Putting the Fun back in the Futon.

Having just returned from the IMM furniture show in Germany I'm pleased to see that the Europeans have not lost the 'fun' in futons. This lovely compact chair / bed the 'Buckle Up' converts quickly and easily from a comfy chair to a futon bed perfect for guests.

Sadly we can't get these in the UK yet as the fire regulations prevent furniture coming in from Europe.....I know, daft isn't it!!

Low Level Oriental Style Beds - with or without a futon mattress - from Futons247

Here at Futons247 we've seen an increase in sales of our low level bed sets, we think these type of beds have increased in popularity as peoples home environments have changed over the last decade or so. Many of our customers now seem to live in apartments, some open plan, some with limited roof height and some with restricted access to the upper floors or mezzanines, all of these environments make a low level bed a great choice.

The low height of this type of bed frame gives an overall impression of less use of space, particularly beneficial when you have a low ceiling height or sloped roof. The fact that these bed frames come in a 'self assembly' form makes them easy to get into tight spaces, up tricky staircases and into lofts and attics without too many headaches. Of course, we suspect the main reason customers are buying these type of beds is Beds in our range such as the Dock, Japan and Osaka offer clean lines, minimal fuss and quality of timber and construction making them a thoughtful choice for an Oriental or minimal style room. We can also offer some of our bed frames with traditional Tatami Mats for the authentic Japanese look.

Anyway, feel free to visit our website at to view our range and discover more low level beds like the examples below.
