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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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!

áby 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 5áby 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.
