Traditional Futon: Traditional in appearance, Original in design.
Made and designed at Sit and Sleep, the ingenious TRADITIONAL Futon looks like a standard futon but folds-out and up to give a sleeping height similar to an ordinary bed.
Just pull on the rear and the frame does it all for you, revealing hidden legs which raise it up as it folds out in one quick simple operation.
Together with our Original futon mattress, the Traditional Futon sofa bed provides a bed suitable for people of all ages, you can even have a fully upholstered headboard to keep the pillows where they belong. The headboard changes into comfortable arms by day for that real sofa feel.
The TRADITIONAL futon is delivered as two fully-assembled sections requiring just a few minutes final set-up to be ready for use.
Choose from a fabulous range of fabrics, filling upgrades, base colours and other options to make our TRADITIONAL your TRADITIONAL.
