Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid bed Nice looking bed that was fairly simple to erect. It takes 2 people to put it up thought. The wood has a nice finish and the whole thing is solid. 04 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful bed Really beautiful bed, looks very clean and stylish. Very comfortable also. Not cheap but does feels like quality a product. 26 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely bed! Wanted a simple wooden bed with no footboard to go with mid-century furniture in our bedroom - this is excellent - well made, good design, good price and super-comfy! Wood is less orange than in photos. Happy customer. 30 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Having done my research and getting excellent help from the assistant about all the different beds the week before, I went into the shop determined to buy a divan. However, the Ercol bed looked so clean, fresh and modern that I changed my mind at the last minute. I need not have worried about my change of heart as the bed delivers, and is just as comfortable as a divan (as the assistant had told me). However, it is extremely heavy and can't be moved easily (see my review on JL Natural, Egyptian cotton mattress) but as the assistant said, I can vacuum under the bed without moving it. 17 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable We purchased this bedstead to replace an existing one and we have continued to use our memory foam mattress. For some reason, which we don't understand, we find the new Ercol to be far more comfortable than our old base. It is very good quality and matches our beech effect fitted furniture very well. Assembly was fairly easy, although they are being a bit optimistic to say it will take 20 mins to assemble. 17 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bed! This is a really stylish piece of furniture and I am very pleased with my purchase. As expected John Lewis provided a faultless service. My only slightly negative comment would be that the colour of the bed is much lighter than the picture suggests. This does not, however, detract from its appeal. 02 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning mid-century design I've been looking at this bed for the last six months and having finally moved house the first thing I did was order it. The bed is stunning and is fits my love of mid-century design. As you'd expect it's incredibly sturdy and well-made and putting the bed together was simple. As a previous review mentioned the wood is lighter than in the images, so I would definitely recommend viewing in store if you get the chance. 21 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful & Timeless We took a leap of faith and bought this bed without actually seeing it other than online. We're very pleased that we did. The wood appears much lighter than it does on the screen, which is beautiful. It is such a stunning piece of furniture which blends perfectly with other furniture old and new alike. A happy customer! 09 August 2012
