Your Questions, Answered

  • FAQ's

How do I choose the right sofa bed?

Follow our simple guide and choosing the right sofa bed will be easy.

1. Mark out the size of the sofa bed with either newspaper or masking tape to see how it will fill the space and work with your existing furniture.
2. Move it around to try alternative layouts.
3. Make sure that there is enough room to fully open the bed.
4. Order Fabric Samples to see and feel the leathers and fabrics you like in your own home.

How do I care for my sofa bed?

Our sofa beds are designed for many years of regular use both as a bed and a sofa. There are a few simple DOs and DON'TS you that will keep yours looking fabulous.
DO Vacuum your upholstery every few weeks to keep dust out of the fibres.
DO blot any spills immediately with white kitchen paper. Check our cleaning guides for fabric sofa beds and leather sofa beds.
DO avoid unnecessary exposure to direct sunlight. Cover or close blinds to avoid fading and weakening the fabric.
DO remove all bedding before closing the sofa bed.
DON'T force the mechanism. It should open and close smoothly - if it doesn't there's probably something stopping it.
DON'T use harsh chemicals or cleaning products - even gentle soap can leave a mark.
DON'T oil the mechanim, it's maintenance free.

Where is the mattress stored?

The mattress folds away with the bed and is stored within the frame. It doesn't have to be removed and won't be damaged by being folded.

Can you send me fabric samples?

Yes. We encourage you to request samples as there's no better way to see and feel the quality of our fabrics and leathers.

Which fabric is the most hardwearing?

A fabric's durability is measured using a standard test called the Martindale Rub Test. The higher the number the harder wearing the fabric will be, with a score of 30,000 considered the norm for general domestic use.

How does the headboard attach to the bed?

Our headboards can be attached either to the wall or the bed, we strongly recommend wall mounting as it looks better and does not add any length to the bed.. We do not attach the headboard to the wall but provide all the brackets you need. Integrated headboards attach to the bed with removable brackets.

How high up the wall does the headboard come?

Our headboards are not attached to the bed and can be placed at your ideal height, our standard headboard is 60cm tall.

How much space will I need?

You will need to allow for an additional 5cm over and above the standard bed size. For example to fit a King Size (150 x200cm) you will need a space of 155 x 205cm.

Our beds are heavy, and are difficult to move once you have filled it up. Should you need to move your bed regularly, we recommend you order castors with your storage bed.
