Francis Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame


What Makes The Francis Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame Great?

We decided to “downsize” our bed frame, due to expecting our second baby and needing as much space and storage as possible. We have always loved having a superking, but the frame we previously had - Although beautiful - was very large. This ottoman bed enabled us to keep the size bed we wanted, whilst freeing up space and also adding extra storage! We are sleeping better than before (I think this is due to it being a little higher off the ground and offering a solid base for the mattress), the quality of the frame is lovely and the grey looks better in person than it does on the site which was another bonus! Although it is slightly time consuming putting it together, it’s very straight forward and worth it. Due to the fact I’m pregnant I couldn’t help my partner and he was able to complete the assembly in the time estimated. I would definitely recommend if you are a one man band putting this together that the extra charge for installation could be worth it, especially as the bed is heavy and very good quality so therefore if you have a weak back or something that could be affected, it will be a lot easier... to top it off, the Dreams staff delivering our bed were lovely and efficient, and adhered to the current social distancing policies very well.

Good bed - bit tough to build

I am happy with my new bed, it's a nice frame and looks fantastic and feels nice and sturdy so I am very happy with it. That said though I found the building of it a bit tough and the instructing lacking. For example on some of the step On the instructions it clearly states where the first set of screws go however it doesn't always clearly state where the other set goes - yes for the most part it is mirrored however in one instance this was not the case - so believe more detailed graphics might have been useful. I did think in the back of my head has the instructions been from the previous version of this bed which the updates from the screws and holes were slightly different. Also the manual wasnt explict about the timings of when some screws were to be tightened and when it needed to be loose then tightened later. Lastly I did wonder about the usefulness of the four small wooden legs along the spine under the- they barely touch the ground so really need extender legs to be useful. Over all it's a great bed and the build quality however I think the instructions manual needs updated.


Perfect! Space saver and very, VERY comfortable!

We honestly could not recommend this bed enough. It wasn't the bed we were originally after, but we spoke to a lovely man called Sarfraz in the Horwich store, and he demonstrated a few different options to us, and we just fell in love with this one. My partner and I are struggling to get out of bed in the mornings because it's so darn comfy. We teamed it with the Franklin Spring Mattress which Sarfraz also recommended, and I'm so pleased we went for it. The base of the bed has plenty of storage, which we definitely needed... and now that I've tarted up the bed with decorational pillows, (much to my fellas displeasure as he says "Beds are for sleeping in...we don't need fancy cushions"), they get placed in nicely before we hop into bed, so they don't get ruined. PERFECT! I only recommend this bed to you if you perhaps don't have a job where you have to be up super early... because this will ruin you. You will not want to get up - ever! It is my most favourite place to be. Thank you Sarfraz!


Handy storage and a great design.

We bought this along with a mattress, we asked for a delayed delivery to allow us to get part of the house including the guest bedroom decorated, Sue from Blackpool Dreams was so helpful. We delayed delivery a couple of months and then unfortunately Covid delayed our delivery further, thankfully it was only for the guest bedroom. We had assembly booked but again Covid wouldn’t allow for this so received a refund quickly. Delivery driver rang the day before and on the day of delivery to confirm everything, which impressed us. He dropped it off contact free and we set to work, we had it assembled in a couple of hours, no harder than any flat pack. It looks fantastic in our white and grey room. We’ve yet to finish the little touches to the room but feels so peaceful in there, so much so slept in there on the night it arrived. The ottoman storage is so handy and can’t imagine buying a bed with wasted space under again. We only wish it was a little deeper to hide more stuff. Thank you Dreams!


Easy to Assemble, Great Quality.

Note: This is for the small double that includes the electronic lift. The bed looks great, and is of a nice quality. It was easy to assemble, too, with the pieces slotting into place. A few bolts were a little tough to line up and tighten, but nothing major. The base boards are thin and I'm a little wary about putting too much weight on them, but they're fine for clothing and light goods, or heavy items with a broad weight distribution. The most complicated part was the electronic lifting mechanism, but it was well worth the effort (and extra cost). It lifts high and smooth and gives decent access to the foot end, and just looks neat rising up on its own. The head end has a bit less access due to the lifting angle and the mechanism, but that's the same for any ottoman that lifts in this way. Most importantly, the base for the mattress is solid and firm, and should support the firmness of the mattress. No slats, a solid board. I'm very satisfied with the purchase.


Easy to build and a good space saver

So I got this bed a few week's ago and I have to say I'm very please with my purchase. It only took me around an hour to make the bed on my own, though I would say it's probably safer to have someone help with all the lifting and so on. The instructions are very easy to understand and I believe there is even a video just incase. It came in 4 separate boxes but it's easy to find all the items. Also if like me you have a small room it doesn't need alot of space for it to be built. Over the past few weeks it's been overall very sturdy and holds more or less all of my clothes. The part the mattress stays on is more like a board as opposed to planks so you don't have to worry about them breaking too. It's also easy to open and close the bed too. Overall, it did take 2 weeks to arrive as I also brought a mattress I would say it was definitely worth the wait.


