Beds of the Year 2017
With Christmas just around the corner and the new year looming, we’ve taken the opportunity to look back on 2017 and choose some of our favourite products. Our criteria ranged from products that we think represent the best in their class, offer the greatest quality, maybe they bring innovation to the sector or they simply offer great value for money.
As bed specialists we recommend lots of products to meet our customer’s varying needs throughout the year. Here we present what we think are the Beds of the Year 2017. If you like any of our recommendations you can view them in our Hoddesdon showroom and buy online or in-store.
Kensington Wing Storage Bedstead
The Kensington storage bed from Emporia has subtle wings on a luxurious buttoned headboard and lifts-up to reveal the very handy extra storage area underneath the mattress, combining a great looking bed with the practicality of extra, hidden storage.
We have chosen this example in stone as we think if offers a really classy ambiance, though other fabric colours are available. Being manufactured by Emporia, means that the design is unique to them and features the best quality materials, together with a superior fit and finish, including gas hydraulics to lift and lower the bed. It’s available as a 4ft6" double bed, 5ft king size bed and 6ft super king size bed.
Harrison Onyx 7700
No Bed of the Year collection would be complete without a bed from Harrison.
The Harrison Onyx 7700 represents a real innovation in both the bed frame and the mattress. The bed frame is what Harrison’s call a True Edge Base and features 2,500 pocket springs in addition to those in the mattress that work together to deliver the exact comfort level that you require.
The mattress features Harrison’s unique Revolution spring system, with 5,200 Revolution and HD springs. The Revolution system features a smaller spring sitting inside a larger one, offering two levels of firmness and adding to the life and performance the mattress. In addition, the High Density springs work independently, adapting to your body shape.
The innovation doesn’t end there either, as the mattress also features Harrison’s Warm Side/Cool Side technology where you use one side of the mattress in Winter and the other in the Summer months to help regulate your body temperature all year round.
If you’re looking for the King of beds, then we think we may just have found it in the Harrison Onyx 7700.
Edburgh Upholstered Bed
Time Living is a well-respected British bed manufacturer and so we felt compelled to feature an example of one of their beds which all feature the very highest quality, but at a price that belies that quality.
When it comes to style and value for money, you cannot beat the Time Living Edburgh bed frame. Upholstered in a luxurious soft fabric the Edburgh provides understated elegance to the bedroom. It features a sleek headboard with side wings, paired with a neatly rounded foot board. All this style doesn’t mean you miss out on comfort as the bed frame comes with solid wooden corner feet and a sprung slatted base for added comfort.
The Edburgh bed frame is available as just a frame or can be combined with a range of mattresses including an Orthopaedic Open Coil mattress, 1200 Pocket Sprung mattress, Memory Pocket 1200 mattress, Memory Foam Premier mattress, Memory Cool 70 mattress or the 1000 Luxury Memory Pocket mattress.
Whichever you choose, the Edburgh represents great quality at a great value for money price, guaranteeing its place n our list of Beds of the Year.
YOU Perfect Mattresses
Not strictly a bed and not just one product, we’ve broken our rules (well they’re guidelines really) to include the YOU Perfect range of mattresses from Breasley.
Numbered from No.1 to No.10, the YOU Perfect mattress range is in our list of Beds of the Year because they offer innovation and value for money and can transform your sleep overnight.
As bed specialists, we recommend that you allocate the majority of your budget to your mattress as that will have the biggest impact on whether or not you get good quality sleep. So if you perhaps can’t afford a complete bed, buying a YOU Perfect Mattress might be the ideal compromise.
The YOU Perfect mattress range features 10 different comfort options to choose from, making it easy to find a perfect fit to achieve the level of comfort and support you want. Plus you have the re-assurance of a 10 year structural guarantee and the offer of a 100 night sleep trial in the comfort of your own home.
Your YOU mattress comes perfectly packaged and presented in a box just over a metre high, which you can buy in-store or have delivered to your door. It’s quick, easy and convenient and one of our recommendations!
Lanchester Storage Bed
Our final recommendation in our Beds of the Year 2017 list is the Lanchester Storage bed from Kaydian, one of the UK’s largest upholstered bedstead suppliers. Kaydian offer an impressive collection of individual upholstered bed frames ranging from traditional and transitional through to contemporary design in a range of leather, faux and fabric covers.
For our final pick, we’re focussing on opulence! The opulent head board of the Lanchester is a beautiful feature of this ultra-stylish ottoman bed. It’s not all style without substance though, as the bed features a unique lift-up system incorporating a new superior strength 10 mm thick floating floor storage area, and elegant hardwood feet.
The Lanchester is available as a 4’6” Double bed and 5’ King size and is finished in Artemis Elephant Grey.
