They are designed to move and thus they come in a variety of different weights depending on what you are looking for. For those who plan on doing a lot of converting from bed to sofa, and then back again, a futon that is lighter weight is most likely your best bet. However, for those looking for an economical alternative to a bed, with the primary function of your futon being your bed, it’s perhaps a better option to go with a heavier and thus more supportive futon mattress.
