Storage Bed Sale – Get your hands on our clearance

As most of you may know, Furl aren’t known for offering discount or having a sale. We promise that it’s not because we are being mean, but because we are being fair. Of course the ‘are you having a storage bed sale’ question is one that we get asked a lot. And our answer for it is quite simple really. We design and make to order, so we don’t have lots of stock to have a sale with.

However we do have a few items that sometimes end up on the shelf. Not because they are any less loved. They have usually even been especially designed by our in house design team, so are often pretty trendy too! The reason they end up on the shelf, is because they have either been made for our showroom or for our photoshoots. So we have now added them to our very own version of a storage bed sale – our clearance page.

Storage Bed Sale – what does this really mean?

So lets get calling it our clearance page from now on, because really that’s what it is. As we make to order, most of our products are made on an 8 week lead time. Some of them come with the option for an express delivery, which speeds them up, but costs a little more. But we hear you need something even sooner – so check out our clearance page and we can have anything on there delivered to you in about 2 weeks. We know they might not be quite what you really wanted, so we’ve thrown in a little discount to make you love them nevertheless. And what do we really want anyways?! To have a lovely new, good quality storage bed – now that’s a given.

Not only do we have lovely discount and speedy deliveries for our clearance storage beds, but we also have our sofa beds, tables and wall beds on our clearance page. Just remember, there is only one of each item listed available. So once they are gone, they’re gone.

If our clearance items aren’t quite what you were after, have a play around on our design and order section and build your own storage bed.

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.

 

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
    need.

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.

Wall Beds Comfortable for Every Night Use

Just because something is space saving it doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on its comfort or function. Wall beds are space saving, there is no doubt about that, when its closed it has virtually no impact on the available floor space in your room, the typical footprint of a wall bed is just the depth of the cabinet, always less than 45cm and often much slimmer.  Naturally, with something so sleek you might expect the mattress to be very thin, after all it has to fit inside the cabinet along with all the bed mechanism etc.   Most wall bed designs have a limited range of mattresses that will fit within the wall bed usually they are not more than 18cm deep, not that there’s anything wrong with an 18cm mattress, but the choice you get is quite limited and often you’re tied to buying the mattress from the wall bed retailer.

Wall Bed Mattresses
Wall Bed Mattresses any size, depth and type

As with all the products in the furl range, we approach things a little differently, we’re able to do this because we make everything we sell (there are a few exceptions) so can  put a lot of thought into the design, function, its daily use and the durability of every new product we introduce. The Furl wall bed at first glance looks like any other high quality wall bed online but take a closer look and you’ll see some subtle differences which add to the comfort that you’ll really appreciate.  Our wall beds are suitable for any mattress size, type and depth.  You are not limited by the standard 18cm mattress most wall beds are designed for.  so yes, you can have a 20cm, 25cm and deeper pocket sprung, latex or memory foam mattresses in your wall bed.

Having made storage beds since 2007, we know a lot about quality beds design and the support structure needed under the mattress, we know what makes a bed comfortable. We decided to use the tried and tested sprung slated system in our wall beds, the birch slats are gently sprung to work with your mattress.  Our slats are adjustable so you can adjust the firmness under the lumbar area of your mattress, naturally each sleeping side can be adjusted independently.

We never liked the straps that hold the mattress on wall beds, they prevent you being able to make the bed properly or tuck in the sheets, we also don’t like the fact you can feel them under  the bedding when you’re sleeping, we had to find a better more practical way to secure the mattress to the moving frame. So, without divulging too much detail here, the furl wall bed is strapless, we’ve designed a clever way to hold the mattress in place that you don’t see or feel.

Space Saving is in our DNA, and in our Wall Beds

Like our storage bed and sofa bed designs, space saving is at the heart of everything we do, why should furniture take up more space than it needs to?   Our storage beds have very slim frames so that they take up as little space in the room as necessary and the same applies to our wall bed, the frame of the cabinet has been made as compact as possible, our frames are just 30mm thick which both save space but also looks (and is) very solid.

Conserving space does not mean you have to sacrifice comfort! In order to get a good night’s sleep, you need a comfortable quality mattress on a sturdy well supported frame.  Make the most of your space with a wall bed from furl, come and see the range at our London showroom.

Choosing a Spare Bed. Wall bed, Storage Bed or Sofa Bed?

If you’re lucky enough to have a spare room you’ve got extra space that can be used in a variety of ways – I love the idea of having a spare room all beautifully made up ready for guests, and if you have regular guests then thats ideal, if however you have a bed in the spare room that is only used a few times a year you’re missing a real opportunity create more living space in your home, and more space equals a better happier home life.

Most people have a favourite spot in their home, its the space you retreat to when you need time on your own, its that space by the window on a comfy chair that you curl into with a good book – a place that is all about ‘me-time’, it’s for quiet time when the kids have gone to school and your partner is at the gym… there’s something lovely about being at home on your own and having a few moments to call your own, it may only last for a few minutes but its absolutely necessary to keep the home life balance.

You could just put a lovely arm chair in the spare room (if you’ve got the space) and hide in there when the mood takes you or you could re-think the spare room and create an amazing space that increases the living area in your home and gives you a room that’s multifunctional, of course you still need a bed and if you value you guests it needs to be a good one, one that can be used every night if needed, there are a few options to consider, here are my thoughts:

Wall Beds

Wall-BedThere’s something very James Bond about the transformation of a hidden space in the wall that turns into the unexpected – for brief moment you’re a secret agent ready to take control or an hijacked nuclear satellite and save the world… until you realise its just a bed!

Wall beds, are also known as Murphy Beds and Pull Down beds are a brilliant spare room option as they have a very small foot print which gives you the freedom to use all the floor space in the room.  This give you space for sofas, tables and home entertainment.  Modern wall beds are safe, easy to open and have the same quality and choice of mattresses as regular beds, there is no difference in sleep comfort to that of a quality regular bed.

Wall-Bed-ShelvesClever wall bed design now includes built in shelving, perfect to use for books and precious ornaments you want to see but need to have out of reach of small hands….  Wall beds can also have a built in desk, so your spare room can become an office too.  The clever design of wall beds mean that the shelves and desk stay flat when the bed is deployed, so you don’t need to worry about tidying your desk or removing the items on the shelves when its a bed.

Sofa Beds

Milano Sofa Bed in GreySofa Beds are an ideal spare room bed replacement and with a quality sofa bed the sleep experience of your guests in not compromised.   Putting a sofa bed in your spare room lets you create a living space (or snug?) that doubles up as a second living room, put a TV, music system  in there too and if you add in a clever coffee table (that doubles as desk or table) and you’ll have a room that can fulfil a multitude of roles for the whole family.

Sofa-Bed-Spare-RoomSwapping the bed for a sofa beds in a spare room adds a lovely cosy extra room that you’ll appreciate next time a major sporting event is on the TV!   Quality sofa beds are comfortable as a sofa and have a choice of mattresses and now come in all proper bed sizes sofa beds can be used for every night use.
