Storage Bed Experts are here to help you!

Are you sick of hearing different things about storage beds everywhere you go? Are you in dire need of storage bed experts to actually tell you the truth? As storage bed experts that have been making storage beds for over a decade, we certainly know a thing or two. So you really are in the right place! We’ve got your backs and want to shock you with a few things that you might not know about our storage beds.

The Air Storage Bed has 15cm and 30cm of storage. You can’t see the bigger storage either?
Shocking FACT Number One

Did you know that nothing can be lost underneath our Max Storage Bed? When we say nothing we actually mean nothing at all. So you know those times you drop that lipstick on the floor and never find it again? You actually wouldn’t loose it ever again if you had a Max Storage Bed! How, Why we hear you calling…

Max works with a very clever base to maximise storage. It actually has a plinth that runs all the way around the outside that means you can store all the way down to the floor inside. So even though the bed looks like it is off the floor, it isn’t. The clever plinth means that nothing can get underneath the bed, not even dust!

Jaw dropping fact number two

Our Illusion Storage Bed actually only has 10% less storage than our Max Storage Bed. (Max has the most storage at 35cm). To make this actually seem a little bit jaw dropping, here are two photographs. Now can you believe it? Even we couldn’t believe it!

question three – Is too much choice too much

Our beds are all made in Nottingham by our lovely workshop team and we make all our beds to order. That means quite simply that you decide what options to add on to your bed and we make it for you. How great is that?! There are hundreds of fabrics and leathers to choose from, as well as wood. Now some people think that too much choice is too much. However don’t worry – we have an Interior Designer at our showroom on hand to help you with your selections.

If you fancy having a play at home first, we have a brilliant ‘Design and Order’ section that can help you to visualise what your bed might look like. So you want to see a Max bed in a red fabric – here you go! Just remember that this is just a visual, and it is much better to actually come and look and feel the fabrics for yourself.

storage bed expertsStorage Bed Experts fact number four

We recommend that you actually come and visit the showroom to try lifting the mechanism. All of our beds have a strap provided for opening, however it is actually easier to lift it using just the mechanism. Initially, people aren’t too convinced, however it is true! By lifting the mechanism with two hands, you are bending your knees and lifting properly. It is only that initial lift that you have to support. The gas pistons they kick in and do the rest of the work for you. If your mattress is a heavy one, you might just need to give the mechanism a little nudge to open it to its full angle.

Grand Designs Live – Book your tickets here

We are officially on countdown to Grand Designs Live. Not sure if any of you managed to come and see our stand last year? However this year, it is twice as big and will be twice as fantastic. So, if you haven’t yet made a trip to our showroom, do not panic. You can visit us at the Excel in just 2 months and 22 days. See, we told you we were counting!

Now to those who don’t plan ahead, this may seem like ages away. But for those who love a good bargain, now is the time of the early bird ticket sales. Right now Grand Designs Live are giving a fantastic deal away – 2 tickets for £22 with the code GDL22.

Last year at Grand Designs Live, we met new friends, reminisced with old customers and had a week to remember. We opened and closed our wall beds around 200 times a day, and laughed every time sometime ran over to take off the glasses filled with water that they thought would fall over. With our clever mechanisms and cantilevering desk, your glasses of water can stay on the desk whilst the bed comes down. Now that is something that you know you just have to come and see for yourself.

So the show is on from the 29th April until the 7th May. Are you renovating your home and need new furniture? Are you looking for a way of turning a spare room back into a useable room for most of the year? Looking for a little more storage? Then our stand is absolutely the one to visit. Grand Designs Live has been one of the biggest interior inspiration and home renovating shows for years. We are so excited to be able to inspire you again this year.


