Futon Bed frames at Futons247
Friday, 3 July 2015
Here at the Futon Shop we've found over the years that many of our customers are looking for simplicity in a bed frame that will fit neatly and compactly on your floor and can be easily moved from room to room or from one home to another without being a DIY genius!
Of course strength in a frame is equally important and this leads me to comment on our blog. I've been 'nosing' around over the last week or so at some of the futon bed frames on offer in 'internet land' and they seem to range from the extravagant oriental styles through to items that look like you'll be lucky to still be using them after 6 months. Anyway, we've come across a tidy little frame called The Roots, a simple traditional 'A' frame futon that can be used as a sofa frame but, in my opinion, is best utilised as a simple lay flat bed frame.
The Roots is manufactured in redwood pine that is FSC Certified, i.e. from managed, sustainable sources in Europe, the slats are neat and strong, the finish is smooth and, although it arrives flat-packed, assembly is very straightforward, all the holes in the right places and neatly fitting together. The Roots also features a supporting central under-rail ensuring that the slats are not flexing in use.
Anyway, the Roots is just one of our range of futon bed frames but certainly worth a look if you're looking for a bed frame at a low cost. Visit our website for full details.

I guess if you've found this blog entry then the subject of safe, comfortable sleeping is important to you? Well, here at Futons247 we have been watching the popularity of our CottonSafe natural, chemical free, bed mattresses growing each month.
Our CottonSafe futon bed mattresses pass the UK fire regulations by making use of naturally fire retardant materials, a fabric weave of organic cotton with wool quilted onto a natural lambswool layer meaning no need for any of the standard bedding industry chemical back coating treatment.

Our much loved, much traveled comfy Monk Futon bed rolls have gone and got themselves into the spring of Spring! We can now offer an upgrade on this ever popular product to incorporate a 'mini' spring cage in the middle of the existing layers of lambswool and woolfelt providing a softer sleeping surface.
Traditionally our Monk Futon is used for various sleeping arrangements such as guests and relatives staying over, camper vans and even everyday sleeping for those customers seeking an authentic Oriental style bed roll, for full details link to our website below:

Here at Futons247 we've been working with futons and sofa beds since 1995 and over the years one of the most common questions we get asked is "Can I use as Sofa Bed for everyday sitting and sleeping?".
Naturally the answer is "Yes" but, like everything, there are good and bad in the world of sofabeds. The first thing to take into consideration is that you are trying to buy one product to perform two functions so it is fair to say that, on the whole, you will not achieve perfection in either the sit or the sleep and that you should realise that a compromise must be reached.
Of course there are degrees of compromise and thankfully we have the excellent range of Innovation Living Sofa Beds designed in Denmark available for delivery here in the UK. Throughout Europe, the US and, increasingly, Asia, Innovations range of contemporary, high quality, sofa beds are a well established choice for apartment dwellers seeking a sofa that can easily convert into a double sized bed comfy enough to be slept on everyday.
Innovations products offer this by careful and clever design in the open / closing mechanisms and by the extensive use of pocket / serpantine springing in their sitting and sleeping platforms to ensure comfort and durability. There are a wide range of styles, sizes and fabrics available and for full information please follow the link below to our website:

One of the most common requests we get is for 'flat-packed' futons and sofa beds for customers who are wishing to place extra seating or sleeping arrangements in an attic or loft room. I guess as use of space in houses is becoming increasingly important with many more people working from home, for example, using the space in the roof is a sensible and practical option.
Fortunately most of the futons and sofa beds we offer are delivered in a flat-pack form so are simple to fit into attic rooms even if you have a narrow or 'half-width' type staircase, spiral stairs or a narrow entrance, of course we would always recommend taking the various futon base components upstairs one at a time to make the lifting straightforward.
The two pictures here show two of our models located neatly into customers loft rooms. For full details on our futons and futon mattress choice visit our website by following the link below:
