By placing modern futon on a frame, westerners fitted futon in furniture that acted as both a chair and a bed. Futon frames in the 21st century are made of different woods, finishes and folding mechanisms. The nice frame folds twice and the newer bumpy frame folds once. The mattress choice is important based on the type of frame. The frame can be folded by a front mechanism or a side mechanism. A nice frame gives a shorter space than a bi-fold frame.
Traditional futon was placed on a tatami mat made of rice straw, about 2 inches thick and about 2 meters wide and 6 meters long. The carpet holds a person. Modern futon mattresses are available in full, lady, king and chair / twin size and soft, medium and firm support. They are made of large mattress manufacturers like, Simmons and Gold Bond as well as others.
