Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful sturdy bed An investment I will have for years. I put this together myself in about an hour - so easy to do and only a few steps so you can't go wrong. The oak is such a lovely colour - I'd say a little lighter than in the pictures - and will look good in any bedroom. I don't know why the other review says it's the smallest kingsize bed… my kingsize mattress fits perfectly well and has about half an inch either side if anything.( Buy cheap, buy twice. 03 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware. Probably the smallest King size I have slept in. !!! Why o why cant they make a proper bed the right size. Nice design but very disappointed with the size. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous! This was the bed we had been considering for a while and having purchased it we are so happy with it. It looks absolutely stunning and manages to be both contemporary and classic at the same time. I can't imagine ever tiring of this bed frame. We have been using our existing mattress with the bedstead and the difference in comfort (compared to the divan base we had) is remarkable. Getting up just got harder! 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Built to last This wonderful, solidly built bed now takes pride of place in our newly extended bedroom. It looks tasteful and welcoming. We just love it. Not only does it look good, it is extremely comfortable with the John Lewis mattress. Easy to construct with clear instructions. Delighted with this purchase. 10 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product and service Very well made bed, solidly constructed and comfortable. I am using the mattress from the old wooden bedstead without sprung slats and the difference is noticable. Used the John Lewis service to put together and most importantly take away the packaging. Service was pleasant and efficient. Very pleased with this purchase. 28 July 2013
