Most peoples spare or guest room tends to be a bit on the 'tight squeeze' side and nowhere is space more important than a loft conversion. After all once your lovely new loft is ready to occupy you don't really want it getting cluttered with bulky furniture.
Anyway, we recently delivered and installed a Pangkor Futon to a local customer and couldn't resist sharing this 'snap' showing how it has fitted into a restricted roof space without overpowering the room.
Our customer selected the Pangkor as it arrives flat-pack so can get up the stairs no problem and it opens and closes from the front so an ideal choice when space is limited.

At last there is an option to the seemingly pointless UK furnishing regulations that demand that we all sleep on fabric that is back-coated with chemicals just on the 'off chance' that we should fall asleep whilst smoking! A bit of a throwback to the seventies I would say!
Anyway...now there is an alternative in the new Clear Choice pocket sprung bed mattress that has been developed by Cambridge Futons down here in Devon which combines a special mix of pocket springing, wool, pure lambswool and an alternative polyester fabric covering to ensure that UK fire regulations are met without the need for chemical back coating thus giving you a 'Clear Choice' of what you are breathing in as you sleep.

We've been selling these great little mattress protectors for years now and, having used one at home, must say they are an excellent addition to use with your futon mattress.
The Morpheus Mattress Protector is manufactured with pure cotton fabrics and filled with a quilted cotton fiber inner, i.e. everything is cotton! The benefit of this is that you can wash the mattress protector at a high temperature thus killing off all the nasty bugs that like to make their home where you sleep which is useful if you have any issue with bed bugs or house dust mites. We also like the mattress protector because it gives you a natural sleeping surface free of man made additives, all in all a good choice to help with healthy sleeping. The Morpheus is available in a choice of sizes from our website, follow the link below:
