The Futon Essence
Space is at premium. Isn’t it? – A food for thought!
A futon is popular in Japan because, even in homes, space is at a premium. This means that many rooms are used for different tasks, at different times of the day. So, in a two or three room Japanese home, the same space can be used as a sitting room in the daytime and a bedroom at night. How is this possible? Unlike the West, where beds are popular, the Japanese use a mattress and quilt, which they spread on the mats in the room. The mattress forms the bed, on which the sleeper lies, and the quilt is thrown over the sleeper. In the daytime, both the mattress and the quilt are rolled away, and the room is used as a sitting room or a dining room.
In the West, futons have become popular as more and more people have moved out of houses and have started to live in two-room or single-room apartments instead. Furniture designers have created sofas, ottomans, and love seats that can be used for seating during the day and transformed into beds with a few discreet pulls and pushes at night. This is very useful for a single person or a young couple, who need to put up guests for the night, and do not have a spare bedroom.
Both in Japan and in the West, futon is a useful, space-saving item of furniture. However, there is one difference between Western and Japanese design. Instead of performing different tasks in the same space, as the Japanese do, the Western designer gets the furniture to do the multitasking.