Beautifully designed Bed

I brought this bed recently for my sons new room. Firstly I have to say this is a really high quality bed and exactly what I was expecting from dreams. It was extremely easy to construct and took no long than the recommended time when I followed the instructions provided by dreams. The crafting of this bed is perfect, down to every little detail. The whole journey of finding a new perfect bed was made simple by the support/ advice of the dreams staff right down to the manufacturing and presentation of the bed. The mattress fits perfectly and the storage below has helped me hide away a lot of clutter from my sons room. The mechanics of the Ottoman frame and how it lifts is really smooth. I have recommended this bed to all my friends and family and I will definitely be back at dreams very soon. 10/10 great product!


Stylish and modern

We really are very pleased with our purchase of the Francis Grey Fabric Ottoman bed frame. The storage underneath could house a small family!! It was extremely easy to assemble and whilst I helped just a little, in the main my husband was able to put the frame together with ease. The size of the super king frame is perfect for our requirements and also fits wonderfully in our large bedroom. I love the style of this bed frame which gives our modern room the credit it deserves. Well done Dreams too for such fabulous service throughout our ‘contactless delivery’. The delivery men were great and gave us some very good tips on how to get the different packs upstairs and assembled. I will definitely use Dreams again and can highly recommend without hesitation!!


Excellent value for a great looking ottoman bed

We bought this bed a month ago after buying our first house and decorating. We need all the storage we can get! The bed was easy to assemble (two of you with a electric screwdriver/drill). Instructions were clear. We really like the fact that the bed is compact (no sides or end sticking out, flush with mattress). This meant that we could fit around the bed and our other furniture easily. The ottoman (manual) is very easy to use and the storage is absolutely fantastic! Your items are stored off the floor on solid platforms. This bed is quite high if you have restricted space where your headboard would go check the measurements. It feels very sturdy and of good quality. I would definitely buy this bed again for our other rooms. Please bring out in more colours!


Excellent ottoman bed highly recommended

We wanted an ottoman bed to replace a bed with drawers. The drawers were difficult to access. We did a lot of research and chose this one after reading the many positive reviews and visiting the friendly and helpful York store. Excellent delivery in Covid safe manner - it was well packed in 4 packages. Clear instructions and excellent quality parts made putting it together reasonably easy. It is a quality bed with excellent storage on a firm base. Just a little note that might be useful- when I got the bed constructed I couldn’t get the base down and thought there was a problem with the closing mechanism. It just needed much more pressure and once I’d opened and closed it 4 or 5 times it worked fine. An excellent ottoman bed and highly recommended.


Comfortable, practical, and looks great too!

I have had this bed for about 3 weeks now. It is the best bed I have ever had! I wish I'd upgraded sooner. I went for the electric ottoman option which is a great feature, and I'm delighted with the amount of space which is available underneath. All the clothes I had shoved into 4 drawers in my old bed takes up only a fraction of the overall space. The material is great quality and looks like it will be resilient too. The colour is just right and the whole bed looks modern and classic at the same time - it will never go out of fashion. I had great service from the staff in my local Dreams shop when I went to look at the bed in person, and it was delivered in less than a week. I would definitely buy from Dreams again.


Simple comfort

I bought this bed and the service has been excellent from start to finish. Order process was straight forward and once the payment was confirmed, I received emails advising the process for delivery with all the timescales. Prior to delivery I received another email with details of the time slot for my delivery and on the day of delivery another message confirming more or less the exact time. The delivery team arrived as advised and took all the packages to the room upstairs. The instructions in the packages were straight forward and easy to follow. Since having this bed I can honestly say that I have never slept this well. I tell everyone about the service and will definitely be purchasing in the future


Looks amazing & is exactly what we wanted

We really wanted an Ottoman bed for extra storage and would normally buy our furniture online. We had a look in the stores in the retail park even though we were sure we wouldn’t find what we wanted there. We found the Francis and loved how it looked, and the price(!), but discounted it because you can see the handle at the end of the bed. We went away and looked elsewhere but couldn’t find anything we liked better. So we came back for another look and decided it was definitely the one for us. The bottom sheet and duvet cover the handle anyway! The bed was easy to put together with 2 of us, and we absolutely love it! So much storage and it looks amazing! Great choice and definitely the right choice.


Black Faux Ottoman Kingsize Bed

Purchased in the January sales. Sales staff very friendly and helpfull whilst covering all options regards dimensions. Delivery date and time slot via txt worked well with no issues. All packaged parts sited on top of stairs as had the self assembly option. Delivery drivers were very helpfull regarding any assembly issues (video tutorial on line) etc. Assembly instructions were comprehensive and following the steps of assembly was pretty straight forward if followed in a logical fashion. Finished product is excellent with the added addition of huge underbed storage space which freed up a lot of cupboard space as well! Overall very pleased with the product and would highly recommend!


Lovely Bed

Recently purchased this bed in a king size for my duaghter's bedroom. Lovely quality and gorgeous looking. Delivery was great and delivery team was as nicest and helpful as can be. We have paid for assembly and that was done fast and easy. We have ordered the bed with a solid slats which are all connected with a piece of quality fabric string. Sadly we needed an approval from the delivery man to cut out one part of the string as it wasn't a perfect fitting and couldn't be assembled and stretched through the entire bed perfectly (luckily this does not show as it is under the mattress) I have since purchased 2 more beds and looking forward to receiving those as well.


Very stylish bed

My husband and I moved house with a much smaller room. We were able to order a small double which fits in our bedroom so much better than the old bed we had. Having the storage underneath makes a difference as we don’t have space for drawers to store bits. Even having the small double there is so much space in the ottoman part. I find it’s extremely handy as I can still slide bits under the bed. The base is certainly firmer than our old bed and we both find our mattress doesn’t sink so we’re not waking up stiff in the mornings. The bed is also easy to lift up but we’re still having fun getting it back down again. I think over time it will be easier.


Exceptional bed frame with a large storage space

We have the bed frame delivered on last Friday and it comes with 4 large boxes with the total weight approx. 90kg. The heavy bed frame structure makes it feel robust and sturdy. The design is nice and By reason of the heavy material, it requires two people to assemble the bed (exactly like what it describes on its website and on the instruction). However, the instruction is extremely easy to follow and it took us within 2 hours to finish the assembly. We are amazed by the quality of the bed. it sits on the ground firmly and the joints move smoothly when you are opening up the storage space. We feel wise to have bought this bed.


Excellent product, excellent service.

Totally thrilled with my purchase from Dreams and the service I received. I bought this Ottoman bed for my daughters bedroom as storage was also important. I couldn't have made a better purchase. Access to storage is easy, plentiful and the best thing is no-one knows it's there! I chose to pay for assembly rather than struggle with this myself. That was probably one of the best decisions I have made. The guys who delivered it had it sorted in no time, put everything in place and took all their packaging with them. They were polite and very respectful of my home. Well done Dreams. I'm a repeat customer for sure.


Great for Storage

Having recently moved into a new home with very little storage space for spare bedding, towels & clothes. The ottoman bed seemed the best solution. I'm so pleased we purchased this bed. We visited in store to see the beds first then ordered online. Delivery was around 3 weeks, which was longer than we hoped. Tip - count screws etc. before starting to build the bed as we were short of three screws, which weren't available in the DIY store. The spare screws plus extras were posted to us within a couple of days. The bed has a luxury hotel feel about it. It's a high bed, lifts well and the fabric is beautifully soft.


Sleep at last!

I have been suffering with back issues for years that effected my sleep. I realized that I needed to make significant changes in my life if things were to improve. I spent time researching beds and mattresses and it became apparent that one company stood out for quality and standard of service. The level of service received and quality of the bed I now have from Dreams has more than exceeded my expectations and most importantly I now have a good nights sleep at last!. I would not hesitate to recommend the Dreams to anyone thinking of buying a new bed and have in fact already done so with my elderly parents.


Really happy with the bed and the customer service

The bed frame was exactly as described, so really happy with it. The delivery and customer service was outstanding. The two men were very considerate of my home and insisted on covering their shoes when they walked in. They unpacked the bed in my chosen room and were more than happy to answer all my questions about the bed and explained exactly how it all works. They found the flat easily, despite it being a new converted flat and other company deliveries seemingly having real trouble! It was a really smooth process and am thankful for that so just wanted to take the time to write this to say thankyou!


Amazing ottoman bed with lots of space!

We got the ottoman bed in super kingsize (180cm x 200cm) and in the grey fabric and are very happy with it. It looks good and provides a lot of storage space underneath the bed. Especially the solid boards in the storage space are great as you can put even heavier things inside. The only issue we had was that the gas springs weren't strong enough to hold up the bed with our new mattress on (~60kg) but Dreams was very helpful and got the manufacturer to contact us about the matter. The manufacturer then issued stronger gas springs and everything is good now. Would definitely buy this bed again.


So spacious!

We bought the Francis ottoman bed a few weeks ago. It was the double bed and manual lift. I had been thing maybe the electric mode may suit as the bed is for my 9 year old child. I’m so glad I bought the manual lift. It is easy to use with a great handle and it’s pretty light considering it’s lifting the mattress and bedding too. Inside there is stack of space and I couldn’t believe how much fitted inside. Her bedroom is much tidier now as a result and it’s a really modern looking bed. The light grey material goes with loads of different decors and I’m absolutely delighted with this purchase.


Great bed, excellent storage!

I had to recently upgrade my bed and had set my heart on an ottoman bed. I was so thrilled when my bed arrived and we had put it together. The storage is great, the price was amazing (purchased when the bed was on special offer) and it looks fantastic! The only recent I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because after sleeping on the bed for just under 2 weeks I have noticed it has started to creak slightly. Also lifting up the bed to get to the underneath is not an easy thing to do especially if you have a heavy mattress. Overall, the good far outweigh the bad and I do love my new bed!


