My Experience with DormCo
DormCo’s Full-sized Red Collegiate Futon is a college dorm room staple.
Although I no longer go to college or live in dorm, I fondly remember my college days and along with them, one of my favorite and most useful pieces of furniture, the futon!
While searching for a versatile piece of furniture for our home office/guest room, I knew that I wanted something that would work for everyday seating and also for overnight guests.
A futon is the first thing that came to mind.
The Red Collegiate Futon from DormCo has a thick oxford fabric exterior that is designed for durability and wear resistance.
You can use your futon for everyday seating, or scoot it out from the wall and fold it into a bed. It is easy to scrub down if you should spill something on it.
Since spills are just as common in our house with two kids, as they would be in a college dorm room, “easy to clean” is a must!
I love the red color of the futon. Our office/guest room is blue and the red gives the room a great pop of color.
The futon came in one piece in a large box. The only assembly required was to screw on the legs, which were stored in a small compartment underneath the futon (see below).
Unfortunately, the compartment that the legs were located in under the futon left a little bit to be desired.
The fabric inside the compartment was ripped and several staples had come loose from the Velcro holding it shut.
Considering it’s not something I’ll ever use again, and can’t be seen at all, it’s a pretty minor issue.
The legs were sturdy and easy to install.
One of the most appealing things to me about this futon is the price. At under $200, it’s very affordable.
Even better, DormCo offers shipping for just $2.95 shipping on your entire order within the continental USA (with no minimum!). Plus, your order ships in less than 24 hours.
Seriously, that’s not a typo. I shop online a lot and $2.95 shipping with no minimum order is hard to come by. And on dorm room furniture? That’s huge!
Here are a few other items from DormCo that would be perfect for any college dorm room:
