Description

Darwin 2 Seater Futon – (4ft6 and 5ft)

The Darwin is the top of the range pine ‘A’ frame and can’t be matched for quality, strength and comfort.

The Darwin is an evolutionary product, taking the ‘A’ frame concept with all its advantages, to the best on the market. When the basic ‘A’ frame is in a seat position the seat section of the frame always angles slightly backwards and downwards to hold the futon into position and improve the quality of sitting. We have used stylishly shaped under-rails which lifts the seat section which raise automatically when put down into a bed. This creates a completely flat bed, unlike many other competitors ‘A’ frames which will have a rake on one end.

The Darwin is higher off the ground than other ‘A’ frames which allows the futon to breath and prolongs the life of the futon mattress.

Quality Features

  • The pine used for the Darwin is a premium quality for strength and durability.
  • The Darwin comes with a thicker and heavier under-rail which supports the slates and makes the Darwin a really strong and hard-wearing.

Converting the sofa into a bed and back

See our “Video” tab above to see the mechanism in use.

  1. To convert from seating position to a bed remove the futon and pull the frame forwards to where you want the foot or head to be. Lift the back of the frame and it simply folds down into the bed.
  2. To place back into the seating position, pull and roll the futon forwards until it rests on the front of the frame. Lift the back until the under-rails engage. To complete the seat, support the front of the futon with your shin and then lift and roll the mattress back into the ‘S’ shape. Make sure the futon does not come too far forward. It should be level with the front of the frame.

Mattress Styles

Futon

The traditional futon mattress is all one piece and sits in an “S” shape on the frame, so when you sit on it you are sitting on two layers of the futon. Available with the various fillings below.

Studio

A more modern “sofa” than “sofabed” look, splitting the mattress into two sections. This gives you the option of either leaving the smaller section attached down the back of the futon or removing it altogether for storage, so the frame will sit against the wall. The zip makes it quick and easy to attach the separate section for use as a bed. By having these separate sections we are able to use the thicker Twin Loft filling for ultimate comfort. It features 2 layers of Lamb’s Wool, 2 layers of rebound Polyester and 3 layers of Felt.
