If you would like to order this bed upholstered in your own fabric, please contact us for further information. We will require approx. 2m of plain fabric for this bed base, potentially more if your fabric is patterned. Fabrics must also comply with the appropriate Fire Retardancy certification as required.

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.

Mattress Depth Information:

All of our upholstered bed bases are designed to fit a mattress depth of around 20cm. If your mattress is much deeper than this, the thickness of the cushioned headboard can prevent the mattress from sitting perfectly on your bed frame and may overhang along the bottom edge slightly.
We can customise any of our upholstered bed bases by slightly raising the headboard panel in line with the depth of your mattress - Most small alterations do not require any additional cost.
Please do let us know your mattress depth at the time of order and we can confirm if any alterations are required and if there would be any additional cost involved!

    Beautiful bed, easy to put together (single handed!) but totally stable and very, very comfortable. Makes getting up in the morning that much harder, especially at weekends.

  2. Carolyn Blake (verified owner)

    More than happy with this bed. It looks beautiful and was very easy to assemble. The slats make the bed really comfortable too. Overall stunning and worth the price and wait.
