Dodge (Patent Number 5513398) for a futon that featured a tilt mechanism. This allowed a transfer from the bed position to the sofa position using guide slots or routed out grooves using rollers to move up and down the seat and back sections of the futon frame. This design would soon be emulated by many other manufacturers in that the arms had become the central focal point of the operation of the futon frame.

To maximize small spaces, the Japanese people fold their bed and store it in the closet while not in use so the room can be used to do accommodate other activities.

I can honestly say that as a retailer it is very frustrating to know that stores still carry low end black metal frames. My intentions in this article are not to be harsh but I really hope retailers figure out that low end products made to hit a particular price point are not doing consumers or themselves any great service. Consumers deserve quality well made products at reasonable prices based on the materials and labor that went into that product. When this doesn't happen expectations aren't met. Disappointment and dissatisfaction soon follow and the consumer is left with a negative feeling towards the product. The intent of this article was to bring forth the experiences I've had with this product line not only from having retailed it but from what customers have shared with me about these products. I feel strongly that black metal futon frames should be avoided by both retailers and consumers alike. If you've had a negative experience with these frames I would encourage you to not judge the entire futon industry by these particular products. If you're a consumer I encourage you to shop a futon retailer or futon specialty store and discover the \"real\" world of futons and what they have to offer for both you and your home.

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.

Often referred to as easy upright, automatic upright, and half a dozen other terms, this feature makes conversion from bed back to sofa a much easier task than in the past. Usually, the seat deck is used in some fashion to create a lever. When you push down on the seat, the back comes up saving your back. This can be especially advantageous to those who do not have a lot of upper body strength. Heavier mattresses can make this feature a desirable addition, but this system can put some adverse stress on your futon frame if it is not designed properly or if the system is too complex. Ask your dealer to explain in detail about these features when in doubt.

The problems that exist in the futon industry however result from specific manufacturers wanting to take a low end, low price approach to building products that can be retailed in the big box stores at the lowest price possible.

However, as most of these pieces of furniture utilize a very similar mattress, futon frames are where most of the design innovations are focused.

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.
