sleep softly: guide to custom upholstered beds

Custom upholstered beds

You spend about one-third of your life in bed. So why not buy a bed frame tailored to your sense of style? Upholstered beds are a cozy alternative to wood and metal frames, and our made-to-order fabric beds let you create the piece that’s exactly right for your room.

Why Buy an Upholstered Bed?

Not sure about leaving your wood or metal frame behind? Here’s why upholstered might be the best choice for you:

1. Comfort

If you spend non-sleeping hours in bed, an upholstered frame adds instant comfort. A soft, padded headboard lets you read in bed without a mountain of pillows behind you, and provides the perfect cushioned backdrop for watching TV or scrolling through your phone on lazy mornings.

2. Practicality

Upholstered beds are more paint-friendly, protecting walls from being rubbed by pillows. Unlike wood and metal headboards, upholstery is less likely to dent or gouge your walls. Keeping walls scrape-free makes it easy to play with different furniture arrangements in your room, and renters can be more confident in getting back their security deposit.

3. Style

With freedom to choose from hundreds of fabrics, upholstered beds let you make a distinct style statement. This is your opportunity to play with texture and colour. Choose the perfect shade to coordinate with surrounding furniture or add on-trend details like tufting and piping. Fabrics like velvet, faux leather and textured tweed can transform your bedroom from basic to beautiful.

Caring for Upholstered Beds

Like with a fabric sofa, an upholstered bed should be vacuumed regularly to prevent dust buildup. To prevent fading, position fabric beds in the shade or keep curtains drawn during the day. Our advice for pet-friendly sofas also applies to upholstered beds. Tightly woven, synthetic fabrics are more durable, easier to clean and less likely to snag on claws.
