From sofas to slumber: choosing a bespoke bed

A bespoke bed carries the promise of both relaxation and repose, from the moment you open the door of the bedroom. Our beds offer a sanctuary of comfort whenever we need it most. For late nights, early mornings and cosy duvet days, choosing the perfect bed to sink into has never been easier. 

Why do I need a new bespoke bed?

Your reasoning for needing a new bed will influence the style you choose. For example, you might be redecorating your bedroom, in which case you might opt for a statement frame like our Gothic or Pentlow. If you’re looking for a bed for your guest bedroom, you might want to consider a sofa bed which will take up less space.

Which style is best for me?

Divan base: A divan offers a solid base with drawers making this a practical storage solution for your home. Choose from either two or four spacious built in drawers, on whichever side that works best for you. 

Ottoman base: The Ottoman lifts up to reveal hollow space underneath the bed, which is the full size of the mattress. We’d recommend storing items that you don’t need to use regularly, such as out of season clothing, surplus blankets and bed linens, and wrapping paper and gift bags in an ottoman base.

Sofa beds: A perfect solution if you need somewhere for your guests to stay, but don’t have the room for a permanent bed. You can choose from a range of sizes, including four seater, two seater and snuggler too. From our classic Alwinton to our cosy Bignor sofa bed.
