Moonshadow Futon Mattress Details

The Moonshadow futon mattress offers you a luxurious, medium soft cushiony feel that delivers the best of both worlds in sitting and sleeping comfort. It is the quintessential favorite futon mattress that nearly everyone who tries and buys loves. The Moonshadow's reputation stems directly from the premium contents used in its construction that form the ultimate balance in luxurious comfort at an affordable price, especially when you consider its near eternal lifespan as a futon mattress.

The Moonshadow futon's innovative mixture combines convoluted and premium sheet foams to make a medium soft, supportive mattress providing a plusher sofa experience without compromising the that dreamy and luxurious sleeping environment we all seek. The net result is a futon mattress that acts like no other and responds best to the compromise often missed by other futon mattresses serving as both a bed and a sofa. Its properties continue to make the Moonshadow futon mattress a customer favorite.

The secret to the Moonshadow futon mattress is its perfect combination of high-density and convoluted foams. Its convoluted foam disperses weight and increases in firmness as it is compressed from point to valley. The Moonshadow's innovative design offers you all the support of a high-end sleep mattress making every night restful and rejuvenating. Discover the sweet spot between firm and soft, sitting and sleeping, by joining thousands who have already made the great choice of owning the Moonshadow futon mattress.

While the Moonshadow may be listed as a medium-soft futon mattress, this assignment is somewhat misleading. The first point you must be aware of when buying a futon mattress is that the scale is somewhat skewed from peoples' normal perception of what is firm and what is soft. This is because futon mattresses are traditionally firm so when a futon mattress is listed as medium-soft, it my be perceived by consumers to be more of a medium than a soft. However, as a sofa, the Moonshadow has the cushion-like feel of a premium high-end sofa that has a Dacron™ wrap. Unlike most futons, the Moonshadow will give and offer a luxurious sofa-cushion-like feeling. When you lie down, however, you are actually redistributing your weight over a greater area, thus your weight per square inch is reduced. The net affect is that your downward pressure per square inch puts less pressure on the mattress creating a firmer feeling that is more supportive for nightly sleeping comfort. While one or another futon mattress might perform fine for sitting or alternatively sleeping, few perform as well as the Moonshadow in both stages. This is where the Moonshadow shines and the primary reason for its popularity.

As a result, the Moonshadow futon mattress is one of our staff picks and one we openly recommend to consumers seeking the best at an affordable price. The investment in the Moonshadow is nominal when you consider its lifespan. When other futon mattresses begin to degrade of months of constant use, the Moonshadow continues to hold its shape and offers dreamy support year-after-year. Its warranty lasts a decade which is anywhere from two-ten times longer than other futon mattresses on the market. Even after ten years, we have seen Moonshadow mattresses that are still ticking strong which is why we believe the Moonshadow is America's best buy futon mattress.

Because of its special properties, gripper strips are a must with the Otis Bed Moonshadow futon mattress, so we highly recommend the purchase of grippers. Gripper strips offer the unique friction needed to hold your Moonshadow in its sofa-position and they have an adhesive backing to ensure they stay put on your futon frame, and for these reasons, they are the only non-slip material we have found that will positively secure your Moonshadow futon mattress in place. Whichever Otis brand futon mattress you select, the Moonshadow or otherwise, the use of gripper strips is always highly recommended.

    More About Split Format Futons

    Split mattress formats are made up of two Moonshadow futon mattresses that are then snugged together to equal their full length complements. A Full size futon mattress is made by combining a Loveseat and Loveseat Ottoman. A Twin size is made with a Twin Chair and Twin Chair Ottoman and the Cot size is attained by scooting a Chair sized futon combines against a Chair Ottoman size.

    The cot is pretty narrow and is not recommended for extended stays and is more suitable for children. Speaking of children, various split sizes can be used individually to offer miniature sized mattress for miniature sized people. So, you don't have to buy a counterpart to the split format concept if you don't want to. We're pretty flexible that way. silly fragg

    Incidentally, the term "ottoman" is used because each segment was originally offered as a footstool section. Today, however, only the chair size has a footstool foundation for its respective mattress, while the other ottoman sizes (the loveseat & twin) are rarely available with an ottoman foundation. Instead, they are either propped up to serve as the back portion of a lounger, or they are stowed elsewhere until they use is required for sleeping. In the latter case, the futon frames that accomadate those sizes is converted into a loveseat or oversized chair (in the case of the twin 39 inch width).

    One frequently asked question about the split format, is whehter the gap can be perceived between the two separate cushions. The best recommendation to avoid feeling the split, is to place the larger split mattress so that it supports the head and torso of your guest, while the smaller split segment supports the calf and foot. When they are secured with the use of non-slip or Gripper Strips, the guest should not notice the difference between a complete futon mattress or the split. One additional thought, is to purchase a complete cover for the split. In the case of the loveseat split format, for example, a Full Size Futon Cover could be employed to encompass both mattresses. This will zip complete around the loveseat futon and loveseat ottoman to hold keep them well intact. When the futon is no longer needed for your guest, simply remove the ottoman cushion, keeping the larger segment inside and zipping it shut. Then, fold the mattress back into position, dog-ear and then military tucking the excess fabric behind the back.

