We recently put together the Provo Mission-style Frame and Mattress Futon Set. We ordered the medium oak colored arms. We are extremely pleased with our purchase. The instructions are sometimes a little difficult to identify parts so you have to use your logic as well. There are extra parts so don't expect to use all washers, nuts, etc. Everything was accounted for so we had no problem there (parts were all in a plastic bag and extra parts came with the arms which we only used the wood buttons to cover the screw holes). It took us approximately 1 1/2 hours to put the frame and arms together. The frame is nice and solid black metal. The mattress is soft, thick and plush. The arms fit securely onto the frame and are nice solid wood. The futon mattress is so comfortable. We bought this futon to replace an older wood futon we had which had broken. This futon is so much more comfortable. We ordered a full size which just fit against the wall in our den replacing the older queen size. So, this futon set is a large full size. We are very pleased and extremely happy with our purchase. The mattress and frame are shipped in two separate packages but arrived together within a week from ordering and were shipped FedEx. You can't beat the low shipping price as well as. All around, a great deal!

Free shipping was great. Price was pretty good. The directions were hard to interpret because I think they were written for a wood frame. The end arms were different stains. The inside arms had groves made for another frame so the groves show from the back. I kept it only because of the hassle of returning. Would not recommend this product.

The futon was easy to assemble. I had my 10 yr old daughter help. Everything went together with little need to disassemble and reassemble even though the directions left a lot to be desired. The futon is comfortable but you will want to get some gripper pads to put between the frame and mattress. If not you will constantly be repositioning your mattress. If I could change two things I would have make the legs out of sturdier 3x3 lumber and the mattress would have a colored cover rather than a colored upholstered mattress.

Instructions were easy to follow. I am a 64 year old woman and it took me an hour and a half to assemble. The quality is what I was hoping for. It is very sturdy and attractive.

This is a pretty good futon for the money spent. It is almost impossible, it seems, to find a true Queen sized futon. Most futons are fulls or doubles. Putting two adults on a double to sleep is pretty silly, not to mention uncomfortable. This futon serves as couch/bed in our basement for sleepovers for our daughter and extra guest space. I was drawn to the relatively good reviews and the fact that not only was the size right, but it also supports 750 lbs of weight. The futon came well-packed in two packages--one containing the mattress and the other big box containing two boxes of materials for building the frame. I didn't find the instructions too complex or confusing as some reviewers did but I did need my husband's help when attaching the arms to the metal frame. I will admit that some of the diagram pictures were a little blurry and small though. The frame is all metal, except for the wood arm pieces. On putting together the T-bar that serves as the base for the bed frame, I had to bend the metal at the edges with pliers to make the long pieces fit into the T connector. That tells me that no one is really doing much quality control on the manufacturing end. The other problem we had was in putting the two frames together. The metal tubes are supposed to open flat to fit together but one piece got caught on the other and the metal flange on one of the lips of the tube actually bent. We were able to straighten it out and fit the tubes together. We didn't see how this would cause a problem with the sturdiness of the futon however since it gains its strength from the tubes fitting together as a whole not just from the edge of the tubes. The other nice thing is that the frame is attached to the arms by large hinges instead of some cheap "roller" assembly fitted loosely into the arms as in many futons. Aside from these small troubles, assembly took a little over 1 hour. The nice thing about this futon is that when in its "couch" mode, the back is very high but you don't feel like you are sitting with your bottom too low or in some kind of uncomfortable sitting position. We had a different futon for some years and while it, too, was very sturdy, whenever I sat on it, it felt to me that I was bent into a V-shape with my bottom sitting way below my knees and my feet barely touching the ground (I'm 5' 5"). This futon feels more like an actual couch when you sit on it and my feet touch the ground! I can also fully stretch out on it in couch mode and it is quite comfortable! It is certainly long enough for a tall man to stretch out on as well. The material used for the mattress cover is quite nice looking as well. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase. While I haven't slept on it, my husband and I did lay on it and it is not creaky, didn't sag, and feels like a firm mattress. I thought it was pretty comfortable. Together we weigh about 350 lbs. I think most people would be happy with the end result if they purchase this futon.

Just bout this a few weeks ago. We got the dark one, black. It arrived after a few days ( FedEx was a nightmare with the free shipping however I do not blame overstock for that). It was easy to put together however there was one hole that was not drilled correctly to if you don't own a power drill and this happens you are out of luck! Luckily we do :) It was all set up within an hour and our 8 inch mattress fits perfectly. It stays in place also! I've had a futon before that when opened into a bed and you sat on one side it would tilt over!! Not this one. It's strong and can safely have to adults sit on one side. It's easy to open and close and looks great! I have it in my spare room and I find myself sitting in there more frequently now that we have a pretty day bed (futon). I definitely recommend it!

