Thank you for your patience and understanding in these difficult times.
The Kobe Bed is also available with a headboard – please take a look at the Kobe Japanese Bed with Headboard page to view and order this model.
There are three great models in this family of low beds, all the same style but at different heights. The tallest is the Kyoto bed, a similar style to the Kobe but higher; the Kyoto is tall enough to accommodate under-bed drawers. The third related low bed is the Kumo which sits between the Kobe and the Kyoto: it’s higher than the Kobe, but lower than the Kyoto.

All our wooden beds are fitted with sprung beech slats for extra comfort and to increase the life of your mattress. Link here to see the simple self assembly instructions. This bed is supplied with non-slip matting to keep your mattress in place.
Our ‘natural’ lacquer finish, named for its clarity, allows you to appreciate the myriad colours and subtle variations in tone of natural timber. It retains a subtle, soft sheen which protects the timber from grease marks and some stains.
We introduced our natural lacquer finish 3 years ago. It is still possible to order your furniture with the original ‘clear’ finish used previously- please call us to discuss your options when matching new Natural Bed Company furniture to older pieces.
