Meet The Team


At Cambridge Futons we have been handcrafting futon mattresses for over 30 years.

Rebecca and I took over Cambridge futons in January 22. I had worked for the previous owner and founder, Mark for nearly 10 years as production manager. When Mark and Liz decided it was time to retire we had a chat about us taking over and the rest, as they say, is history!

With a young family, we couldn’t think of a better time to take the leap and help to grow this amazing small business which remains committed to bringing the very best and healthiest futon mattresses to the industry.

Our small, skilled and dedicated team of local craftspeople remain in place to help you achieve a blissfully comfortable and worry free experience.

Based in Woodbury, Devon (I know, the company name is confusing)! Our factory sits between the estuary and the sea and is ready to make luxury, artisan futon mattresses to fit any need.

But why Futon mattresses I hear you ask? Well, they are comfortable, supportive, space saving and great value for money. So perhaps I should be asking you, why not futons?

We have worked tirelessly over the years to hone our craft and now find ourselves in the wonderful position of being able to offer a range of fillings and comfort that we know our customers love. Whether you need a single seater or a three seater, a trifold or a bifold. We will have the futon mattress for you.

Need something more bespoke, maybe something comfortable for your camper van, no problem just give us a call and our resident futon expert, Jessica will come up with a plan!

We have a range of fabrics, so no matter your taste we can make the perfect futon mattress for your space.

We work with natural fillings, including British Wool, cosy Cotton and supportive Coir fibre (made from actual Coconut husks) with not a chemical in sight. Even our manmade polyester fibres are completely chemical free and recyclable.

If chemical free is important to you check out our Wool Flax, Carrera Cotton or our patented Cottonsafe fabric ranges, these are all completely Fire Retardant Chemical free.

Please give us a call or drop us an email to discuss your project.


Jamie & Rebecca

  • Ian - Artisan Craftsman

    One of our master craftspeople, he's the king of cutting. With an impeccable eye for detail, Ian specialises in measuring and cutting the fabrics and fillings for every futon and Futomat we make.

    Father of two, Ian is keen on crafting in his spare time too - when he's not on the beach with his family you'll find him modelling with Lego or turning his hand to his newest skill, knitting.

    We asked Ian what he most enjoyed about working at Cambridge Futons, and in his own words - "I really enjoy working in the family atmosphere, the team all get on well, it's a friendly environment - I love the variety in my role and having the opportunity to learn new skills, we've got some big plans for 2023 in the production team and I'm really excited to be part of it".

    When we say hand-made we really do mean it, we pride ourselves on the quality and attention to detail that goes into everything we make, and with skilled craftspeople like Ian we can offer an excellent made to measure service. Need a futon mattress for an odd sized bed? You're in good hands with Ian, our reputation for making the most comfortable natural futon mattresses starts with him.

  • Jessica - Administration & Customer Services Manager

    Jess is our right hand woman in the office - although if we're honest, she's probably in charge!

    Jess has been with Cambridge Futons for over 13 years, she's our tour de force in the complicated world of futons and would choose the topic of fire retardant chemical toxicity as her mastermind topic.

    Jess is the first voice you'll hear when you call us for advice, but when she's not busy dealing with your enquiries you'll find her stuffing pillows, packaging orders, fixing the embroidery machine and sometimes catching up her favourite hobby - sewing.

  • Richard - Artisan Craftsman

    The newest member of our team (although he’s been here quite a long time now), Richard bought with him a wealth of knowledge from his background in maintenance and construction.


    Richard makes the art of Futon making look easy. Always able to think outside the box, Rich is perfectly placed with the skills needed to make a Futon perfect for your needs.

    Richard is kept very busy in his spare time too – a keen DIY enthusiast, when he’s not re upholstering a chair or building an extension he can be found
    playing Lego with his 3 children or strolling through the grounds of a National Trust property. It’s not all good news – he supports Man Utd. No one’s perfect.
