Futon Mattress Information & Specifications

American futons, originally borrowed from the Japanese, began to appear in bohemian crash pads in the late 1960s. Students of Asian culture made the mats by hand for friends because they were cheap and saved space. In the '70s and '80s, Boston designer and creative wood craftsman William Brouwer began to experiment with the futon and developed the first convertible futon frame.

Futons, have since grown up. No longer just floppy quilts, futons have grown thicker and more comfortable, and are now functional piece of furniture for both sitting and sleeping.

You can add an optional futon mattress to any futon frame you order.  Each futon frame extends and lays flat to create a full size bed (Width 53" x Length 75"). Choose from the following mattress types:
