1 Headboard shape: December

4 SIZE: double

We design our beds slightly smaller than the mattress, so that the mattress overhangs the sides & end by up to approximately 3/4 inch (1.9cm). With the legs tucked underneath the frame so that there are no protruding corners, you save that extra little bit of space & keep them out of the way of your knees & toes!

General details

A simple elegant fabric bed. Just like all the beds we make in our London workshops, we use top quality solid sustainably sourced wood throughout all of the frames, legs, supports and thick slats which are 15 cm wide.

The chic range of beds, first and foremost are 'space saving' which means that the frame sits underneath your mattress, reducing its footprint within your bedroom.

Choose the type of fabric and the colour that suits you from our curated selection of 100% natural Belgian linen, soft jean cottons, or the easy clean velvet options. Enhance the natural grain of the wooden legs by selecting the colour of the wood stain finishe that completes the look of your new Chic bed.

We ensure the quality and ethical production of every aspect of our furniture from start to finish. We don't ship products thousands of miles, so we can control the quality of the FSC wood, the quality and type of mattress fillers, the workmanship, the limited packaging that is reused, and the free deliveries - assembly service - returns - old bed/mattress removals with recycling. All direct to you from our London workshop and committed staff. Buying direct from the craftsmen is always better value. Your bed will be skilfully handmade in our environmentally friendly London workshop, be built to be long-lasting, comfortable, and beautiful. We recycle 98% of our waste and use only water-based finishes on our FSC® certified wood. Traditional carpentry methods ensure your bed is solid, comfortable, and will stand the test of time. Our beds come in sections that allow them to fit into all homes, so there's no need to worry about narrow hallways or stairs.

Finishes & Fabrics


We offer beautiful wood enhancing stains that are completely water-based and safe for our environment, animals, and children. Our stain finishes are Black, Oak, Medium Oak, Teak and Red Mahogany. All of these stains have a two-part high-quality final lacquer finish applied to enhance the grain and longevity of our beds. Select "Varnish" and we apply two coats of clear lacquer without stain — leaving just a cleanable, protected, quality wood finish.


We hand upholster our headboards with top grade 100% Belgian linen, soft jean cotton, or easy clean velvet fabrics fitted by our upholsterers using quality fillers. All our fabrics are available in various colours.


    I was 17 in 1978 when I started hand making beds here in London, building beds that last and using sustainable natural materials has always been my core requirement. We became the first FSC certified timber bed makers in the UK, and in caring for the woods that we use, we influenced the bedding industry to reduce the use of rain-forest and other ancient forest woods!

    Sadly most of the UK's beds and mattresses are really skimpily made of poor quality, unethically sourced materials. I focus on craftsmanship and environmentally sound practices to make beautiful products that last; I like delivering good quality, service and value. 

    Since 1978 I've been handmaking lasting quality beds here in London.