Storage Tips – where to hide the presents

Just in case you didn’t know, we are absolutely mad in love with storage. All of us at Furl just love as much storage as one can get. Seeing as December arrives in 2 days time, we thought it might be an idea to give our storage tips on where to hide those presents.

storage tips - where to hide the gifts

Now we have always been good at hiding, I mean we grew up with storage beds! The best hiding places EVER in case you wanted to know. However, the downside of our brilliant hiding places meant that we always found the presents. Now, I never knew if that was a good thing or a bad thing. I mean it gave us time to prepare our ‘wow thank you so much’ face to the present we never wanted. Yes we got really really good at it. However, we know that you wouldn’t have bought anything but wonderful, so here are our storage tips and places that won’t be found.

storage tips at christmas

Storage Tips – The Old Kitchen Bin

A survey has revealed that two thirds of children will go searching for presents before Christmas day. That put the pressure on us to make sure we give you some good hiding tips! Most of our throw away items end up in the garage, or the loft just in case we might need them again. That rule seems to still apply with the kitchen bin. And, would you go routing through an old bin? The garage and the loft are one of the most popular places to keep gifts hidden away. So be clever by putting the presents in a black bin liner, tying it up and popping it into the old kitchen bin. Just make sure your partner doesn’t decide to through it away after all.

Storage Tips – The Car Boot

The survey also revealed that it wasn’t just the kids carrying out a pre Christmas search. So that got us thinking about where you could hide the gifts for your partner. If you don’t share a car, then the car boot is a brilliant place to hide presents. Make sure to pop the standard boot picnic blanket over the top of them. Also, ensure that your car is parked in a secure location. This we absolutely insist on. If you do share a car, then temporarily pack them into the boot on the way round to mum and dads house!

Storage Tips – The Storage Bed

Furl first became obsessed with storage, and in turn storage beds long before we started making them. We actually make a storage bed that is large enough to be able to store full sized suitcases. Just think how many presents you could fit into a large suitcase. And better still – lock the suitcase.

Despite the cut off date for pre-christmas 2016 delivery behind us, there is no time like now to prepare to next year! Head to our showroom in London to see just how brilliant our storage beds really are. Don’t worry, we will keep your secret safe. Your presents will stay hidden next year. Of course, because no one will know that your bed is a storage bed. Clever hey.

We will count down from 10 to 1, now go and hide those presents. Ready or not, here we come…

Bedroom Colour Schemes – which one would you choose?

Which colour scheme best suits your bedroom? Yes you absolutely can fit new bedroom colour schemes around the things you already have. We can’t ditch each item we own every time we want to change the design of our bedroom. For one, it just wouldn’t be feasible. A couple of weeks ago we shared this article by House to Home about bedroom colour schemes on our Twitter. They had a few clever ideas, and so we want to add to those with our take on bedroom schemes.

Different bedroom colour schemes create different moods and also work for different locations. Let’s say your house or apartment is in the middle of the city. You probably wouldn’t want to design your bedroom using a coastal theme. Well you could, but it wouldn’t really work unless you put a very clever city spin on coastal. Yet to be done, so you would be the first!

bedroom colour schemes
Exposed concrete, hot pink, dark woods, bronze and vibrant turquoise

City Chic

There are many types of decoration that fit for the city. House to Home told us to marry together two hot colours such as turquoise and pink, and we could not agree more! You don’t have to over do it, but if you are going to, the city is the place to do it. Subtle pops of colour will still bring the room to life. It is simple and cheap to change the colours of your walls and the cushions that you dress your bed with. So why not paint the wall behind your headboard in a bright colour. Then you can compliment it with cushions on the bed in the same shade or another hot colour.

If you are lucky and have space, you could even add in a cute bedroom chair in vibrant turquoise velvet. This would fit with a room that has exposed concrete or brick walls and hanging filament bulbs, like so many forever trending industrial places do. But these bold colours would fit just as well with a room featuring soft thick carpet, mirror and lots of trending copper or bronze.

Soft grey paint, walnut wood, lilac linen, cowhide rug and white shutters

Comforting Country

Country rooms don’t always have to be super rustic. Wood can still work in a contemporary take on original country styled bedrooms. It just needs to be softened slightly. Do this by adding in loads of soft fabrics. If you have a wooden floor, cover it with an oversized rug to take that edge of the rustic. Take away any wooden blinds from the windows and add in painted shutters for a slightly more contemporary feel.

