When you hear the word “futon,” your back probably starts to ache a bit. I’ve spent the night on some rough futons in my day. My brother used to have one that felt like sleeping on a giant sack of potatoes. So when we downsized our home and looked for sleeping options for guests we wanted to find a futon that was comfortable and functional. My home office is now equipped with a futon from The Futon Shop. The Futon Shop is a California based franchise that has a wide range of futons. We decided to go with the futon pictured to the right and I must say that it is comfortable and highly functional.
Having slept on it a few times already, I can recommend it for comfort and ease of use. It is very sturdy and fits both myself and my wife. It is a bit snug if you are used to sleeping in a queen or king sized bed. The best feature of this futon is the hideaway storage that can hold all of the bedding that you use for the futon. It is very conveinent. When preparing the futon for a guest, set up is very easy. I have fought with some very stubborn futons, but this one can be folded out with one hand and all the bedding is right under the mattress. If you are in the market for a futon, but are weary of past futon experiences, you may want to consider this well built and functional option.
