Beds & underbed storage...
- General details
We insure 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.
Our 'Original' beds are handmade using mortise and tenon joints to ensure your bed is solid, the frame holds the mattress and it will stand the test of time. Warren has produced more than 900,000 of these beds over the past 43 years. And very many are still beautiful and happily being used in today's homes. These beds are slightly larger than the mattress by approximately 3 1/2 inches (9cm).
Our space saving 'Traditional' 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 & end by up to approximately 3/4 of an inch (1.9cm), maximising the size of the mattresses allowed in smaller rooms.
Our space saving 'Ottoman' beds have been developed by us to be incredibly strong and long lasting. The legs and frame are tucked under the mattress saving space and keeping them out of the way of your knees and toes! Choose these designs to get the most out of your available space and being able to have a larger mattress where ever possible. These space-saving beds offer a stylish storage solution using our expertly designed sub-structure, which are made from specially engineered solid Birch plywood on all four sides and the slats, built to last. They are fitted with quality German gas struts, which assist with lifting the ottoman's mattress platform and holding the storage space open until you’re ready to close it. The mattress platform is designed to exclude dust from your under-bed storage area, so that you can store your stuff without the need for extra bags or boxes. There are no gaps in our solid birch ply slatted platform, resulting in the very positive outcome of the storage area remaining virtually dust free (regular slatted basis will not do this). These beds are slightly smaller than the mattress so that the mattress overhangs the sides & end by up to approximately 3/4 of an inch (1.9cm), maximising the size of the mattresses allowed in smaller rooms.
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...

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.
