Really nice alternative to a divan
Having previously ordered a new pocket-sprung mattress, I decided to go the whole hog and get a new bed to go under it!
Our bedroom's not the roomiest and as much as I like a traditional wooden bed, most would have encroached too much into the available space at the foot. The Sullivan Storage Bed looked a really good alternative and I was convinced primarily by the reviews; the pictures on the website don't really do it justice and our nearest store is quite some distance away.
The bed was delivered in around three weeks; just about within the time period quoted when I placed the order, though it took some prompting with Customer Service to get a date out of the supplier. The two gentlemen who delivered and assembled the bed were very friendly and considerate. It took them about 45 minutes from start to finish. Be aware that the supplier won't take your old bed away.
I'm pleased to say that it's very well made and looks lovely. I was glad to see that there's a full-height central spine, so the mattress is really well supported. The drawers are on full-extension steel runners and work very well.
The bed doesn't have castors at all and, because there's a lot of contact with the floor, it takes some serious effort to shift it; particularly with a heavy mattress on the top.
The mattress sits slightly inside the frame and where the corners of the mattress are radiused, you can see through the support slats. This might be a route for dust to get into the end drawers, but I don't expect it to be a significant issue. Just something to be aware of.
I chose the version of this bed without the headboard because our new mattress is 38cm deep and I was concerned that the headboard would not be tall enough to offer any meaningful support once the mattress and a couple of pillows were on. Instead, I got some wall-mounting brackets and fixed our old headboard directly to the wall. It works very nicely.
All-in-all, I'm very pleased.

Pleased with storage
Really pleased with this product and the delivery and the men putting it together were quick and pleasant and once again JL service was excellent.. The bed looks solid and bed and the refresh mattress I bought were excellent and I am pleased with my purchase. The storage drawers were smooth to open and a big bonus to store my bedlinen etc.,

Stylish, practical and comfortable
This bed has so much going for it. I searched for ages for similar but couldn't find anything that came anywhere near this bed for stylish, practical comfort.

homely, solid and practical
I shopped on the internet for a while before I found this bed and I am very happy with my buy.The quality is good, the wood is thick, the drawers slide easily and of course there is plenty of storage space.Its looking good and homely( I personally did not get the headboard so I can't comment on that). And the icing on the cake is that you can get a standard double size mattress of your choice and all the bed clothes and pillows to go with it from the same store.Oh and I nearly forgot, they assemble it for you,easy!

Ideal for the space
Having moved into a small flat, we are very short of space but the storage drawers under this bed work very well. There are also little side tables, and everything opens easily. The people who delivered it put it all together for me which was useful too.
And it's comfortable!

Nice design with lots of storage
The design is really nice and is very well built. However after 4 months, my 4 years old jump into the bed and broke one of the slats. The drawers are very big so you have room for lots of storage.
