Buying a futon is an involved process that should have a lot of consideration attached to it. Many people use futons as guest beds for when they have people over, and of course, everyone wants their guests to be comfortable. Consequently, some thought is required when buying a futon. Always be sure to consider the type of frame the mattress will sit on and the mattress's thickness. Wood frames tend to be very hard, so if you get a wood-framed futon, ensure that the mattress is of adequate thickness for comfortable sleep.
Always get futon mattresses with innerspring coils that will provide support during sleep, just like a real bed would. Also, buy some covers to go with the futon. What type of covers you get is entirely up to you, but we recommend a synthetic fiber cover if intending to use the futon as a sofa extensively. This is because acrylic and polyester are incredibly durable. Also, be sure to get different colored sheets in bulk to rotate seasonally and change the appearance of the futon. Whatever you choose, a futon is an excellent and versatile piece of furniture you can get a lot of use from!
I wanna buy futon, take back home2006/5/15 22:30 I love Japanese futon bedding, rather than the heavy type they sell in my country, but I am not aware of "real" futon sold here (Australia).I will be making two trips to Japan this year. Is it possible to buy and bring home the upper part on one trip, the lower part on the other Anyone know what they each weigh, approximatelyOr good places to purchcase in either Tokyo or Kansaiby Irene
futon2006/5/17 14:02 the complete futon set would fill something the size of one of the old fashioned steamer trunks, atleast as far as length and width go. Height could be reduced by buying one of those that you can put the futon in and vacuum the air out of it until its only about 30cm high.A complete futon set can be bought at any of the numerous department stores in Japan.You should also read abou thow to care for a futon if you dont already know as they need to be aired out outside regularly, and a futon dryer may also be necessary if you live in a humid area. read this wikipedia article dearate this post as useful

Futons!2007/9/2 13:21 I am currently in tokyo, looking for another futon myself. But! Six years ago, I bought a futon in Tokyo, and used one of those air compressors to shrink it. I put it in a box, and checked it in my luggage; very convenient and no extra charges. This time however, I think I will try to just send it to my parents house in Philadelphia.by Sarahrate this post as useful
futon2007/9/2 14:19 l saw futons in Japan at the Loft store (there is one in Umeda Kita not far from the Hankyu Grand hotel. it is a great store, selling all sort of stuff for the home, office etc. the futons were already packed and it didn't look like a big box (you might still need an extra suitcase or duffle bag for it, so mailing it may be worthwhile. remember that "a futon" is actually a set of what we call a futon (bottom part) plus a top quilt. that part is bulkier and bigger. remember also that, unless you have a tatami floor, if you sleep on the floor you will need a thin base ( a couple of inches high) made of wood slats (some western beds -like mine-come with slats instead of a boxspring so I have no problems w/ my western style futon). . slats allow the futon (bottom part) to breathe and let the perspiration from your body escape in the air. otherwise it may mildew (according to my Japanese friends). Ikea has special bases w/ slats for single futons. Do you have Ikea in Australia has an internet catalogue and also a paper catalogue available in Japanese bookstores. lots of great stuff.by Plantagenestarate this post as useful
