John Lewis Kerala Bedstead, Rich Cherry, Double

Product information

The Kerala bedstead is made from solid rubberwood and rubberwood veneers, with a rich cherry lacquer for an understated, colonial look.

It has a slightly curved, slatted headboard and sprung beech slats which will add to the comfort of your mattress.

Coordinate with other pieces from the Kerala bedroom furniture range to complete the look. Kerala's grain detailing and occasional knotting adds to the authentic character, while dovetailed drawers on wooden runners, display a high level of craftsmanship.

Q & As

John Lewis Kerala Bedstead, Rich Cherry, Double 4.8 5 11 11
Nice A good looking and solid bedstead, which pairs nicely with a Vi Spring mattress. Like other reviewers, I bought this sight unseen and wasn't disappointed. I was concerned about the stain coming off on the mattress as previously mentioned however this problem seems to have been resolved: the wood where the mattress sits is unstained and I haven't noticed any marking as of yet. The reason I didn't give five stars for this product is because it is made of Rubber wood. Whilst is a hardwood, it's essentially a by-product that is used mostly in cheap imported furniture, that is sometimes sold as a 'sustainable choice'. I would have expected a more 'premium' wood for this price. That said it doesn't detract from its appearance too much or its functionality. I wish John Lewis would remove packing and take it away as standard with their furniture deliveries as it is problematic getting rid of the waste when you have bi-weekly recycling collections. 08 July 2014
Beautiful, stylish bed Easy to construct and a lovely bed once completed. Stylish, with a nice dark wood colour that complements the room. Shame it's in a guest bedroom! Great delivery service from John Lewis and very helpful men who carried the parts to the bedroom. Impeccable service! 20 December 2013
Lovely bedstead Very pleased with our new bedstead, everything you would expect and thank you to the two men who put the bed together efficiently and without fuss. It is appreciated when we get the product and the service we were promised. 14 September 2013
kerela bedstead rich cherry double I Bought this bed last August. Great bed, very solid can't fault the structure ..... However, have now found that the cherry dye from the surround of the bed frame has marked all four sides of the mattress. I Have now fixed masking tape around the inside of the frame. Despite this hiccup would be happy to buy another Kerala bed. 22 August 2013
Rich colour, sturdy and stylish My son assembled this bed for me without a problem. It looks smart and stylish in a guest bedroom. Its simple lines will work well with varied pieces including funky and antique items, for an eclectic look. The wood colour is rich and lovely. I may buy another for our other guest bedroom! 08 March 2013
Beautiful This is a beautiful product and of sound construction. We took advantage of the assembly service which was brilliant, and delivery was non-problematic. 19 December 2012
very good purchase Easy to assemble, very sturdy, good quality. recommend! 25 November 2012
Gorgeous! I bought this item online, never having seen it in real life. As such, I was a bit hesitant, however, I really liked the look of the 'Kerala range" photograph so delved in. I must say I am very glad I did, as I am exrtremely happy with the look and the quality of the Kerala bedstead (& other items in the range). We did have a glitch with one of the screws when it came to putting the bed together, but needless to say John Lewis's Customer Service was impeccable as usual - sending someone out at 9am the following morning to fix the issue and finish building the bed. We bought this item along with the bedside tables and chest of 6 drawers and the set looks very elegant. I would definitely recommend these items. 17 February 2012
