Sahara Wooden Bed

(6 customer reviews)

from £610

The Sahara is seriously stylish and tastefully understated. No wonder it’s one of our most popular wooden beds! It is pictured here in a range of timbers; solid walnut, ash and whitewash pine. Its simple, elegant design makes it the perfect platform to showcase your timber of choice.

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

The Sahara wooden bed is part of our classic Nevada collection. It’s a minimal design, timeless in its simplicity, that is easy to style to your taste. It looks great in any of our timbers, and can be ordered here in our full range, along with your choice of size.

Take a look at our timbers page for more information and to order timber samples.

This bed base features a compact footprint, making it perfect if you’d like a big bed in a small space. The mattress sits flush with the edges of this bed base on the sides and foot-end.

If you like the style of the Sahara, but would prefer a low bed, take a look at the Sonora bed base. The full Nevada collection also features our Nevada, Malabar and Tibet bed bases.

Our solid wood beds come with sprung beech slats as standard; both for extra comfort and to increase the life of your mattress. We also supply non-slip matting to help 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.

Made in Sheffield, keeping local skills alive | 12 year structural guarantee

Mattress Depth Information: Our bed bases are designed to fit a mattress depth of around 20cm. If your mattress is much deeper than this, please let us know. We can customise this bed by slightly raising the headboard panel in line with the depth of your mattress. Most small alterations do not require any additional cost. When placing your order, please do let us know your mattress depth. We can then confirm if any alterations are required and if there would be any additional cost involved.

Please note: ‘Clear Pine’ is finished in our standard, natural-look lacquer. ‘Sanded Pine’ does not have any lacquer/finish at all. They do not look any different from one another, but the ‘sanded’ option does feel slightly rougher to the touch.

    Beautifully made bed. Simple, functional design. Even the ‘task’ of putting it together was a joy. I look forward to moving house just so I can do that again. I know I will love this bed (even when I’m not sleeping in it) for years to come.

    The staff have been very helpful and accommodating throughout. I travelled a long way to look at many beds in person and they weren’t all in the show room but by arrangement they let me see the others in the warehouse. They also looked after my bags while I looked around. And then, since they make the beds to order and sometimes that takes time, they don’t ask you to pay more than a deposit until they’ve actually made it. It’s little things like this that are the mark of a company with a high ethical standard, who’s primary goal is to be of service.

    I bought several of these beds for our new house a couple of years ago and loved them so much I recently bought another one when we had to replace an old bed. They are beautifully made, simple and stylish, and fit well in our modern home. They were delivered promptly by a lovely team, easy to assemble, and now extremely comfortable to sleep in (I brought the accompanying mattresses from John Lewis). Would highly recommend.

    Really nice design. Well constructed and easy to assemble.

    I’m very happy and would purchase from the company again.

    Simply put, The Natural Bed Company making a beautiful, contemporary furniture with the highest quality materials, and environmentally conscious methods.
    We bought a Sahara bed in oak, and it’s lovely. The bed came on-time, packaged using the bare minimum of plastic material, but carefully and securely housed in robust cardboard. The delivery company they used were also very good, and offered to unpack, but I did this myself and assembled the bed myself (which was easy). The customer service is also great – Beth was super helpful with answering my questions. I was initially hesitant about spending a bit extra on a bed from NBC, but very glad I did – it’s a piece of furniture we will live with for many years, and far and away superior to a mass-manufactured bed. They have taken care to make this bed, and it shows. Very pleased indeed…smug, even 🙂
