An Organic Futon Is a Great Match for Almost any Room

The Multi-Purpose Futon

The beauty of the futon mattress, depending on the frame design, is that it serves as both a sofa and a bed, with a simple mechanism that makes it easy to modify the dual-purpose of the frame. By using it as a sofa, you can create more space in almost any room—even your office—and offer guests a comfortable place to sit, while providing extra space to move around the room more freely. A futon of this type is perfect for small rooms. A futon also provides the convenient option of rolling it up and storing it away in a closet or even a corner of a room, without taking up too much space. Moving the adaptable futon bed-frame and mattress to another room or to a new location altogether is also simple and easy, since the frame folds up snugly, and then you only have two items to carry, unlike a conventional bed that has a bulky box-spring to lug around, not to mention an unwieldy mattress that doesn’t roll up like a futon https://www.haikudesigns.com/futon-natural-mattress.htm.

Natural Composition

Fusing the traditional futon with a 3-inch latex core, organic wool and organic cotton, the advanced futon, as offered by Green companies, like Haiku Designs, provide the highest quality futon in the market today. The latex core has the uncanny ability to conform to anyone’s body shape and contours, with plenty of orthopedic support for the spine. The truly eco-friendly futon never incorporates synthetic foam cores, pesticide-treated cotton batting or polyester shells. However, most ordinary futon mattresses found in the standard marketplace today are made from cotton stuffing and synthetic, polyester foam cores.

Purchasing an Eco-Friendly Futon

The EcoRest Futon is a mattress that is all natural inside and out, made entirely of organic wool, organic cotton and natural latex. At Haiku Designs, they use latex that is a natural form of foam rubber produced from the sap of the Asian rubber treehttps://www.haikudesigns.com/. Unlike the artificial materials used in typical mattresses that usually come with box-springs, latex does not have the drawback of off-gassing that will turn your bedroom into a toxic environment with serious side-effects for many people. This uncommon company from Boulder, CO, only sells futons that have a core made of 100% latex, instead of a composite core that blend latex with polystyrene petrochemicals, which is also a common practice with the construction of so many adulterated latex mattresses. Although you may pay more for latex and futons made with these higher standards, it is best to think of the purchase as a long-term investment.
