rooms because they can enjoy games, television or visiting with friends without having an extra piece of furniture.
Cecilia Velazquez Futon, 2017-12-30 06:05:08. Check the width of the slats they are supporting. The slats are the multiple short boards that span the seat and back deck in a ladder-like design that are usually only visible when the mattress is removed. Are the futon slats wide or narrow?
Georgia Henderson Futon, 2017-12-28 15:54:34. Futons as a category were born almost 25 years ago in the form of wood frames. These frames were simple and offered conversion from a sofa to bed by operation of the frame. Wood frame designs advanced much over the years and eventually led to wood futon frames that looked like conventional furniture. Many of these pieces of furniture borrowed from real world furniture construction techniques in the form of doweled construction, French dovetail joints and steel on steel hardware connections offering greater quality and flexibility in design and quality. The workmanship of these frames can easily be seen in the higher end models offered today and justifies the retail pricing you see for these pieces as being of the highest quality available in this category of furniture.
