We are your go-to place for a new mattress. This extends beyond just the bed in your master bedroom. If you have a small guest room that doubles as an office or a living room that serves as a place to sleep for overnight guests, a futon is a wonderful idea. We also sell futon mattresses!

What is a Futon?

A futon is incredibly convenient and efficient, especially for homes that don't have a bedroom dedicated to being a guest room. A futon is a comfortable spot to sit by day, yet easily transforms into a bed when guests decide to stay overnight. They’re priced very affordably, making them a great choice for all budgets.

While this may be handy for you, it’s only going to be comfortable for your guest if the futon mattress is a high-quality one. Thankfully, you can trust City Mattress to have top-tier futon mattresses, which is exactly what you already expect from the traditional mattresses we sell for beds!

What Sizes are Available?

Now that you have a better idea what a futon is, you can now ask “What size is a futon mattress?” We carry futon mattresses in Twin, Full, and Queen sizes. Beyond the size of the futon mattress, you can then choose a color, material, and specific product. Just like a traditional mattress made for your bedroom, all futon mattresses are not the same!
