Buying Guide

Are you on the lookout for the best futon chairs? If so, then you’re in the right place as we have a detailed futon chair buying guide below that’s sure to kick-start your search.

Futon chairs come in various sizes, but the standard is 28 inches x 54 inches (l x w)

Your most common futon chair frame options are metal and wood. The frames that are made of metal are almost always cheaper, so they make for excellent options for apartments and door rooms wherein the futon chairs are needed for a short period of time. As they’re cheaply made, they are not your most attractive options and they end up in storage areas over time.

If you’ve decided that you’re on the lookout for more attractive futon chairs that can last for years, we suggest the units with a sturdy wooden frame. All-wood frames aren’t just durable but they are also stunning especially when carefully stained. The design and finish of the frame will be the major factors that you’ll consider when making a decision.

Most futon chairs are filled with 100% cotton to create firm, yet flexible surfaces for lounging and sleeping. A thicker futon will give additional support. However, it can be a bit difficult to transition or move into other positions.

Alternate materials include polyester, inner springs, wool, and memory foam. If your futon will be used and stored sporadically, you should consider opting for a much thinner foam that’s light, less bulky to carry, and easier to fold.

The filling you choose will play a major role in the overall aesthetics of futon chairs. Think of how you want yours to look like after it’s been used for a long time. A coil-filled unit will be your most comfortable option but it tends to lose its shape over time. Of course, this has an impact as to how the futon chair looks. As for a foam-filled futon chair, it will hold its shape better which is why it is the best option for a living space that is frequently used by family members.

The most versatile aspect of a futon chair is its cover as it can be changed to reflect a different color or style in an instant. If you will be changing the look of your futon chair regularly, then opt for the chair that comes with a hook-and-eye or zipper/s for closures. Both of them make the cover replacement process incredibly easy.

You may want your futon chair’s cover to last. If so, then your most durable choice is an upholstery cover made of leather. More affordable options include tapestry, micro-suede, linen, and cotton. If possible, choose the futon chair cover that's stain resistant and machine-washable as it will be easy to maintain.

Now that you know how to pick the best futon chair based on your needs and preferences, go ahead and do some shopping!
