Your Guide To Buying a Futon

By Yehudah Posnick

    The word futon in Japanese means “round cattail”. It was originally a round cushion filled with cattail leaves. Today's futons are usually from cotton, wool, polyester, or foam. The futon is a piece of furniture that can be used as a bed or cot, and then folded away during the day to serve as a chair. This is a means of utilizing a limited amount of space in an apartment. As the futon started becoming popular in the West, it was modified slightly, by having the cushion put into a frame. But even with the frame, it still retains its “convertible” nature. There is still a wide range of futon designs and styles. Here is a guide to some of the best types of futons on the market.

    • Japanese futon: This consists of a thin mattress filled with cotton, wool, or synthetic material.

    • Western futon: This is more like a couch, where the mattress is placed in a wood or metal frame. The frame can be folded to serve as a chair, or to lay flat to serve as a couch.

    There are three major parts to the futon:

    • Frame: This is typically made from wood or metal, and is hinged so as to convert from a sofa to a bed. There are three futon frame types:

      • Bi-fold: This has the appearance of a couch, where the back section can be laid flat to accommodate sleeping.

      • Tri-fold frame: Here, the mattress folds in three parts. It has the appearance of a reclining chair, which can be laid flat into a bed. It can be with or without armrests.

      • Loveseat futon frame: This is a futon that can be folded into a sofa position, lounge position (where the seat is extended outwards), or bed position (where all three sections lay perfectly flat).

    • Mattress: The mattress has to be suitable for both sitting and sleeping, so it should be able to be firm when upright (and not bunch up due to gravity).

    • Cover: The futon's cover protects the mattress from spills and stains. You can have an assortment of covers, to keep the futon from getting damp from sweat. You can also have a variety of styles of covers.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Assembly: Often you'll have to assemble the futon yourself. The Nirvana Westfield Wood Futon was reputed to have a very quick assembly time, of around 90 minutes. You have to be careful not to lose any of the parts, however.

    • Mattress conceals the frame: Some people like a futon where the cushion hides the frame entirely. That helps the futon blend into the décor of the room more nicely.

    • Folds easily: Make sure that your futon converts easily from sofa/lounge chair/bed easily. Some people complain that they have to take the cushion off in order to properly convert the frame.

    • Keeping the futon dry: Because the futon can become wet through perspiration, it is important to dry it out periodically. There is a device called a futon dryer, which is like a vacuum cleaner, but it blows hot air onto the futon, to dry it. Alternatively, you can dry it out in the sun.

    • Getting a thick mattress: It's noticed that a futon mattress that is less than 5 inches thick will thin out over time. You may start to feel the wooden slats of the futon frame under the mattress. So, a thicker mattress is definitely worth it. There are also different support levels of futon mattresses, ranging from soft, medium, to firm.

    • Material of the Futon Frame: A metal frame is lighter, and converts more easily into a bed or lounge chair than a wooden frame. But the wooden frame has the advantage of being more sturdy and aesthetically pleasing.

    • Material of the futon cushion: A wool cushion will be the longest lasting, and also be warmer than the other materials. But wool futon cushions are the most expensive, and some people are allergic to wool. Polyester cushions are the least expensive, but they tend to “bottom out”, where the material flattens out in sections, becoming less comfortable. There is less of a chance of a person having an allergic reaction to polyester, however. There are also combinations of foam surrounded with cotton, or innerspring cushions, where there is cotton, foam and polyester surrounding a set of springs, like a traditional bed.

    • Bunk bed-futon: An intriguing idea is the two-level futon: the lower level is essentially a regular futon, which serves as a couch or bed. But this features an upper level that is a sleeping area as well. This economizes on space even more efficiently.
