Sure Fit Sponsors the Ugliest Futon Contest

The Futon started out as a traditional Japanese bed, which doubled as a seat and was portable enough to stow away when not in use. However, the Futon has come a long way and is no longer just in Japan. It can be found in almost any area of the everyday home, including rec rooms, kids’ playrooms, home offices, dens, and other locations where space is limited. And as any parent of a college student will tell you, nothing makes a better inexpensive addition to the dorm room than the Futon.

Unfortunately, as with any piece of furniture in a busy environment, the Futon is going to receive its fair share of spills, drips, rips, and smudges. But before you scrub your fingers to the bone trying to remove those stains or just give up and throw it out, why not cover it up?

Sure Fit, a home solutions company, has fun- and functional-coloured futon covers that cost between $39.99 and $49.99, making them an inexpensive, easy way to give that old, tired futon new life. These covers are available in a variety of colours and fabrics, including jersey knit, soft suede, woven cotton, and the recently added fleece and cotton duck materials. Plus, they’re machine washable. Check out Sure Fit’s complete line of home fashions at

Families Matter has teamed up with Sure Fit for the “Ugliest Futon Contest.” Just send us a jpeg-format picture of your ugly futon, and you could win a brand-new Sure Fit Futon cover of your choice.

Contest runs from September 13th to the 27th.
Send your Ugly Futon picture, name, and email address to:

Good Luck!
