So after college I got my own place but couldn't afford a couch so I got a futon. It was great because it had a dual purpose - it could be used as a couch or a bed if anyone stayed over. Now they make furon covers to put over your futon to change your decor and create a whole new space. Furton covers let you add color to your apartment when the lanlord won't let you paint the walls or when you just need a change of scenery. Futon covers also let you change the whole dynamic of your room with a different design or color without having to buy a new futon.
Domestic Bin carries solid colors as well as patterns in their futon covers.
