Rated 5 out of 5áby AuntSue2 Beautiful craftsmanship
The futon frame is very well made and the wood is a lovely color. I was able to put all of it together myself, except the last step really does need two people. I did put the rollers on backwards first, but that was easily remedied. The mattress is very thick and as a couch the futon is very comfortable. I wanted something that was good to flop on for my cottage and yet comfortable for someone to occasionally sleep on and this is it. I did order the bolsters and that is necessary for comfort. I ordered a slipcover which is back ordered and hope it fits well. Also ordered pillows which are back ordered. This futon is good for a tall person but a shorter person will appreciate the pillows. I believe this futon will last for many happy years here.

Rated 5 out of 5áby IntermittentCustomer Mission Futon
It is an attractive piece of furniture and appears to be solid. I found it easy to assemble but you definitely need two people when putting the moving center piece in the outer frame. One person may be able to do it but there would be a real risk of scratching the wood.
Comfortable to sit in. Nobody has slept in it yet so I can't say how comfortable that would be.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ellenio Just what the doctor ordered, and more!
I needed a replacement futon sofa frame, and a friend in Japan had this frame, and I was impressed. I am having surgery in a month and needed to get a "bed" on my first floor, and this sofa bed was the perfect solution! It is so attractive that I think it will stay in the living room. The back has two settings so that it can be straight up, or at an angle. I had my own futon to put on it and it is perfect! The proportions are right and it's so comfy that I'm sorry I waited.
The boxes it came in were kind of beaten up, but the frame was in perfect order. I had planned to move this up to my guest room after my recuperation but I'm thinking now that I will buy a 2nd one for my guest room. I love the fact that it really is a fantastic sofa on its own, yet can also be a solid, comfortable, full-sized bed. That flexibility is something I really appreciate in a home where I either have no guests...or ten! My upstairs guest room will be a library -- comfy sofa for reading...until we have guests...The mission line is quite nice. The wood is exceptionally pretty!

Rated 5 out of 5áby bizzygirl Nice Looking Solid Futon
This piece is high quality and nice looking. Although it's in our attic guest room, it is nice enough to be an every day couch. My husband particularly liked the height of the arms, and that as a couch, he could lie down flat on it (He's 6'1"#
The assembly was relatively easy and only required screw drivers, but you MUST have 2 people. It is also very heavy when delivered, so make sure that there are 2 people to bring it into the house. There are 3 packages to be delivered: the futon frame which weighs about 120 pounds, the arms which weigh about 35 pounds, and the mattress, if ordered, which weighs about 65 pounds and arrives rolled, in a box, covered in plastic. It was well packed and there was no damage to any of the parts and it arrived well in advance of the delivery time I was quoted.
The 3 boxes will not be shipped together, so I did have to make sure that everything was on the way.
The futon cover is of durable fabric, and has a zipper all the way around which would facilitate cleaning. The mattress is very comfortable and solid and both of us #we are both size XL) could lie comfortably on the mattress. Once you get the hang of converting it into a bed, it's easy. We found it was easier to do the converting with the mattress off.
I have just ordered the matching pillows, which I think will make it even more comfortable.
This is not the cheapest futon out there, but I think it is an excellent guest room or cottage piece.
I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LuckyforMe Great piece of furniture this futon!
I needed an extra guest bed and this piece is great. Two "old" women put it together in an hour. Very well engineered. Sturdy and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pepper55 Wonderful futon!
If you're futon shopping, look no further! This is a solid, well-constructed futon frame, and the wood is gorgeous! We ordered the mattress at the same time; it's comfortable and very well made. We are 100% satisfied with our purchase!

We needed an extra bed for our guest room/basement, and this fit the bill. It arrived quickly (before the projected delivery date) and was easy to assemble. I don't know how long we've had it, but the mattress has not held up well. It's only used as a bed a handful of times a year, but it's lumpy and never has completely filled out the cover making it loose and junky looking. I expected a better quality mattress.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ReeRee52 Good-looking and very sturdy sofa!
We decided to update our guest room with the Mission Futon. It arrived as advertised. Other than needing my help in placing the upper section onto the lower section, my husband put it together in about 45 minutes with no issues. I especially like the piece of non-skid material that came with the mattress as it helps to keep it in place. While we haven't used it as a bed yet, it is very comfortable to sit on and looks just great!

Rated 5 out of 5áby ReeRee52 Excellent Way To Update Our Guest Room!
We decided to make better use of our guest room; this futon has worked out perfectly. Except for when it came time to place the upper section onto the lower section, my husband put it together, alone, in about 45 minutes. It arrived as advertised and we are very pleased with the comfort as a sofa, it hasn't been used yet as a bed. I am particularly pleased with the non-skid material that came with the mattress. It keeps the mattress in place and looks neat.

I love the color and style of this futon frame. With the addition of the blue floral mattress cover I am so happy with the look. I've already gotten several compliments on how pretty it is. My reason for only 4stars is that there is a 4" crack in the frame. But with LLBean's excellent 100% satisfaction guarantee, I know that if there's an additional problem they will make it right.
