Although pinewood futon frames dominated the market for many years, hardwood futon frame prices have continued to fall making them more prevalent and affordable. Although logic might suggest that hardwood futons are more indestructible than pine wood frames, there are many hardwood frames on the market that are more prone to catastrophic failure than others. However, with some basic knowledge about wooden futon frame construction, you will have more confidence when you are comparing models and prices.

However, as most of these pieces of furniture utilize a very similar mattress, futon frames are where most of the design innovations are focused. Therefore, when selecting a futon for your home, office, or dorm room, picking the right frame is essential. Thankfully, these frames are available in a fairly wide array of sizes and styles.

Retailers I've spoken to have said that the black metal futon frame is the number one service headache when it came to futons with over 95% of service issues being the failure of a black metal frame component. Replacing these parts were made more difficult by the fact the manufacturers were located overseas and obtaining the parts past the 90 day warranty period often involved the retailer having to purchase the replacement parts and charging the customer.
Peggy Santos Futon, 2018-03-28 18:04:36. Our store stopped carrying black metal frames a few years ago for many of the reasons listed above. We decided to shift away from low end products and concentrate on proven well made, quality higher end products. So many people walk through our furniture store and when offered a futon frame as a possible piece of furniture for their home are told by the customer, \"I bought one of those years ago at [insert mass merchant name here] and it was the most uncomfortable frame. It just didn't last very long.\" The experience of owning a black metal frame has turned off a large majority of consumers who would have found happiness and delight in owning solid wood frames made to last. It's really a shame as futons offer great flexibility in being both sofas and sleepers.

They are ideally suited for those that are working with limited space or are looking for an inexpensive alternative to more traditional furniture designs. They are widely available through just about every furniture retailer in the country and can be found in styles that fit into most modern design categories, from contemporary to mission. This kind of variety almost guarantees that there is a futon design for every décor, as well as for every budget.
Lynnette Rutledge Futon, 2018-03-29 16:25:25. One of the most vital actions before getting a futon bed is measuring the amount of space where you would want to place it. From there, you could decide which size of futon to get: the twin, full or the king/queen sizes. Futons take more space than the usual bunk beds so make certain that there are extra spaces to accommodate it. Once you open the futon, it might take up a lot more space than you initially thought of. If you plan to have other furniture to be placed adjacent to a futon, make sure it is easily movable to avoid hassle when opening up the futon.
Georgia Henderson Futon, 2018-03-30 10:35:16. In 1990 Gary Shaffield & Robert Fireman filed a futon design patent utilizing a tension spring to facilitate movement from position to position. (Patent Number 4996730). This design was very similar in look to the 1985 patent involving Robert Fireman and many of the structural components and aesthetics of these two designs featured in both patents when compared were similar. The design of this frame however focused on the legs built into the seat section that when pulled out would engage and then when the frame was retracted featured a stop that helped prevent the legs from becoming entangled with the base. Incorporated into this design was a tension spring that helped with the operation of the frame. Many early futons would go through refinements in design and function and this is often how improvements in frames would be created and how they found their way into the products we would purchase. It should be noted that in my studies of futon patents many other patents in futon designs are held by Robert Fireman in both tri-fold and bi-fold designs. He is considered one of the early pioneers in futon design throughout the industry.
Cecilia Velazquez Futon, 2018-03-29 08:49:55. One of the earliest futon patents I was able to locate was for Nikita Grigoriev who filed for a futon patent in 1983 (Patent Number 4538308) for what he called \"Convertible Furniture\". The drawings represent what we today would call a tri-fold frame which uses 3 flat sections that make up the seating and sleeping portions of the frame and work in conjunction with each other to go from sofa to bed. I found it interesting how he described the operation of a futon as a piece of furniture which is convertible from a bed to a sofa which utilizes the geometry of its component parts to facilitate conversion from one mode (sofa) to another mode (bed). I think this abstract statement by Mr. Grigoriev does very well in explaining the nature of futon furniture and how they function.

There is a lot of streamline designs available in the market now, some are in contemporary style, while some are in modern.

Would it be more for sitting and relaxing, more of for sleeping purposes or all of the above. Know also where would you want to have it positioned, in your son's room or on the guests' quarters. Knowing the primary function of futon can also help you assess which type of mattresses to purchase. A bulkier mattress may be needed if you are using it for sleeping purposes, the wooden frame can also provide a sturdy foundation.

Even if you have previously bought a futon in the past during your college days, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised by the excellent breakthroughs in the craftsmanship that is applied to these new designs. While you can still find some very simple and basic designs that feature the traditional box shaped frames, which definitely provide excellent options for those of you on a more restricted budget, there are now many other designs available that feature some very intricate and detailed designs.
