Futon Bunk Bed

The futon bunk bed we have come to know in America is loosed basely on futon designs originating in Japan.

Unlike a futon bed in America, in Japan, futons are a mere 2 thick and sold with a comforter or a blanket and a bean filled pillow. Designed for floor placement, futons in Japan are stored in a closet when not in use. This is clearly not the case with American your futon, which was actually designed with the innovative versatility of a sofa that folds down into a bed. Another difference between an American futons and Japanese futons are that the Japanese hit their futons regularly with a bamboo tool similar to an American carpet beater.
