I was a little apprehensive about ordering a futon without checking it out first; however, I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this for someone looking for a futon. It came quickly in two separate boxes. My husband was able to put it all together with minimal difficulty. It seems durable and I am pleased with the quality of the frame and mattress. My daughter and her husband slept on it and reported that they were quite comfortable. I am pleased with my purchase.... The box with the futon frame is very heavy. My husband was out of town when it arrived, so I had to bring it inside by myself. It was a struggle. I could 've-- should've opened it on the porch, as it is well packed in smaller boxes inside the large one. I could have brought it in by carrying the smaller and lighter boxes and saved my back. Now I know where the expression "think outside the box" probably came from.
