About Us

History and Experience

Futon Design was founded in 1992.  In our time we have made futons for many of the UK's leading home furnishing stores and mail order catalogues.  
Our experience is second-to-none.



Value and Design

Today we specialise in the direct supply of futons.  Since we make and design most of what we sell we can combine really good value with really effective designs.



The Environment and Build Quality

All of our pine futon frames are made from scandiavian timber bought from certified, sustainable sources.  All hardwood futon bases are also only made from timber grown in managed forests providing a sustainable supply.

Our pine bases are designed not only to look good but to perform well, and to last!

Individually hand-prepared components are assembled in sophisticated assembly jigs to ensure absolute accuracy so every base part will fit everytime.

Our futon mattresses are individually hand-filled and then buttoned or tasselled also by hand.  In this way we can ensure every cover is perfectly filled, every futon is sumptuous and luxurious.

Each piece of fabric used is individually cut to allow careful inspection of every panel before sewing to ensure no fabric flaws find their way into the finished futon.



Bespoke Services 

Because we produce our own futons and bases we can also make your designs...  If you need a 7'6" long futon or bases adapted for holiday lets or whatever your requirements are, contact us by phone or email and we'll try our best to make exactly what you want.



Showroom Display

We have an extensive showroom at our workshop where you can come and try the products on view.  If you're interested in a particular range please contact us ahead so, if possible, we can ensure that it is on display.
