Furniture Buying Guide: Futons

History has it that futons come originally from Japan, and there they were the simple mattresses that could be easily rolled up and stored away if not needed. The contemporary futons are still flexible in use, but they do differ from the Japanese ancestors. This piece of furniture is also known as the convertible sofa. And it comes in different sizes, styles, positions, so that it performs double duty to furnish the living room and to provide an extra sleeping space for unexpected guests. As a brilliant example – the Teddy Bear Grey Sofa Bed by Coaster Furniture. Interested? Find more versatile futons at Decor123com!


Furniture Buying Guide: Reclining Sofas

It has a backrest that can be optionally tilted back and a footrest that often may be extended. So, you can let your feet rest and unwind in a comfort of the reclining sofa.

Furniture Buying Guide: Sleigh Beds

This week we are starting our bed style weekly guide. Décor 123 team will help you to find out the meaning behind the definition, choose the right style to fit your design preferences, apartment ambiance and interior.

Today we are here to tell you what is a sleigh bed. The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘sleigh’ will give you a hint at once. The classic sleigh bed has curved or scrolled footboard and headboard, resembling old-style sleigh or sled.

Traditionally it is made of wood, as the Trishley Sleigh Bed by Ashley Furniture displayed below, but the contemporary trends led to a variety of materials to be used, including iron and steel. Though wood, including oak and mahogany, remains the top material. For a modern update, upholstery and leather are also used.

Sleigh beds have a sophisticated feel, with slender curves and statement headboards. The curves and scrolls depend on the designer’s inception: the sleigh beds may come with more or less exaggerated curves. This kind of a bed style adds an antique, French-inspired feel to the room.
