The evolution of futon sofas

Futon SofasFutons gained popularity in the US in the 1970s. Derived from the original Japanese futon, the "shikibuton", Americans found the futon convenient and affordable. Today, futon sofas are popular among college students, apartment residents and first-time homeowners because they save space, are easy to move and convert from couch to mattress at any time.

The U.S. futon sofas are different from the traditional Japanese futons. The Japanese futon was a mat placed on tatami floors and folded and stored in a closet after use. On the other hand, western futons are convertible--used as a sofa to sit on during the day and a mattress to sleep on at night. They are built with a futon metal frame to support the mattress and allow the futon to convert. Moreover, this bedding system has become completely customizable with endless color, style and design options for futon mattress covers to suit the owner's personality or match a room's existing decor.
