Different Types and Design of Bed Base
Our beds are handcrafted with kiln-dried, FSC certified timber, cushioned with soft Dacron surrounds, and feature a superior ‘edge-to-edge’ sprung system which rivals the highest quality beds in the industry.
1 SPRUNG DIVAN BED BASE
A sprung divan base that usually features a top layer of springs that run from edge to edge to stop you rolling off the bed. The springs also act as a shock absorber, offering cushioned support and a more comfortable sleeping area.
2 SPRUNG OTTOMAN STORAGE BED BASE
This bed features a lift action, powered by gas strut. It is suitable for all our mattresses. The entire bed lifts up from the foot-end. Double, Queen, King, Super King and Emperor sizes are all split north to south.
3 PANEL BED BASE
A simple bed frame with a top, base, and two side panels. In other words, a panel bed is a bed with a four-wall frame. Thanks to the panel bed’s sturdy structure, they can use large sprung base mechanisms and heavier, more luxurious mattresses, making them perfect when it comes to quality and longevity.
4 PLATFORM BED BASE
A low-raised bed base/frame with a slatted wood, metal or even solid wood surface for the mattress to sit on. This surface means no box springs or sprung foundation and generally less comfortable.
Spring Technology – Olson and Baker’s specialist sprung technology firms the edges of the mattress above and helps to prevent rolling off from a ‘squashed’ edge. Our sprung beds offer optimum edge to edge comfort & support over the full width of the sleeping surface. A luxurious alternative to the common slatted support system.
100 Years of Experience – Our bed and headboard collection is handmade in Yorkshire by a small team of master upholsterers and seamstresses that bring a combined experience of over 100 years to the table.
