Changing futon frame into a couch?
I want to change our nice solid ash Mission style futon frame into a more traditional couch. Comfortable enough for company to sit on, but won't get heavy use. I've found a place that will make couch cushions to any size and shape, so that'll work.
Here's the problem: I just noticed that a futon frame's seat slants down in the back, lowering your seat and elevating your knees. Then its back leans back too far, so you're looking up rather than level with the floor. Don't think I can solve that problem by manipulating the cushions.
Any ideas on how we could alter that frame to make it sit more upright, like a traditional sofa?
