Top 10 Best King S Futons
for December 2022

MOOZ's editors independently choose recommendations. Purchases made through our links may earn us commissions.

With a futon, you can transform any room into a guest room, an office or a bedroom. Even though futons have a long history of use in Asia and Europe, they're making a resurgence in America thanks to their versatility.

Futons consist of a large mattress that can be folded and used as a couch or chair. They come in different styles, including traditional, open coil, memory coil and innerspring.

We test futons in the MOOZ Reviews Lab for performance, ear, and ease of use. Our consumer testers put each futon to the test in their own homes, rating the comfort, durability and ease of assembly. Our tech experts test each futon for durability, stability and ease of use. Here are our picks for top 10 best king-size futons:

Novogratz Tallulah Memory Foam Futon, Gray Velvet

Novogratz Tallulah Memory Foam Futon

by Dorel Home Products

Made on a sturdy wood frame with filling made of high-density foam and memory foam for ultimate comfort

The Novogratz Tallulah is a refined, solid, comfortable sleeper. It's elegant, with extra padding and tufted backrest. It's sturdy, with a frame of solid wood. It sleeps well, with lots of room, and it's comfortable, with a plush mattress. It has flexible, adjustable positions (the base can be raised or lowered, and the backrest can be folded down), and it's sturdy enough to stand up to adult-sized people. The only drawback is the price, which, at $1,595 plus shipping, is steep for a modestly sized sofa.

8 inch Cotton Fiber Futon (King)

BIO SLEEP CONCEPT 8 Cotton inch Fiber Futon (King)

by Bio Sleep Concept

All Fiber futons perfectly regulate airflow as you sleep helping you sleep comfortably regardless of the ambient temperature and help relieve pressure points along your neck, shoulders, back, and hips.

This futon is amazingly comfy, and it does a great job of muffling sound. Its only downside is size, since it is slightly too small for queen beds, but it'll fit under regular full-size beds just fine. At 8 inches thick, it's a bit thicker than the average American futon, and the cotton cover feels thicker and sturdier than many other futon covers. It's a good option if you're in the market for a solid, sturdy, comfortable futon at a reasonable price.

DHP Ivana Tufted Futon, Grey Velvet

DHP Ivana Tufted Futon

by DHP

Multi-functional piece ideal for small living spaces. Split Back design that allows to change to multiple positions: sitting, lounging and sleeping

To find a futon that looks and feels as nice as this, you have to shop online. The DHP Ivana tufted futon is one of the few beds we found in a showroom that looked as stunning in person as it did online. It's comfortable, incredibly well-built, and folds into a compact package that can easily fit in a dorm room or apartment. The tufted back makes this futon feel much more expensive than it is, and it's one of the sturdiest mattresses we've ever tested.

Classic Brands Mornington Upholstered Platform Bed | Headboard and Metal Frame with Wood Slat Support, King, Linen

Classic Brands Mornington Platform Upholstered Bed

by Decoro

Trendy modern design, this upholstered platform headboard and bed frame is the perfect solution for updating the look of your bedroom

The Classic Brands Mornington Upholstered Platform Bed is an attractive, well-made bed frame that works well as a bedroom centerpiece. It displays clean lines, and the upholstered headboard provides plenty of support. The slats are sturdy and compatible with a variety of different mattress thicknesses (you simply choose the height of the mattress you want). The headboard can be flipped upside down to add more storage under the bed. The headboard and footboard can be separated and stacked in storage, and the headboard can also be removed for more room in a storage closet. It comes in an attractive linen finish, and it even includes a set of color-matching wooden slats; meanwhile, the bed can be assembled without tools. The only drawback is that it's not compatible with adjustable bed bases, and we think most people shopping for a new bed frame are shopping for a bed that works with an adjustable base.

DHP Janford Upholstered Bed with Chic Design | King | Grey Linen

DHP Janford Upholstered Bed Chic with Design

by DHP

If you are looking for a statement piece that will not overwhelm your bedroom dcor, the Janford Upholstered Bed is the perfect solution for a focal point of your bedroom that is both trendy and simple

We like the Janford Upholstered Bed for its elegant, simple design and brand name connections. We like the headboard's chic design and simple lines, but not everyone will appreciate its $1,000-plus price tag. The Janford Upholstered Bed is a solid choice when you're looking for an entry-level luxury bed, but we just wish it had a memory foam or latex mattress like the similarly priced Janford Plush bed. At $1,000, the Janford Upholstered Bed is also more expensive than most of the other beds in our roundup, and that limits the number of potential purchasers. If you're looking for the cheapest bed in our roundup, check out the DHP Simple Joy Upholstered Bed Frame, which is available for less than $300.

