I was skeptical about getting a futon. However, my cat was constantly scratching the legs of my couch so I thought going with a futon would alleviate this problem. I was right plus now I have a place for guests to sleep. It is all wood, so it quietly and easily transitions from couch to bed. There are springs in the futon mattress so it is very comfortable. I have fallen asleep on it in both the couch and bed positions. Two things that I would change if I could. 1. I would make the futon cover removable. 2. I would make the futon so that it is reversible (flip it over or around depending on the wear/tear). Regardless, I love it and I am happy with my purchase!

Well, one month later, I have my futon assembled. First of all, it took a few hours to get it almost assembled and found that the end pieces weren't drilled so had to call customer service and they were excellent. They arranged for new end pieces which were easy to swap out. The futon seems sturdy but it came with a dink on one of the arms. Instructions (2 different sets) were different so I would recommend having someone from Kodiak look at them and correct! Just got it put together and it lies flat easily but is difficult to pull back up into the chair position. I love the futon now, but would recommend buying one already assembled.
I actually love this product. However, in putting it together I ran in to a snag where a screw wouldn't go into the hole it was supposed to because something was jammed in there that I couldn't get out. Fortunately, it was on a seat cross slat and wasn't extremely vital. I also did not get all the little filler pieces I was supposed to to cover the holes on the ends. But I love the style, the wood finish, and the mattress color; but especially that it is firm.
I had issues getting this futon and frame to me as it was sent to an old address in another part of the country. Hardware was missing from the main package (3 boxes). Throughout the whole annoying 3 week ordeal, Overstock gave great customer service and I ended up with everything I needed. Some pieces were scuffed or lightly scratched (thanks UPS), but as it was the platform portion no one would see anyway, I decided against a replacement. I put this together by myself and took my good ole time...a few hours or so (an extra pair of hands is needed in a few places, but can be done alone w/patience and determination). High quality, actual wood, looks great and nice to sleep, lounge and sit on (no soreness or crick in neck etc ). I ended up buying the Java VertiCoil as I like the leather look better. Both the peat brown and java mattresses look great on the Beli Mont frame (and The peat brown looks nice on my old black frame it is now set on). As I put on the my java mattress review, because the mattress comes vacuum sealed, I think it may take a while to actually get to 8". After a couple weeks, I have 6" at the lowest and just over 7" at the highest.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not as great as I thought as it's espresso in most places and not quite so in others (not enough stain or something)
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty much on point
