Piping or welting is a thick cotton cording wrapped in fabric, that is sewn on your futon cover wherever there are seams. This decorative addition makes a futon mattress look more like a cushion or a conventional box spring style mattress as it squares of the edges and can create a complimentary color distinction when looking at your futon. Many feel this simple embellishment to their mattress or futon cover greatly adds to the look of their futon and gives extra visual dimension. For the piping you can choose the same fabric or a contrasting fabric, depending on what look you are going for. Mix and match to create a futon that is as stunning visually as it is comfortable to sleep on. If you want a square linear look to your futon just add piping. You may use a coordinating fabric and then match pillows or the same fabric to match your futon cover for thousands of stylistic possibilities. Only your imagination is the limit of our options!
