Futon mattresses have come along way and there’s nothing better than to sit and sleep on a comfortable mattress. The feather touch futon mattress by Gold Bond is a fat 8” inches thick with thin layers of high density convoluted foam. The reason for the thin layers is to give it a softer lighter feel than firm block foam. This mattress is light and is more comfortable than a sofa cushion. The feather touch futon mattress is comfortable and durable for everyday sitting as a sofa and occasional bed. It contains just about an inch of cotton wrapped around the thin layers of foam for an added plush surface. The mattress bends easily and sits nicely on any futon frame.
