What is a Futon
Imagine coming home after a long day and craving a relaxing sleep in the most serene environment possible. A minimalist futon is the perfect addition to your living space to provide that much-needed comfort and tranquility. Steeped in ancient Japanese tradition, a japanese style futon is a mattress that you can fold, typically consisting of three essential components.
Nestled on the ground or a tatami mat, the futon mattress ensures a gentle and supportive surface for your body. Below the mattress lies the shikibuton, a three-folding pad that adds an additional layer of cushioning and enhances the overall comfort. To complete the cozy experience, a Kakibuton comforter is draped on top of the thin cotton pad, embracing you in a warm and snug cocoon.
As you rest on the minimalist futon, you'll be transported to a world of relaxation, as if you were floating on a cloud of ancient wisdom and luxurious slumber.
The Futon Shop, though a Japanese name by nature, embodies a rich history and passion for handcrafting futons in the traditional style that has truly stood the test of time. More than forty years ago, the founders of The Futon Shop meticulously crafted their very first futons, ensuring that they were as close to traditional futons as possible in terms of their production process and natural ingredients.
As the years have gone by, The Futon Shop continues to embrace its roots, serving both as a thriving business and a loving homage to the time-honored tradition of authentic futon-making for any room size.
