Goodnight Moon Futon in the U.S.


We have recently been in communication with a family run Futon business in the U.S. who you may wish to check out.


Don't make your futon homeless......


Yes indeed......in these credit crunch times don't make your futon homeless like our poor friend in the picture. Many of our Blog members offer replacement futon mattresses and new futon mattress covers which will give a new look to your trusty old futon sofabed.

Most futon frames will outlast the mattress and give many, many years of service, so before heading off to the local tip, check out the cost of a new futon mattress or cover. Follow the link below:

Futons & The Credit Crunch.

These comments were added to one of my postings by Howard at www.futons-direct.co.uk, a pal of ours here at the Futon Shop. I thought the comments were worthy of thier own posting so here goes.......
I'm also a futon retailer and have been shocked at the fall of the value of the pound. I have decided despite the temptation, that it isn't worth cutting the quality of the products we sell. I would hope that the buying public thinks likewise and resist buying the junk that is beginning to appear on the internet. One way to look at it, is that if you buy a decent product you will still have it long after the credit crunch is over,but if you buy an unsuitable, thin futon it might need replacing as soon as a month after purchase.
