Is a Futon Made Out of?
The Frame, Mattress, and Removable Fabric Cover
Futonworld, futons come in three distinctive components: The Futon
Frame, the Futon Mattress, and a removable Fabric Cover.
The Futon Frame is
usually made of solid wood such as, pine or oak, but some less expensive
frames are made of steel. The frame provides support for the mattress as
well as the mechanism that allows the change from bed to sofa and back.
The frame is usually the most expensive part of the Futon purchase.

Futon Mattress has an all cotton covering and is filled with cotton and
other materials. Early
Futon mattresses only contained cotton and tended to flatten out and
harden as they aged. Today's
Futons have one or more layers of solid foam to give them more
resilience or "bounce-back”.
There are even innerspring Futons similar to a conventional inner
spring mattress, except are foldable. The newest innovation in Futons is
an ultra soft mattress filled with dense polyester batting.
The Futon Cover has
three basic functions: To protect your mattress, to provide a
personalization to furniture, and for easy removal and cleaning. You
will be amazed at the variety of patterns available to decorate your
Futon. The removable covers
can be changed to make your Futon match any decor without the cost of
buying a whole new piece of furniture.

Imported hard wood frames, usually coming from South America or Asia may
be more economical yet are of comparable quality and durability.
all of the information you can from your sales person. Pine and metal
frames are more economical than hard wood frames but generally have
lower quality and lack the elegant look of fine wood. Beware of discount
stores that sell cheap "oak" frames which are really only
partly oak or contain laminated wood. Visit a reputable Futon Dealer
(they usually display a "Futon Association International"
sign) where oak means solid oak and if any other wood is present, it
will be clearly labeled.
