We purchased the futon and specifically searched for a queen size so that my parents have a “bedroom” to sleep in when they come to visit us for weeks at a time. My husband put the bed together and said he was slowed down a couple of times, but after re-reading the directions and manipulating some of the screws and holes, he was able to completely put the futon together. It looks great!! No scratches. It’s sturdy. The color we got is hunter green and it matches the color on the site perfectly. It’s very heavy, the mattress is thick. The ONLY minor negative I have to say is that the mattress, when folded in a couch position, sometimes slides off or forward when you’re sitting on it. They do have “lips” to hold it in place, but they don’t do the job of keeping the futon in place when sitting on it as a couch. The intent was for a bed, so it works perfectly for us. We’re deriving something to attach to the bed to help keep the mattress up when in the bent or sitting position. Otherwise, the quality and size are wonderful for the price. We compared to other futons and stores, and this was by far the best deal for the quality versus price. We’re very happy!
