Twin XL Shikibuton 4" loft cotton & wool

$260 $325

This item was returned. Twin XL 39" x 80"

This futon is most similar to the Japanese style of futon and minimalist way of life. A very thin, firm mat that can be rolled up and tucked away when not in use. It is customary for the shikibuton to be placed directly on tatami flooring then folded and placed out of sight throughout the day for versatility in the room. A shikibuton is just at home in a penthouse as it is in an air stream. Great for someone use to sleeping on tatami mats or as the occasional guest bed. (Some side sleepers find this mattress too thin and firm without the use of an additional topper or base support.) Add a topper or additional shikibuton for adding comfort and depth.

Our shikibuton futon mattress is made to industry standard sizes: . Three layers of soft natural cotton batting and an outer layer of wool composes the filling of this mattress and a 100% cotton fabric is used for the outer shell. Our staggered tufting pattern holds the cotton fibers firmly in place.

This futon starts out with a soft, plush feel and will compact down to a firmer feel with regular use. Flipping and rotating your futon will maintain it's comfort and will help make sure the fibers are settling/compacting evenly. The shikibuton is designed to be used on the floor or solid surface. Not suitable for a slatted frame as you will be able to feel the slats underneath.

Futon mattresses come in all shapes and sizes, and we can even craft custom sizes for boats, RVs etc.  The most common sizes we sell are Twin, Full & Queen, standard mattress sizes. Below is a sampling of the standard sizes we carry and pictures showing them in action. As always If you have any questions or just need more info let us know, we are here to help!

 

We fill our futons with a set formula but because batches of cotton can vary and we make our futons by hand, they don't always start their life at perfect mattress dimensions. Usually a futon will begin up to three inches shorter than industry standard. As the fibers inside compact, they spread outward often causing a gain of 1-3 inches. This compaction process can take up to a year to accomplish.
A note on ordering: unfortunately we cannot stock everything in our catalog, most futons are made to order. This can take up to 2 weeks for your new futon or mattress to become available. If you need something right away, please call the store and ask us to check inventory before placing your order online. Otherwise, we will call you when your order is available for pick up.

Couch Frames - Choosing The Right Size


The type and level of use you anticipate for your futon will determine the type of frame to best suit your needs. Futon frames generally come in two broad varieties: folding frames and stationary platform beds.

Platform Bed Sizes

Single and Twin size mattresses are the same, and are usually used for kids' rooms or solitary sleepers. Full and Double size mattresses are the same. Double beds are only 15" wider than twins, which may not be adequate for 2 adults. Queen size mattresses are our most popular size for platform beds. The 60" width comfortably accommodates most adults.
This is the widest standard bed available, providing enough room for 2 large adults, plus the family dog! This is the longest standard bed available, making it ideal for taller people, and only 4 inches narrower than the King size.



Futon Covers - Choose The Right Size


 

In order to ensure you get a futon cover that fits your futon mattress, it is important that you measure your mattress correctly.

To accurately gauge the size of your futon mattress, measure all three dimensions. length, width, and height (height can also be referred to as loft or depth).

Measure the longest side (length) of the futon as accurately as you can from corner seam to corner seam. Then measure the width and height in the same manner.

Most of the covers Cotton Cloud Futons sells are designed to fit a 6" thick mattress. If your mattress is thicker or thinner than these measurements, let us know and we will have a cover custom made to fit it correctly.

Be as accurate as you can when measuring, the size of the futon may vary with age and usage. Use the standard sizes below to identify what size futon mattress you have.

They are also a bit more difficult to operate than full size mattresses. A queen size futon can also be used on a tri-fold frame to make an oversized chair.
