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 whitewood pine in any of our beds because it's too 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 cottons, or the easy clean velvet options. They are truly beautiful...

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, 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 crafts people 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 finished for the frame of our Original beds, but we can customise 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 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.

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 "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 hide away clothes, extra bed linen, shoes, bags, and toys. They are available in any of our beautiful wood enhancing finishes, which are completely water-based and safe for our environment, animals, and children.

The stain chosen will cover 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.

The 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 by the expert hands of our carpenters.

Dimensions

  • Length: 94 cm
  • Height:28 cm or 20 cm (when placing an order for a frame, the right storage drawer options will be offered as a final selection in the ordering process)
  • Depth: 52 cm

Given the dimensions above, this allows for up to two storage boxes under a single frame and four (two on either side) under a 4-foot small 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.

 

What Our Customers Say

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.

Could not recommend these guys enough. Choosing your bed on their website was so easy — there are so many options to choose from, which is rare. The delivery was fantastic. I really wasn't expecting the two men who delivered the bed to put it up, and put the mattress up too. The two men did a very good job. Usually my husband would have tightened the bolts and screws again himself but he said he didn't need to. The bed itself is very sturdy; the wood is very good quality and clearly hard and solid. The colour is wonderful and doesn't look cheap at all. Although the bed was expensive, it's worth it.

Lovely bed arrived on stated time and put together by lovely delivery men who were really friendly. I can't recommend this company enough — it's the second bed we have purchased. We live in Norfolk, which they delivered from London. I'm very impressed and I know the bed is solid as our previous one we have had a few years now . So solid and heavy you will not be able to just move it around — it takes two and is very heavy. But that's why it's a great bed, because you know it will stand the test of time.

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.

Bought bed frame and one of their own brand mattress a few years ago when they still had physical showrooms, liked it enough that bought another bed frame (essentially the same one) from them recently. The frames are great quality and really nice that you can customise lots of aspects. The mattress was fantastic too, very comfy and still in good condition years later — would've got another one this time too but had decided to go for a Tempur one this time.

Very pleased with the new bed frame. It looks great and it's solid (i.e. doesn’t creak like less well-made frames). Delivery was quick and efficient. I am glad we decided to go with Warren Evans. It was a bit more expensive than some frames we had looked at, but the quality was well worth it.

Great company; brilliant quality and service. We are very happy with our new bed but [we] are keeping our old bed frame also from Warren Evans, which has already given over 10 years of good service. Proper solid wood built to last and built in the UK — in my opinion fantastic value.

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!

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.

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.

Terrific. Delighted with our purchase — the bed is comfortable and so beautiful. The order and delivery process was really smooth too; communication throughout was great. Highly recommended!

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.

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.

Very comfortable, solid and stylish bed.

    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.
