áby NonieP Love it!
Received frame, mattress, denim cover and pillows separately, as described when ordered, and in the time frame promised. The packaging was pretty banged up, but the items within were fine. When the frame arrived (last - as predicted) we put it aside with the other items to assemble the next day, because we had read it would take two people to do so. My husband woke me with a cup of coffee the next morning and surprised me with the whole thing set up. He said it was a piece of cake and took about 20 minutes altogether. The denim cover had an odor when first opened up, either from the dye or the stain preventative (smelled like Scotchguard). But that dissipated quickly. We thought it would look great on the sun porch of our river cottage and it does. It arrived in June and this is September - still love it just as much. It takes a beating with grandkids and dogs - spills bead up and dog fur brushes right off. We have not tried it as a bed yet, but glad to know it can be used as such if need be. It's very comfortable as a sofa. We're so happy with this purchase, we're planning to order some more of the painted furniture..

Rated 5 out of 5áby ramblingrosie WARNING: poor shipping
This is perfect for my guest cottage. Good looking and well made. However it is very heavy and, despite having to pay $60 extra for shipping, it was sent regular UPS. Because it was too heavy for the driver to carry on his own, it was left on the ground and I needed to hire 2 men to carry it into my house for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kedavis4 Well Crafted Item
We ordered the painted cottage futon and mattress recently. We received the items in two shipments within a few days of each other in less than two weeks.
My husband was able to put the frame together in about two hours including unpacking. It seems to be very sturdy and the mechanism for converting it from a "couch" to a bed worked perfectly. It also appears to be well balanced so that it is not tipping over when someone sleeps on it. It is very attractive and fits nicely in our office/guest bedroom area.
Time will tell, but it seems to be very well crafted and we are quite pleased with it.

Basically good. Delivery was sooner than promised. Several gouges in one arm I was not expecting!

Rated 5 out of 5áby WROXY Great Futon, Easy Assembly
Ordered our futon last week and it arrived a few days later. Pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to assemble--we did it in under 45 minutes. Looks great and feels comfortable. As usual, pleased with LL Bean!

áby DONCOP COTTAGE FUTON
This piece is even nicer in person. The mattress pad part is a little stiff but it is a bed afterall. It was very easy to put together and took us about 15 minutes. The instructions were very user friendly. All parts were included. It is very sturdy and seems of good quality. We are very pleased. Looks great in our beach cottage.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Maeve1234567 Cover doesn't fit this mattress
Went to L.L. Bean in Freeport ME. Sales woman was wonderful BUT this is the problem. The futon cover is just to big for the mattress. I bought mine a year ago and it is awful looking. Even the cover on their sales floor doesn't fit. She suggested cotton batting to fill it up but I bought 2 (largest size) swim/pool noodles and duct taped them to the top of the futon mattress. It does look better but one does not expect this from an LL Bean product. As someone else said here, it does not look like the picture. It was a huge disappointment as I built a room around this couch.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Dakuze I wish it looked like the photo
Frame and mattress dropped off on my front walk with no notice. The large box weighed over 100 pounds! The small box (mattress) slightly less. The frame only has 6 parts and was easy to assemble, even though one of the hinge pins was an inch too long. The mattress is another story - lumpy, heavy, hard to handle, and ill fitting. The "optional" at extra cost cover does not fit well at all. The cover shown in the photo must have been done by a tailor.

Rated 5 out of 5áby firstcarefulshopper great buy
We looked at many versions of a futon and settled on this due to its great look and our confidence in LLBean. It came in quick order and was exactly as pictured. There was a slight crack in one piece which LLBean has dealt with immediately by replacing part at no cost to us. The mattress is very comfortable compared to others and we are very satisfied with the purchase. Did I say the couch is really good looking and very well built? As a addition to our "office /4th BR" with the added advantage of being comfortable enough to use as a bed for our family visitors we are happy!

Rated 5 out of 5áby guffy better assembly info needed but LOVE the futons
first, i am blown away by the two futons i bought in painted white. they are sturdy, good looking, and surprisingly comfortable to lie out on and watch tv. nice firm seating and the covers are trim and not sloppy looking.
now for the warning: these are bears to assemble. very shabby directions. it took 4 hours to assemble both couches. my daughter is fit and did most of the assembly with mild assistance from me. yes, two people needed for sure.
i would love llbean to make a video of the method for conversion
from couch to bed and vice versa as well as the method for adjusting seat back to slightly reclined position. words do not fill the bill. actually the whole assembly should be in the video. if no video is possible...how about some stick figures? i would like to feel confident about changing position, etc.
every time i walk through my living room i smile...gotta say i love these futons...i wish i bought them years ago...i finally figured out how to dog proof living room seating and still have a nice looking comfortable arrangement.
