According to Wikipedia, futons began as traditional Japanese flat mattress beds made of quilting and thick padding. These are considered to be very functional, because their pliability makes it easy to move the beds to different areas of the house when they are not being used. Futons are usually sold in the U.S. and European countries with a wooden or metal frame that converts the bedding into a couch or day bed when it is not being used for sleep. Western-style futons are also much larger than Japanese futons and they have covers which are typically made in a variety of colors and fabric selections.
