Kyoto Japanese Style Bed – Without Headboard

(21 customer reviews)

from £495

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 allows for 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. It can give your room a truly Oriental feel, and is available in our full range of timbers. Wenge Stained Pine or Oak (both pictured above) make for great timber choices for this bed base. 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 base leaves you with real estate to play with. You can either order the Kyoto here without a headboard, or it is available with a headboard if you prefer.

The photos above also show the Kyoto Shelf table and Kyoto Drawer table. These bedside table were designed specifically to suit the Kyoto range of bed bases. A simple and modern style, the Kyoto works with a wide range of our contemporary side tables.

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 protects the timber from grease marks and some stains.

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

  1. Emma Mitchell

    Fantastic product. High quality finish and very easy to put together. Great service from Natural Bed Company as well, as we were kept up to date with our order’s progress and it arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommend both the bed and the company.

  2. David Toop

    Very good service – the bed arrived as promised, it was easy to assemble, looks and feels great. I’m very pleased to have made this choice.

  3. Anna

    Very happy with recent purchase of this bed which looks perfect – crisp, sleak and modern – in our recently renovated bedroom with its wooden floors and white walls. Brought mattress from John Lewis and the bed is extremely comfortable. Very easy to assemble.

  4. Pascoe Brewer

    We bought the Kyoto in king Size with the organic latex mattress and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. Very simple minimalist look. The quality of the wood (oak) is extremely good and very easy to assemble. Very highly recommended!

  5. Erik Gannon

    I bought this bed in euro king size recently and am very happy with it. Its a beautifully made bed and very easy to put together – I would highly recommend one. Make sure to source the right bed linen however to maintain the minimal look. This isn’t as easy as it seems as heavy quilts are very popular which don’t work well with this bed in my opinion. Service from the Natural Bed Company was also excellent.

    The staff are extremely knowledgeable about their products, each time I phoned they were able to answer my questions, accurately, without looking the info up or asking someone else.

    The bed is solid, well made, easy to assemble, smooth finish. The downside for me is that I don’t like the colour. I ordered antique pine and the colour of the bed is a pale yellow colour, not what I call antique pine. I thought I asked for a colour sample when I ordered the bed, but possibly I’m remembering this wrong. Anyway, a sample didn’t come and I didn’t chase it up. So, I recommend getting this bed but check the colour first.

    The bed didn’t come on the day it was due. I believe this was a fault of the courier not the Natural Bed Company. As the Natural Bed Company are otherwise so good with customer service, I imagine they will stop using this courier if this happens frequently.

  7. Claire

    Bought in small double, pine. Beautifully made and easy to assemble, delivery within the 4 weeks. Highly recommend, in fact looking a at a second purchase!

  8. Grace

    Very pleased with consistently good service from the Natural Bed Company. Products arrive on time and are of high quality. The kyoto bed is easy to assemble and excellent for a small space. No complaints!

  9. Timea

    I love this bed! It took a while to decide if to buy it or not as it’s very expensive in oak compared to other beds. However I wanted a japanese style and nobody makes this style in the UK to such high quality. I ordered 4 under bed drawers and 2 tailor-made bedside cabinets as well. Every item is perfect and very well made. My bedroom looks great, simple and stylish. Great service too. Thanks

  10. Marie (verified owner)

    I always wanted a low style bed so when I came across this website I was very happy. We ordered the walnut version. Not cheap, but this is evident in the quality of the wood and finish. Very easy to assemble. If you love the Japanese aesthetic, you will adore this design.

  11. Sarah

    Really pleased with the oak version of the kyoto bed with headboard. We also bought 2 cube bedside cabinets made to our chosen height and they look great together.
    The finish is really smooth and the framework well thought out and easy to assemble, with parts having numbers stamped on them (hidden when assembled) so you really can’t go wrong.
    We had to wait a few weeks as each item is made to order, but it was well worth the wait. I collected from the workshop and even though it wasn’t going via a courier, a lot of time had been spent packing the components up with huge amounts of bubble wrap and corner protectors.

  12. Paul Murgatroyd (verified owner)

    Exceeded all expectations, superbly crafted easy to set up, highly recommend both the bed and company first class service and product all the way.

  13. Kit Petersen

    Beautifully made,sturdy and good quality more than expected. It lives up to its true Japanese aesthetics.Very easy to assemble. The Natural bed company has excellent service, smooth delivery and just friendly company to deal with, that wants to insure their customers are fully happy, with their purchase.

  14. Anita Casey (verified owner)

    This is an excellent bed. Such good quality. I wanted a low bed but with space underneath and this works perfectly. The oak finish is lovely too. Customer service is how every company should be. I am very happy with my purchase.

  15. Rebecca

    Excellent bed – specially made to fit a non-standard mattress. Frame is very strong and well designed. Arrived beautifully packed, very smooth delivery – excellent service. Only slight downside was the ends of the battens were not sanded so you have to take care of splinters when fitting them into the ends – apart from that the finished quality is superb.

    • Peter Bennion

      Dear Rebecca,

      Many thanks for your kind words. Apologies if the slats had rough edges, I assume now the bed is assembled this will no longer be an issue as the plastic end caps will fully cover the ends, however we could provide a new set of slats and ensure the edges are sanded for you. Please email us at [email protected] if you would like any further assistance with this.

      Sincere Regards,

  16. Anne-Marie Molinari

    We ordered 3 Kyoto beds (in different widths) they arrived on time and were very easy to assemble (although I have two left hands)… We love the quality and the simple design.
    The other very good point is the friendly and professional service (by mail or by phone) we received.
    We will certainly order others items.
    Thank you very much to Natural Bed Company.

  17. Mara Fraser

    Bought this bed with the headboard in Euro Kingsize. Excellent, very high quality product, although the bolts connecting the headboard aren’t great (or possibly our skills at putting together are lacking) the rest was super easy, it is very comfortable, and we were really pleased with the customer service keeping us fully informed of delivery times and soon on. Buy with confidence from this company.

  18. Jianbo Mao (verified owner)

    Bought one single and one double Kyoto beds both with head boards. Very happy with the quality and workmanship. They were delivered in flat-packed boxes and it was very easy to assemble with the clearly marked numbers on each part. We like the simple yet clean style. Well done to Natural Bed Company!

  19. Isabel Moore (verified owner)

    This bed is beautiful and the quality of the finished product is high. The size options available were a key decision factor as my room is small, the smallest single bed fits perfectly well.
    It came with instructions on how to assemble that were precise and easy to follow.
    I am very happy with the product and the service, will buy from the company again.

    King Size Kyoto Bed (Oak), 7 Layer Futon Calico
    Took me about 1½ Months, browsing the internet, to eventually decide on this one.
    The assembly was easy.
    Love the simplicity of the design and clean lines, which were key requirements and didn’t disappoint on arrival. The oak feels solid and smooth. We requested the headboard holes be drilled, as at a later date we might fit it.

    It is a pleasure to look at and sleep on.

  21. delphine.rousselot9

    We had the pleasure of ordering our new bed: Kyoto Japanese Style in solid Cherry Wood from the Natural Bed Company. It is a lovely style, very easy to put together.
    Beth was our customer service representative & Charles was our designer.
    We highly recommend them both.
    We live in the South of France, they packed our bed very well, it arrived in pristine condition.
    Thank you very much. We will be pleased to buy more from you.
