What type of futon sofa bed should I buy?

It’s a tricky question because of differing needs but the starting point should be to figure how much space you have to devote to your new sofa bed. When space is at a premium 2 seat frames without arms do the job, if there’s plenty of space then 3 seater sofa beds are generally the better option because you can put thicker futon mattresses on them and usually they convert more easily. If it’s just for occasional use we have futon mattresses that roll up and can be stowed away. Whatever your requirements it’s worth getting in touch to discuss your needs.
Frequently Asked Questions Filling

What are futon mattress ‘layers’?

Back in the day futon mattress manufacture tended to use layers of reclaimed cotton and wool.  These fillings often tended to arrive in a haphazard way. Part of the initial process was to lay out in layers about an 1″/2 cm thick. As a result new developments make using layers of natural fibres a lot more easy and exact. Now we use specifically manufactured and pre-sized sheets of various materials. These include lambs wool, wool felt, cotton, rebound polyester, high density foam, coir and latex. This gives an end product that looks neat, feels comfortable and will have a long life all at a reasonable cost.
