Rustic futons are made from pine, hickory, aspen, white cedar or reclaimed hardwoods that feature weathered and natural look. Made is sizes of twin, full or queen they fit in to most cabin spaces.
As you shop for a futon keep in mind that 80% of a futon is the mattress. The mattress is where you sit and sleep. Many less expensive futons are made with thin Spartan padding that looks good in the showroom but shrink with a few months use. Woodland creeks futons are made with over stuffed mattresses that stand up to years of service.
