ercol for John Lewis Chiltern Bedstead, Oak, Double

Product information

This bed features the classic criss cross design on the headboard and a sprung slatted base for added comfort. As with all of the pieces from the Chiltern range, the bed takes its inspiration from mid 20th century archive designs and features iconic crossed slats for a collection that's both striking and practical.

Coordinate with the other pieces from the Chiltern range, designed exclusively for John Lewis.

ercol was founded in 1920 by a young Italian immigrant, Lucian Ercolani, whose simple goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who really took pride in their jobs.

Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice bed, terrible service The bed is very nice. However, it arrived with completely the wrong box of fittings (screws, nuts, and so on). I had paid for assembly and the delivery staff realised the mistake (which was not their fault). The one-star review is because this took around a week to rectify and I had to assemble it myself (though the assembly fee was reimbursed, of course). Rather than send the small box of required fittings, a whole new bed delivery had to be be set up. (When the new bed arrived in a massive furniture van, I explained to the delivery staff what the issue was, they opened the large box and extracted the small box of fittings.) It should have been possible simply to have posted me the fittings. It would have been quicker and more environmentally-sound. 21 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by lovely bed, shame about the colour Lovely looking bed and comfy too. Simple to put together. The instructions say 20 minutes to put together, a little optimistic. It took me about 20 minutes to put the plastic caps over each end of every bed slat. Slightly disappointed by the cheap MDF that is used to support the middle of the bed, but this cant be seen and does the job. The reason I gave this a four is because of the colour of the wood. Where the wood has been butted together there is a stark contrast in colours. The colour variation is quite extreme, with extremely light wood, (which to me looks quite green) compared to the darker wood. I understand that wood is natural and you will get variation, but it doesn't look right and doesn't blend. However, as it is purely just its appearance and there is nothing structurally wrong with the bed I do not have the time to go through a process of ringing john lewis, asking for an exchange, dismantling a bed and building a new one, so I will just cover it over with the duvet! 02 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product! Very well built, beautiful design, easy to put together, sturdy feel, great quality of materials. A fantastic product at a reasonable price. 05 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bed I absolutely adore my ercol Chiltern bed. It is sturdy and beautifully crafted and I imagine it will last me years. I was concerned that it might be uncomfortable to lean against the back, but with a pillow it is very comfortable. I can't comment on its assembly, as I paid for it to be assembled (well worth it - there are rather a lot of screws and bits from what I could see!) 14 June 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with product We have a smallish bedroom so needed quite a compact bed, one that doesn't take up unnecessary extra space with the frame. Very happy with this bed, love the style and it feels very sturdy, unlike our squeaky old bed this makes no noise! 22 July 2012
