Questions & Answers for Mainstays Mainstays Contempo Futon Sofa Bed, Multiple Colors

Question

In seating position, With both arms up, what is the length?

I know the back stays the same, which isn't a problem, But I have a radiator a little further out from the wall, and depending on the length, it may fit as the arms would be raised above the radiator. So whats the length from arm upward, to the other arm upward?
Thanks

Take about 5 inches off of the total length from arm to arm. BUT, please note that the back of the futon is still the same length after raising both arms. There are different angles at which the arms can incline, too.

Not at all. The support system of this furniture isn't like the 'old' futons with the mesh-style backing. It's a steel grid that has built-in center support, backed up with a center bar that connects the two halves of the sofa. It's very, very sturdy.

answer 6
It doesn't need any added support. There is an aluminum frame with crossbars under the seat cushions. There are two of those crossbars a few inches apart down the middle, then another crossbar between those middle crossbars and end of frame crossbar. Hopefully you can picture what I'm saying. My teenage daughter and friends use the futon all the time. They love it and find it very comfortable. Since it's in the "game" room I haven't really sat on it much but for the few times I have it was comfortable to me too.

You can adjust the seat part so that it rises into arms. So when the "arms" are up, you lose some seating space

The outer end of each side of the bottom seat will adjust so there are arms, of course it reduces the bottom seat length when the "arms" are up.