Divano Roma Furniture Collection Modern Plush Tufted Linen Fabric Splitback Living Room Sleeper Futon (Light Grey)

Divano Roma Furniture Collection Modern Plush Tufted Linen Splitback Fabric Living Room Sleeper Futon (Light Grey)

by Homegoods Mania

Modern split-back sleeper futon in fun colors - perfect for a bonus room, office or apartment to give your space a pop of color

The Divano Roma Furniture Collection Modern Plush Tufted Linen Fabric Splitback Living Room Sleeper Futon (Light Grey) is a sleeper sofa that functions both as a sofa and a bed. The sofa sits low to the ground, making it perfect for a reading nook or place to sit next to a smaller person. Our biggest gripe is the split back, which feels flimsy, especially for the price. The cushions are firm, and the sofa also feels a little thin. In addition, the appliance runs a little loud when sitting or resting in the couch position.

DHP Adley Small Space Modern Convertible Sofa Bed, Light Gray Linen Futon

DHP Adley Small Space Convertible Modern Sofa Bed

by DHP

Modern and simple, this futon is upholstered in rich linen and features button-tufting details on the backrest and the seating.

The DHP Adley sofa sleeper is remarkably easy to convert, a feat that eluded the Brooklyn sofa bed we tested at the same time. A push or pull in the back raises and lowers the back part, while a small lever on the side lets you flip out the chaise, which pulls out to a bed or waits in the closet. The back cushions are plush, and the chaise feels sturdy with a wide, flat cushion. The cushions have simple patterns, but the fabrics are removable, making them easy to clean. The back of the seat cushion is flattened out for comfort, but we found that we preferred to sit upright without leaning forward. Two pillows come with the chaise, but the sofa also has its own built-in lumbar pillow. It folds up with ease, and a little tug allows it to pivot out along the floorboard, which makes storage easier. The back of the arm rest can support a standing person, but we found our shoulders didn't fit between the arm rail and the chaise cushion. The controls are on the armrest, and we found them to be simple, intuitive and well-thought-out. The release for the chaise and back are hidden underneath, so you can enhance the simple look of the sofa by tucking them away. The feet can be adjusted, and we found them to be sturdy, but we found little-to-no floor indentations in our test area. Some users found the slats for the chaise to be too thin, but we found they were sturdy enough to support even chubby bellies. The DHP Adley sofa sleeper is not as firm as a normal futon, but it does bounce back with some effort. It's comfortable enough for casual couch surfing, but it's more sturdy and sturdy enough for occasional sleep.

Novogratz Leyla Loveseat, Multifunctional and Modern Design, Adjustable Armrests to Create a Couch Sleeper -Grey

Novogratz Leyla Loveseat

by Dorel Industries

LOVESEAT TO SLEEPER | With its multifunctional and innovative design, the armrests fold down to create the perfect couch sleeper. Go from loveseat to sleeper in seconds!

The Novogratz Leyla Loveseat is a versatile piece that's great for small spaces. It's comfortable enough for a movie marathon, and it's big enough to accommodate several people. The adjustable arm rests make it so you can create a comfortable sleeping position, or you can use it as extra seating. Each side of the loveseat has a magazine pocket, which doubles as a storage tray for a tray table if you need extra surface area to spread out while reading or watching TV. Unfortunately, the loveseat's faux leather upholstery looks cheap up close, and it's not the most attractive piece of furniture, but at $300, it's an incredibly affordable addition.

Milliard Sectional Mattress - Configure as King, 2 Twins or 3 Cots (King)

Milliard Sectional Mattress

by Milliard

Portable - This mattress folds easily for travel or storage and is perfect for small apartments and tight spaces.

This cool new adjustable sectional sofa bed from Milliard is easy to set up and use, and it comes in a bunch of configurations and sizes. You can either build the bed as a king-size bed, two twin size beds, or three collapsible and reversible cots. And you can have all three panels open, or closed to create a large sectional sofa. There's also a center panel that can be removed when you need it, or kept in place when you need more storage (like when you're putting away pillows and sheets). All of the mattresses are 4 inches thick, and they're filled with CertiPUR-US-certified, hypoallergenic foam. There's also a 2-inch firm support layer for a firmer, more supportive feel. The mattresses are easy to clean, and they can be washed in the washing machine. The frame is easy to assemble, and it's made of powder-coated metal in a neutral grey finish, so it will match most decor styles. The collapsible frame can also be set up in multiple configurations, like an L shape or a 90-degree angle.
