At Natural Bed Company we make a wide range of solid wood beds – from simple, minimalist futon bases and modern, low platform beds to luxurious four posters and elaborate wooden bed bases with upholstered headboards. In this blog we’ll take a look at our luxury solid wood beds that have maximum impact – perfect for a spacious master bedroom.
Four Poster Beds
Our four poster beds are the ultimate in luxury – after all a four poster can’t fail to impress! Your choice of design depends on the size of your bedroom and the look you want to create.
If your style is a little bohemian or you are the type to collect artefacts from travels to far flung places – then the Raj bed is the perfect four poster for you. This colonial style 4 poster incorporates design motifs inspired by India but with a bold, simple shape to suit western lifestyles. Add one of our Zari duvet covers, or quilts, in jewel like colours (teal, amethyst or ebony) to compete the look.
The Orchid 4-poster is a classic design that can suit a traditional bedroom style or a contemporary look. This versatile bed is a great choice if you like to redecorate and change your style every couple of years – the Orchid will look great with any interior design scheme.
If you prefer modern simplicity take a look at the Oasis or Cube four-posters. The Cube has a low sleeping platform with tall, slender posts – a contemporary loft-style is generally preferred by those ordering a Cube bed. Add a pair of low Cube bedside tables for maximum impact – these useful bedside tables have a handy storage drawer and shelf – so they also help keep your master bedroom a stylish (and tidy!) haven. The Oasis is a clever design – perfect if you want to maximise space – it does’t have upper side rails connecting the posts and so will keep the space feeling light and airy while still having the height and impact of a traditional 4-poster.
We currently offer two solid wood bed bases with upholstered headboard panels – they are very different in style but both add a luxurious and cosy feel to any bedroom. With upholstered headboards you can find a fabric to tone with the rest of your scheme – or even use a matching fabric to that chosen for curtains, cushions or even to cover the walls! (If you want us to use your own fabric – please note it should be upholstery grade and meet fire retardancy regulations. Contact us for more information.)
The Arran Bed is a neat design – it doesn’t have a very large foot print – but with a tall buttoned and upholstered headboard it still has the wow factor. The Arran bed is shown above with a beautiful solid walnut base, upholstered in ‘Tailor’ fabric in the colour – Wolf.
The Shetland bed has a deep frame constructed using wide, but slender sections of solid timber which give a refined and elegant appearance with a strong, solid construction. The upholstered headboard is deeply padded and offers a cosy, supportive back-rest for reading in bed.
Chunky Solid Wood Beds
An impressive bed is the ideal focus for a large master bedroom and is a great way to alter your sense of the space – a wide, low bed will disguise a lower ceiling height and so suits an attic bedroom, while a four poster needn’t take up much floor space, but the height gives impact by using space that can’t be used for anything else.
We offer a number of chunky solid wood beds – from the Kulu and Oregon low, wide platform beds, to the Ocean and Tibet beds which use thick timber sections for a bold, timeless look.
The Oregon is our widest platform bed – with a deep frame and (optional) modern low bedside tables – the Oregon is a real show stopper. A lot of timber is used to make an Oregon bed, but with it’s pared-down, geometric design this contemporary classic will last for decades both in style terms and construction (all our solid wood beds come with a 12year structural guarantee.) The Kulu platform bed is the perfect choice if you like this style, but have a little less floor space available.
The Tibet bed is the most under-stated design in this blog, it’s the tall, solid-wood headboard and thick section timber frame that gives this bed a luxury feel. Whether in solid oak, cherry, maple or walnut – this simple design highlights the beauty and diversity of natural solid wood.
The Ocean is another chunky timber bed, inspired by a customer who loved the Tibet, but wanted even more timber on show! The Ocean looks best in a large bedroom with similar, contemporary solid wood furniture. The Ethnicraft Flat tall-boy and the Azur chest of drawers are particular favourites.
