Futon Sofa Beds For Sale
Futon sofa beds are a great purchase if you are looking for something that is contemporary and is also space saving.
The word futon is actually Japanese and refers to the traditional style of bedding that consists of padded quilts and mattresses that are placed on the floor of the room for people to sleep on. The particular benefit of this type of bedding is the fact that it is easy enough to fold away during the daytime so that the room can be used for other things.
This was a necessary requirement because people used to live in large and open shared spaces that had to double up as multi functional rooms.
This idea has been adapted and now these types of mattresses can be purchased to fit onto a wooden frame. The frame is shaped to look like a seat so you can now buy futon sofa beds that function as a sofa during the day and then open out into a comfortable bed for the night.
