Thanks for the suggestions, I forgot to mention that I need storage under the bed.
I like Gervasoni Double Bed with linen cover (it has storage built-in), but I am listening to other suggestions.

^we have they muji bed with a 180x200. Really doesn’t look that weird when the bed is made.. only a few cms difference. Reason being we bought it with a muji mattress but it was awful so had to change it for a silentnight studio

Am after a new large chest of drawers to replace an aging malm I have had for a years. Don’t mind spending £500ish - maybe a bit more for the right thing. After something like this swoon job below size and colour-wise - but dont find it hugely exciting at all so want to see what else is out there…

Furthermore is swoon quality ok? Got some made stuff and that isn’t the greatest but appreciate it’s pretty cheap

I looked at those drawers myself but swoon quality is supposed to be dire.
Have you looked at West elm? Expensive for what they are but some look alright and there's a decent sale on at the moment.

Might be a bed frame there too

How about some custom fronts on Ikea stuff - like https://superfront.com/nl/storage/inspiration

I have a Flou Nathalie, can't recommend it enough.

Comes in 180x200, storage space and linen too probably

Thanks for the suggestion - the Nathalie was on my short list with the double bed from Gervasoni - I suspected the Flou to be more expensive - I'll ask for a quote.

Like this. i've had the mags soft in dark green on my radar but our place came with a sofa and difficult to present the business case.
