Hi, I'm Japh Komassa, founder of Great Lakes Futon in Milwaukee, Wi 30+ years ago. We no longer have a retail establishment here in milwaukee, but please shop our online store using the menu on the left.

Great Lakes Futon made and shipped futons all over North America during that period. The "crane & turtle" symbolize good luck and longevity, that has created 30+ years of futon history to offer the finest selections of futon home furnishings. Dependable and durable futon furniture. Handmade futons using california and texas grown cotton, post-consumer recycled polyester fibers, and high density foam all combine to make extremely resilient and comfortable futons. Our accessories offer beautifull futon covers and pillows. tatami mats for flooring, zafus and zabutons for meditation, and most recently Architectural Sculptures from my travels in Europe with my friend Duro.

"I have had the tatami bed for about  two weeks, it is awesome! The buying experience was perfect from order, communication, delivery, and quality. Just wanted you to know that I am a very satisfied customer. Other e-commerce companies should use you as an example. Great product, great price, and excellent communication. That's the way to do it, I wish you much success in the future. Thank you!" — Bruce

"The frame arrived Friday night via UPS I put it together in about a 1/2 hour . It was fun and easy.. slept really well last night on my new bed
Thanks for the good customer service...." — Steph

I do a lot of Internet shopping, spending considerable time each year in far flung places where normal retail opportunities are limited. Seldom have I had such a successful (and rewarding!) experience, however, as I did with Crane and Turtle.

My wife and I wanted to find for ourselves a very particular tatami bed which we had had the pleasure of sleeping on in a friend's apartment in Paris. After considerable searching of many potential web sites, it looked as though Crane and Turtle might have something similar -- whereupon there started a long and fruitful correspondence between the two of us regarding dimensions, floor clearance, wood stain colors, shipping venues, delivery dates, under-bed storage drawers, and more. At every juncture you went out of your way to provide answers, locate inventory from diverse suppliers, and arrange for delivery of EXACTLY what we had been hoping to find.

The quality and comfort of the bed is outstanding. But what stands out in my mind is the extraordinary customer service that you provided. In a word, "Bravo."— Dean

"We love it and it's perfect! thank you, it was worth the wait!" — Susan
