It started with a dream...

Like most successful businesses it all started with a simple idea, some late nights and a garage! From school I started a computer spares company, a job I enjoyed for almost 18 years - until one day I decided I wanted a change, I wanted to make things instead. This wasn’t an instant decision it started when I needed a new bed - I wanted a storage bed like I’d seen in Spain as a child not a bed with drawers so often found in the UK.

Excited by the lack of choice, I decided to make my own, and and then another… (everyone wanted one!) soon after I formed The Storage Bed Company. (now called Furl) Today we're based in our very own buildings and have a well thought out range of space saving furniture products most developed by us at our own in-house production facilities. In 2012 we opened a showroom in London.  The vans are busy too - making daily deliveries all over the UK.

We started in 2006 in a garage. Within a year the garage was too small so we moved into what seemed like a massive warehouse nearby, got our own vans and gave up the day jobs. The story continues...

I searched hard for options for a wall-bed - though expensive, Furl stood out for quality and the number of options. It was good to be able to tailor the RAL colour of the bed to match the RAL colour we'd used on adjoining walls and cupboards. I'm still wondering how to fit some small reading lights inside the frame - these would be a great feature to provide. Guests have been very comfortable on the pocket sprung mattress - our friends and relatives are now largely past sleeping on flimsy sofa beds. Thank you.

Expensive, but high quality. I've saved lots of space; the bed looks good, and I get a good nights sleep.

An excellent sofa bed that my guests have found to be very comfortable, and which is extremely easy to fold away (in seconds) to return the room to daytime use.

We received our sofa bed last December, just in time for my parents arriving for a visit. My dad, who has a bad back, said that it was the best sofa bed he's ever slept on. It's very comfortable. And as a sofa, it's great. It has stood the test of time with our four kids sitting on it on a daily basis. The only thing I would say could be improved upon would be with the matching throw cushions - a feather proof lining case to enclose the main cushion would be great as I have feathers poking through all the time. Otherwise, a fantastic piece of furniture. Thanks.

We absolutely love our Furl sofas. We have a 3 seater sofa bed and a matching 2 seater sofa. They are so comfortable and everyone who comes to stay and use the sofa bed say how comfortable it is. Both sofas have the aditional storage in the arms which means we can store the duvet and all pillows in the four arms, which is great as we only have a one bedroom flat with limited storage space.

Furl's beds are brilliantly and thoughtfully designed with super strong hydaulic mechanisms. They are very heavy so my one bit of advice is to get wheels instead of legs unless you're sure you never need to move your bed around the room!

Not just a sofa bed - a real sofa and a real bed that guests rave about. What more can I say. BRILLIANT

I wanted a sofa bed that was as comfortable a bed as it was a sofa, and vice versa. I also wanted the sofa to be very smart and good looking (not big and lumpy as they often are) and (critical) be able to install it in my (small) house. Furl put it together in situ and it is absolutely perfect.

Fantastic best base. Hugely capacious and very neat and practical. A rolls Royce of ottoman bed bases.

There is no doubt that the storage capacity of the beds is huge, they look good and the finish is good. Customer service was also good. However, I didn't realise that even the smallest model would look enormous in my Georgian bedroom and that they are extremely heavy. They are transported in pieces and assembled on the spot. I dread to think what will happen when I want to move. I doubt anyone will know how to dismantle the bed and it will be impossible to get it down the stairs in one piece. Also I was unable to get the slim mattress supplied within the months time limit which I had so I have a bulky mattress sitting on top of an already bulky bed. In short, the size and weight of the beds is an issue.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Duette sofa bed. Thanks so much to David and his team. I can't think of anything I don't like about it. It arrived on Thursday and now we've had two great nights sleep on the bed and have relaxed on the beautiful (and comfortable) sofa. I am so happy I choose the storage arms. I love the beautiful leather and the ease of how it transforms into a bed. The delivery team were top class in showing me the features and installing it in minutes. This couch is high end and worth every penny! Thank you so so so much.

Before purchasing, it was easy to request fabric samples and ask questions about designs. My sofa is now almost a year old, and has given quite a few guests an excellent night's sleep, as well as being tremendously comfortable for a night in, or just a bit of reading on a Sunday afternoon. We recently moved house, and getting the sofa from one place to another was really easy. Taking it apart, and putting it together again, is very simple, and the wheels are great feature.

Fabulous Bed and brilliant service from start to finish! I shopped around a bit but decided to go for quality and comfort and have someone come and install my bed. It's worth spending a bit more to get a decent well made bed and the headboard is awesome! The lift up divan design is also very good with loads of room. Very Happy! 😊

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.