    Have Questions? That's why we're here. So pick up the phone and call, us! We're more than happy to explain the process to help you determine if a Moonshadow futon mattress split format is right for you. By the way, some futon mattress are thin enough to cascade over the back should you need a mattress for a loveseat or twin chair. In this case, you are forgoing a level of comfort, but saving money and removing a layer of complexity in the process. You might want to ask us about that as well, if you are considering a split format mattress for a loveseat or twin size futon.silly fragg

Futon Planet Brand Mattress Shipping FAQ's

  • Q: Why can't in-store Futon Planet Brand futons ship from the store? — Unlike our Otis brand futon mattresses which ship to us from Otis in vacuum packed packages, the mattresses we offer in-store customers under our own label are not vacuum packed or ready to ship. This service is only provided to our on-line customers who purchase Futon Planet brand mattresses and must be fulfilled at the factory.
  • Q: Why do custom mattress take longer? — It's not always, the case, but frequently custom made futon mattresses require more attention to detail than the higher production runs of our standard spec futon mattresses. For this reason, a seemstress will attend to custom orders after a major production run once the dust settles. If you are in a hurry, call us to see about a RUSH PRODUCTION order and an additional Fast Trac option.
  • Q: Why must I open my futon mattress the day it arrives — Two reasons. One reason is that you want to allow it to begin to expand to its intended loft as quickly as possible. With cotton-filled mattresses, this means it can a little time to expand and the longer it stays compressed the less likely it will expand to its intended loft. Also, as with all our products, we like customers to open their products and inspect them for potential shipping damages. We rarely, we mean very rarely, receive calls from customers regarding futon mattress damages, but it can happen. Notifying us immediately enables us to seek a freight claim while quickly attending your needs regarding a replacement. Please note any damages must be identified with the use of digital images and need to be emailed to us promptly so we can service your claim.
  • Q:How will my Moonshadow futon mattress be packaged? — Futon Planet brand futon mattresses ship to you in a vacuum packed package with a near-bullet proof mesh that helps ensure it is well protected from potential shipping damages. When it arrives, you will carefully unpack it and watch it grow, much like a giant grow worm. Be sure to stand back. Just kidding! They expand slowly, taking several business days to recover. They don't expand on weekends..silly fragg

This futon mattress is just fabulous. I never could have imagined it would be so comfortable. Great recommendation Adrien! Thanks!

This product arrived quickly and...
This product arrived quickly and upon opening the box the mattress popped to full size in a matter of minutes. The product did not smell and appears to be of very high quality. I called customer service for help picking the perfect mattress for me, they were nice, very helpful, and spot on what I wanted! I would not hesitate to call for help again.

Super Comfortable
This futon mattress came highly recommended. After owning it for a month now, I had to come back and report on it:

1. It's thick and sits better than our old futon
2. You have to buy covers that have the extra height option to fit it
3. It has an edging on it that is made of extra material that goes over the seams
4. Grippers keep it in place, but you have to stick them permanently on your frame
5. It is so comfortable as a sleeper. I let my mom use my bed and I slept great
6. It's about $100-$200 more than their other mattresses
7. It seems like it will last way longer than my last one
8. It shows no signs of getting lumpy or irregular like my old one day after a few months

After having it this long and having been a futon owner for more than a decade, now, I have to say this mattress is one I would recommend to anyone.

Moonshadow, Moonshadow!!
I did a lot of research on the web before making my decision. I bought this with a frame that I really like that I will probably write a review about as well, but it's the mattress that really shines.

It's cushiony when you sit on it, but when you lie on it, the mattress actually firms up. Something about weight distribution when you lie down. Anyhow it works. The edges are very square and it just looks like a high end futon.

One thing, though. You can't just buy any old futon cover for it. You have to buy the covers that can accommodate a thicker mattress.

I shopped several other online retailers, but I like the way the woman on the phone really took the time with me. She said she owns the same one and this one isn't even their most expensive. I'm sure they get a discount.

Love it!

High Marks
I had to recommend one purchase this year, it would be this mattress. It's extremely well made and very comfortable.

It's hard to believe they squished it in that little box (not that was that little). But sure enough, just as the lady on the phone told me it would, it expanded right out and now I am wondering why I paid so much for my high posturepedic bedroom mattress. This mattress is delightfully comfy!

our 3rd mattress we have purchased for our futon and is by far the best
We love this new Moonshadow Futon Mattress. This is our 3rd mattress we have purchased for our futon and is by far the best. We use ours mainly in the upright sofa position for sitting. It is very comfortable and does not loose it’s shape like the others have in the past. It is much thicker and very soft but, firm and supportive. I would highly recommend this mattress.


04/11/2014 - 05:45:26 PM
The mattress is also cozy and comfortable to lounge on
Even though we bought the futon to provide extra sleeping accommodations for when we have guests, we slept on our mattress the first night after assembling the futon. It was just as comfortable as our usual bed and we are looking forward to having guests try it out. The mattress is also cozy and comfortable to lounge on in the sitting position.

I highly recommend the Moonshadow for quality and comfort
I ordered the Moonshadow Futon Mattress because of the reviews.

02/05/2014 - 12:11:40 PM
Excellent value for the price!
Excellent value for the price! We’ve only had it a short time but are very satisfied. We use it primarily as a sofa.

Very comfortable and love the true squared edges. We were looking to purchase a 10” futon but feel we got what we wanted with the “true” 8 inches advertised. Shipping was timely, within a week of purchase and surprised how quickly the futon expanded from such small packaging.

Adrian was particularly helpful on the phone when I called with questions about the product and shipping. I would gladly suggest the futon and the service from Futon Planet to my friends.

01/11/2013 - 04:46:59 PM
Love it!
The best futon mattress you can buy. I'm sure of it. I've had it for a little over two weeks and I just love it. I never write write-ups about anything, hardly, but I think it's my duty to share the news.

Came three days after I ordered it.


01/05/2014 - 02:30:48 PM
Very Happy with the product!
Very Happy with the product! So comfortable and fast shipping!
