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!

Long story short, they blew it in manufacturing quality. Holes were drilled and tapped for the machine screws, THEN the hard enamel finish was baked on, This filled the female threads, many of which were not properly finished, with so much material the machine bolts could not be safely started.
To get the machine bolts in without stripping threads, I to spend about $xxx on two different metric tap and die sets.
Nice design, good materials. Poor manufacturing quality control. and process planning.
The only reason I'll consider another one is I've already spent the extra $xxx so that I can assemble these now.
My teens put this together, they are sticklers for directions and it did take them a while. While the matreress does slide off a bit the back is high enough that it is still comfortable. HOWEVER.. sleeping on it. The front end side of the bed extends out much further than the back, look at the photos and they only show the bed open at an angle. My son was dumped on the floor when he moved closer to the edge while sleeping! Poor design. We will need to rig it somehow to make it more stable.
This was purchased for our basement as a hang out for the kids and sleepovers. I was going to purchase a second if this one was acceptable. It is not!

It seems that the wooden arms and the actual frame of this futon were not designed to work together. It's as if there is a factory making universal frames and a factory making universal arms.
That said, this stuff works fine together. The funniest part is the hardware included. It seems like there are muppets or something at the factory just grabbing random handfuls of nuts and bolts, tossing them in a bag, then shipping them. I had so many nuts and bolts left over that I could've built another futon. The instructions were written by monkeys for use by dinosaurs. Good luck assembling it.

Excellent futon for the price. Make sure you get a "set" and not just a mattress. The mattress cover is good quality and the navy is beautiful. The frame is sturdy and of good quality. The mattress is also thicker than most inexpensive futons. According to my son, his futon is the envy of his dorm floor. He was able to put it together on his own although he did say he was glad he had some building experience. It looks well made and should last for a few college years. He also go it in record time--two days. Good job Overstock!
pretty easy for me an older woman to put together, futon has the strong natural cotton smell but it isn't chemical smell so it was fine with my sensitive friend who stayed on it. frame is a little shaky but this is for my spare room then cabin so it will be great. just don't move it around all the time. Just what was shown and what we expected to receive and are happy with it.
If you are expecting this to be the most comfortable futon ever, you might be disappointed. But for the price, you cannot beat it. My husband and I were both very satisfied with the quality given how inexpensive the futon was (and free shipping!). If you expect more than what you get, then you are being unrealistic. I don't know how they are making any money on this product as it is. The sides are solid wood and the futon is of sturdy construction. We were missing some of the nuts and bolts from the assembly kit, but an email to the manufacturer solved that. This will be nice for guests to crash on in the future.
My futon arrived in 2 business days due to my proximity from the shipping location. It arrived in two packages, and came with both an allen wrench and a hex wrench tool, so if you're tool-light like me, everything is provided.
The box with the wooden pieces contained extra parts, and after assembling the product I had a LOT left over, but it went together in about an hour and the only difficult part was where you have to use the hex wrench and allen wrench at the same time. Doable, but easier if you have your own hex wrench.
The mattress is fairly firm yet pliable, and my cat has decided she loves it. I love it too, and after assembly it feels more solidly put together than a futon we bought at a local furniture store several years ago, which was pre-assembled.
If you're looking for a couch/bed combo or a mattress set for a proper bed is just a little too much, I recommend this product heartily.
We were moving and had sold our couch as it was too heavy to move. The futon was waiting for us at our new house- very fast delivery! Color and style is nice. Took a while to put together - not super-well made but it's light weight and the mattress is good . Would recommend this to an apartment dweller or someone needing a good couch/ bed for not much $$