This is the best futon I have ever bought! The wood construction is very high quality. I got the 8" mattress which is very comfortable. The futon is as pictured. I love the tray tables on each side. When you put the futon together, follow the instructions and you won't have a problem. The delivery service was excellent. Product was received on the date that was indicated when I ordered. The only problem with delivery is that they only deliver to your steps so if you can't lift anything heavy, you will need help on the delivery date with getting product into your house.

I was unable to use this product and had to return in because in my oversight, I thought that the futon frame was included in the purchase.

I'm not a big futon fan but needed something to act as a couch and a place to sleep when guests are over. This was a pain to put together, was a pain to fold up to a couch, the futon mattress never really was great as a couch, and kept sliding off the frame. As a bed, it was fine. As a couch, I did not like it at all, and it was a pain to transition. I'm still not a futon fan.

Difficult to assemble and directions were not the best. There were two different sets of instructions!

I shopped around, locally and on the internet and still think this Futon and Frame is the best choice available. It is compfortable for sitting as well as sleeping. I've already had a guest sleep on it and they liked it very much. The frame is beautiful. I really like the fold down trays on the sides. Everything is great with this sofa and the price was a good deal.

I was very disapointed int he quality of the wood, it was chipped and rough on the arm rests. The instructions were terrible, it looked like a grade school child drew them. Very frustrating.

So comfortable! But, the mattress looks much nicer with a cover on it, I purchased the ivory color, and you can see the filling through the fabric. There is a bit of a smell when you first unwrap it from the plastic, but it goes away quickly. Full size sheets fit on this perfectly. This is the most comfortable futon mattress I have ever slept on. It's like a real mattress, and it's also super comfy while used as a couch. The one downside is that the right side of my mattress is missing filling compared to the other side, so when it couch form, that part sags and it feels like you're just sitting on the frame.

this futon mattress fits a space where we had three old cushions--so much better

I was initially concerned about a bad rating--after buying this futon and setting it up, I felt that it needed a boost. The overall futon looks great and is surprisingly comfortable as a couch or a bed. Folding it into a bed is a cinch, folding it into a couch requires an extra hand or foot as IT IS A FUTON. It came in two heavy boxes and one light box which were very hard to lug up 4 flights of stairs, but again, this is no fault of the manufacturers. The cons: 1. My box had a hole in the top and some slats were hanging right out. I thought this was because some slats are longer, but no, stuff had started to slip out. 2. Two metal elbows were bent in a slightly obtuse angle. I used the chat function at Overstock.com and minutes later had a request for new parts put in. To make a long story short, I screwed in the pieces anyway and it worked fine, but I had great customer service and spare parts mailed to me just in case. So those aren't really cons. Despite the poor packaging and need for extra inspection of parts, I have a great looking futon with a beautiful finish and the most comfortable futon mattress in my experience. You might have some trouble putting it together if that's not your thing, but for some context, it was much easier to put together than Ikea furniture and without those cheap plastic, one-shot brackets. The slats were COLOR CODED AND NUMBERED. With a little pre-reading and setup, you can't go wrong. But do take the instructions seriously when they suggest that two people place the futon bed in the frame--I had to do it myself and, again, can't fault the manufacturers for what happened. But the futon is great, if I had more rooms I'd buy two.

This futon is great. After reading others reviews I was apprehensive to buy this product, but I am glad I went with it. It looks great in our guest room and is quite comfortable. Unlike other reviewers, it wasn't hard to put together. My husband and I put it together in about 2 hours. The product was delivered in 2 boxes on the same day. We opened the mattress and let it air out for a day. When we were ready to put the frame together I laid out all of the parts and DIDN'T open any of the bags with screws. The product comes with a lot of extra screws and you want to be sure you don't mix them up. Read through the directions before you start. The bags with the screws are labeled with letters and some of the letters repeat so be sure you read what screws go together to know which bag to open. Again, you will be left with extra screws. I definitely recommend this futon. It looks nice, is comfortable, and was easy to purchase and was delivered quickly.

We purchased one mattress for our futon for our country get-away. We were using air mattresses when our kids and their spouses came. That was fine but such a pain to get out every night, clear the floor space, and put away every morning. Plus the kids tend to lay in bed all morning making it difficult to walk around our small place! We got a used futon frame and blindly ordered this mattress based on reviews. The kids love it! They say it is like sleeping in a regular bed. We recently invited friends down for the weekend. They said they slept better than in their own bed! Since then we got rid of the second couch and now have two futons, both with this mattress. We are VERY happy with this mattress! As a couch the mattress is fine. Comfortable. We bought a cover for each mattress so I can take them off to wash them. The covers say they are for a full size mattress, but they are huge!
