Rated 5 out of 5 by George Futon and accessories
Just received the Futon. Delivery of all items on time and in good order. A few hours to put together and now in use. It is a handsome piece of furniture, ideal for a beach cottage. Sturdy, practical and could be used as a sleeping couch without the trouble of the Futon transformation. Looking forward to LL Bean quality in it's durability for years to come. Technical assistance from LL Bean staff during the purchase process was outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cottontail Excellent product!
I waited a long time before I purchased the futon. I bought it when LL Bean was having a 15% sale on the entire purchase. It was well worth the wait and the savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HigginsLake Couldn't be happier!
We love this futon at our cottage! Beautiful, well-made, sturdy and comfortable! Set-up definitely required two people as this is heavy, but we are so happy we purchased this futon! We got the cover in denim and the white coffee table - really brightens up the room!

by agkenne Beautiful, but not that easy to set up
I am writing this review on the day after we set up our futon. It looks gorgeous in our living room, and is just as it was pictured. (Well, the mattress isn't as straight as it is in the catalog photos, but then we're not professional photographers.)
It wasn't as easy for us to set up as others have said, though. We struggled a bit with getting the seat on the frame and the rollers in the right tracks. This step in the assembly process definitely could NOT be performed by one person. After we got that step finished, we had trouble getting the cover on the mattress. The mattress is heavy and slippery! It doesn't have any handles, so the only way we could figure out how to move it around was with bungee cords.
As I said before, the futon, frame, and cover look beautiful now that we have it assembled, and I am sure we will love it through the years (hence the five stars). It's also very comfortable. See... even Sparky likes it! But I just wanted to get our assembly struggles documented here before we forgot them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harvestlyn Well Built, Beautiful Piece
I've been eyeing this cottage futon for a couple of years, and finally bought it this Spring. It is so well built, and gorgeous! I was doing up my spare room into a guest bedroom with colored walls and all white furniture. It looks amazing, and everyone who's slept on the futon said it was really comfortable. I can't recommend this piece enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CTladyshopper Nice look
I really liked the look of the futon. It is the first time I have ever ordered furniture online. However, when I got it in, the frame was cracked. There were cracks where several screws were placed. I was concerned this may crack more. My husband was not too happy. We did not call to have it returned. I was afraid that it would take a long time to get another and it may just happen again. My husband felt it would be fine for the kids. From now on, I would most likely not buy furniture online, but in a store so I could see it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Beautifull
I was surprised and very happy with this cottage futon. It is very sturdy and well made. The mattress is very thick, not a flimsy piece of foam. My son was able to assemble it by himself, although two people would be easier, it's heavy. It is beautiful. The cover has to be ordered separately, which isn't really clear on the site. Nevertheless, it is a very comfortable, very nice piece of furniture. Much better then I expected. In addition LLBean customer service is wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maeve1234567 Color is different from photo
I was going to build my LR around this futon cover in the blue print. Online it looks like the background is off white (nice & bright) but when it arrived it is a deep tan almost taupe. Much too dark. I will return it for the denim blue color and start over. Otherwise, it looks like a good product.

I brought these futon/cottage-style frames 16 years ago when I first did my small home. Due to a flood in my basement when I was away, I had to replace them. What luck that the same item was available so many years later with a more comfortable, better designed futon mattress. Same excellent quality, ease of assembly and great look. Bravo LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by seacreature71 Painted cottage futon,mattress, slipcover,bolsters
This futon is perfect. It meets all the requirements I needed for Lovely guestroom sofa and comfortable bed. I am so impressed with LL Bean customer support. Placed the order and was told items would arrive separately, which they did. items were boxed padded very well. The painted fame needed a little touch up paint which was supplied within days. Frame had one barrel bolt that didn't fit....customer support bent over backwards to get extra ones to me on time. Sandy, Peggy, Nancy you are the best. The futon is well made, strong, directions easy to follow. It does take two people for one part of the assembly unless you have really long arms. mattress very comfortable to sit or sleep on with heavy duty covering. I chose floral multi colored pattern. The fabric is strong, colors beautiful as pictured. Heavy duty zippers on slip cover and bolsters. Bolsters in same pattern add nice extra. These are quality made . The few hiccups that occurred were so quickly addressed. When you call LL Bean you speak to real people, they listen and call you back as promised, leave their number..... AND they call again to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. How many companies do this? I know I can always count on LL Bean to have excellent quality and back up their products. Customer service WOW. This futon looks like it was made for my guestroom. You could use it anywhere. I am delighted. sea creature 71
