What Makes The Classic Newark Headboard Great?

I decided to go from a slatted frame bed to a divan its still a double bed frame but so much more compact and also decided to have the divan drawers for storage which have lots of room and also the style and quality is great not to mention how comfy it is too Delivery was as the expected time and daye with the delivery crew being so polite and helpful and very neat as I had paid extra for the bed to be assembled so all oackaging was taken Would definately recommend Dreams and the admin team

Upholstered in fabric

Padded for comfort

Padding seperates the spring structure from yourself and the core of the mattress. This is necessary because while the spring structure may offer decent support, that is not the same thing as comfort. The padding in this instance is to help aid in the comfort factor.

Great service

I ordered a new mattress online which was simple and straightforward with a date for delivery quickly given. I also requested removal of the old mattress and was sent packaging for it well in advance. The delivery crew were very helpful and smartly attired. The mattress itself is extremely comfortable and enables me to attain a great nights sleep.


My New Bed

Went to the store to have a look around, but was followed everywhere by sales people, so decided to purchase online. Was easy to do , had text with delivery time and arrived as per text. Bed is fine , easy to assemble and my mattress fits . Very happy with it and would recommend. But it would be nice if headboard was in the same colour.


Head over heels!

I brought this headboard to go with the new Trundle Bed I ordered at the same time. It is very well made, solid and sturdy. Having said that it looks sleek and stylish, no bars, ledges etc to gather dust! It sits very well on the base, overall I am Head Over Heels in love with my purchase.


Headboard for small double bed

Headboard exactly what we were looking for. Slightly disappointed that we had to wait as long for the headboard as we did for the bed - which was bought at a different store. As the bed had already arrived we ended up collecting the headboard from the depot ourselves.

I had been wonting a head board , went to their showroom , saw the one I wonted, came home and went onto their web site, found the finish , and ten days later got it delivered on time , I'm so pleased with it I would and will shop again there, so very happy


Excellent headboard and customer service

Really good material and colour. Fantastic service from Dreams. Deducted a star because the legs were a bit rough and no flexibility with holes for positioning. We sanded the legs and modified the position so no real issues.

Questions and Answers About Classic Newark Headboard

What type of fabric is the “fabric” option? Is it a canvas style or fake suede I can’t quite tell? Do you send out fabric samples or can I view this in store maybe? 

Answer: , The fabric option for the Newark headboard is a canvas woven style fabric, it is not similar to a fake suede. If you are located in Manchester this headboard can be viewed in the following stores: White City M16 0RP Asthon-Under-Lyne M34 5GJ Stockport SK1 2DW Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi, Does the headboard come with the fittings needed to attach this to any divan base?

Answer: Hello , Headboard bolts come with divan bases and not with the headboards. If you already have a divan base, it should have come with fixtures as they are made to fit the divan and the headboard fits in between the bolts. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

I need to attach the headboard to the wall as bed has no fittings for a headboard. Will this be suitable ?

Answer: , The Headboard is designed to be attached to a Bed Base. We would advise you do this as it can void any guarantee and may even be a health and safety hazard. If your base is not compatible then it might be worth looking into purchasing one. Kind Regards, Dreams

Is the headboard fabric as opposed to leather effect?

Answer: Hello , The Newark Beige headboard is made from fabric however we have a wide variety of Newark headboards with the option of faux leather which can be found here: I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

What would the estimated delivery time be if I were to order this in one of the "alternative colours" (silver, king size)?

Answer: Hello, This can be found out with the estimated delivery checker on the designated product page with your postal area. If you place a product through checkout before payment, you also get an exact date for delivery. Many thanks for the question.

We bought our divan from you last year we are now looking to add a headboard but by the looks of the bed there is no where to attach the headboard prongs?

Answer: , We would suggest that you contact our Customer Service Team who will be able to assist in identifying the type of divan base that you purchased and thus how best to attach one of our headboards. Kind Regards, Dreams

I have two twin beds that we often join together - is there a way for the headboards on each to link up?

Hi.  Does this headboard come in 2 pieces? (I live in a cottage and getting things up the stairs is a challenge!!)

Answer: , Unfortunately this headboard will only come in one piece, however the struts will be folded up rather being fixed into place - this will help with maneuvering the product. Kind Regards, Dreams

What is the centre distance between the two mounting struts?

Answer: Hi , This will depend on what size you are choosing. To work it out, simply subtract 6 inches from either end of the overall width of the board. We hope this helps you. Thank you for your question.

Is it safe to only use the top bolts when fixing the headboard to the divan? The bolts on the bottom are placed so it meets the skirting board, creating a space between the wall and the bed/headboard.

Answer: , The headboard can be attached to the divan with just the top bolts. However if you move the divan please keep in mind it will not be as secure. Kind regards, Dreams

I am buying a double divan to replace a single electric adjustable bed , will the guys delivering the new one dismantle and dispose of the old one and what is the cost of this service please ?
