Many of the futon frames available from KD Frames are mistakenly referred to as pine by some customers. But in actuality, it is a poplar hardwood.
KD Frames only uses kiln-dried, tulip poplar hardwood grown in the Southern Appalachian mountains. This is one of the strongest hardwoods available and is perfect for use on futon frames.
These tulip poplar trees are grown on sustainable plantations with eco-friendly efforts in mind. This is beneficial for not only the environment, but also the economy. Since the wood is grown, transported, and cut in America, the American economy benefits the most. Because of the close proximity of the resources and their final product, many of these frames are some of the most affordable futon frames available anywhere.
Because the resources to make these futon frames are here in American, the potential for backorders and running out of inventory increases. Also, shipping generally happens much faster. KD Frames generally ships out their products much faster than other manufacturers, typically between 1 and 2 business days.
KD Frames also ships their futon frames via UPS, and are much easier to assemble and operate. Many of these frames also feature multiple lounge positions, not just sofa and bed positions.
Futons Etc. is extremely proud of providing the quality work and craftsmanship of KD Frames in our online catalog. Their affordability, ease of use, simple assembly, and their low-profile have made these futon frames.
