Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegant, solid and value for money Needed a more solid frame for a new mattress, chose this to match other furniture. It looks good, the open base makes the room look bigger and it's straightforward to assemble. .but needs two people to do this. Good value for money, an elegant piece of furniture. 23 February 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by A stylish bed Very happy with this bed. The oak finish is really good and it's not difficult to put together. 17 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great bed shame about instructions We are very pleased with this bed great quality and look, but the instruction book had pages missing so we had to work out the construction by your self. 2 and a half hours later done! Please take note John Lewis( bed looks great thou ) 05 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid bed base Was easy to assemble and the workmanship was good quality. Take care when putting together as it is easy to tighten it all up only to find the bed is not truly square. A note to that effect would have been useful. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb! Absolutely delighted with this bed, so much better than our tired old divan. The John Lewis delivery guys easily negotiated our tight staircase to place the mattress and the bed in our bedroom ready for me to assemble. It's recommended that two people build the the bed, but I managed it on my own. Assembly is quite straight forward if you take your time. We love the design in beautiful oak and once built it's solid! No creaks or groans when you turn over. With our old bed my wife complained that if i moved in the night the whole bed would bounce and wake her up. Not with this bed. I think the double row of sprung slats helps to keep any movement confined to your own side. It's also practical. Clearance is good if you want to use under bed storage boxes. Also, unlike most cheaper beds it's solid enough not to need a centre support leg, which may get in the way. Roll the boxes out and you've got easy access underneath the bed with the hoover. We bought the bed together with the Kingsize John Lewis Natural Collection Linen 4000 Mattress. The combination has proved good and since arrival we've never slept better. In short, very pleased. 04 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and attractive bed frame This was delivered very shortly after I had ordered it and the very nice delivery men from John Lewis volunteered to put it together for me! It is very sturdy and I like the polished oak look. A good purchase. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking solid bedstead It looks good, solidly built, and no struts half way down makes cleaning under the bed easy. 04 August 2015
