Full Futon Frame
What’s So Great about This Futon Frame Compared to Others?
This frame is called a KD Futon Frame. KD stands for “knock down”, and that means it can be broken down into the smallest parts possible. It is a kit-style futon frame, so you do the assembly, which typically takes about 45 minutes. This is handy, maybe even essential, for a few reasons. When it ships, it ships in two compact boxes, so getting it inside your space (or even transporting from one location to another) is much easier than if the frame were mostly assembled. “Mostly assembled” items usually require physical help to carry or a larger vehicle to transport, which is not always easy to come by.
The majority of kit-style futon frames are only offered in metal varieties and are typically imported; We love solid wood, so we always favor it over a lightweight imported futon frame (for your health and the longevity of the futon frame). If you don’t mind the assembly, and you prefer the lower cost, this is the frame for you. It is just as substantial as our other full size sofa bed frames, but the compact nature of this full futon appeals to many.
NOTE ABOUT ASSEMBLY: the side arms ship fully assembled, so don’t feel you have to put every stitch of wood in place. The body portion of the futon frame is what requires the majority of the assembly, and with this frame, you’ll be constructing the two main parts (which are the back deck and the seat deck). Once you have those together it’s just a matter of positioning/connecting them together, installing the horizontal bracing, and fitting the seat and back decks into the side arms. It is not as intimidating as it can seem…but if you absolutely hate assembly altogether, check out our super-deck futon frame where the back deck and the seat deck come pre-assembled for a minor up-charge.
This sofa bed futon frame is ONLY available in Full Size.
This Full Size Futon can be ordered Unfinished (with nothing at all applied to it), OR it can be ordered with a Water Based Stain in Golden Oak Color. Of course, we use a LOW VOC, water-based stain, and the staining process will add some additional time to your order vs. unfinished.

Armrest Styles Available for this Full Futon Frame

Everest – solid panel design, with a higher and wider armrest than Grand Teton or Adirondack (shown in image 5)
With this frame, you have many options. The only thing we recommend staying away from (if you can help it) is a very thin mattress. It’s hard to tell what’s considered “thin” because the range of what’s available varies so much. Most futon sets sold at Big Box stores come with a 6-7 inch futon mattress. We hear they are very uncomfortable, if not right away, shortly after owning and using it. Our thinnest is an 8-Inch Traditional Style Futon Mattress, and we sell mostly 9-Inch and 10-Inch with this frame.
