O Futon, you are the light of my nights.
Futon, I have only had you for a year and a half.
I cannot take you with me.
It breaks my heart, O Futon, that you and I
This futon, in case you haven't yet guessed, is the best thing about my life in DC (with the exception of my wonderful boyfriend, who reads me bedtime stories on it). It's 8" thick, made of foam core (so it doesn't pack down -- I explicitly asked about that when I got it, for $300 for the mattress alone, from Z Furniture on P Street last year), and is the best thing I've ever slept on (again, with the possible exception of my boyfriend).
The frame is also perfect -- it's a gorgeous futon frame I bought new a year and a half ago for $200, and folds into a couch (though really, the mattress is so thick that it takes two people (well, at least two people my size) to fold it up). It's of dark wood, and looks great, assembles and disassembles into easily moveable pieces, and is really sturdy.
I WISH I could take these to California with me when I move on Wednesday! But unfortunately, it would cost more to ship than it would to re-buy.
PLEASE COME HELP ME OUT, AND BUY MY AMAZING FUTON!
I'm asking $300, OBO. This is a really, really good price -- as I said, I paid $500 for the whole assembly new, only 1.5 years ago, and it's worth its weight in gold. Just think about it -- you spend 1/3 - 1/4 of your life on your bed, so you may as well invest in it!
That said, it really, really has to go NOW, so I'm open to offers. But $300 is a great price.
