Futon Sofa Bed, Futon sofa beds originated from the Japanese futons which were made of pliable mattresses that can be folded and stored in a closet when not in use leaving useful space instead of a bed. Western and Japanese futons differ in several areas. While a Japanese futon bed is designed to be placed on a “tatami” floor that needs to be aired in the morning, Western futons turn from bed to sofa to be used as a seat after sleeping.
Western futon sofa beds, as illustrated in the pictures below, are made with wood or metal configurable bed frames so the beds can be folded in the middle to become a seating sofa. Western futon sofa bedshave padding that is usually thicker and lager than the padding of Japanese futon beds. Modern decorating tastes can be matched in the removable futon bed covers. The fillings of Western and Japanese futon beds differ too from economical pieces of foam to eco-friendly futon sofa bed fillings.
Whether it is a Western futon sofa bed or a traditional Japanese futon bed, it is important to take good care of the futon. The freshness of the futon can be established by constant airing of the futon bed mattress in the sun, especially if the bed is kept away in a closet during the night. Many Japanese beat their futons regularly using a “futon tataki”, a special instrument, traditionally made from bamboo, resembling a Western carpet beater.
