If you are looking for a traditional bed base with a contemporary twist our Classic Bed range is the perfect place to start. From the thin, elegant lines of the Cochin to the chunky, platform design of the Ocean we have a classic, solid wooden bed to fit any room and aesthetic.
To help you along in making the big decision, I’ll take you through the features of our Classic Range bed by bed, starting with my personal favourite, the Cochin…
The Cochin Bed
With its high headboard and eye-catching tapered legs, the Cochin bed base highlights both the craftsmanship of our woodworking team and the beauty of the solid timber we use. The dramatic grain and colour of our Walnut, Oak and Cherry work perfectly with this design; the prominent headboard panel and the alternating direction of the grain on the legs bring the natural beauty of the wood to the forefront. The Cochin is shown here in a traditional paneled Edwardian bedroom, but the striking design will work in a variety of settings.
The Tibet Bed
Looking for a more modern style? A perennial favourite in our showroom, the Tibet bed base with its bold, linear outline is timeless in its design. In addition to the standard pine and hardwood finishes, we offer an option for an inlay in the headboard, the exotic Zebrano timber paired with Maple (as shown in the second image above) and a strip of Walnut contrasting with Oak have proved popular in the past. As all our beds are made to order, we can combine any of the hardwood timbers we stock, just get in touch and we will provide you with a price. Another customizable element of the Tibet is the choice to add a footboard (see the first image above), simply add 15% to the standard cost.
The Ocean Bed
With its chunky legs, high headboard and platform design, the Ocean bed certainly stands out. Initially designed as a bespoke bed for a customer, we loved the design so much we added it to our range of Classic Beds. Its certainly the ideal choice if you wish to focus the wood itself, the size of the headboard and the thickness of the timber used in the legs, footboard and side rails allow the changes in tone and grain to be seen on grand scale.
The Zanskar Bed
The Zanskar bed is an ideal choice for avid readers, with its tall sloping headboard creating the perfect reclining position for curling up with a good book. As with all the beds in our Classic range, the Zanskar can accommodate under-bed storage (up to 4 drawers on double sizes and above). The sleek design of the headboard and tapered legs offer an updated twist on a traditional design.
