The shorter the warranty, the more likely you will be have to repair or replace something. Futons that are well designed, however, often outlast their warranties altogether. A solid hardwood futon frame with ample reinforcements, stress supports and angle brackets might last you 20 years or longer.

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.

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 may not be used to the design elements or particularly care for them for your space, but you can adopt some of the concepts to help create the serene space of your desires.
