In this article we've taken a look at several leading futon furniture manufacturers. August Lotz which was founded in the late 1800s went from making wooden bee hive equipment to creating wooden frame decks using sliding English dovetail joinery. Mark Barton was lead engineer for Lotz and created most of the concepts and designs used throughout the line today. LifeStyle Solutions was founded originally under the name of Elite and is an import manufacturer who brought transitional designs into the futon industry. LifeStyle Solutions was among the first brands to incorporate Asian inspired designs and finishes throughout their line. Finally Night and Day Furniture founded by Mike Gallawa. Night and Day wanted to take a unique approach to futon design by simplifying the way futons go together. Developing patented hardware and assembly methods allowed them to make a futon frame easier to assemble.

Because of the additional weight, old style wooden framed box springs cannot properly support most new mattresses, so new mattresses and box springs are often sold as sets.