Pretty ace purchase.

We bought this bed for our newly renovated bedroom a good 2months ago. Its never easy buying online, you never know what your gunna get, but this bed does not disappoint!! It is solidy build, and the underbed storage is massively helpful!! I like that the storage has actual solid boards in the bottom, so the storage space is actually really useful. There is also air holes in the top board which your mattress goes on so the stuff stored can breathe. Love the colour as well and the headboard. It took one of us 2 hours to put up single handedly. Worth the month. Really happy with it


Great storage

I brought my Francis grey fabric ottoman bed a few weeks ago, it looks great, suits my room, the storage is amazing, keeps everything away & tidy. I paid the extra to get it made, worth every single penny, the delivery men were polite & removed their shoes without being asked, were quick & efficient, put my matress back on the bed, I'd struggled to move it, so was grateful I didn't have to put it back, they showed me how to open & close the bed for optimum use, they also took away all the packaging!! I really can't fault the service & the bed I purchased!


Super Ottoman Bed

Bought the bed a few weeks ago, it was delivered quickly about two weeks later. The delivery team were great, they took all the packages up to the bedroom. My wife and I assembled the bed in about an hour. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We are very pleased with the quality, the material is nice and the frame seems very rigid. One of the benefits of this bed is that it has a base, so it sits above the floor and the ottoman section is self contained. The lifting mechanism is weighted just right to enable easy opening and closing.


Good features

After going into Dreams a number of times and changing my mind over which bed and driving the sales man mad, of which nothing was too much trouble for the Leicester branch, they were absolutely lovely especially Nils, I decided on this bed always wanted to have an ottoman where I could store so much, was concerned I would not be able to lift it up but its a great bed and I can lift it ok and storage is fantastic. Colour of upholstery is perfect and very pleased. Delivery Men excellent worth paying to be assembled. Would deal again with Dreams Leicester.


Service is everything!

Ordering was so easy. Dreams keep you informed the entire way through and are great communicators from the sales team down to the delivery team. Craig and the boys were in touch from the morning to keep me informed of the delivery and even brought it bed up to the room it was due to be built. Couldn’t ask for more really. I feel compelled to leave this review because we bought from an online bed company just this year. It was cheap and fell apart rather quickly! This bed however is very very sturdy and has awesome storage! Keep it up guys


Good looks with ease of use!

I bought this ottoman bed from Dreams Lincoln. the sales assistant was friendly and knowledgable and there was no sales pressure. I refer the relaxed shopping experience. I paid the extra to have the bed built for me upon arrival. The delivery was soon after buying the bed. The bed is lovely looking, modern yet classy. The ottoman opens easily, I’ve got a bad back and even I can lift the bed easily! I’ve had ottomans in the past that are so cumbersome to lift. I’d certainly recommend this bed and the quick, efficient service at Dreams


Great ottoman for a great price!

We were looking for a sturdy ottoman for our spare room, and found this one online. It arrived and is seriously sturdy, with an amazing amount of space underneath! The material feels nice and is a good neutral grey colour (and is not shiney material- something we were worried about!) As usual, service from dreams has been outstanding, including the delivery service where they took their shoes off before coming into the house and gave us a very accurate two hour window in which to expect them. Basically- no brainer, get this bed!


Looks very Nice and brilliant for small rooms

I bought this about 2 weeks ago and got it delivered in only 7 days! Assembly was fairly fast, taking only 90 minutes, with two of us. Instructions straight forward, however, once you are told to place the metal bars up, they will feel quite stiff and so we thought there was something wrong with it but once you put on the rest of the pieces and the mattress, it does become easier to put up and down. I got the small double which is very spacious for one person. One down side I would say, is that its quite pricey but it’s worth it.


Only time will tell

The bed comes packed in four boxes so definitely should fit though any door in any household. When putting together apply common sense because manual says to put it together in a bit strange way, it took me around two hours to put it together on my own. The quality I would say is ok, both my wife and like it. Only time will tell how good this bed is. Took one star off because of the manual and overall value, the manual definitely could be put together better, and in terms of the bed for what it is I think its a bit expensive.


Stylish. Simple. Easy to follow instructions

We're not DIY specialists so was a little worried setting the bed up. Between the 2 of us, and an electric drill with the correct hex key (would've taken a whole day with the supplied key) , we had it set up in an hour and half. (I'm sure experts would've done it in less). Overall, really happy and relatively simple to set up. Great space to store under the bed. Probably would've gone electric version if we were in our 70s+. (It's a little heavy to lift once the mattress is on but nothing major) Thank you. Great bed!


