I have two Atherton futons, one for each of my sons. They like them very much. My oldest has a chocolate one and my youngest has a black one. They are nice and roomy, easy to arrange, and look pretty good. I will admit that they might be a bit firm for some people. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It already has the mattress as part of the futon. You can't take the mattress off but you can put a sheet or pretty cover on it. It comes up at the sides making it comfortable for lounging at the television. It's very solid!