Typically country rooms are often kept dark to keep them looking and feeling cozy. If you fancy adding a contemporary spin, then brighten it up with a soft shade of colour or a bright white lick of paint to the walls. Add a lilac throw to the end of the bed with a complimenting blanket box. All white bedding alongside soft grey walls and a huge textured hide on the floor really do work a treat for that grown up feel.

bedroom colour schemes
Off white linen, reclaimed wooden furniture, green bedlinen, rope details and striped accessories

Coastal Cool

With a coastal interior, you have to be careful not to end up with it looking a little twee. You can mix up the typical coastal bedroom colour schemes by going green and white instead of the more traditional blue and white. Reclaimed wooden shelves or storage units will add a touch of rustic but nothing too much. Upholster the bed and headboard in beautiful off white linen alongside pale green linen sheets and cushions. With pendant bedside lights now the craze, you could hang lights that feature rope. Add in circular shaped white accessories or mirrors framed with rope or the like to bring that nautical feel back into the room.

So it is very important to pick your bedroom scheme not only around the items you already have, but also around the location in which you are based.

Tips for getting a good nights sleep

This time of year is always a little bit tiring. It’s back to school, back to work after a summer holiday, back to jumpers and then abruptly back to shorts. Plus that horrible sudden realisation that Christmas is actually only 14 weeks away (dare we say that word yet!). Sleeping can be hard; especially when we cannot justify air-conditioning for the two nights a year we actually NEED it. So here are a couple of tips for getting a good nights sleep, and getting us through those holiday blues.

good nights sleep

The biggest question is how should we define a good nights sleep’? Waking up feeling refreshed and ready for the next day is just an absolute must. We shouldn’t expect any less than this, so start with these steps to be well on your way to a better night’s sleep.

Stick to a schedule.

Sticking to an actual schedule can sometimes be fairly farfetched. You have children, a high-pressured job or friends that don’t appreciate being forgotten about for weeks. You get it and so do we – 9PM bedtimes just sometimes aren’t possible. However the better your schedule, the better your rest will be. By going to bed and getting up at roughly the same time every day, your body will fall into place. Remain flexible though, as you don’t want to worry yourself if something changes. Perhaps designate a couple of days a week to later nights, so again your body can adjust.

Invest in a good quality bed and mattress.

The saying is correct; you truly do get what you pay for. We actually spend almost a third of our lives in our bed. When we say it like that, the investment doesn’t sound so bad. To really work it out, say your bed cost you £2,500 and you kept it for 8 years. It would actually work out at just a mere 86p per night. Much less than that cup of coffee you need to get yourself through every day. But of course, that is just the recommended length of time before you should replace your mattress, not your bed frame. It is highly likely, especially with a Furl storage bed that you would keep your frame for at least double the length of time. So all in all, it will actually cost you even less. Now it really doesn’t sound like a bad investment.

The quality of mattress and its suitability to how you sleep will also make a big difference to getting a good nights sleep. When choosing your mattress, don’t let anyone tell you which is the right mattress for you. We all move and sleep differently and so the only person that can decide which is best, is you. Test them for as long as you can, and try not to read too much about them before you test them. We make all of our customers have a lovely little lie down on all of our mattresses at the showroom before choosing. Don’t worry, we take any napping or falling asleep as a compliment.

good nights sleep

Wind down properly.

In the day and age of smart phones, tablets and the worst culprit, social media, it can be difficult to really wind down and rest before we sleep. Try and put your phone away a good thirty minutes before you plan on actually going to sleep. We know it’s hard for you to miss out on the Twitter latest, including our tips, tricks and tweets. But they will still be there for us all to see in the morning, and the scrolling motion certainly will not help us to rest. This is the same for any screen light – laptops and the television will engage our brain and a scary movie will most definitely not let us get to sleep quickly!

Try chatting with a partner or call a friend before sleeping. Reading, writing and talking are all brilliant ways of winding down. Writing down all of our worries is a great way of clearing our minds. Leave the notebook at your bedside for any light bulb moments you may have in the night. By being prepared, you won’t spend the rest of the night trying to remember that million-dollar idea.

Sleep like a log (dog)

We pride ourselves in being Storage Bed Experts, and know a lot about mattresses too. So if you need any more advice, come and visit us at the showroom. We will be happy to help contribute any more tips to those much-needed 8 hours, so you sleep like a log (dog).

