Futon Frames For Sale
If you are looking at buying or replacing a futon frame, you will find a good deal of choice available online. Futon frames are great space savers especially if you opt for the flexible ones that will fold down into a bed.
You can choose to buy a metal frame or a wooden futon frame, depending on the style of the room that you will be using it in.
Futons actually originated in Japan and it is the mattress that this name is derived from. This consisted of thick quilted cottons that were versatile enough to be comfortable to sleep on at night and them pliable enough to be folded away during the day when not in use. This enabled a room to be used for other activities.
The use of futon frames became very popular in western societies where people did not really like the idea of sleeping on the ground. The majority of these frames are made to fold out so that the mattress is a few inches off the floor.
