On every futon there are three major pieces, the frame, the mattress, and the cover. The A,B, and C’s. These are the most important pieces to any futon on the market.

When shopping for a futon you should be looking for a frame that is made from solid hardwoods, no particle board or MDF, features mortis and tennon joinery, and has metal on metal connections. When care in craftsmanship is put into your frame, you will get more out of it. Make sure that your frame has a warranty, if the manufacturer stands behind their product it shows they have confidence in their product.
Also important when shopping for a futon frame is the style of frame. Do you know the difference between bifold, trifold, and loveseat futon frames? Click here if you’d like a little more information on the different styles of futon frames.