Nice bed

Bought this bed for my daughter's bedroom, with a view to using the storage for towels, bedding etc. Arrived on time...the delivery guys were very polite and took their shoes off once inside. It took about an hour and a half from start to finish, to assemble the bed. It was a tad fiddly at times but not rocket science. Overall, we are delighted with the bed; it's sturdy and has lots of storage space. The whole experience with Dreams was excellent, everything went to plan and all staff were polite and helpful. All in all 5*


Stylish and solid

I bought 2 of these for my teenage daughters and they absolutely love them. The bed frames look fantastic and feel solid & robust. Good quality and have loads of storage space as well. Although a bit heavy, lifting the base to the storage area is easy enough. I paid to have these setup by Dreams and it was well worth the money - it took less than an hour for both - the guys were friendly & courteous. I would highly recommend this bed frame and am considering buying one myself when they time comes to replace my bed frame.


Great bed!

I am a first time home-owner and this is the first bed I've ever purchased. I bought it online so was really nervous about the quality, but I need not have worried! The bed is more beautiful than the pictures suggest! I love the high headboard and the ottoman storage. Best of all, it's really sturdy and so obviously of a high quality. It was really easy to assemble ourselves which I was also a little worried about. If you're thinking of buying this bed, don't hesitate. The great reviews are completely justified.



From the minute i walked in the door i was greeted with a smile and offered assistance.lovely friendly lady who was fantansic help. I cant remember the ladies name but she was German or from Germany. She knew her job i told the lady was i wanted she she showed me and my husband the beds .we even got a cuppa which was great as it was wet outside. The ordering service was easy and pleasent.even the bed delivery and assembly of the bed was perfect. I would highly recommend Dreams and i would use the service again.


Very sturdy high quality bed

I bought this as the new bed for my wife to be. I needed a bed with a high head board as she likes to read in bed. This didnt disappoint! When delivered, the lads said to take my time with the assembly as it can be tricky but I have to say it's the easiest bed I've put together. Great quality ottoman but it's quite stiff and heavy at first. Takes a bit of strength to close it for the first time but it will eventually ease off and is now very easy to use. Looks great, feels great and its absolutely solid!


Francis Grey Fabric Ottoman Bed Frame

I bought Francis Grey Fabric Ottoman Bed Frame in October for my bedroom and I am so happy to do that.The frame is high quality ,comfortable and save me a lot a space. On the same time I bought another brand bed frame for my son which is broken already. Now I bought Francis Grey Fabric Ottoman Bed Frame for him as well and he is so happy. I am giving 5 stars not only for for quality.I am giving 5 stars for price,comfort and design. I am so happy and reccomend it to a friend who ordered it as well


Great Bed - loads of storage!

We bought this about a month ago now and it's held up well. The black faux leather hides any small blemishes/scratches that it does get and whilst the manual ottoman lifting/lowering is a bit stiff if you're a bit shorter or weaker, you do get used to it. Has given us loads of storage space. :) We had the staff build it for us after reading a few of the reviews and they built it in just 12 minutes!! I'm fairly certain it would have taken us much longer so we're glad we chose that option.


Looks classy!

I bought this bed a month ago for my 18 year old daughter as she was having a complete bedroom makeover. It’s beautiful! It looks great in the room, very modern but that doesn’t take away from the quality. It’s very sturdy, I wasn’t sure about having an electric Ottoman as I thought there would be too much to wrong but I have been proved wrong. The company must be very sure of it too as they offer a very reasonable very long term guarantee on it all so I am confident it was a brilliant buy.


Sturdy bed

I ordered this bed because in most ottoman beds it's just a fabric netting inside the bed, but with this bed it is a solid piece of wood that let's you store heavier items underneath, I got the manual lifting system and it's so easy to pull up even when your bed is completely made up, I ordered the the service of having it made up for me, the men who did this were in and out within a hour, and both of them was so polite, I am really happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend.


Feels like I'm at a luxury hotel

It's my 10th night sleeping in bed and absolutely love it. I bought super king size and there is significant difference in size compared to my old King size. Furthermore the bed feels sturdy eg when sitting up in bed the headboard doesn't move and the ottoman function works great. I have all my summer clothes in the storage below. Instructions are simple and although I did one step wrong and found out 5 Steps later it was due to me not reading properly. Overall really glad I bought it.


Looks great and great for storage

I bought this for my daughter and her and I both love it! It looks lovely in her room (and not too much like office furniture like some of the darker greys) and the storage for sore bedding under the is a lifesaver in her smallish room. Super happy I purchased it and also that I paid the extra to have it put together in my house as I sure wouldn’t have been able to do it myself! This also helped as part arrived damaged but dreams came back 2 weeks later and replaced the damaged parts.


Stylish and easy to assemble

Absolutely love this bed! Looks lovely and stylish in the grey fabric. Assembly was easy although took a little longer as I started to assemble on my own before I got in some help with the heavier parts. One tip is once assembled the instructions tell you to lower the ottoman bed down before placing the mattress on, this did not work for me and it seemed the pistons were stuck. Once I placed the mattress on the frame the bed lowered very easily. I would definitely recommend this bed!



