The futon bed IKEA in the original idea is a traditional Japanese bed style. In principle, it is designed so that it can be multipurpose or be stored during the day allowing other uses for the room. The western design has adopted and modified this piece to our tastes and requirements. They are different from the Japanese ones.
Essentially it is a mattress, in which the type of filling can vary, which is placed on a tatami base or on a frame. And can be used as a bed or as a sofa. As a bed, the futon is the ideal nightstand for the column. Due to its characteristics, it has an excellent point of contact with the body, very difficult to overcome by another mattress that currently exists. And as a sofa It allows us to quickly transform a room into a guest room or a chill-out. Find among its positions the most suitable for the moment we are enjoying.
Although in principle it may seem simple, it really is not. The western futon seeks not only to be a piece of furniture but a star piece in a room. Whether it be a living room or a bedroom. The companies that manufacture and market them, pride themselves on doing it with first quality materials and in a way, in many cases handmade. They are usually manufactured by order and also you can choose between several options. Both of them are the filling and the fabric for the structure makes it a rather exclusive piece.
