Mainstays Metal Arm Futon Sits & Sleeps Splendidly
It's always a good idea to have plenty of sleeping space for family and guest. I do not have a large home but I do have two extra bedrooms. My issue is both bedrooms are small. That would be fine for 4 extra people but what if there were 6 or 8 extra people? I'd have a real dilemma on my hands. That's why when the opportunity afforded itself, I selected the Mainstays-" Metal Arm Futon, Black Frame with 6" H Mattress" for my review. This futon is a versatile, fashionable piece of furniture.
This futon has a modern motif and it's entire frame is made of strong, solid metal. When assembling the futon, the metal support can be seen from top to bottom and side to side. The futon is compact. In fact,it is small enough to fit in just about any room in the house. What makes it unique is the fact that it serves in 2 different capacities. First as a couch, then as a full size bed. This frame with its design and metal work, should provide the necessary strength for its use either way. There is a weight limit of 600 pounds though.
The Mainstays Metal Arm Futon comes with 4 separate cushions. The cushions are to be placed in a black coverlet that zips up for closure. The cushions serve as back and leg support when being used as a couch. To convert to a bed, the back panel is simply lowered down. There are two center legs for additional support and stability.The couch now becomes a flat, full size bed. You can even put a set of flat sheets on the coverlet for extra comfort. The couch can also be spruced up with colorful pillows and maybe a soft throw. A table could be placed in front to hold various items that might come in handy (depending on what you are doing).
The Mainstays-"Metal Arm Futon, Black Frame with 6" H Mattress" is a uniquely designed couch and full size bed. It is also affordable and not expensive. I look forward to using mine for relaxation, guests, kids sleeping over, and so forth. If you have a need for extra seating or sleeping, I suggest you check this Mainstays Product at Walmart.ZoeMoo
Mainstay Metal Arm Futon.
This was shipped to my home and it came in a huge box . We let the grandkids play in it while we were studying the instructions on how to assemble. Nothing goes to waste in this house. The futon is actually really nice looking and I really love the thick foam mattress I'm almost afraid my husband will like this better then our bed . I had him put it together and he said it was really simple but time consuming as there is a lot to do . He said now that he's put one together he could do another faster. I was really excited about getting this to do a review on because we had just cleaned out our den area put up curtains and threw down a rug and the futon looks nice. You can get different color mattress covers in Black, gray. red or grey. when you get yours be sure to leave plenty of room to assemble and read the directions . they made it easier by including the screws wrenches in a card board container with plastic cover, Everything you need to assemble your futon except for the rubber mallet you will need to tap a few things in. I was afraid I would be to heavy for this but the weight limit is 600 pounds I know great made isn't it . Sturdy functional sleek and nice addition to any room or dorm . Lays out into a full size bed and the polyester cover is sectioned off for each piece of the mattress which means it can easily come off and be machine washed then replaced back one . The hole futon is 77" long by 35" wide and 34" high .And had a years warranty …laurijean
First off I love the color. You can add any color decor to this. Of course this is heavy and big. The mattress futon has good stitching and durable fabric. Seems like it would withstand for a while. Once you get it out of the boxes and laid out, it is more easy going from there. Personally I like to have everything all lined up with plenty of space for assembly. The directions were easy enough, everything was in the kit that needed to be. Took a while but once together it was very comfortable to sit or lay on. Very nice futon for any room!widowmother
Firm enough to support yet soft enough to sleep on
As I write this review, I'm sitting on my new futon and I have to admit that it's more comfortable than I had hoped it would be. But to be honest, I don't think this will be for everyone, especially if you're not comfortable using tools. I am a 62-year-old female and it took all I had to get this put together. I did have to ask my daughter for help at one point because the instructions just were not very clear. With her help, we were able to complete steps 7 and 8, then I finished putting it together the next morning. Oh, did I forget to tell you that there are 120 pieces in this box? This includes the 4 mattress pads, the cover, screws, bolts, two - 4mm hex keys, a small wrench and of course, the futon pieces. They were safely packed in a double box, with some pieces nestled safely in a third box. The screws and bolts were very well packed on a piece of cardboard and sealed with clear plastic instead of just being thrown in bags. They were also labeled well too. The black, polyester cover is very soft, has a zipper at the two short ends and four separate compartments for the four foam pieces. This keeps them from shifting around and the two mattress retainers you install will keep the mattress from sliding off the front of the futon. The four pieces of foam each measure 38" x 24" and are covered with a rather loose envelope of a papery-fabric. As I said, this futon is a lot more comfortable than I had hoped it would be. The foam is firm enough to provide plenty of support and yet soft enough that it's easy to fall asleep on. I'm about 5' 2" and found the bed to be more than big enough to really stretch out on. There are two sitting positions where one is more laid back than the other, and that laid back position is inviting enough for a nice little nap. I also like that this futon has armrests on both ends. This is a really, really nice futon to get for your home or dorm room without shelling out a lot of money.CaseyMom
