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.
Peggy Santos Futon, 2018-03-07 13:10:35. Another early futon design patent was filed in 1985 (Patent Number 4642823) assigned to Robert Fireman's Furniture Gallery, Inc. invented by William B. Wiggins. What was interesting about this early take on futon design was the incorporation of arms on the sides of the futon which allowed the seat and back sections to integrate into the arms and allow for operation without having to rearrange the futon. This early design featured two pivoting swing pieces attached from the back rails into the back section. The seat and back sections were connected together using steel pins. What I found most interesting about this design is that it effectively converted the futon from sofa to bed from the front. Once in the bed position additional legs were extended down for support. Additionally a dowel and rod interlocked with the seat and back section to safely lock the two in a horizontal position. This design would be considered a bi-fold by today's standards which means that 2 sections are used to create the seating and sleeping portions of the frame itself.

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. The modern futons that are sold outside Japan however are a lot different than the original mattress as it is sold with different materials to upgrade its comfort level and to make it transformable into couches at day time.

They are also better on bad backs than traditional mattress and box spring sets usually are. This is due to the firm mattress being thinner and keeping your spine straighter during the night.
Edith Carter Futon, 2018-03-08 20:43:08. If you're shopping for a futon, here are some things to think about if you see a black metal futon frame in a mass merchant or big box store. Consider the fact that most solid wood futon frames carry a warranty anywhere from a year to a lifetime warranty. Black metal futon frames have a 90 day warranty. It says something about how much the manufacturer stands behind the product. Black metal frames are made overseas. Expect to wait for a part if something breaks or if you're past that 90 day warranty, expect to pay for all replacement parts and associated costs to get your frame up and running again. Consider too that parts may also no longer be available should something break. Metal bars allow mattresses to slide into and through the gaps between each bar. This puts lumps in your mattress and can make the futon quite uncomfortable when compared to flat wooden slats on wood frames.

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.
