The Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is sold by Dreams and manufactured by the internal brand called The Dreams Workshop. The Ealing is the start of a growing trend in the Dreams bed frame inventory that is seeing them branch out more and more toward ottoman storage options over traditional frames. The reasoning is simple however, Ottoman frames are not only more useful, thanks to their built in full-surface-area design, they're also more frequently higher reviewed. People simply love ottoman bed frames.
The Ealing is a complete solution, this means that not only do you get the frame and the ottoman solution underneath, you also get the pictured vertically-stitched padded headboard to rest your head against while watching TV or reading a book. The padding does a great job of offering depth and comfort to a stylish and textured fabric frame.
With a depth of 29cm, the storage on offer is impressive, giving more than ample room for linens, sheets and other bedding that you want to keep hidden. As far as practical storage solutions go, this one's a winner.
Reviews for the Ealing are good, with over 600+ at time of review and an impressive 96% consumer satisfaction. Customers remarked on the good space saving features of the base, while others commented on how easy it all fits together, making it an easy go-to for those that don't want to spend the day having to relearn DIY. Among the reviews surrounding ease of use were more positive tones surrounding the build quality and design, with many remarking on the modern and timeless design that aims to please.
Negative reviews were far harder to come buy with a small handful surrounding poor lead times through the pandemic. This is something that has since been rectified and while delivery times have never been particularly impressive with the Dreams lineup, they are at least now reflective of when you will receive the item. We had 2 more complaints surrounding a strong chemical smell that was lingering longer than the 24hours you would normally expect but both of these were from the same time period a year ago which would suggest potential storage issues surrounding one particular batch and not something indicative of further issues or scrutiny.
The Ealing Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is available in two different colours of grey and silver. I typically recommend the darker grey however, in the case of the Ealing the grey is perhaps a little two dark for my tastes and so the silver likely wins out for me.
