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.

frame extends and lays flat to create a full size bed (Width 53" x Length 75").
