Japan was the country of the origin of queen size futon bed mattress. And then the American companies brought out their own versions of futon beds which were quite different from the original Japanese design, but nevertheless, the American consumers lapped up the American futons. You will be surprised to know that the American futons have edged out the Japanese futons from the popularity charts in Japan!
In western styled futons, the mattress rests on a wooden or metal bed frame. But the Japanese version is a bit different. It is upon a Tatami mat that the Japanese queen site futon mattress will rest. The Japanese people love to fold and store away their futons in the morning and all through the day to bring it out again at night.
In countries like US and Canada and other western countries, people love to use the futon both as a couch and as a bed and thus in these countries, the futon is a very versatile piece of essential furniture.
What makes the futons all the more popular is the fact that they are sold in a wide variety of sizes and there is one futon to suit every need.
