What Makes The Flaxby Divan Base Great

Had this bed about 3 weeks,heavenly after replacing a bed many years old. No more back ache just the right balance not too firm or too soft, love the naturalness of its construction. always difficult trying in the shop hoping you have made the right choice, feels like a hotel bed at home. glad i bought the sprung base as well, although drawers not as big as my previous base had. husband only just tried it as has been in hospital but did not stir all night.

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

2,000 pocket springs

A good amount of pocket springs, more than average that will see your new mattress contour around your body offering the best combination of support and firmness

3 drawer storage options

Soft close drawers

All natural

For the 2 drawer divan option, the drawers can be positioned either at the head-end or foot-end as the headboard can be fixed at either end of the base.

In the 4 drawer divan option, the drawers appear either side.

Four drawer divans are not meant to be placed against the wall, the drawers are on all sides to maximise space and yield from the base itself. Keep this in mind if purchasing for a small room where this may be an issue

With the 2 + 2 drawer option, there are two regular sized drawers at one end and two continental drawers at the other. This design is great if you have bedside cabinets but still require drawer access.

Standard drawer: 79 (W) x 47 (L) x 13 (D) cm

Continental drawer: 33.5 (W) x 47 (L) x 13 (D) cm

Mattress and headboard not included

The mattress and headboard is not included allowing you to choose one that suits your needs or use one you already have. If you do need a mattress or headboard why not save money on shipping and order them all at once, you could even pick out your matching bedding.

Build time: 2 people | 20 minutes

You might be able to manage this alone but we'd recommend 2 people at a time of 20 minutes or so to build this product. 

Customer Reviews For The Flaxby Divan Base

Based on 57 review

Don’t get the draws

I waited 3 months for my lovely new bed. Which is gorgeous. But please do not pay for draws. I paid extra for 4 draws, of which one doesn’t shut properly. After trying to sort the problem a new piece was ordered. I’m still waiting. I paid for the bed in March, it’s now September. If you want this bed do not order the draws. Worst purchase I’ve made and will not be going to dreams for beds in other rooms.


Attentive and helpful communications

We ordered our bed shortly before we were due to move into a new house. Both the construction of the house and the manufacture of the bed were delayed because of the Coronavirus lockdown. Frequent updates from Dreams and the ease of changing delivery dates online meant that we were able to arrange things so that the delivery was made exactly when it was needed.


King size Flaxby divan base

Our Flaxby divan base a really high quality product. A solid, well build divan, with a cushioned top to give extra comfort. We chose 1 and half drawers, which provides us with maximum storage, but very easy access to all drawers. We would highly recommend the Flaxby divan base and would definitely be our first choice when we buy our next bed.


Well made divan base

This was delivered end January and I was a little concerned that we might have made a mistake ordering the 2+2 drawers and not the 4 drawer model. I needn’t have worried as it provides ample storage and the drawers pull out easily enough. More room round the bedside cabinet too with the smaller drawers up that end. Seems sturdy and robust.


Great divan base

The divan base is well made and easy to move on the casters. The drawers are a perfect size as the continental drawer is smaller and does not catch the bedside table, the larger drawer enables us to store bedding or other larger items should we wish to. The colour is a fabulous match for our choice of decor and bedding.


Great Nights Sleep!

We received this a few weeks ago now and it’s been nothing but perfect. We had been looking around for a spring base and this jumped out, great build quality, very easy to assemble, came right on time very quickly. Love the material and the hidden castors look great. Highly recommend this product.



I bought this bed base 2 weeks ago and i love it. I was given £350 from Macmillan to buy a bed base, as I was diagnosed with lung cancer in July.Radiotherapy treatment meant I was sleeping more during the day and mt then, bed base was broken. My new one is great!


Great look, well made and practical

This was easy to assemble. The product is clearly well made and looks great in my master bedroom. I don’t have a large room so having storage was important. The divan drawers are perfect for storing linen and towels. Very happy with the purchase.


A great nights sleep!

This is the first time we’ve ever had to buy a bed for our brand new first house and we couldn’t be happier with it. The delivery was tricky but it fit together very easily and looks really modern in our bedroom, would highly recommend!


Good looking

Had this for a couple of weeks, all OK. Well packaged with all bolts etc attached. Easy to fit castors and join sections together. Solid when mattress on, dies not move. Drawers are a superior build, solid, no hardboard bases


Great base

Bought this before lockdown and has only just been delivered as we were self isolating. It is very comfortable, very well made and the drawers are excellent. Drawers are good size, sturdy and easy to take out if we want to


divan base

this divan base is very good quality. the drawers open and close very smoothly. it was very easy to put together. the only slight problem were the stickers marking the castor screw holes which were put in the wrong place.


Great divan base

I bought the divan base a month ago and I am delighted with it. I was looking for a base that I could use the drawers easily with bedside cabinets. The drawers have an easy close feature too.


Good quality divan base

After using for several weeks, can confirm that this base has excellent build quality, and offers a good foundation whatever mattress is placed on top. Quite expensive, but definitely worth it


exspensive but worth it

Purchased yesterday very comfortable bed .Delivery great guys put divan together and took all the wrapping away .Also got two bottles of mist spay bottles for pillows which is a nice touch :)


Exceptional bed and well worth the search

We bought this just before Covid19 and as a result had to wait until this month for delivery but the wait was worth it. We have at last found the perfect match that suits both of our needs


Smart and practical

We brought this recently along with a new mattress. The lines are simple the draws runs so smoothly. Plenty of storage space which is always a good thing. Very pleased with our purchase.


Well made divan base.

The two drawer divan base was delivered a few days ago and very pleased with it. Very well constructed and easy to join the two parts together. The castors make the divan glide easily.



Very happy with it - good quality and so comfortable. I was sceptical when the salesperson told me that the bed base would make the mattress feel a bit softer - but it really is true!


Stylish and functional

This is my first new bed for 32 years. I loved my old one so much I could hardly bear to part with it, but this one has calmed my fears and given me an excellent night’s sleep.

Questions and Answers About Flaxby Divan Base

We would like to purchase a super king  but we are worried that we will struggle to get a package measuring 36x180x200cm up our stairs. Can the package be opened to take the pieces updaters to be built? Or is this the measurement of a solid bed part?

Answer: , These are the measurements of the half base. We do ask that you don't open the product as once out the packaging it is classed as a used item. The Product comes in 2 protective bags so they add very little on to the base itself. Maybe take a look at your made to measure range, we could look at alterative options. Speak to our telesales team or visit a local store and they can assist you with more information. Kind Regards, Dreams