Bed Dressing Ideas that will compete with Hotel Beds

Dressing a bed is important if you want to create a statement or feature within your bedroom. But we hear you, how are we supposed to know how many cushions or pillows are the right amount? We want the bed to look pretty, but without going too over the top. Of course, the last thing we want to do is spend hours removing cushions before we go to bed! Here are the dos and don’ts of bed dressing. Along with a few bed dressing ideas, you will soon be competing with those beautiful hotel beds we are all so fond of.

We gave a few bed dressing ideas in our blog about how to style your bedroom like an interior designer. The way that we dress our bed can be the make it or break it to designer status. Beginning with the optimum amount of cushions that are appropriate for a certain size of bed.

bed dressing ideas

How many cushions is the right amount?

Only to be used as a guideline as it shall all be relative to your style, add two cushions to Double bed. For a King size bed, add four cushions and to a Super King bed, add six cushions. You will want to add any extra cushions on top of the two to four pillows that you will actually need for sleeping. The more cushions you use, the more of a luxurious boutique bedroom feel you will create. Alternatively, if you don’t mind spending ten minutes undressing your bed at the end of a long day, then of course add in as many cushions as you like. I have seven cushions to a King Size bed– but I had to make a deal to remove and replace all of them myself every day!

What is the right way of placing cushions?

There is no right way of placing cushions to dress a bed, but there are ways of creating different styles. If your bedroom is a little Moroccan and Boho in its style, then you may want to place different sized cushions so they aren’t symmetric or in order to create a messy look. Making sure all of your cushions are different sizes will add to the eclectic look. You will also enhance this by ensuring they are all in different fabrics too.

bed dressing ideas

The most common way of placing cushions on the bed is in height order. If you are only going for two cushions, it is quite common to have oblong shaped ones, but square cushions would also work. When using four cushions it is often the case that you would have two different sizes. These consist of two large cushions and two smaller ones. Standing the pillows up, you would then add the two large followed by the smaller ones in front. All four cushions could be matching fabrics. Or the two large ones could be in a neutral fabric with the two smaller ones with a patterned texture. For those of you wanting six cushions, repeat the process as before. Then add in two oblong ones to the front, perhaps in the same fabric as the larger cushions.

Don’t match the colour of your throw to your bedding.

Adding on a throw to your bed in the same colour as your bedding is a waste of money. The point of having a throw is to make it stand out. This doesn’t have to mean going for a vibrant, bold colour or pattern. Just make sure that the shade is a contrast to the bedding colour. You can buy throws in all shapes and sizes. If you just want to dress the bed nicely but without too much hassle undressing, then perhaps consider a runner as opposed to a throw. They are much thinner and finish the look of bed nicely. Add in two matching cushions for a simple yet sophisticated appearance.

If you manage to find an oversized throw, you will find that the throw may actually work in the same colour as the bedding. If the throw reaches the floor on all sides of the bed, it will then contrast with the floor. Oversized throws create a modern luxury bedroom style.

Choosing the right fabric for pets

We certainly love our four legged friends at Furl, whom are more than welcome to visit the showroom, and so we understand that maintenance of sofas and even beds can sometimes be a bit of pain with them around. Not only do they shed fur, but along with mucky paws and jumping onto furniture they shouldn’t be, there is every chance that they could stain and damage your gear…but they are cute aren’t they! There are also certain things we can look out for, to be sure that we are choosing the right fabric for pets.

choosing the right fabric for pets

Heavy Duty Fabric

Now we have gone through a huge selection process with our fabrics for you already. We make sure that any fabric we offer is heavy-duty, of good quality and strong enough to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. It is of course very important that any fur from a cat brushing past your sofa or edge of the bed is easily brushed off, and that dirty paws from a sneaky dog that thought he would catch a chance at sleeping a night on the sofa can be wiped clean. So there are of course a few favourite fabrics when it comes to pets.

fabric for pets

Real Leather

Leather is easy to clean, with any mucky paw stains simply able to wipe off. With a huge array of colours to choose from, you needn’t have to stick with the traditional Chestnut Brown that we see so many items of leather upholstered furniture within. Leather will also be the fabric with the easiest maintenance, but it does come at a cost.

