We could feel the wooden slats of our futon frame through our lumpy, old futon mattress. I'd been shopping around online when I finally decided on this one. It's true about it's tight packaging! I was nervous I was going to cut through the material! (It's shrinkwrapped for easy shipping, but you can BARELY get a pair of scissors under the plastic to cut it off.) Anyway, once I got the plastic off, I aired out the futon on our back porch for almost a week. I've heard that the 'new car' smell is actually new materials off-gassing, and it's toxic... I figured that the new futon smell was probably similar. After about a week the futon didn't stink like new materials, so we brought it in. We keep our futon in the living area, so it really does need to double as a couch and mattress for guests (i.e. it's not flat all the time). It's held its shape really nicely (it doesn't slide off the frame), and our guests have been happy with it. All in all, I'd recommend it.
As the other reviews confirm, this is an extremely comfortable mattress for both sitting and sleeping. My only complaint, which doesn't matter much b/c I'm buying a different cover, is that the "cedar" colored cover looks brown in the photo but is actually more of a military green. It's not attractive. Keep this in mind when ordering.
But... don't expect this to be the fluffy futon in the illustration. It's just a futon mattress. I can say that it's softer than the old mattress I had which was 100% cotton batting. And it doesn't weigh quite as much... but it's HEAVY. But if you own a futon you already know that. It basically looked the same as my old mattress but it feels better. I mostly use the futon as a couch but I did have to sleep on it and it was much more comfortable. It comes with a gray cover. I use a nicer cover over it but you could get away with the one that is on there - but once that's dirty you're in trouble. One comment on this and all futon mattresses, wouldn't it be great if they gave you some handles to move it around like a normal mattress?? It is difficult moving them because there is nowhere to grab (if it's a 1 person task). But all in all, the mattress is a bargain for the price and if you need a more comfortable mattress, you really can't go wrong.
I bought this mattress almost two months ago for my futon (used as a bed) and it's great. It's firm, but not hard- it definitely molds to your body, but offers plenty of support. It doesn't seem to compact-at least not yet- but I make sure to rotate and flip it as I sleep in the same position each night. I have it in a protective dustmite cover, so I don't care about the actual color of the cover, but I remember thinking it was a disgusting color that couldn't possibly go with anyone's decor (I got the Cedar color). Plan on buying a cover if you're using it as a couch. The smell others mentioned is definitely there; it reminds me a little of cedar although that's not quite it, but it's not bothersome. It's gotten less strong over time, and it never really bothered me at all. My only complaints are that, of course, it doesn't loft up to the promised 8 inches, and it's a little short for my frame- being tall, this is a little irritating since the frame is already a little short. All in all though, a good buy and one that I hope will last for years.
I was nervous at first to buy the futon, but after reading the reviews, I decided to buy it (Thanks). I am glad I did, The futon looks great and soft. It was easy to carry, because it air tight, but I was a little scare to open it because there's not enough room to cut . I also purchase Otis Grip Strips from another site, this doesn't let the futon move, now my futon don't slip out. I am happy with my sage color futon. Thanks Overstock.
Purchasing from Overstock was quite simple and the item shipped and arrived very quickly. They had excellent communication and the item appeared to be just as described. However....it was listed as 8 inches deep for the futon mattress. Be aware...this isn't quite that deep....it is closer to 6 inches. If I had known I would of gotten the 10 inch deep because this just isn't comfortable. You can feel the brackets that keep the mattress up on the frame. We had no problem with smells as others mentioned. In two days the compressed mattress had expanded, however just not to the full 8 inches.
I would purchase again....but I would not keep the item next time if it wasn't as described. Unfortunately this time I needed it and did not have the time to return and reorder.
I am even considering purchasing a second one for our guest room! Got this for our RV to go to Burning Man with and found it just great. It is dense and weighs a bit, but that comes with the quality that goes with it. I looked around and think I made a great decision.
I am very happy with the futon mattress. It came in a very timely manner - 3 days. We let it puff up for 24 hours and then put it on the futon. It did have a smell at first, but after a few days I just wiped it down with a damp cloth and it went away.
We had company recently and they felt it was very comfortable to sleep on. II would definitely recommend this to my friends.
Good price for a good value on a futon. Had no problem what-so-ever regaining loft once opened and flipped a couple of times withinn first 48 hours. Only slightly surprised at the dark color of the cover but planned to buy an additional cover for protection and decor anyway. Over-all we are very satisfied with this purchase! Very FAST delivery!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? actual color was darker than depicted
Please tell us about the quality of the product. mattress tends toward "med. firm" (as we like) - very comforable for our spare room use. Fabric and stitching seem strong.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
Unfortunately we are unable to determine compatibility without both products.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 31, 2012
I thought this was supposed to be for sitting as wellas sleeping...did I mis-read? I can't figure out how ro fit it on my futon frame to use as couch.susyl on Dec 14, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Worked great on my futon frame. With my sisters help I folded it in half and placed 1/2 of it on the seat and the other 1/2 covered the back of the frame. My frame has 2 things that stick up to keep it from sliding to the floor. One of the main reasons I purchased the 8inch Mattress. Very cushiony and my visitors are surprised on how comfortable it is.pinaca on Jun 27, 2013
