Malabar Contemporary Wooden Bed

(12 customer reviews)

from £655

The Malabar wooden bed retains the elegant simplicity of our popular Nevada, Sahara and Tibet beds. The difference between the Malabar and the Tibet? The Tibet is 8cm higher (to the slats) and has chunkier legs, while the Malabar is shorter overall, but has a slightly taller headboard panel. The Malabar’s headboard supports lots of pillows and still shows your favourite wood grain!

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

Product Description

Our Malabar wooden bed base boasts a modern, minimal design. With a simple frame, it creates a timeless look, and is available to order in our full range of timbers and finishes. It is a popular, medium height bed.

A contemporary wooden bed base, the Malabar is a real staple, and can suit a whole range of styles and tastes. Photographed above in both solid oak and maple.

We also have the Malabar pictured in Black Stained Oak, which is available to order just here.

All our wooden beds come with sprung beech slats as standard, for extra comfort and to help increase the life of your mattress. This bed is also supplied with non-slip matting to keep your mattress in place.

Every bed is made to order. Our current lead-time is currently 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.

  1. Rebecca Lim

    The black malabar bed is a beautiful, elegant and timeless design with a stunning finish. Needless to say I am very happy with this bed!

  2. Jane Wheeler

    Delighted with our malabar bed – beautifully made and finished. Excellent service. Thank you!

  3. Laura Rafferty

    Beautiful looking oak bed of fantastic quality. Low headboard which works great in our eaves room. Customer service good too.

  4. Chris

    Top quality finish. Definitely built to last, love the oak. Just shows up the rest of the furniture in the room, so looking into cube bedside tables to match.

  5. Ryan & Lina

    This product is amazing. The quality is far superior to anything else we looked at and is good value for money. The customer service was great and they were able to give us a “bespoke” size headboard which was a nice touch. We will definitely use again and can honestly say that you will struggle to find a higher quality product.

  6. Ruth and Owen

    We love our Malabar bed – we debated for ages as it was a pretty significant investment, but couldn’t be more pleased. Ours is oak, it is super solid. We went for a slightly taller bedhead, which the company were happy to do. It was easy to put together, and ordering/delivery all went smoothly. It feels really high quality, and looks just great.
    We would definitely recommend them 🙂

  7. Gill Hughes

    Always wanted one of these beds as we gazed at them through the windows of the old shop on Division Street for many years and now that dream come true. Love our new Malabar in Ash – contemporary, very solid and comfortable and looks fab. Natural Bed Company were great to deal with, friendly and helpful and personal delivery service as local in Sheffield. Very easy to construct too. Highly recommend.

  8. Pauline Peach

    We are really pleased with our Malabar bed. The ordering and delivery was hassle free and the oak is excellent quality. It was easy to put together and the low headboard is just right for our loft room. Very solid and well made. Would recommend.

  9. Jane Roscoe

    Beautiful design and well made. Bought the malabar in oak, really simple to put together and it looks great! You can tell the timber used is top quality

  10. Joanna E

    We’re thrilled with our beautifully made Malabar bed. The style is exactly what we have been looking for. The Natural Bed Company is a wonderful shop; we were very impressed with the informative, personal and professional service. Second to none. Delivery to our flat in London was no problem.

  11. Jennifer

    Beautiful bed. Easy to assemble. Well made, refined, lovely details. Solid construction. Nice people, easy to deal with (delivery service was also decent). Glad we found you – we saw your beds on Pinterest! Ps We had a footboard added too – worth doing.

  12. z.misseri

    Excellent service and the beds are beautiful! We bought 3 king size in oak and we’ll definitely be buying from you again if we need another. The oak is a lovely colour and goes well with our oak floors. The Malabar is a very modern bed, not too high and not too low. They are of such high quality and I could not find anything on the market that came close to this design/quality. Thank you. I would definitely recommend.
