Beds & underbed storage

General details

 A classic, exceptionally good-looking bed. Difficult to make and made so well!

Our space saving 'Minimalist' beds are ergonomically designed and crafted using traditional carpentry methods to ensure they are sturdy and stylish. Choose these designs to help you get the most out of your available space and obtaining a larger mattress size while retaining a breezy minimalist look. With the legs tucked underneath the frame and no protruding corners, you save extra space and keep them out of the way of your knees and toes. These beds are slightly smaller than the mattress so that the mattress overhangs the sides and end by up to approximately 3/4 of an inch (1.9 cm), maximising the size of the mattresses allowed in smaller rooms. 

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.

Make your bed special and infuse it with your personality by choosing from a range of headboards, leg designs, and a wide range of colour options. If you don't want a headboard, select the "platform" model. Enhance the natural grain of the wood by selecting one of our wood stains. We offer a lovely selection of water based paints to help add colour to your bedroom while being long-lasting, safe for you, your family, animals, and the environment. If you prefer a fabric finish, check out our curated selection of 100% natural Belgian linen, soft jean cottons, or the easy clean velvet options. They are truly beautiful...

Oxford headboard

If you're looking for a luxurious high headboard, then the Oxford headboard is the ideal choice. Slightly reclined, with rounded edges, this design will bring the grandeur of classic opulence to your bedroom.

Platform

Our platform bed is simplicity itself! With the legs tucked underneath the frame so that there are no protruding corners, you save that extra little bit of space and keep them out of the way of your knees and toes! 

Choose from one of our satin finishes, which beautifully enhance the natural grain of the wood, or a painted finish. Our stains and paints are water-based, which are safe for the environment, children, and pets.

Dimensions

We have made our "Minimalist" bed frames to be as streamlined as possible. The bed frame itself is approximately 7 cm tall (3 inches). Add this to the length of the legs that you have chosen and that will be the height the mattress sits on.

Our Traditional space saving bed frames are made to be slightly smaller than the mattress that sits on them, allowing the mattress to sit over the edge approximately 2 cm (3/4 of an inch) all the way around the bed. This allows the bed to take up a minimal 'footprint' in your bedroom whilst moving the corners and legs of the bed away from being in the path of your feet and knees as you walk past and get in and out of bed daily.

'Pitched' & 'Flare' legs (underbed storage available) 

  • Clearance 12” (30 cm)
  • Floor to top of frame (slats) 14.5” (37 cm)

'Cylindrical' & 'Geometric Flare' legs (underbed storage available)

Central legs

  • 5mm shorter than on the dimensions above, these two legs have been designed into all of our great double beds to make them 'elephant proof' and always flat!

Special leg lengths

  • We can vary the heights of our legs. Please contact our sales team for details.
Finishes & Fabrics

When you customize your bed, you can select from the following:

Stains

We offer many beautiful wood-enhancing stains that are completely water-based and safe for our environment, animals, and children. Our stain finishes include Black, Oak, Medium Oak, Teak, Red Mahogany, and English Oak. All of these stains have a two-part high-quality final lacquer finish applied to enhance the grain and longevity of our beds.

Paints

Our premium water-based paint is applied by top craftspeople from the industry within a controlled environment for lasting quality. The finishes are healthy for the environment, people, and pets. We don't offer painted finishes for the frame of our Original beds, but we can customize it for you at no extra cost. Just contact us for more information.

Fabrics

We hand-upholster our headboards with top-quality 100% Belgian linen, soft jean cotton, or easy-clean velvet fabrics fitted by our upholsterers using quality fillers. Available in various colors.

Unfinished

Select 'unfinished' to leave your bed sanded and 'ready to finish' so you can match the paint, fabric, or wood colors within your home.

Varnish

Select 'varnished,' and we will use clear lacquer but no staining — just a cleanable, protected, and well-finished wood presence.

Underbed Storage

All of our "Minimalist" beds apart from their low legs version, have the clearance height underneath the frame so that they can accommodate our supersized storage boxes. Designed specifically for our beds to offer the perfect place to hide away clothes, extra bed linen, shoes, bags, and toys. They are available in any of our beautiful wood enhancing finishes and paints, which are completely water-based and safe for our environment, animals, and children.

The stain or paint covers the external faces of these sturdy boxes, which are designed to slide smoothly across a carpeted bedroom floor. For wooden floors, just add sticky felt protectors (as with all other furniture), to protect the floor.

Our underbed storage boxes are meticulously crafted in our environmentally friendly London workshop (in which 98% of our waste is recycled), using traditional skills and techniques applied by the expert hands of our carpenters.

Dimensions

  • Length: 105 cm
  • Height:28cm or 20 cm (when placing an order for a frame, the right storage drawer height options will be offered as a final selection in the ordering process)
  • Depth: 50 cm

Given the dimensions above, this allows for one underbed storage box for a single frame and two (one on either side) for a double bed or larger.

The drawers are supplied flat-packed with an amazing bolt-together simple and strong design. Assembled for free upon delivery by our installation delivery crew.

    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.
