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.

I cannot recommend FURL highly enough. Their service is exemplary and I am delighted with the quality of the sofa bed I have purchased. It is stylish, substantial and easy to fold/unfold, but most importantly, it is supremely comfortable as a bed (and as a sofa of course). Guests regularly report that they have had the best night's sleep in ages!

The FURL sofa bed we bought performs precisely as we had hoped it would: it is comfortable as a sofa, and with the very slim arms we chose it still unfolds into a full-width double bed. It is easy to unfold, and has proven to be as comfortable as a regular bed for my parents (now in their 70s) to use during stays of several weeks with us.

The bed is extremely spacious and comfortable. The storage space allows to storage massive suitcases, which is something I was struggling to find as I live in a small flat. Something I wonder though, is in case I move from this flat, how could I take the bed with me as it was installed by furl and the bed did not come with installation instructions so Im still wondering if For a fee, firl could do it? Thanks

I bought my sofa bed about a year ago and I am extremely happy with my choice. I opted for a 1.40 meter wide classic sofa bed with a wooden fabric and a foam mattress. It looks as perfect as it did when I first bought it. The fabric is hard wearing and of great quality. We have used the sofa bed on several occasions this year and my friend and family guests have always given it great reviews. My only regret is that I decided against a version that includes rolls as the sofa is so heavy that I cannot move it by myself even for an inch.

I love the bed we purchased from Furl. The 0% finance agreement made payments manageable and the storage is fantastic.

I am beyond thrilled that I bought my Furl bed. I looked for a long time at storage beds and found some that were cheaper. A friend of mine said it was worth spending the money and it totally is. The bed looks amazing first of all, not huge or chunky like some of the others on the market. The quality is amazing - I use the storage daily and it's so easy to use and opens and closes easily. The sheer amount of storage is incredible too, I can't quite believe I coped without it. Delivery was great and quick and the guys put it together in my bedroom brilliantly. I cannot recommend them enough. (PS I am not on the payroll or affiliated to them in any way!!)

We bought a sofa bed and a storage bed two years ago and they have both been great. The sofa bed was made to custom dimensions so fits perfectly in the space we had for it and is very comfortable as a bed - our guests have all remarked on it and we have slept in it ourselves while sharing a room with our baby. The team who installed them were also very helpful despite some difficulties getting the furniture into our flat. Although they are a bit expensive this is definitely reflected in the quality of the products - our sofa bed from FURL has stood the test of time much better than a sofa bed we bought from another supplier at the same time for a different room. We would definitely purchase from FURL again.

We absolutely love our bed - it is beautiful - and the bed was set up in a very quick and professional way - the young man wore shoe protection and explained everything to us very clearly.

In addition to Furl's user-friendly website, there is the choice of seeing the actual furniture in a large unit in London. This is great, as you can try out the sofa before you commit to buying it. The service is excellent and the choice of fabrics is wide. We ended up choosing the sofa bed we liked with our own choice of fabric. The delivery date was spot on, as promised! My guests cannot believe how comfortable the bed is, considering that sofa beds tend to not be comfortable as a bed or a sofa. It is comfortable in both instances. I highly recommend Furl for its efficiency and great customer service.

Had my sofa bed just over a year. It's the best purchase I think I've made in a very long time. The sofa is comfortable and the bed is great. The only thing I wish I had added was wheels. I have 2 dogs and it would make it easier to clean under. If you still thinking about buying just go for it.

This is the second storage bed from furl, the 1st was very good and the 2nd even better! the only reason for change was to accommodate the children on the weekend mornings. There is slightly more support for the base now and they have finished the lower edges to look very good!?

I searched high and low for an ottoman in a certain size and colour. I eventually had one made to measure by Furl. It's a great quality product and I'm very happy with it! Great service.
