The Futon Undergoes a Facelift
The last two decades have seen major changes in the futon’s design and style in the USA. You can find futon mattresses made with memory foam, latex, cotton, fur, polyester, cashmere, down, silk, and other materials. You can also buy futons in organic, hypoallergenic materials.
The futon has carved out a niche for itself as far as American furniture pieces go. It is no longer the humble dorm-room furniture item but is increasingly being seen in luxury apartments, hotels, spas, etc.
You can also get futons in comfortable and beautiful materials, finishes, and colors. They come in various styles, wood finishes, and hues to suit different décors.
Qualities of the Modern Futon
The humble futon is economical, versatile, multi-purposeful, functional, convenient, and space-saving. It can be used as a couch during the day or a bed to sleep upon at night.
Today, you can find futon frames in many different materials, although fir and pine are still the most popular choices. Metal frames are also common and well-liked.
You can easily assemble and disassemble a futon and its frame when you have to pack and move homes. They are great to add inside RVs and the backs of large vans. You can also put one in your office to take afternoon naps for enhanced productivity.