Ordered the bed, wasn’t too long to wait for delivery and was kept up to date with dispatch. I was weary about ordering a bed without seeing it, but I couldn’t have been happier, perfect size, superb quality and so much better than I expected. The manual access to under bed is great, storage room fab but it’s not that deep. Although a cabin sized suitcase will fit under it fine, to give you an idea. Headboard great. This bed looks good, very stylish and I would highly recommend.


Looks great plus huge storage space

We bought this bed for our spare room, specifically for the storage space. It was easy to assemble, looks great and appears to be of solid build. The storage space of really helpful and so easy to get to, even with a heavy memory foam mattress on top. Only word of caution is the very strong smell after removing the packaging. The bed has been in place for almost 2 weeks and the smell is still evident - I wouldn't want to sleep on the bed until the smell has reduced.


Very stylish!

My new bed frame and mattress were installed two weeks ago after purchasing them two weeks before. The simple lines of the frame and headboard are enhanced by little block feet giving an overall air of elegant simplicity. I opted for the motorised Ottoman which glides effortlessly up and down with the touch of a button! So no risk of back strain; the bed does it all! And just like an oyster shell reveals its pearl once open, generous storage space is revealed.


Stunning bed!

Paired with an Annison mattress, it feels like a 5* hotel room every night! Certainly a showpiece of the bedroom with ample storage space The electric lift is smooth, quiet and reasonably fast. There is no electric buzz from the power supply to the hydraulics The finish of the headboard and frame is excellent, I would definitely recommend! Only flaw I can think of is there seems to be no manual override for the electric lift - imagine losing the remote!


Beautiful and comfy

Got this in manual standard double, grey fabric. looks exactly like the pictures, is really comfy and has plenty of storage space under the mattress. The storage space has hard boards which is great to storage heavier items and lifts really easily so no need for it to be electric. We paid to have it assembled and the guys noticed one of the pieces was faulty, dreams were quick to solve the issue and had it all sorted fairly quickly. Really happy with it.


Great Bed Frame

I bought this about a month ago and has been great so far. Seems to be quite sturdy for lifting. Plenty of storage space underneath which is fantastic for us in a flat. Absolutely love the colour. Only part I would mention is that the fittings (screws/Alan Key) are a bit of a pain to tighten/use. The frame itself was slightly off so the part that lifts up did not sit straight with the bottom frame. We managed to resolve it but it took longer to put together.


Great Bed !!!

I bought this bed in black faux leather back in September. When it was delivered the delivery men were extremely helpful and careful when placing the boxes in my bedroom. Assembling the bed only took around 2 hours, instructions were very clear and simple to understand. The manual lift function is very good, easy to lift up and put back down. The overall appearance of this bed is very nice, modern and fits my room perfectly! Overall, very good product.


Great solid bed and Fantastic Service!

This bed is about a month old. Very easy to assemble (between 2 of us). Solid structure and I love it being off the floor with solid boards to put your stuff on underneath. On a side note, there was a small mark on the footboard when we unboxed it. I contacted Dreams and without any hesitation they organised a replacement and for it to be fitted when it was delivered meaning we could still use the bed. Great bed and great service. Thanks Dreams.


Superb Value For Money

When this item is delivered do not be feared with the amount of boxes it arrives in as they all protect the pieces perfectly. The quality of this bed is amazing and it is extremely strong and sturdy. Setting up took just over an hour as I wanted to take my time and get it right the first time. I cannot hesitate to recommend this ottoman bed with the manual lift as the gas struts supplied make lifting the bed a breeze for anyone. Well done Dreams!


Francis grey fabric ottoman bed

Lovely bed very pleased with the quality of this bed frame, excellent service from dreams. Great storage quite easy to put together but it does need two of you to put the solid base on,only thing was the price of this bed went down twice in two weeks after I’d order it, I no that’s a chance you take but from us ordering it it went down another £50 but we are pleased with it and if you are thinking to buy this don’t hesitate it’s a lovely bed


Works perfectly

I've been looking for a decent ottoman bed and I was careful becuase reading other reviews of other bed I was afraid of getting a naf one so I did some research and found this one on dreams works perfectly fits perfectly, it's a bit of a task to get together without that much space but it work fine and is really strong and made to last and the best thing I like about it is it has a solid base as I'm no skint chap and it holds my weight fine!


Excellent service and product quality

Excellent product, very sturdy. I opted for self assembly and was not disappointed, the instructions are very easy to follow with all parts coded clearly. It took about 75 minutes to assemble by myself. Delivery was on time, the delivery drivers were very polite and made sure that social distancing was observed. They also told me that an easy to follow assembly demonstration was available on YouTube. Would definitely buy from Dreams again.


Beautiful Bed

We decided to assemble this bed ourselves, the instructions stated 1.5hours so 2 hours later I can confirm its very easy to build with two of you. Once built we tested the storage function and it glides so easily up and down. Would high recommend, especially as our master bedroom is small and this is an ideal bed with ottoman storage without the base being to high/low and the storage function not being heavy like some others we viewed.


Comfy bed, great storage.

