A Futon Mattress is traditionally derived from Japanese bedding which consists of a padded mattress pliable enough to be folded and then stored away during the day. This allows the room to serve additional purposes other than as a bedroom. Futon mattresses today are still based on the Japanese original but with several differences. Futon mattresses are almost always placed on a wooden or metal frame for dual use as a bed, chair or sofa. Typically, the frame and therefore the mattress folds in the middle which allows the futon mattress to be used as a sofa in the day and can then flatten for use as a bed. This common idea of a futon is that it is a sofa that can double as a guest bed.
Futon Mattresses can be filled with economical foam crumbs, cotton, polyester and a wide variety of soft fillings to ensure that the mattress is pliable enough to be folded including the high quality fillings of felt and wool. The material that the futon mattress is made from can affect the softness and durability of the mattress so this should be something to take into account when buying a futon mattress. Due to the additional layers, futon mattresses tend to be thicker than standard Japanese futons and resemble a more traditional mattress in side. Futon Mattresses also normally feature a removable and/or replaceable cover which is usually available in a variety of colours to help you match this to your current décor in your room. At Mattress Moose we feature many futon mattresses to ensure that no matter your requirements, there will always be an option to suit you.
