the website has been taken down now so no good HD pics but this type of thing…

doesn't look much, but its 30cm depth of space in the ottoman and it's space saving as the frame doesn't protrude past the width of the mattress. Headboard also isn't too thick and is low enough for me to place the bed under a window bay and not obstruct it.
Also added bonus' of Warren Evans is that the beds were hand made in London.

I had a tempur one which was similar feeling but did not have the feet

I think it was this one though I think our head board was a bit simpler if I recall rightly

A few pages back there was a few talking about mattresses, I'm not into those memory foam and latex things but has anyone tried Herdy sleep? not cheep for a mattress in a box but 6000 pocket sprung with a wool cotton and cashmere mix filling sounds good, they seem to be getting good reviews and can pay monthly.

Have had a king size ottoman for 3 months, a friend of mine has had his for over 2 years.
No problems so far, seem sturdy enough and the hydraulic arms on the ottomans are still going strong.

cheers for all the suggestions…

Seenmy - Checked out the Tempur in John Lewis last night. The sides seemed to bow out, which meant you could basically see into the storage space. Thought it must be poorly put together in store, but it was on both sides, so seems it is part of the design. Puzzled

sydneyking - Vispring… checked them out. Laughing out loud

Seventyfour… those are probably the closest that i'm going to find. cheers.

In general the standard of bed design in the UK is shocking. Compared to west elm or even pottery barn in the states, even la daroute in france offers a better range of beds than john lewis.

Warren Evans and Multiyork going bust in the past 3 months doesnt help…


Does anyone know which if any of the Muji stores have the beds on display?
I know the Carnaby store has the 'storage bed' on display downstairs, but the platform bed looks good with storage option too…

Are you short? Their beds are short.

How much would a builder charge in London to knock out some of a wall and add in a new lintel in preparation to stick a large bifold in, A grand ?
