This futon's style is simple, clean lines and blends with other furniture styles. The arms are nice as they are flat to hold a beverage but not super wide to take up a lot of space. The flip up side tables are great. We purchased the mattress in cardinal red and it looks fantastic in our cabin. As a couch it's a comfortable place to sit by the fire and it also provides extra sleeping space for guests as needed. The mattress is a Mattress is 8" thick with foam with 294 Innerspring coil. A nice step up from a regular futon so friends can get a nice sleep.
I just wanted to say that I was very impressed with the Futon that I purchased. It's not only beautiful but it was super easy to put together. All the parts came with color dots and numbers so there was no guess work as to where each piece went. The directions that came with the product were very clear which made assembly a breeze. The quality of this product I rated excellent, each piece is made out of solid wood and all the holes and bolts were aligned properly so most of the assembly I was able to do with my fingers, only using the Allen wrench to tighten up the bolts. Once done assembling the futon I added the mattress with I ordered in black and it came in black, it was very comfortable, not to soft and just the right amount of firmness. Over all I am very happy with the product and would recommend it to all my friends. Oh yeah did I mention it was BEAUTIFUL!
The only drawback to this product are the frame instructions as they are not really clear. Once my husband and I figured out what went with what the process was completed quickly. The frame is heavy/sturdy and the mattress fits perfectly. My husband really likes that the sides pull up to create mini tables. Futon is very comfortable sitting and sleeping, even the dogs find it comfy. I would definitely recommend this product.
If you are looking for a futon with an all wood frame - including the back and seating we would recommend this one. We didn't want a futon with metal insert as they tend to bend and get out of the shape - and therefore don't provide much support or start sagging. This purchase was to replace a futon that had been used for over 12 years. In the 12 years we only replaced the mattress. I hope we have the same experience with this purchase. Only drawback is the color of the wood - its really not a Honey Oak but more of a pecan color, but we decided we'd make it work.
The futon surpassed my expectations. Assembly was not difficult, but you do need two people for the final step. I am very pleased with the color, comfort and style. I especially like the collapsible arm tables. They are perfect for drinks, phone, small lamp etc., so that it becomes a very efficient piece of furniture for small spaces.
We like almost everything about this futon. Ordering was easy and it arrived in 3 boxes sooner than expected. According to my husband and my son it was relatively easy to put together. We have slept on it a few times and it is comfy (for a full size mattress sleeping 2 people). The fold out shelves under the arm rests are also nice. My only issue with it is that there is no locking mechanism to keep it in the upright sitting position. Because the mattress is thick and not floppy (a good thing) it is a bit difficult to get the futon to fully move into the sitting position. On 2 occasions I have walked away from it only to hear a "thunk" and find that it had opened up again. I find that it helps to lift the long end of the mattress (front end from sitting) and sort of jam it back into the futon.
This is a really good quality futon. The frame is solid wood and the mattress and cover is good quality. The only problem with the mattress is that you cannot really take the cover off. Although the cover is zip-able, if you tried to remove it you’ll end up with a pile of fluff, the stuffing is not contained in another inner cover. While I like the cover, I did end up purchasing another cover to go over the top that is removable and washable. Still, the quality of the furniture is well worth it. It is easy to assemble, not too heavy to move around, and folds up/down effortlessly. It is very comfortable to sleep on too.
This futon was just what my son wanted - something solid that didn't take up too much room. The cushion is soft and firm; the frame is much more solid than I though it would be; and it was relatively easy to set up - took two of us a couple hours. The flip up side tables are a very nice feature too. The one negative I would say is that there is no locking mechanism to keep the futon in the upright position - it's sort of reliant on the sitting person's weight and if you shift too much, the futon could slide back toward the flat position. But overall, I'm happy with this purchase.
I am very happy with this futon. I have been looking for over a year and once I saw this I new it was the one. The side tables are a great addition, but they do add to the width of the futon, so more space is needed. The mattress is very comfortable. Pulling the mattress out flat is easy, but putting the mattress back up into the upright position is difficult. Can't detect where there is a flaw in the assembly, but don't intend to put it up and down so frequently that it should be a big problem.
We are very pleased with the quality and look of the wood on this futon frame. Its a warm honey color. Unfortunately, we ordered the red option (the most expensive) and it is an dull, dated maroon color. Not red at all like in the picture. Overstock needs to get it together with color representation- perhaps hire someone to name colors better? For the price, a better quality option should be provided for the futon cover. For the quality of the frame, the cover is cheap looking.
our bed came on time with no damage to the package. The wood frame is very high quality with a beautiful finish. the bed had to be entirely put together and other than a few minor glitches, such as not sending 4 of the main screws, which are impossible to find, the bed when together fairly easily. The mattress is good quality, nice material and it is cotton batting with innersprings. I was not expected batting because overall I think after awhile you will feel the innersprings because the batting will settle. My son loves it though because he likes a firmer mattress. Other than it being lower to the ground than I had anticipated, it is a very nice, high quality futon.
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.
