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.

Worth every penny.... On visiting the showroom, I was immediately impressed by the quality of the beds. But, like me, there must be people thinking, "This is not a cheap bed". Nevertheless, I thought this offered better value compared to anything else on the high street (especially if you are looking for a storage bed). Having had the max for a few weeks, I am still delighted with the sturdiness of the bed, superior lifting mechanism, and above all, how good it looks in my room as it was fully customised to my preferences. I know this will last a lifetime, and I have no regrets making this purchase. As mentioned by others, you can expect stellar service from the whole team, particularly the delivery + assembly team who took so much care when building the bed.

It has taken a couple of months to get round to writing this review, but the Furl "Play" is the most comfortable sofa bed we have ever slept on. It's easy to open, close and move around and is comfortable to sit on. The small double is big enough for 2 but the standard double would give more room. However, as we have limited space we didn't have room for a standard double. The website measurements are exact - we have less than an inch to spare on length and the bed fits perfectly when opened out. The men who came to fit it were very efficient and helpful.

I wanted to share how pleased I am with my bed and with my ottoman, they look beautiful and are very comfortable. In fact the bed has become the centrepiece of my bedroom and I finally had a good night sleep after months of sleeping with a mattress on the floor. I also want to say the team that came to do the installation were fantastic, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. So I am one happy customer!

The quality of the sofabed I bought is excellent. It is beautiful, the mechanism is easy to operate and the bed is extremely comfortable. The delivery went very smoothly. Not a cheap option but well worth it.

This has been a great shopping experience. David opened-up his showroom for us when we showed up without any notice. The full range of storage-bed was on display. We made our choice and the bed was delivered couple weeks later. We then realised that the model we had chosen did not fit our bedroom (much too big in term of volume - something we did not foresee in the full-of-space showroom), David was very kind in proposing the exchange into a lower bed frame. We now have the perfect bed we were looking for and it fits our room perfectly! Bed base and bed mattress are of high quality, the opening mechanism is robust and easy to manipulate. I did set-up the bed myself and it was very easy. Also, the nice delivery men from FURL gave me lots of tips that were very useful! We have been very satisfied of our entire shopping experience with FURL.

The item I purchased/ had made was beyond any expectation that I had. Although I had stated the specifics that I wanted the sofa bed itself was superb. I could not have wanted more.

Excellent bed, well made, looks terrific and has plenty of storage that is pretty well dust-proof. Installers were careful, friendly and efficient. The leather is fine quality and comfortable to lean against for reading. Overall 10 out of 10!

Great selection, fantastic product. Well worth the money. The single showroom makes it difficult but that is really the only drawback. Installation was easy and quick.

What a fantastic company. The bed is great...ingenious and well made. The mattress is wonderful I am so pleased with the whole thing I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. And that's not something I would always do. But in truth...they are a+ perfect. I would recommend you go to their showroom if you can. It's much better to see the actual quality which is very high..but also they have more fabric options available. A British triumph...

I am such a satisfied customer! The bed I purchased from you is the very first bed I've owned. Even though I'm well and truly middle aged, I've spent my life sleeping on mattresses on the floor and futon bases. I decided I deserved a beautiful bed. And, that it would make sense to get a storage bed, as I have a rather minimalist aesthetic. My research led me to Furl. I mean, there are a lot of much cheaper options, but I really wanted to have a beautiful and beautifully made storage bed. To be honest, the cost of my bed is above my pay scale, but I am so happy that I stretched and didn't settle for less. I've been sleeping in my new bed for the last 4 months and am completely in love with it. I spend a lot of time on my bed, not only for sleeping, but working on the laptop (I'm here now!) reading and watching TV. I don't have a sofa. BedWorld holds a lot of my life. Me, and my dog, Leonard, are very happy and very grateful. And, it was a super shopping experience: from going to the showroom for my one to one bed consult, through to the lovely men who came and built the bed in my room. Flawless. And a really nice feeling of a smaller business, that value the personal touch.

The sofa bed was exactly what it said it would be. Exceptionally well made, extremely comfortable to allow for every "night" use. The delivery was exactly in time and the bed was assembled and demonstrated fully before the installation team left. I would have no hesitation in recommending of purchasing from Furl in the future.
