We make thick, comfortable futon mattresses using the finest quality fillings. Our futons are firm but with a softer surface layer to give them a relaxing, comfortable feel.

The fillings we use are Rebound Polycotton, i-Fibre and pure Wool:
Rebound Polycotton
, a special blend of cotton and polycotton, is the thickest component and provides much of the bulk and character of the futon.
i-Fibre is a brilliant technological innovation in which the fibres of the polyester are arranged vertically, rather than layered horizontally, so they act like springs and have less tendency to compress. This makes the futon firmer, gives it resilience, more substance and a longer life.
Pure Wool is used for the outer layers of the futon. Wool has excellent thermal properties as a temperature regulator and is very breathable.

To put these fillings in context, futon makers have a wide range of options for their fillings. Our policy has always been to avoid the cheaper fillings that give less substance and comfort – and have a shorter lifespan. We think the results are the best we’ve achieved in 30 years of futon making. Our futons are still made in the traditional way with square boxed corners and a zip around three sides so that we can add the filling one layer at a time and fit the filling closely into the corners. We then use a long needle to pass several cotton ties through the futon to keep the filling in place.
If you want to know how futons have developed in the UK, take a look our blog A Short History of the Futon. Exciting reading! For some styling inspiration take a look at our feature: Futon Sofa Beds for Flexibility & Style.

NB: Our futon mattresses are made to order – the standard lead time is 3-4 weeks.

Futon Colours

There is a choice of colours for the Cotton futon case: we’d suggest Calico (undyed ivory cotton) if the futon is for a bed. For a sofa bed the coloured fabrics give you a range of colours to suit your decor. Our futons are finished with coloured cotton ties which pass through the futon and keep the filling in position. Choose from: natural, black, navy or grey ties.
The cover is not removable, however you can have an additional loose cover which fits neatly and has a zip around three sides so it can be easily removed for cleaning. Please look at the Loose Covers page for details.

Fabric samples for futons and covers are available on request.

Our standard, 7L, futons contain 7 layers of filling. We recommend our futon mattresses for those under 95kg, however if you weigh over 80Kg you will probably want a thicker/firmer mattress and we’d recommend two 4 layer futons used together – or one of our other types of mattress.

  • Futon mattresses become firmer over time but will typically last between 5 and 10 years. Because the filling can absorb the moisture trapped under the quilt when you sleep, good maintenance is essential to maximise the life of your futon mattress. We recommend that you turn the futon over and from side to side every two weeks. If you use it on the floor you should do this twice a week.
  • If you intend to sleep on a futon mattress every night, whatever your weight, we recommend that it is used with a bed base with beech sprung slats (as opposed to a sofa bed base with fixed pine slats). Our futons, when used with our sofa-bed bases, are recommended for occasional use as a mattress.
  • Futons can be made in special shapes and sizes.

We recommend our futon mattress for our bases, if using a slat base from another supplier – please ensure the gap between the slats is no more than 7cm (if your bed base has wider gaps please contact us to discuss which mattress will best suit your bed base).

If you would like some advice on maintenance for your futon mattress please take a look at our blog – Looking After Your Futon Mattress. Check out our latest blog for more information on the benefits if our made-to-measure futon mattresses.

Prices include free delivery to most addresses on the UK mainland.

Our futon mattresses work well with a Japanese style room, if you are looking for ideas on how to create a Japanese style bedroom at home just take a look at our pinterest board.

Our futon mattresses are available in two thickness options – a four layer and a seven layer. A four layer futon mattress is approximately 3 and a half inches thick, a seven layer futon is around 6 inches thick.

Our futons are made as standard 200cm in length to fit our sofa beds. However, as we make each futon mattress to order we can make them shorter or longer. We are often asked to make smaller futons (double and below) a little shorter in-order to fit on standard (double and below) UK bed bases which are 190cm in length.

Please contact us if you require a special size – we will do what we can to help.

Our futon mattresses are entirely made in the UK by our Sheffield craftsmen and women.

    :

    We ordered a this in calico and 7 layers for a euro kingsize futon base. It came all rolled up and was not over heavy to get on the bed, very comfortable to sleep on. We’ve been really pleased with it, and very impressed with the customer service we received from the Natural Bed Company.

    :

    I ordered a EU King size seven layer futon mattress and I have to say it’s better than I was expecting. Very well made, and very comfortable. The mattress is lightweight and easy to move.
    The customer service has been amazing and personable, and there were no problems with the delivery – which was such a relief!
    I was a bit nervous about spending the money without seeing the product, but I had no need to worry. I’m very happy.
    Highly recommend. Thank you 🙂

Cleaning our futon mattresses:
For liquid stains – remove the liquid with a dry paper cloth – do jot rub the mark. For small marks use a domestic stain remover, but first test the colour fastness on a concealed part of the cloth. Avoid over-wetting the mark and thoroughly dry. Always work from the edge of the mark to the centre to limit watermarking. Do not remove the cover of your futon cover, although if necessary you can partly unzip the cover if you need to dry the inside filling with a hair dryer on a medium heat.
For severe soiling contact a specialist furniture cleaner.

For loose covers – dry-clean only.
