Hidden in this three-story wooden building, in the shadow of Route 93, is a family business that turns out high-quality futon mattresses at factory-direct prices. You can save $50 or more over department stores, with a variety of sizes and styles to choose from frames are sold at discount too, though they are not made here.
The basic twin-size futon set goes for $209, including the mattress, trifold pine frame, pillows, covers, and delivery in the Boston area. Frames are also available in birch and maple. There are also bargains on floor models and irregulars, like a queen-size futon mattress for $109, or futon covers at half-price. The folks here are friendly and offer great service; custom orders can be made up and delivered by the next day. Open seven days, including Thursdays through Saturdays until 9 PM.
