The frame itself is very good quality. I love the wood side rails and the metal frame gives great support. The microfiber futon cover is a lovely blue and I'm very pleased with it. My main concern was the quality of the mattress. I didn't want a foam mattress as some of them you tend to sink down into and have trouble getting up. The coil type is what I was looking for and even what arrived look rather "cheap" but it does a decent job. It actually is pretty comfortable to lay down on. I am using this for my video game room and sitting on for a couple hours can start to feel a little uncomfortable. I suspect I will have to replace the mattress in a year or two with a nicer one from Ikea or something but this will do for now.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very similar likeness. We purchased the blue cover.

Overall, the futon was ok. The mattress, material, and size are nice. However, there were a few problems with the item. It was very difficult to put together. It took us several hours to figure it out and we were left with a few pieces (screws, bolts) that we did not use. The flap along the bottom of the futon that is supposed to cover the metal to make it look like a real couch is terrible! It has a cheap adhesive that does not adhere to the metal. I was never able to get it to stay on. I had to toss it out and not use it. Also, one of the wooden arms was damaged in the box and had small scratches on it. It looks like I bought a used futon. I probably should have bought a used frame and put a new mattress on it. That would have been a cheaper and less frustrating option.
