Anyone who’s hunted for sofas knows that finding one that’s budget friendly and perfect for your space takes time — especially if you’re shopping for a first apartment or a college dorm room. As a family of 9 that needs plenty of space for all of us to hang out and lounge, as well as for kids’ friends to sleep when they stay over, we recognized the need for stylish futons that are affordable.

Futons have come a long way. We’re so excited about these options that we’ve created mood boards to help you pick a futon based on your personality. We paired each style with a few great products to show you how we’d use the futon in a space. Happy shopping.

The Old Soul: Like us, you love nothing more than to hunt for antiques on the weekends. You effortlessly mix old pieces with new to give your home an eclectic, one of a kind feel.

The Fashionista: You’re the best dressed at every party, and your home is no exception. You opt for ornate (but never gaudy) and mix in sleek, elemental pieces for balance. Rich, saturated hues and funky patterns keep your space from feeling too delicate or formal.