Faux Suede

Faux suede has a wonderfully luxurious look to it but is extremely heavy duty and tough too. It is resistant to scuffs and scrapes and Health-guard gives added protection against dust mites, mould and bacteria, perfect for keeping our pets healthy. Known as the ‘cat proof’ fabric, they shouldn’t be able to get their claws into it, and in turn will become disinterested with destroying it.


Wool is a surprisingly robust fabric and often used in airports, so we are pretty certain that if it can withstand airport traffic, it can cope with a couple of mischievous pets. Easy to vacuum away any malting hair, sumptuous wool is completely natural, renewable and sustainable.

Of course we have far more than these three fabrics to choose from at our showroom and dependent on your pet, the colour of their hair, the rooms in the house in which they might be allowed to roam all has a factor in what fabric you may choose. We do have an ability to order fabric samples from our website, but our full range of fabrics can be found at our Showroom in London, which is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays by appointment. You are more than welcome to bring your dog too!

Choosing the right fabric for pets

Extra Protection

Of course, the more protected your furniture is the better it will survive pet use! Our Guardsman fabric protection is a great way of protecting your investment piece of furniture that we want to follow with you from house to house. Not only does it prevent accidental spills (or any four legged dribble) from soaking in and therefore staining the fabric, but it’s also an insurance policy that will allow your sofa to be cleaned and if necessary re-upholstered. Guardsman is only available on our sofa beds – but this is because by the time your storage bed is dressed with duvet, pillows and throws, there is very little fabric on show, plus we have a brilliant removable fabric option for self-cleaning.

Our pets keep us going on the gloomiest of days, and I am sure you have found yourself ogling at a cutely dressed sausage dog somewhere on Instagram in the last couple of days! Our pets are with us for life too, along with our furniture and with a clever choice of fabric, keeping our houses clean with pets around needn’t be a struggle.

Guide on how to measure your space for a storage bed

Big furniture purchases don’t happen on a very regular basis and so if you are a little bit out of practice in the large furniture buying department, here is a guide on how to measure your space for a storage bed. You not only need to think about where the bed will be going, but also about access, so the bed fits the space like it was meant to be no matter what size the room.

Storage Bed measuring guide

How big?

Everyone always wants to fit the largest sized bed they possibly can into their bedroom, as it is of course the place we spend almost a third of our lives. Be mindful though, especially if you come to visit the beds at our showroom, because our ceilings are so high it can make them seem a little smaller than they might look in your room.

  • Write down all of the dimensions from our website
  • Be absolutely sure to measure out this space in your bedroom before making a purchase.

Top tip: The best way to measure is by masking taping the size of the bed out onto your floor.

  • Ideally you would like to have at least 50cm on either side of the bed, however if the space is tight you could just about settle for 30cm on one side (or both if you have to!).

Top Tip: When measuring, make sure you can still open any doors without them bumping into the bed.

Don’t panic if your space isn’t built yet! Send through a floor plan and one of our team will look at it for you.

Our storage beds are available in both standard British and Continental sizes. We make the frames as small as we can and as close to the mattress size as possible. Here are the measurements for both the mattresses and the frames in each size. Everything is made to order, so if none of the sizes below work for you, get in touch with us and we can make a bespoke frame and mattress to suit.

Bed Size guide

Of course if you decide to add on a headboard the frame size might become a little larger. You can have a headboard two ways, either Integrated or Non-Integrated. Non-Integrated will add nothing more onto the measurements, however if you do decide to go for an Integrated headboard, most will add on 6cm to the length apart from the Horizon which is a little chunkier and will add on 10cm more.

Top Tip: If you are trying to save space, or your space is limited, choose a Non-Integrated Headboard or no headboard at all.

guide on how to measure

Measuring Access 

Once you have chosen the size of bed that will fit into your room, measuring the access is of course is the next thing to do. However we like to make our deliveries very simple and so our Storage Beds at Furl are delivered in sections and assembled on site by our very own delivery team.

Never the less, measuring all of the access points to the room is still important, especially if you think your space is a little bit tricky.

  • Stairwells – How much height do you have? Do you think that there will be enough space to manoeuvre the parts around this space?
  • Doorways – Is the height of your door no smaller than the length of the bed? If it is then make sure the access is sizeable to manoeuvre the item in the other way.
  • It is important to consider any additional factors that may eat into your space, such as light fittings and radiators, and any pictures that may need to be taken off the walls during delivery.

