General details

Using quality Redwood throughout makes a classic look like these. Many companies have made cheaper looking beds because they miss the opportunity of choosing excellent wood and applying excellent finishes. 

Our 'Original' beds are handmade using mortise and tenon joints to ensure your bed is solid. The frame's solid redwood 15 cm wide slats firmly support the mattress. We don't use any white wood pine in any of our beds because it's so brittle as it comes from a quick growing tree (and inevitably looks naff). There were only a couple of London companies that still used this quality wood, no one else in the country. 

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 cartons, or the easy clean velvet options. They are truly beautiful...

Dimensions

We have made our 'Classic' bed frames to be as streamlined as possible. The bed frame its self is approximately 7 cm's 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.

All of our 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 of 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 your feet and knees as you walk past and get in and out of bed daily.

Finishes & Fabrics

Joyfully, 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 are Black, Oak, Medium Oak, Teak 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.

Our premium water based paint is applied by top crafts people from the industry within a controlled environment for lasting quality. The finishes are healthy for the environment, people and pets.

Fabrics

We hand upholster our headboards with top quality 100% Belgian Linen or Velvet fabrics fitted by our upholsterers using quality fillers. Available in various colours.

Unfinished

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

Select "varnish" and we will use clear lacquer but no staining, just a cleanable, protected and well finished wood presence.

Underbed Storage

All of our "Original" beds apart from the low 'Retro' legs version, have the clearance height underneath the frame so that they can accommodate our storage boxes. Designed specifically for our beds to offer the perfect place to hideaway clothes, extra bed linen, shoes, bags and toys.

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

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

What Our Customers Say

Jenny Davies

I absolutely LOVE your beds! This is the eighth bed my family has bought. [...] We are big fans of yours. I like your company because you are local, you use good strong materials, and you are respectful of the environment. Also, your prices are competitive. [...] One other thing, your beds are easy to move, we moved one into a basement, it was easy and it's just as firm and solid as it was. Your delivery staff are wonderful, so careful and willing – they do a great job. If too long, we can leave only this: I would never buy a bed from any other company – my first purchase was from a friend's recommendation and I continue to pass on the good advice.

GD from London

I bought two beds/mattresses from this company back in 2002 and both have been very comfortable and lasted extremely well. I am now renting out a room, so replacing one of them. The service I received was absolutely fantastic. All my dealings with the staff were friendly and efficient and the guys that bring the beds and build them did a great job, without fuss. I highly recommend the quality of the product. [Also] the ethos of the company is both rare and refreshing.

N Rae

We were so pleased to discover that our favourite bed shop was trading online – we'd bought all of our previous beds, over a period of 30 years, from it. This time, too, the service was excellent, and we're very happy with the bed and mattress. Five star service and product!

Joe W

We used the video call service and Dia, part of the Warren Evans team, was very knowledgeable and guided us through buying two beds and mattresses for our children. We are delighted with the beds and mattresses – the children are certainly sleeping better.

LjMH

The quality of their products and their customer service is simply outstanding. We used them when we lived in the area but we continue to use them now that we are in Midlands. I only wish one can buy bedroom furniture more often.

Lucy G

I've bought three Warren Evans beds over the years. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever – quick service, lovely designs, comfy mattresses, and really good quality frames that last for years.

Paul C from West Sussex

The bed is just what we hoped for. A very solid construction with a quality mattress. The delivery men were efficient and friendly. A really good experience.

Ross from Hertfordshire

Really helpful with all our special requests on ordering. This will be our fourth Warren Evans bed – can't recommend them highly enough.

Alex M

Wonderful customer service! [...] The bed looks fantastic; I couldn't recommend them enough.

  •  

    I was 17 when I started making beds here in London in 1978. Building beds that last and using sustainable natural materials has always been a core requirement and became the first FSC certified bed makers (as well as the oldest)!

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

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