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

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.

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.

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

I would like to get 2 single beds each with 2 drawers. We have limited access up a narrow stair case and will need each bed  to be in two pieces (or more) to get to go up the stairs.Can it then be constructed in the room? 

Answer: , Unfortunately the single Flaxby divan base will only come as one item that will measure 36 x 90 x 190cm. We are not able to offer this broken down into more than one unit. Kind Regards, Dreams

What weight will the drawers support on the 4x & 2-2 bases?

comfy sleep

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.



I bought this 2 weeks ago on the sales advice that as this mattress was made of natural fibres we would have a cooler nights sleep. Unfortunately we have not found this to be the case and in fact the opposite, as are old mattress which is now in the spare room is a lot cooler to sleep on. I feel that I have waisted our money listening to the salesperson and regret paying at least £400 more for a bed that doesn't provide a cool nights sleep.


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.



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!


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 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 :)


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!


Not good

Base delivered 4 weeks ago, poor quality, very light. The drawers are not on very strong runners, looks different from the one in the shop


Great base

Bought this a month ago and its perfect,just what i was looking for. Love the colour of the base and the gold ball wheels that match.


Good sleeps

I am really happy with my choice of bed it's a long time since I had a good night's sleep but I am sleeping really well.


Great Value for money.

extremely well made, drawer bottoms do not fall out when loaded, castors excellent, overall, well made solid base.


Great looking, strong base

Had already purchased a new mattress from yourselves. The base enhances the sleeping experience. Absolutely fabulous


Great draws
