Both of my kids wanted futons so they would have more room in their bedrooms and something to sit on while playing their video games. With one of my kids being 6ft tall and a freshman in high school we knew any old futon wouldnt do. So after numerous searches and research we found this one. It says it is queen size so we figured it would be perfect. Though I like the arm rests at the the ends because they lift up for storage like remote controls, they still get in the way when sleeping. Then after only having this bed one week the backside of it and the hinges broke therefore it can no longer go into the couch position. It must stay laying down and the backside slopes and touches the floor. We are currently waiting for replacement parts but havent seen a thing. Also the instructions for this bed are completely ridiculous and alot of the hardware is junk. I really hoipe if some one else purchases this product they have better luck than I did. The only good thing so far that came out of this was that the shipping was only two dollars and the product arrived in less than a week.

Very good value, Mattress is very comfortable . Directions are a little confusing because of the multiple hardware included for various frames and arm rest configurations but overall it was straight forward to assemble. Looks good and is functional.
this is a nice bed, not a good mattress. It was easy to set up, (the screws were definitely junky, the heads strip easy).with two people. We have two other futons in our cabin, both full size, and my feet or head hits the side rails. this is not the case with the queen. the mattress is the downfall of this bed. we got the premier, and it does not sleep well. our other mattress is much nicer.this bed converts very easy, is very sturdy,looks great and the side arms will store items.
A Grandson came in while his Mom and I were assembling the frame and although it was hard, we let him take over. Hahahahaha!! The directions were clear cut, all the hardware needed to complete the project were there. There was some extra hardware that we figured out was probably for if the arms were to be used fixing the chair that was also available for buying. Anyhow, it did become a family project. Two people are necessary, at least in the beginning. It looks beautiful when all set up. I did buy a foam rubber mattress piece to go over the mattress when it is used as a guest bed, the mattress was just too firm for most sleepers. With the foam layer the guests using it said it was a very comfortable sleep. If I needed another set up for guests sleeping over I would reorder this set without out a second thought. I am very pleased with it.
Having done some research before buying this one, I think for the price maybe you can't get anything better in a queen size futon. We've had the futon for almost a month now. The overall look is pretty nice but it doesn't feel very sturdy and the mattress is not that comfortable. One of the reviews said it was too soft. I thought that was a selling point but it's also very thin...um, so thin and soft that you feel the futon frame when you sit on it. But it's not that bad, not unbearable. It's just not so comfy. If I were to do it all over again, I'd probably buy the frame separate if I could and then get a better quality mattress. I'll just sum everything up this way: Pros: - Nice and big for sleeping on (though I haven't actually slept on it yet) - Wood sides are a great touch: very cool storage, good quality, and aesthetically nice looking. - Relatively inexpensive for being queen size - Good customer service (one of the pieces arrived broken and they immediately sent another) Cons: - Mattress is not that good: thin, soft, etc. Try inner coil...those are nicer. - Doesn't feel sturdy (kinda wobbles when moved). I suspect it's the metal frame on wood sides combination, rather than metal on metal. - Sits kind of low for me (I'm 6'2") - The angle of the seat back is too straight in sitting position (they should change the hinges to provide more angle). - Looks kinda awkward in sitting position because of high back of the queen size (but you kinda trade that off for the big bed advantage). - Horrible assembly instructions (though once you put together you realize it wasn't that complicated...but still, c'mon, the figures were kinda ridiculous, almost more confusing than helpful). - The hook/joint piece that connects the frame pieces (seat back to the seat bottom) couldn't connect because one of the holes is obstructed by a metal protrusion from within the hole. In other words, I will have to grate the hole to fit the connecting piece. Didn't do it yet and it's okay for now. But I will have to go back once I get the gumption and the right tool to do that.

The instructions are terrible. They included hardware for several options and products so when you are done there are extra parts which is always un-nerving. The instructions were not good at all. Luckily I never read them. The couch it BIGGER than the pictures would infer. It is comfortable with a high back rest and is more comfortable than other futon that i have slept on.

Now friends can come and visit me in my little house in NY. A seldom-used enclosed porch is now a sitting room/bed room and at a great price. Easy to assemble. Futon is well constructed and sturdy. Mattress is thick and very comfortable for two. I love it!

This was my first time making a purchase of furniture online. I ordered this product for my lower level spare bedroom/sitting room. This is a great piece of furniture! it looks good and sleeps well, too. My 18 year old assembled it and loves it. The mattress is plush, thick and comfortable. I am very pleased with this purchase and will continue to purchase other products from Overstock.com.

well let me tell you that all the reviews were right...i read the reviews on the full size futon... first of all the good...the mattress is vary comfortable...i like the mahogany look..it looks vary good... the bad...the instructions sucked the pictures were poor...and through the whole thing it was asking for f bolts...there are only four f bolts and they screw on to the spring. the whole futon uses the allen bolts..i think its the f,r,s bolts and thats it...maybe if you had the metal arms you might use the rest of the bolts and nuts that come with it...the hard thing was sifting through the bolts trying to figure out what bolts go were...once i figured that only the allen bolts were going to be used it went together in minutes...good luck trying to find out were the o-connecters go...i remembered it in a review and a picture of online of a metal piece holding the futon mattress...the picture in the instructions shows the springs and doesn't show were the o-connecters go...luckly i read the reviews and started to look on the top of the front bottom frame...the o-connecters hold the mattress from falling or sliping down...not to many parts to the futton...i laugh at how mad i got when i was puting it together...i would buy another one and it would go up in 10 minutes....the futon is vary comfortable like i already said...and its a good price because my other futon was an ll bean futon and it was $$...
