Does this take a queen or full size mattress? Queen in the title, but then it says full frame....
Took a very long time to put together (I didn't time it, but it was hours, not minutes). Not all holes matched up very well, and we had to try different hardware in different holes to see which would tighten the best where. Once together, though, it is a really nice frame, easy to change from bed to sofa and back, lots of storage....

Purchased the Queen size - received in several days and was able to put it together easily, it looks great in our office. The queen size is large and I need help making it into a bed or back to a couch, but I think that is due to having a 10 inch mattress that is very heavy, not the frame. Very happy with the purchase.Read More
It will take you a couple of hours to put this one together, but it's worth it. My package contained many bolts and nuts that were not on the product parts list. A bit confusing, but better that they sent way too much than not enough!Read More
Great value for the money. Works perfectly in my bonus room. Mattress really comfy!Read More
I put off putting it together because I thought I'd need help, but my 11 year old was the only help this 45 yr old woman needed... my teen daughter prefers a futon, and this is her 3rd one - she keeps breaking them. Seems to be pretty solid and she is happy with the comfort and the extra space in the side panels. I'll post if she breaks it soon :)Read More
The quick shipping was amazing! Ordered the futon and had it in two days! So excited, but that excitement turned to disappointment when we opened the carton and saw how parts had been tossed about during shipping. The actual wooden arms were thrown in loosely to bang about during shipping. With the hinges attached on the bottom, you can imagine the scarring that incurred to the sides and top of the arm. Not to mention we ordered "mahogany" color so the light wood shows through in several places. Contacted customer service right away about the problem and they responded right away, but that's as far as it went. It is a sturdy unit and seemed okay putting together (says my husband), but we're not liking the scarred look, so buyer beware!Read More
What an excellent product, craftsmanship is great. Very easy to assemble took us about 2 hours start to finish. Very sturdy and well built, love the "secret storage" arms excellent for remotes. Directions were a little sketchy but all in all a very nice piece that is used on a daily basis. Order & shipping process were wonderful and fast, Thanks for a great product.Read More
I was looking for a nice piece of furniture for the guest room. I needed a bed for the occasional guest but I also want to use this room for an office. This is perfect! The arms are a nice walnut. They are very sturdy, the bottom of them are magazine racks and the tops have hidden storage for remotes etc. My only complaint is putting it together. I (female) put it together myself but it took me 7 HOURS!!!! Some of the instructions are poor and the holes didn't all match up. But now that it is done...it is beautiful!!! It is just what I was looking for and at half the cost of one here in town that is almost identical. Plus, it was shipped by FEDEX in 2 boxes plus I purchased the seperate mattress and a comforter (2 more boxes) delivered by Ups and it all shipped for $2.95! What a Deal!!!! So my advice is to buy this and get some help putting it together or plan to spend a whole day doing it yourself!!!! It does go together and in the end it is all worth it.Read More
great quality product but poor instructions - not clear and sometimes contradictory. Also, instruction to attach spring to frame poor. Took two of us four hours to assemble. Still, product is great quality (one exception is that screws to left storage compartment too small and need to be constrantly re-tightened. i'll probably replace with larger wood screws.Read More
Pretty typical of put-it-together-yourself furniture, with some problem areas. Watch the assembly videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/EpicFurnishings, as they are very helpful. The original instructions I received had a significant misprint in them, which was corrected on a second sheet that was packaged on the outside of the box, so watch for that. Epic Furnishings needs to go back and finish the last instruction video, as it cuts off before assembly is complete. Problems: 1) As noted in other reviews, putting in the C-shaped hook that links the back to the seat might be a problem. Watch the manufacturers assembly videos on YouTube to see the best way to do it. If it wont go in, try putting each end of the hook into each metal loop in the back and the seat, to see if one end of the hook is the problem. The hook I received is a little bent on the end with the hole in it, and wont go into either loop. Ive emailed Epic Furnishings asking for a new one and have not heard back from them, despite their claim of 24-hour response time. I think the hook is pretty important to the whole assembly, as it will keep the back and seat from separating in the middle. I may have to fabricate something to take its place if the manufacturer doesnt send me a replacement. 2) The other difficult assembly point is putting on the mattress retainers. The ones I received needed to have the ends bent in toward each other a bit, and that was VERY hard to do. Also, they did not go through the frame far enough to expose enough of the thread ends to hold the washer, lock-washer, and nut (I couldnt get the nut started on the threads). I fixed this by first putting on just the nuts and tightening them until the mattress retainer was pulled down farther into the frame, then taking the nuts off and putting all the hardware on. Be careful doing this, as it seems like you could pull the mattress retainers in too far and damage the frame. After all that, Im now concerned that the mattress retainers will wear holes in my sheets and the mattress cover when the futon is used for a bed, so I might take the retainers off entirely. 3) The flip-top armrest lids need to be put on with tiny screws, which come with the hardware, but there are no instructions anywhere about using the screws or putting the lids on, and this assembly step takes a bit more care than the others, as there are no pilot holes to guide you! 4) The grid that supports the mattress appears to have a weak spot where the edges are folded for shipment, and the grids may separate over time at that point. This is especially important if you are using the futon as a mattress and a couch. The first time I tried to move things into a couch configuration with the mattress on the frame, the hinge point separated a bit and Im afraid it will soon break there. Overall, Im pleased with the looks of the frame. Hope it doesnt fall apart.Read More
