Please find described below details of our choice of futon fillings. If you have any questions regarding filling types please call us on 01752 662030. As a simple guide use the following......choose:
Cotton Rich Fillings - a good choice if you want a softer, more 'springy' feel to your futon, combined with a high content of cotton.
Standard Fillings - choose the standard filling combination for a traditional 'firm but supportive' feel to your futon.
FlexiPocket fillings for 2 seat futon sofas - suitable for 2 seat hardwood and pine futon bases providing a comfortable and durable futon mattress for regular use.
Ultimate Foam Fillings - available on our 3 seat futon sofa beds and bi-fold type futon mattresses, a sturdy foam core provides a firm and durable futon mattress for everyday use.
Pocket Sprung Fillings - again available on our 3 seat futon sofa beds and bi-fold futon mattresses, using a 4 cm pocket spring cage in the center of the woolfelt layers, perfect for a softer sit and sleep.
A standard high quality filling. This contains a pure lambswool top and bottom layer, special futon felt layers which contain cotton and wool (wools adds natural spring to the mixture) and a layer of rebound polyester providing comfort and shape to your futon mattress. Provided as a standard 6-layer on all 'tri-fold' style futons including the Auckland, Eco and hardwood 2 seaters, and with an extra layer of felt and rebound polyester on bi-fold (or 'bench-style') models for extra durability, creating our unique twin-loft futon.
A great choice of filling style for two seat futon sofa beds. The FlexiPocket uses a top and bottom layer of pure lambswool and then features a central layer of micro pocket springs encased in four layers of woolfelt. This futon mattress provides a softer, but supportive, feel with a durable filling designed for regular use. Suitable for two seat futons such as our Cavendish or Auckland 2 seaters.
If you need a firm and durable futon filling for everyday use then the Ultimate Foam is a great choice. Top and bottom layers of lambswool surround layers of woolfelt with one central layer of rebound polyester and another of reflex foam, helping to keep your futon mattress standing correctly on the frame when in regular use. Suitable for use on three seat style futon sofa beds such as our Cavendish or Akino three seaters.
A luxury feel with a softer sit and sleep is provided by the Pocket Sprung futon mattress, perfect for everyday use. The mattress is filled top and bottom with a layer of lambswool, then layers of woolfelt and finished with a central 4 cm pocket spring cage providing great 'rebound' in the futon for a softer feel. Suitable for use on our three seat futon sofa beds including the Cavendish, Akino and Milan, can also be used as an everyday sleep futon bed mattress.
Although cotton was used in the traditional futon in the past and is a superb product, it has a tendency to matt down and produce lumps. We can now offer a pure cotton filling mixed with a small amount of polyester / woolfelt. This product has all the advantages of cotton, but the polyester reduces the matting process.
We hope you will be pleased with the end result. We are now able to offer cotton-rich layers throughout the futon, giving you all the advantages of cotton without the matting down. This product uses mainly pure cotton and is therefore more expensive than a cotton-woolfelt mix, but we hope you'll agree its well worth it!.
Like the standard futon mattress the Unique mattress can be provided as a standard 6-layer on all 'tri-fold' style futons including the Auckland, Eco and hardwood 2 seaters, and with an extra layer of rebound Polyester and cotton-rich felt on bi-fold (or 'bench-style') models for extra durability, creating our Unique twin-loft futon.
