My husband and I live in a condo and needed a bed/couch for the spare bedroom. I didn't want a trundle bed because it would be twin size, so we settled on finding a nice "adult" futon. This futon fits the bill. It's sturdy, beautiful, comfortable to sit or sleep on, and comes in nice colors. I'd highly recommend this.
This mattress is beautiful. It looks wonderful on my oak colored, shaker style futon frame. The quality is very good. I thought it would be leather all the way around but the back is more of a suede feeling fabric. The fabric on the back makes it sit much better in the futon frame and it doesn't slip forward like my old one did. I love this! It's very beautiful and so comfortable. It's not as thick of a mattress as I thought it would be but it's so comfortable, that didn't matter.
On January 14th 2016 I ordered Brendan Mission Style Queen Size Inner Spring Futon Set Sleeper Bed from Overstock.com. I am currently a Junior in college and needed a futon that I could use as a bed for a semester. Pros I ordered this futon a week into the semester and was afraid it would take a long time to receive, but the futon frame was here in only 6 days. Since ordering the futon online, I assumed it would be a pain to connect all of the parts together. I was wrong, this part was as smooth as butter. Each step was told very specifically and the order was absolutely correct and the fastest possible way. The futon mattress came the following day and was impressed on how comfortable the mattress itself was. I ordered the 10-inch mattress pad and was a little skeptical on if it would feel like a hotel pull out bed or if it would be something I could handle for 5 months. I also wanted a futon that was long enough that my 6’3’’ body frame could fit on. After sleeping on this futon for the last month I believe it is long, wide, and the mattress pad itself is plenty comfortable when folded down. Another important feature to any futon is how well it can fold up and down. This futon being so large I thought it would be a struggle to fold back up. The first time I noticed that it is hard to fold up from the front. If you go to either side of the futon and grab the front and back piece, it is super easy to fold up. Very happy with this aspect since I do sleep on it everyday, and I like to fold it up every morning since my room isn’t very large. Cons I have a problem with the height of the back when folded up. Yes, this is a queen futon so the back of the futon needs to be high since when folded down it is wide enough to reach a queen size bed, just wish they could have made the part you sit on wider instead of the top. Overall this futon does exactly what I wanted it to do. The last thing I cared about was the color but I did chose a color I thought would look nice. I got the light brown oak finish frame and the moose colored futon mattress. While reading another review I noticed someone did this combo and they were happy with the outcome. As they were, I was very impressed with this color combo. Having a futon that has wooden sides makes the futon look more professional and not so cheap. Yes, its still a futon, so I recommend not using this to sleep for more than a year. If you wanted to use this futon for guest or for a few semesters in college I fully support the purchase.
The futon is made by Kodiak. It was delivered in a timely manner. Assembly was not too difficult; took about 2 hours. The first couple of pages of the instruction book are not too clear, but the color coded stickers on the pieces helped with assembly. The description of the futon indicates brown wood, and the photo of the futon shows brown wood. WRONG. The actual color is between natural and oak. The color listed on the box was Butternut. If you are trying to match wood color in your home by looking at the photo, DON'T. I was not matching wood tone, so I didn't send it back. The futon base is good and solid. The mattress is sturdy, but has a chemical smell to it. I assume this will dissipate. I have not slept on it, so I can't comment on sleep-ability. Overall I am satisfied with the futon, except for the color issue.