Bought to replace a metal-framed bed with a headboard you could not rest against comfortably, this is a comfy bed to sit-up in. As a flat boarded base; with my original mattress it is harder than its slated predecessor, but not uncomfortably so. The storage underneath is capacious and very accessible. I was able to assemble the bed single-handed but a second person would have been very helpful when bolting the gas struts to the base.


Francis ottoman king size bed

I bought this bed about a month ago. I can only think of good things to say ! It’s a well made , solid bed. Lovely light grey, soft material. Storage is amazingly good size. We got someone to put it together for us so can’t comment on instructions (save on arguments and frustration !). We had previously been let down by a different bed company but Dreams were great , the bed was delivered exactly on time and with great communication.


Great looking bed

I brought this bed just over two weeks ago and love it. I opted to build the bed myself, it was very straight forward with excellent and easy to understand instructions. One of the benefits as assembling it yourself is that you realise how sturdy it is and how good the quality of the materials used in this product. However one word of advice, the parts of this bed are very heavy and it really is a two person job to assemble it.


Superb service and a great product

I bought this bed for my son's bedroom. It is excellent value and a very well made product. The storage space under the bed is great for storage and the bed is easy to lift up. I paid extra for the assembly service which was worth every penny. The guys who delivered the bed were extremely polite and helpful and the bed was put together and put in place in no time at all. I would highly recommend this bed and this company.


Good delivery, exceptional quality, well done!!

I brought this bed a week ago, delivery was quick and on time. 9:30 was the scheduled delivery and they delivered on time, dead in 09:30. Very easy to assemble, will all tools provided. Beautiful styled bed which is extremely comfortable, my first night I had a full 9 hours of undisturbed sleep. Will gladly recommend. Big thanks to Ken and the delivery team, who where very professional. Thanks dreams for a good night sleep!!


solid bed frame and perfect design for storage

The Ottoman bed frame is very solid after easy assembly with my wife. It just take 1 hour to unpack and assembly with easy tools. The head board is solid but soft to support both of us anytime. The huge storage under the mattress is perfect to keep all the bedding.Even your bedroom is placed with carpet, this bed frame is convenient. You can easily move the bed with the 4 wooden stands while they station the bed frame firmly.


Great space saver

I brought 2 of these beds for my twin boys, who share a bedroom. They replaced their bunk beds as their first grown up beds. This meant more room was going to be taken up so was going to reduce the space in their room. However thanks to the Ottoman space so much of their toys and general stuff was easily packed under the bed which actually made the room look and feel bigger. Very well made and great delivery/ build service.


A great sturdy bed frame with plenty of storage

A month in and we are both very happy with the purchase. You do need to exert quite a bit of effort to lift it, but that is not really a problem. Just remember to lift from your knees! The build quality is excellent and we paid the extra to have it assembled, which we're glad we did as it did come in quite a few boxes. The delivery crew were excellent. Very polite, took off their shoes and cleared up after themselves.


Sturdy and feature packed

This bed arrived a while ago as an upgrade from a king sized mattress on the floor. Was a little overwhelmed by the size in our room but it's certainly worth it. The bed is sturdy, great build quality and the ottoman aspect is very helpful to hide all our stuff but with ease of access. We got it in the sale so even more value. The delivery guys assembled in no time, hopefully we find that easy when we move one day.


Well designed bed frame with great storage!

We bought this bed frame in the Bank holiday sale so got it for a great price! My husband put the bed frame together, the instructions were clear and it took a couple of hours. The main bed frame went together well and the handle is useful for lifting it up to reach the storage compartments, which have material covered wooden bases. Would recommend this bed frame as its well finished and looks good in our bedroom!


Quick installation and Visually Stunning

Bought this bed about a month ago. 2 weeks arrive but that was due to me and my partners work pattern. Staff arrived with the bed and were friendly as you like. They installed the bed quickly without hassle. Sits perfectly in the room and looks amazing with our current set up. Easily able to lift up the frame to get to the storage underneath which comes in handy for us! Would definitely recommend this to anyone!


Francis Ottoman - good value and big storage

I would recommend the Francis Ottoman to anyone looking for more storage and a higher mattress position. It comes flat packed and most of the assembly can be done by one person. The storage space under the bed is large and off the floor, you just need to lift the base several times to free up the pistons which were really stiff the first operation. Have found no problems with this and would definitely recommend.


The best purchase of the year

Brought it last month , amazing space for storage and the bed is so comfortable , One of the best purchses I made this year .... the mattress was the next best choice I made , Highly recommended and the shoppoing experience was good and realible ... no one will force you to purchase whats beyond your capacity or judge you based on the size of the purse !!! full satidsfaction and no disappointments guaranteed...


King Size ottoman

True to the website pictures and seems pretty sturdy so far. Good height. The lift works well and storage is generous - I like the solid base. There is some clearance under the bed which allows room to conceal extension leads etc; the downside is that it will get dusty. Too early to comment on durability hence 4 stars. I suspect the fake leather may be vulnerable to scratches. Overall I’m pleased with it.



