The CLASSIC futon, a classical design but with some added features.Based on the enduring "A frame" principle our CLASSIC futon is simple to operate.
Fold-out the back to form a bed. Fold it back up to give a sofa. Since with this style of futon you need to move it away from the wall to turn it into a bed, we've added discrete wheels so it's easy to move. The front legs can be folded up or down for a high or low seat, to make this easier they're connected by the front plinth, simply rotate it for whatever seat height suits you, or fold them away for a completely flat bed. Then there's a comfortable recliner position: Just lift the end and the recliner swings down, automatically stopping in just the right place to make a lounger, ideal for the late night film.
Fully-assembled, apart from three bolts which fix the two halves together, the CLASSIC takes minutes to set up.Complete with our Original futon in a large range of fabrics, you can also colour your base to suit your room.
Hand made in our workshop, the CLASSIC futon follows our environmental policy of minimising environmental impact and so is made with timber from European, certified managed forests.
This model comes as standard with our Original futon mattress which gives good performance as a sofa or bed.
For additional resilience and loft you can upgrade your mattress to the PolyLux mattress which includes an additional layer of 450g/m2 SuperBond Polyester.
