The Northland Birch futon was created by mother nature herself. The birch bark logs make this futon all natural. This gives you a true sense of it's natural beauty by bringing the outdoors in! Special care is taken in harvesting each and every piece of birch log to ensure its the right size and right quality. The arms and front spreader use mortise and tenon construction, which gives it character and ensures maximum strength. The back and seat sections of the futon frame are screwed and glued together, not stapled. This allows us to put a Lifetime Warranty on the birch futon frame. All of our birch futon frames are front operated for ease of opening and closing. The birch futon has a limited availability, as the birch logs can only be harvested in the winter when the sap is down in the tree, so don't wait to order yours!
