Best Futon Stores

Futons have become very popular in recent years. Whether you're looking for a piece of furniture for your studio apartment or are simply looking for an unobtrusive place for guests to sleep, a futon might be the ideal choice for you. A futon is a space-saving piece of furniture with a configurable frame that can be folded in the middle or laid flat-enabling the futon to be used as either a bed or a couch.

There are three elements to a futon couch: the frame, the mattress, and the mattress cover. Futon frames can be wood, wicker, rattan, or metal, further enabling you to customize the futon's look. Typically futon mattresses feature high density foam, polyester batting, and even springs-adding to their comfort level.

Futon mattresses resemble traditional mattresses in size and comfort, however, a futon is often much less expensive than buying a traditional couch or bed. Additionally, futons usually feature removable covers that can make them even more versatile-allowing you to change the look of the futon to match your changing decor.

Futons first became popular in America In the 1960's. At that time, individuals wanted a simpler way of life, and a futon was an inexpensive choice that was perfect for small, compact areas. When futons gained in popularity, the materials used in futon mattresses changed. Today, a futon mattress is much thicker and rigid than those of the past.

In fact, futon mattresses can be purchased in several different weights and thickness - giving customers the ability to select a futon mattress with the appropriate amount of support for them.When looking for a futon, there are certain factors you need to consider. Some of these include:

  • Selection. Does the futon company offer a variety of futons and futon accessories?
  • Return Policy. Does the futon company enable you to return your futon for a full refund if you're not satisfied? How many days do you have to make returns?
  • Ease of Use. Is the futon company's website easy to use? Can you easily search for a particular type of futon? Is the website organized and easy to navigate? has reviewed and ranked the best futon stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right futon for you!
