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

I hope you're ready to bid adieu to the squeaky door and slam of a drawer. The soft close option will make your home feel like it's the first day you moved in.

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. 

The divan base comprises of two halves split east to west, with the exception of the super king base which is split north to south and the single which is one complete base

Customer Reviews For The Flaxby Sprung Divan Base

Based on 136 review

Exceeded expectations

It exceeded our expecatations. It was the most expensive base in the shop so we did have to think twice about it but it really was worth the extra. We bought 3 in the end. 2 in grey and one in stone. We liked the fabric so much that we are trying to source it to reupholster our bedroom fabric to match. The under bed drawers are much stronger than average, got lots in there without worrying they will break. The only downside was the time in which we had to wait to receive it, it was delayed by a couple of months, but was worth the wait.


Excellent sales assistant Gavin met all our needs

I recently purchased a bed from dreams. I was greeted straight away with a very helpful member of staff who looked after me in a very professional manner from beginning to end of purchase. The dreams bed simulator was excellent at picking out your firmness of mattress to be picked. I was not pressurised in any manner to purchase a bed, but was simply assisted in every way to purchase a bed that would suit my needs. The salesman was called Gavin and he worked in the dreams shop in Dundee, I cannot recommend him highly enough.


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.


Comfortable but squeaking already after 5 months!!

We bought this divan base online during lockdown based on the good reviews as we couldn't try in store as shops were shut. Initially we were very pleased with the quality however after 5 months the base now speaks and creaks a lot with little movent, we don't think it will last a year! A shame because fabric and drawers and lovely. Also didn't come with headboard bolts which was asked Dreams for but never received.


Good quality and well made Divan

Had looked for a long time for the right bed to fit our room - in the end decided a Divan would be the way to go. Never had one before, however have been really pleased with the design, colour and quality of this item. Ours came with four drawers, which all have soft close. If I’m being picky, I'm sure the sales men said the drawers were reinforced, which I don’t think is the case. Overall, please with this bed.


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.



Really smart. The drawers are good quality and run very smoothly. The bed base is the most comfortable bed we have had so far, no more tossing and turning. This bed base replaced our old one we bought from Dreams in 2013, we didn't realise our old bed and worn until we got this one. The improvements made are great. The only downside is you don't want to get out of it on Monday mornings


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.


Lovely but a problem with headboard fixings

This is a lovely looking bed. The fabric is good quality and the frame seems to be reasonably well built. Unfortunately, we’ve had to order a replacement as out of the four headboard holes, only two of them were threaded, which isn’t sufficient for the size and weight of the matching headboard. I’m hoping the replacement will be okay.


My fabulous Flaxby

Absolutely beautiful bed base. Great to look at. I got the 2+2 drawer selection, this is great because the drawers at the top of the bed would’ve been blocked by my bedside cabinet. Definitely worth the extra bit of money. Dreams were brilliant to deal with. Explained all my options. Will be using Dreams from now on. Fabulous.


Really comfortable

I brought the divan base a month ago to use with a new Flaxby mattress. The sprung base makes so much difference. It’s very supportive and I have no longer had a bad back since purchasing this base. The base is really well made, the fabric is lovely. My only critique is that is it quite low to the ground, otherwise is superb!



Ordered quickly as my bed broke and was delivered in a reasonably time frame offered a great service to take away my old bed for a great price Quality of the bed was brilliant better than I expected for the price i paid Would definitely recommend to anybody that wants a super comfy bed which is quality for a great price.


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.


Sweet dreams

My wife and I have both noted a huge improvement in our sleeping. Despite my Sleep apnoea My sleep pattern is improved and I am definitely reaching a better quality rest waking earlier and feeling refreshed and more than ready to face the day. I actually look forward to bedtime now. Thanks Dreams.


Flaxby sprung bed base.

This base is beautifully upholstered and well sprung it has made a huge difference to my tempur mattress. It’s not the cheapest of bases but it’s quality and you get a really good guarantee l also like the fact that it’s British made by a Yorkshire firm, all in all lm extremely happy with my purchase.


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.


Smart looking Divan

Haad to get excited about a divan as once everything is fitted it tends not to be easy to see! But what can be seen looks good and being able to obtain half-drawers is very useful. This was bought as a set with a headboard and mattress and we are very pleased to have supported a UK Manufacturer.



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!


Well made

I bought this about two months ago as our previous divan base was falling apart. It gives much better support for the mattress and by doing this a much better night sleep for me. It is well made. The draws are slightly on the small side which is why 4 stars.


Flabby sprung divan base

I am very impressed with my divan base from Dreams.our last base had just two drawers and was very weak and flimsy.The drawers in this base are much more sturdier and the runners are good quality!Having the extra two drawers is great for storage.Very happy!


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


Very Happy with our new bed.

The quality of our new bed is top notch. We are really happy with it, the Divan base looks superb in our room and it of very good quality. We are also very happy to be supporting a UK manufacturer during these difficult times.


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.


My new bed

It’s the best bed ever. I was expecting to ‘have to get used to it’ BUT right from the very start I had the most amazing nights sleep & had way less aches & pains in the morning! Absolutely delighted. It is SO luxurious.


Great bed, shame they delivered the wrong wheels

Bed delivered with the wrong wheels which then took a further week to arrive - and we had already got rid of our existing bed! Dreams offered us a small discount in compensation but it was still a bit disappointing


Superb slumber

I bought this a month ago and I am so happy that I did because the sleep machine recommended a firmer mattress than I intended buying and it really paid off. I no longer wake in the morning with a stiff back.


Flaxby Divan Base

A solid and well constructed divan base,purchased with the 2draw option (operate very smoothly).Supplied castors ( orbital type) provide for easy movement of the complete bed. castors make


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

Comfortable bed

Very comfortable well made bed. The woollen topping is soft and luxurious to feel. So far my sleep has been good since getting the new bed. The drawers are well made with self closing finish.


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!


Comfort and storage all in one luxurious bed.

A true to size comfortable bed with the added bonus of the sprung divan. Comes with a choice of easy opening drawers with plenty of storage space which is a must for smaller bedrooms.


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.


Outstanding purchase.

This is by far the best mattress I have ever brought. It’s so comfortable and I’ve had great night sleep since my new mattress arrived. I would highly recommend this mattress.

Questions and Answers About Flaxby Sprung 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

Does it come with a mattress 

Answer: Hello , This is just the divan base which does not include a mattress. We have divan sets, which is the same base coupled with our all new natural Flaxby mattresses which can be seen here: http://www.dreams.co.uk/brands/flaxby/flaxby-divan-sets?limit=all Likewise, you can also buy this base and any mattress of your choice. Please note that our divan sets do not include a headboard. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

Is the Flaxby base available without drawers? I have a sleigh bed surround so drawers wouldn't be able to open. Also can you confirm if this is fully sprung edge to edge or do you also offer a sprung base with solid edge to reduce the feeling of roll-off?

Answer: , Thank you for getting in touch. Yes, there is a no drawer option on the Flaxby divan base. To answer your second question, the top of the base has 2000 mini springs, which gives it that luxurious feel. This is then supported by a firm base, so you should not feel a roll-off sensation. Kind regards, Dreams

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

Answer: , We would recommend no more than 15kg per drawer - if the drawers are loaded with any items heavier than this, the runners will become vulnerable to the added weight. Kind Regards, Dreams
