 FEBRUARY 1, 2024 UGA DORM DELIVERY UPDATE

We may not be able to provide UGA Dorm Delivery this year. Please plan accordingly and I apologize for any inconvenience. See the Delivery/Installation page for the most current updates.

We offer delivery to all dorm parking lots for $50.00 for those that need it but I would rather see you save your money by picking it up yourself. The set up is easy because there is no assembly required! The measurments and pictures below may help you decide if you want to do that. I also advise making purchases as soon as possible to avoid possible price increases or shortages that have been occurinig all year without notice. If you have the storage space, go ahead and pick it up to be on the safe side. The next best option is to order and pay by phone, then pick it up when you can. If you need a parking lot delivery, please reserve your time frame now so we can plan accordingly.

Solid covers are sold separately at $59.95 and $69.95, depending on the material, and there are plenty of colors to choose from. Click here to see more solid covers.

Frame Only $199.95

8" Thick Liberty Futon Mattress Only $199.95

Grand Teton Oak Futon FrameDescription
The L-Frame is our most popular futon frame for students and comfortably seats three adults in the sofa position plus easily lays back into a bed. At 72 inches wide, it fits under all lofts including the shorter beds in Creswell Hall. L-Frames come in two pre-assembled parts that are easily joined together by two cotter pins and two clevis pins. That one-of-a-kind feature makes set up a breeze and is a life saver when it comes time to move out at the end of the term. Heavy duty construction allows for a no hassle Lifetime Warranty from the manufacturer.

Measurments:
Frame: 72" x 52" (This frame will fit under the shorter beds in Creswell Hall)
Futon Mattress: 54" x 75"

Construction
Made In America right here in Georgia from Southern Yellow Pine because of its beautiful appearance and resilience. Two 2" x 6" runners along the bottom make the frame strong and sturdy and the L-Frame comes in two pieces for easy transportation. Just line up two holes and stick a clevis pin through and it's put together.

The 8" thick futon mattress has a 3 inch layer of dense foam and 5 inches of cotton batting. The outer shell is made with a canvas fabric.

Accessories

Large Selection of Solid Futon Covers from $59.95

Futon Mattress Protectors are $59.95 and highly recommended because they're waterproof and protect against bed bugs, dust mites, allergens and bacteria. Ours are custom made from 100% Stretch Kinit Polyester to fit all of our 7 to 9 inch thick futon mattresses. They zip tightly all the way around the mattress and easily bend with it when folded.

Grip Strips made by Otis Bed ae $29.95 a pair and will prevent your futon mattress from sliding down the frame. Nothing else will work as well!

Our L Frame and futon mattress are both lightweight and easy to pickup and setup yourself. They are the easiest to load into a pickup truck but we can get them into other vehicles, too.
The futon frame is in two sections banded together to become 72' long X 38" wide X 8' deep.
The futon mattress is folded in half to become roughly 54" long X 32" wide X 16" deep.

Hardwood Futon Frame Collection

We offer 9 models in our hardwood futon frame collection as reflected in these ten different arm styles. They all feature the exclusive Moon Glider front operating futon body. Totally operated from the front, they are the easiest to convert from sofa to recliner to bed and back to sofa. No heavy lifting from the side or back required to get from the bed position back to sofa position.

All Moon Glider bodies consist of the same back deck, seat deck and strecher rails so the only difference between the different models is the arms. When picking out a futon frame, I always advise customers to JUST LOOK AT THE ARMS and also not get distracted by the covers. You purchase the cover separate to match the frame color or your room decor.

Our hardwood frames are beautifully finished with automated and hand-rubbed techniques for a rich and durable finish. These well-engineered frames are primarily made from solid plantation-grown hardwood. When paired with a high quality futon mattress, they are the ultimate convertible sofa sleeper.

Frames are quick and easy to assemble and come with a limited 3-year manufacturer's warranty.

This is Kalyn relaxing at home on her loveseat lounger version of the Kingston futon frame. She keeps it in this lounger position most of the time to study, watch TV or play video games. For ocassional over night guests, the front pulls forward and the back lets down turning it into a full size bed.

All of our hardwood futon frames are available as loveseat loungers. They may cost a little bit more than the bi-fold frames, but they are pretty COOL PLACES TO SIT AND SLEEP.

Futon Loveseat Loungers
Futon Loveseat Loungers also give you the best seat in the house to watch the game and snooze on during half time!
