Kyoto – Japanese Bed with Headboard

(5 customer reviews)

from £579

The Kyoto is our most popular low, Japanese style bed. Perfect for a minimal Oriental inspired bedroom. Similar to our Kumo bed, the Kyoto is 5cm taller. This makes ample space for under-bed drawers, which can be ordered here on our website. Under-bed drawers are a great option if you want to keep the clutter at bay, but still preserve that minimal look!

Please see the tabs below for further information on this design, including dimensions, lead time and timber options etc.

Product Description

Our Kyoto bed is our most popular low bed. Inspired by traditional Japanese styling, the Kyoto has a truly Oriental feel. The Kyoto is shown photographed here in solid oak and beech, but is available in our full range of timbers. Take a look at our timbers page for more information and to order timber samples.

Also a great option for loft spaces or low-ceiling rooms; the Kyoto’s compact footprint leaves you with real estate to play with. You can order the Kyoto here with a headboard, or without a headboard if you prefer.
Like the style of the Kyoto bed, but prefer a lower bed base? Take a look at the Kumo and Kobe beds; variations on the original Kyoto design. Or, for a slightly more loft style look, try the Oregon bed.

A Kyoto Shelf table and Kyoto Drawer table can also be ordered separately, to complete your room set.

All our wooden beds are fitted with sprung beech slats for extra comfort and to increase the life of your mattress you will also be supplied with non-slip matting to keep your mattress in place.

Every bed is made to order. Our current lead-time is around 8 weeks (+ delivery).

Lacquer Finish: Our ‘natural’ look lacquer finish, named for its clarity, allows you to appreciate the myriad colours and subtle variations in tone of natural timber. It retains a very subtle, soft sheen which also protects the timber from grease marks and some stains.

Easy self assembly. Click here to see our simple self assembly instructions.

  1. Rachel

    Very happy with our bed. Chose ash and like it very much. It’s definitely worth going to the shop to see the different frames and woods. I hadn’t been thinking of ash till I saw it properly. You can fit drawers under Kyoto – v useful. Assembly is very easy and delivery was no trouble to arrange.

    We bought the Kyoto superking size with headboard in Beech and are super happy with our choice. So easy to assemble and the wood is very neutral – overall very elegant. We did a lot of research into superking beds and the NBC definitely has the best quality and design for the cost. Customer service was great although our bed did take a little longer to make due to the summer period.

    Kyoto king size with headboard in pine – this is a simple and beautiful design, easy to put together and sturdy without being bulky. The pine has a clear lacquer which gives it a subtle finish. The delivery was as promised and we were kept informed throughout. Quality sprung slats give real support and comfort. What’s not to like!

    Beautiful product! Nigel made the bed and delivered it us! The bed was easy to assemble and you can smell the quality of the of the wood! Many thanks to Beth for communicating with us during this difficult time and many thanks to Nigel!

    While the lead time was long-ish, the bed was delivered exactly when it was promised. The build quality is top notch and the bed looks just as stunning as we hoped. Easy assembly job with great instructions that are simple to follow. Premium price, but then it is a premium product that will probably outlast us. Couldn’t be happier.
