This is a lovely, quality futon. The mattress is extremely comfortable, and the frame fits beautifully with my other antique white, beachy furniture. Would I recommend it to a friend? NO. It took my son and me 3 days to assemble the frame. The directions were not adequate, and much was left to us to figure out. It's finally together; but can be used only in the open position. Upon erecting it upright as a sofa, it automatically collapses down into a bed. I'm so discouraged because the picture is so pretty. Had I known that the assembly would be so difficult, and unproductive, I would not have ordered it.
This was a purchase for my grandson when he comes to visit. My grandson is the size of a full grown-up man. Futon looks great, sits well as a sofa, and very comfortable when used for a bed. I will say its a little difficult to lower and return to sofa position, mattress is heavy and needs to be removed to raise and lower.
Excellent end product. Only two of the three sets of instructions were included. The- assemble the main body portion was missing. I'm fairly handy so this was a minor inconvenience. What was more annoying was the mislabeling of parts. There are orange dots on my unit where there should have been blue ones. It took a couple of hours to assemble. The other reviewer of this futon has reversed the direction of the green dot cross bars. The plastic stops (black) will keep the seat in an upright position if assembled correctly. Now for the quality, it seems to be well built and quite comfortable for a unit in this price range. Overstock.com delivered in a timely manor and the *** for being a new customer was much appreciated. Great job.