Top Tip: The largest part of the bed will be half of the mechanism (so half the mattress size) unless you have ordered a headboard in which case this will be the largest part. Remember, the mechanism is only 4cm deep and the headboard usually only 6cm deep.

Perhaps you have a spiral staircase, or a very low ceiling with a narrow door to enter through. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, but for a bit of reassurance we have not been beaten yet. We ask for you to remove your old bed before we arrive. Our delivery team will bring your storage bed into the room, assemble it and take away all of the packaging with them.

Visit the Furl Showroom in London

You’re probably wondering why you have to make an appointment to see us?  Why we don’t have a regular shop on the high street you can walk into during normal shopping hours?
Let me explain…

Furl started in 2007 as an online business making storage beds and sofa beds from our workshops in Nottingham (where we’re still based).  Our products were an instant hit amongst those who appreciated high quality functional, practical furniture.  We quickly realised that most of our customers live in London and the surrounding areas and that you would really benefit from seeing our products for real, so in 2012 we decided to open a showroom in London.

Given our experience of visiting furniture stores on the high street and large retail outlets, where there’s lots to see but very few assistants who know anything detailed about the product and seem only interested in selling to maximise their commissions – we set out out be different.

Screen Shot 2016-03-10 at 09.48.07We found a lovely brand new unit in Wembley, which is easy to get to by car, (we’ve got plenty of free parking) Tube (Neasden on the Jubilee Line) and Bus (take any to IKEA wembley) and we set up our ‘shop’ there.  We’ve made in into a warm and inviting space that shows our products off beautifully.


Because we’re based in Nottingham we decided rather than employ someone to sit in the showroom everyday we’d make your shopping experience with us more personal.  So we decided to open two days a week on an appointment only basis.   We travel from Nottingham to see you and because we’re all involved in the making of the furniture we know the product intimately and with our solid understanding of the mechanics etc, we can answer any question you may have in a relaxed non-sales environment.

Our unique appointment system gives us the time to spend with you discussing your project or future plans, when you visit our showroom this is what you can expect:

  • A warm welcome, and a genuine ‘pleased to see you’ attitude
  • Personal attention in a relaxed environment
  • Full demonstration and explanation of our product range
  • Help choosing fabrics and colours
  • Expert advise from the designers
  • No sales waffle, lets just talk about what you really

Screen Shot 2016-03-10 at 09.48.07We want you to enjoy the experience of buying new furniture for your home, we are convinced that the time taken to choose the correct items is well spent, we encourage strict measuring of the space to ensure that you’re choosing the right furniture that not only fits the space but delivers the practical solution you need.

So, visiting us is not quite what you expect from a normal furniture store,  we feel it’s so much better, you get the personal attention we feel you deserve and we get to show off our brilliant products which we hope you’ll enjoy and find a space for in your home.

Beds and Sofas made from Wooly Jumpers

Have you ever wondered what happens to all the wool garments and material discarded by the fashion industry at the end of the their life?  We’re talking abut the unsold clothes that have been through the shops, outlets and bargain basements stores are often put into land fill, a tragic end to good usable products.

As a manufacturer of upholstered furniture we are responsible for the proper and disposal use of the fabrics we use, we’re pretty good and our modern manufacturing techniques cuts waste down to a minimum, the waste that is left over is sold on eBay and other shopping platforms to people who love to make crafts etc.  We like to think we’re doing our little bit for the environment and encouraging creativity beyond the first use of the fabric.

Storage Bed made from Salvaged Wool

We’ve always loved wool fabrics, they look and feel fantastic on our beds and sofa beds, best of all wool is one of the most sustainable of all fabrics and has very little impact on the environment so when we came across a fabric thats made from recycled wool salvaged from the fashion industry we got very excited.  Having made some products (now on display at our showroom) we’ve been very impressed with the quality as it give a beautifully soft finish with a tactile touch which is really hard wearing.  The range of colours is impressive too.  The fabric is made at a mill in Prato, Italy a district most famous for textiles which is also happens to be the most eco friendly in Italy.

Leaf by Kirby Design, is available on all our upholstered products, you can see the full range of this and other sustainable fabrics at our London showroom.
