Review for The Futon Favorite
It was time. The foam mattress was at its end. What to do? Something affordable. Something not made of foam (no matter how fancy). Futons came to mind. Google provided various providers including amazon, multilocation bed stores, etc. The pictures look good, the reviews were not. The Futon Favorite was the next link on the search page. Wow! This is what I was looking for. Tom Flower made the futons himself. He looked like an honest happy chap and it would give me an opportunity to support a local mom and pop business.
It was well worth the hour drive from East Mesa to Phoenix. His store is lovely, has all the various styles to try out. It was a busy day at the store, giving us time to try out different blends of cotton and foam fill, look at the variety of folding and flat frames and the variety of covers, pillows, etc . I decided on all cotton batting and a simple platform. This fit my budget perfectly. We were there on a Thursday and delivery was set for the following Monday. Wayne, the delivery and set up fellow was right on time and put the frame together in about 45 minutes and Voila! I had a new bed. The futon is very comfortable, fits in the space perfectly. Finally a good nights sleep! I am really pleased and delighted with my interaction with Tom and highly recommend his store, The Futon Favorite. His prices are fair, the futon is excellent quality and he a fine, honest person to work with.
