Old futons never give up!
Here at the Futon Shop we love to see these little gems when we are out and about delivering.........
The futon base pictured here is a Boston, manufactured in rubberwood, that we sold to our customer back in 1997 / 98, almost 20 years ago!
Back in those days the quality of rubberwood frames was exceptional (sadly not so today!) with each component part being a solid cut of timber, not a fingerjoint in sight! It's a testament to the quality of materials, construction and the care our customer has taken of this futon that, after all this time, it is still alive and kicking in their living room, all we were doing was replacing the futon mattress.
I guess this is a good example of why it pays to spend a little more to move onwards and upwards from the cheap 'catalogue' type futons and go for something from a specialist store....like us of course!!
Hopefully we'll be back in 2037 delivering a new mattress to these lovely people.......
