Hand made storage beds with optional headboards from the UK

 

Do you ever consider how set in our ways we are in this country? How, for example, if we’re making tea we add milk to the cup before pouring in the water, yet if it’s coffee the milk must be added after? (I’m sure there’s a reason!). Well in the same way have you noticed how most beds are sold with headboards? Not everyone wants a headboard though. And if it’s difficult to buy an ordinary bed without a headboard, it’s even more difficult to buy an ottoman bed without one.

In fact headboards (and their opposite number the foot, or spragging board) have been around for as long as beds have. Historically they were purely functional – there to keep draughts at bay and create a space between the bed and its occupants and cold, damp bedroom walls. Hence they were mainly made from wood as wood doesn’t get as cold as stone. Have a look at Wikipedia if you’re keen to find out more.

Practical, Stylish Storage Beds without headboards

That was then though and this is now and, while headboards do serve to keep the pillows in place, in many ways these days they’re decorative and so not essential. And in fact many people don’t want one at all.

There are many reasons you may not want a headboard. Perhaps the bed is going into a tight alcove, or the bed is part of a fitted bedroom suite. Perhaps the bed is under a window or there is a particular feature of the wall that it would be a shame to hide behind a headboard. Or it could be a question of cost – or even that you simply don’t want one. Don’t like them, that’s the end of it. Here at Furl®, that’s just fine.

Many beds and almost all ottoman storage beds are sold with the headboard as part of the package. Often the only option is to take it off once you’ve got it and then store it yourself (at least if you have a storage bed you could keep it inside!). We want you to have what you want though, and only what you want. So we sell our storage beds with or without a headboard. In fact, you could always start off without and then add one later if that was what you wanted – all of our storage beds have the fixings so adding a headboard at a later date is simple.

We specialise in beautiful wood, leather and fabric storage beds – and whether or not you choose to have a headboard is entirely up to you. Because we make all of our beds ourselves in our own workshops you can have exactly what you want when you want it. Our beds aren’t shipped in as part of a kit. That way we (and you) have complete flexibility.

It is easy to use the website and design your bed. This is the second bed we have purchased. They are high quality, very well made, and look very stylish. I wish more of the fabrics were on line to choose from, but other than that very good.

The sofa bed arrived exactly as we had ordered it after using the easy to navigate website. It arrived on time and the installation was performed efficiently and quickly by the two delivery men. We love the colour, the ease of changing from sofa to bed and vice versa and most of all, the mattress, praised by our guests as being extremely comfortable. Would recommend Furl to everyone looking for a top class sofa bed.

The sofa itself fits well into the room and is comfortable. My grown up kids think the bed is really good and have no complaints against the previous double bed we had in the spare bedroom. It is easy beyond belief to put up and down.

The sofa bed is exactly what we wanted as we designed it ourselves. I had to use it as my main bed for several weeks and it was exceptionally comfortable; much firmer than any other memory foam mattress I have used, but still with enough 'give' (I have had some discs removed, so this is extremely important for me). The delivery service was excellent - we couldn't have asked for anything more. The sofa was expensive, but worth every penny and the service was premium.

We recently bought 2 storage beds from Furl and are very happy with them. They are elegantly designed and sturdy products (we went for the oak version). Further the choice of mattresses on offer is good. The beds are relatively expensive but we feel they will serve us well for a long time. Further the reception at their showroom was excellent. The lady was extremely knowledgeable about Furl products range and very patient to take us through the various permutations possible and answer our very many questions. Strongly recommended

I bought a one-person sofa bed for my grandchildren coming from Switzerland to visit me in London. I am perfectly satisfied with the product you delivered. My grandson told me that he slept in the sofa bed as well as in his bed in Lausanne. Thanks to your expertise I can offer my grandchildren one more reason to come to London to visit me. I must say that the quality of your material is exceptional. The delivery and the assembly were professional and oustanding as well. FURL is an effective and reliable firm.

We visited the Showroom which had all storage beds on display. Immediately fell in love with the Illusion Storage Bed. The showroom has many kinds of fabric/leather to choose from and we went with a very specific leather. The sales staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgable. When the bed was ready for dispatch the assembly team consisted of 2 members, both were efficient and clean. The bed and headboard were up to a very high quality. We have a heavy mattress and the lifting mechanism is very strong, not too heavy to lift upwards. For a double size storage bed the Illusion can fit a lot of items. Overall, we are very pleased with the professional service, quality of the bed frame, detailing of the headboard and look of the finished product. Highly recommend FURL storage beds for the overall experience is first rate.

Exceptional service, and great buying experience: the people in the show room are knowledgeable, elegant and not pushy. Delivery at the very minute it was planned to happen despite our ordering date being on the tight side. Friendly people to deliver. High quality sofa bed that is in our guest room; really use to use, pillows and duvet hide in the arms of the sofa and it takes a second to open and close. And so so comfortable. When we repainted our bedroom we slept on the sofa bed and found we didn't want to sleep in our bed any more after that. So now we will probably buy a new bed and mattress from Furl. Seriously recommend.
