Experience optimal comfort with a futon set
If you want to enhance your sleeping experience, a futon set can offer a perfect solution. A futon set typically consists of a shikibuton mattress and a kakebuton blanket. Traditionally this Japanese bed is placed on the floor on a tatami (floor mat), providing a firm and supportive surface for sleep. The futon bed is filled with 100% natural or organic cotton, ensuring breathability and comfort throughout the night. The kakebuton blanket covers the shikibuton mattress. It adds warmth and coziness to the mattress, making it an essential part of the futon set.
Each futon set has a unique design
When it comes to selecting a futon bed, you have a variety of options to choose from. Most of our traditional Japanese designs reflect seasons or the time of year, which you can see in the name of the different designs.
- Haru (spring)
- Aki (autumn)
- Kawa (river)
- Koi (carp fish)
- Ryu (dragon)
- Sashiko (translates as “little stabs” it’s a traditional stitching technique)
- Shinsha (cinnabar – a brownish-red mineral associated with volcanic activity and alkaline thermal springs of which there are many in Japan)
- Ume (plum flower)
- Aizanmai (indulgence)
Because of the variety there is a futon bed to suit every preference. A futon bed is designed to easily convert from a comfortable seating arrangement during the day to a cozy bed at night, making them ideal for small spaces or multi-purpose rooms.
The Futon set: mattress and blanket
A crucial element of any futon set is the futon mattress. These mattresses are designed in such a way that they give your body the perfect support during your sleep. To complete your futon set, a cozy blanket is a must-have. A soft and warm blanket not only enhances your comfort but also adds a touch of elegance to your sleeping space. Consider choosing a kakebuton blanket that complements the colors and patterns of your shikibuton mattress to create a harmonious and visually appealing atmosphere.
Investing in a Japanese futon bed can transform your bedroom into a tranquil and serene haven. The design promotes a sense of openness and simplicity, providing a calming environment for restful sleep. With a futon set you can experience the traditional sleeping style of Japan while enjoying modern comfort and convenience.
