Despite everyone's LOVING the memory foam mattresses, I am a futon man and always have been, but i can't find a good one here in the city. Out in San Francisco I knew the places to get really good, quality, handmade futons. Where can a FUTON MAN get a good futon in Gotham City?

We, too, have a friend in the Bay Area who swears by his authentic Japanese futons (2 layers) on top of a simple rice mat platform, but we haven't seen that here. Of course, there is the Futon Ghetto along Broadway, but you want something better. This is what we dug up as places to start and we hope that readers help out.
All of these are online, but shipping a futon shouldn't be a big deal. As for places in the city where you could lie on one... You could ask Miya Shoji Interiors on 17th street. Miya is a great Japanese furniture designer and showroom and they may have references.