Comfy and Durable Futon
I'm really really I have the chance to try out and review. The Mainstays Metal Arm Futon, Black Metal Frame with 6 Black Mattress. After I received the futon Kit. I unboxed and laid it out on my living floor and spread out all the parts in the kit. I'd say taking my time to assemble the kit. Took me around four to five hours to completely put the kit together. The kit had everything I needed except a phillips screwdriver. The manual that comes with the kit to assemble it was complete. Although I did have to just stair at the instruction for a bit to complete the assembly. Other than that everything went well putting the futon together. After the assembling was done. The kit seems sturdy and made from quality parts and looks very attractive in my house. This futon is very comfortable to sit on and it stays in place well and didn't move while its in use. To use the bed part of the futon is very easy to use. All I have to do is grab the back of the futons back rest and pull towards me to release the locking mechanism. Then push the back of the seat backboard and the mattress easily slides out to become a bed. I spent a night and slept on the bed to see how comfortable a nights sleep would be and see how I would feel when I woke up. The nights sleep was ok. This futon seems like it would be good for a temporary solution when I would need extra bedding for family or someone spending a night or two. All in all I'm very happy with the futon. I'm going to rate this product with five stars for being made with quality materials and being very sturdy after being put together and yes I would recommend this product to a friend.MoonFirez
Jessies new buddy
Very comfortable to sit on from my 110 lb daughter to her 280 lb boyfriend, and it slept well too. All hardware was included to assemble except a mallet. Well made steel frame. Mattress is very well made and comfy. Much more comfortable than a previous one we had purchased a few years ago. Cannot feel the support bars like with older one. LOVE that. It took 2 of us about 90 minutes to completely assemble. Very happy with the look and construction. Great for dorm rooms, guest rooms, playrooms, basement and game rooms. Good price for the quality.bschank85
GREAT Futon once you get ti assembled!
I received my Mainstays Metal Arm Futon, Black Metal Frame with 4 Black Mattress pads. It was a big box. But everything was in there and packed well. Most items were marked, but not everything. It was a little difficult to put to together as the instructions seemed a little vague to me. But maybe that was just me. One person can assemble and that is what I did. It took a couple of hours to complete. The bed/sofa is really nice and big. The cushions are soft and comfy. The sofa will sit straight, recline some, and then lay flat down for sleeping. It makes into a nice sized bed. The sofa is sturdy and has several braces that you install along the way to make it strong. The pads are hard as heck to get into the zippered cover, but once you get them in there, you can easily manipulate them to get them right. The mattress comes with retainer clips to prevent the top from sliding which is really handy! This sofa is nice for guests (you can fold up when not needed) or would be great in an office, dorm room or sunroom.
The covers are available in black, gray, or blue. Overall a a really nice futon and would look great in any décor. Much cheaper than a big bulky couch!
The futon dimensions are 77"L x 35"W x 34"H.
The sleeping dimensions are a full 73"L x 52.5"W x 15"H. The weight limit is about 600 lbs.vcwalters
Ok for a futon
I received this Mainstays Metal Arm Futon with
6 in mattress in black from the Walmart Spark
Reviewer Program. It arrived in excellent
condition except an end was bent but easily
fixed with pliers. It took About 3 hours to put
together with one person. It would be easier
with 2 people at 2 steps. Be careful to have the
wired part of the back and bottom facing
toward the cushion. We put it on upside down
the first time. After the frame was completely
Put together it worked perfect. I was
surprised to find that there were 3 positions of
the back. Flat, as in a bed, reclined, and up in a
Upright position. Now this is a futon, not a
couch, so it is low to the floor and a bit narrow
in the seat but really comfortable. The mattress
arrived in 4 pieces of 6 inch foam and a cover.
It was a tight fit to put the foam in the cover
And zip it up, but doable. A good fit. I think the
Whole unit is very comfortable to sit on and
comfortable but a little firm when used as a
bed. When it lays down, no metal can be felt by
Any member of my family. 150lbs, 190lbs, and
300lbs. This is a big improvement over my old
futon. The only area that I didn't like was that
it Indented in the center where it bends for the
couch position. Not a deal breaker. It would be
great for an occasional overnight guest, but I
would get a memory foam topper if I was to
use it every day for sleeping.eelnep
Good metal futon with 6" mattress
This Mainstays Metal Arm Futon, Black Metal Frame with 6 Black Mattress is good! I really like it a lot. It was a pain to put it together. Did take about an hour and a half. After getting it together and all set up where we wanted it to go, I noticed after sitting on it only for a few days the mattress cushions are already starting to sink in. That's the only bad thing I can really say about it. It's still fairly comfortable, I have laid it down in the bed position and it sleeps better than just sitting on the futon. I may consider purchasing another in the future. They are nice and save some room in my house. I did receive this item for free to try for being a spark reviewer.DanielleM33
The instructions were hard to follow. The metal is easily bent. Some
Of the pieces were dented in and made it hard to put together.
I was able to bend pieces back out and make them work though.
The mattress is nice. It's basically 4 pillows that all go into one case with
