Futons

What are futons?
Example of futon   Example of futon

A futon is a thin mattress used for sleeping as a kind of bed coming from Japan. It has been produced in the same way for centuries and nowadays it is extremely successful in the world of "western civilization". It is made of completely natural materials, containing only refined cotton fibers or sheep fleece of the highest quality. Its coating is made of 100% cotton.

7 reasons why to own the futon
  1. COMFORT – Sleeping on futons lets your body enjoy a completely different feeling of comfort than any other kind of mattress. There are no metal springs to disturb your sleep. You can provide your body with nothing better than sleeping on the mattress made of high quality natural materials. In a few words – you sleep "wrapped in cotton wool".
  2. HEALTH POINT OF VIEW – The futon is not a result of any "HI TECH" design, nevertheless 99% of the Japanese sleep on the futons and they have least problems with their spin all over the industrialized world. The futon is a hard mattress with feeling of softness, suitable for people suffering from allergies, and friendly with environment as there are no chemical components. The fleece made of natural fiber warrants high hygiene because of its ability to absorb and reveal humidity quickly. Thus, it prepares soft and comfortable place for body to sleep, on contrary to any manmade fiber.
  3. PRICE – A futon sofa is cheaper than a standard upholstered sofa or any other mattress of a comparable quality. An upholstered sofa hides all gross imperfections – the futon does not. Everything must be clean and of a high quality there.
  4. VARIATIONS – At daytime – a living room with futon can be changed into a bedroom at night. It is easy to decorate with the futon – we offer you interesting types of lining made of coarse cotton. Are you asking about its up-keeping? There is not anything easier – just unzip, take the lining off, and wash it.
  5. CHOICE If you have no need to have the wooden convertible frame with your futon, it does not matter. The futon has been used for sleeping on the floor for centuries!
  6. MATTRESSES TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS – We can tailor a futon of any size on only one condition – right angles. However, our standard size is 90, 140, 150, 160, 180 × 200 cm.
  7. EASY HANDLING – The futon weights less than majority sofas so all the handling is much easier. Furthermore, it is flexible. You can roll or bend it. The wooden frame can be taken to pieces, so there is no problem to load up all the part into a passenger car! Try to do so with an average sofa.
