Our Futon Mattresses.
Our Futon Mattresses are sourced direct from the factory, in Woodbury, Devon. All of the futon mattresses are individually hand manufactured to our specifications using combinations of lambswool, bonded felt and rebound polyester or foam, with additional fillings including Coir, Natural Latex and Pocket Springs available depending on your requirements. The futons are covered in a choice of tough cotton drills, chenilles or faux-suede fabrics.
You can select different filling types to suit your requirements on each product page. Making you choice can be complex, so please feel free to call us for advice.
Our Futon Bases.
Our traditional pine futon bases are manufactured in Vietnam to our specification, using a tough Radiata pine to reduce splintering and 'sap' pockets. All our pine bed bases are fully UK manufactured using Scandinavian pine, whilst the hardwood bases use eco-friendly 'rubberwood' from Malaysia. We have found, over the years, that the quality of futon bases from Malaysia and Vietnam has consistantly been of a high quality and the forestation rules governing their production ensure a correct turnaround of replanting. Metal bases are now sourced from China, where the latest manufacturing techniques have provided quality products at big value for money prices.
Direct Delivery or Factory Collection?
We can deliver direct to your home, or place of work, throughout mainland UK, by a parcel carrier, such as NightFreight or CityLink, or we can now offer you the choice of collecting your purchase direct from our factory in Woodbury on the edge of Exeter, just off the M5 motorway.

Kitsch Attic Furnishings in Cornwall
I have to add a note about this great small business down in Rock, Cornwall. We had some dining chairs re-covered by Louise at Kitsch Attic in an unusual fabric combination that looks great in our dining room; a particulalry dark room with lots of wood. If you're in Devon or Cornwall and need this type of work doing I would recommend them. Follow the link to Kitsch Attic Furnishings, Rock, Cornwall.