Bought this bed and paid for assembly and removal also. Money well spent! Dream called be day before with a 2hr delivery slot, arrived at 09:30, old bed removed new bed assembled and delivery guys were gone by 09:50!!! Fabulous service. Now for the bed itself- looks fabulous with huge amounts of storage underneath for the price I highly recommend- other stores come in far more expensive- highly recommend


Great storage looks stylish

I bought this bed for my son who wanted to upgrade from a single divan. As space was limited in his room we needed additional storage - we had to downsize his wardrobe to accommodate the new bed. Drawers not an option as bed recessed. This bed solved all problems. Loads of storage space easily accessible with a simple lift. The frame and headboard in black has a lovely finish too. Very highly recommended.


Great build quality

We bought a king size. It came flat pack, but is very easy to build. It feels very sturdy and well made. It is quite heavy to lift - we have a very thick mattress. The storage underneath is fantastic. It has a base board inside the storage unit which can be easily removed in case you need to vacuum under the bed, or some other reason. It appears as thought I can be used without the base board if you want.



If you’re looking for the perfect ottoman bed, it’s this one. It is well worth the purchase. Amazing bed, material is super strong, build quality is impeccable. Easy to put together. The bed arrived in amazing time, the whole team at dreams were incredible. I can’t thank them enough. All I can really say is if you’re looking to upgrade your bed or get a new one, you should definitely consider this one!


Comfortable and practical bed

Bought a double for our son (manual opening version). We wanted an Ottoman for the additional storeage space it provides. It arrived in 4 boxes and I found it fairly easy to put together from the instructions provided. Needed a second pair of hands for a couple of parts but mostly put together on my own. It feels quite sturdy and looks smart in his room. We are all very pleased with the purchase.


Fantastic service and products

Purchased 2 beds within 3 days service in the shop was amazing on both visits, both employees knew there stuff and helped us choose the Wright products and even arranged delivery for same days despite we ordered on different days, when it came to delivery and assembly days could not fault it the guys were fantastic, both members of my household a delighted with there new beds and they look fab!


Sturdy and Great Design!

I brought this bed around a month ago for the guest bedroom, we knew we wanted an ottoman and I just love the Black Leather effect this bed has, the big Headboard also makes it look more premium. I wanted a bed where you couldn't see the slats so this was perfect. I would recommend this bed if you are looking for something that will provide additional storage but is also a fashionable style.


Great for storage

This bed is absolutely fantastic it is very sturdy well-made We had the dreams engineer put it all together for us which was a good idea because it was quite a job there is massive room underneath the bed it is easy to lift the bed up and down he’s got hydraulics so it stays up on the base of the bed absolutely sturdy this is definitely the bed for you specially if you’re on the larger side


Sturdy strong bed

Last month I bought this Bed and I was pretty impressed with the final product. The build-up was pretty easy and straightforward And the instructions Was easy to follow. I would suggest anyone to buy this bed. Because it's up of It's outstanding storage unit. The delivery team was fantastic And I was pretty impressed with them. So thank you dream I would definitely order from you again.


elegant, sturdy and easy to assemble

I purchased this bed as for the master bedroom. It looks great and makes you feel nice and high off the ground. The frame is very sturdy and super easy to put together if you've got any sense. You might need some muscles or a helper as a couple of pieces are heavy for one person. The fabric (grey) is nice and soft. Great vale for money compared ot other beds I looked at in this price range



I love this bed - amazing storage and great size. The best part about this bed is the delivery service though. It's the second bed I've bought from Dreams and the guys that have put the beds up have been a delight. I paid to get this one assembled and it was all done in 40 minutes. They even removed their shoes to come into the house. Absolutely great service and product. Well done Dreams.


Great bed with no excuse of an untidy room

As an occupant of a small flat, it was important to have a bed that fits in well but also offers additional storage options with its large under bed storage compartment which is easily accessed by the handle at the beds base. We also used the assembly service you provide and the bed was installed by two members of your team very quickly and efficiently. Cannot recommend this bed enough.


Couldn’t be happier

Had this bed for around a month. Was easy to assemble with two people. Really easy instructions. The bed itself is a great quality. We have a cheaper bed in our guest room and there is such a noticeable difference. The top of the ottoman is easy to lift and there is plenty of storage space. The big win for us was that this bed has a solid top rather than slats. Would highly recommend.


Lovely material, great storage

Bought this bed three weeks ago on a budget. This is for my first home and I absolutely love it. Great storage, relatively simple to put together but you definitely require a second person to help out. Personally prefer the fabric over the leather and it had a great feel to it. A great storage solution to a small house and I have no concerns over the base not supporting various boxes.


Great space saver.

I bought this bed a few weeks ago and it looks very stylish and the storage underneath is ample. Very well made and sturdy bed and the colour goes with anything no matter what your decor is. Extremely pleased with it and I am sleeping better now than I have in a long time. The piston system underneath to raise and lower bed base is strong and durable and very easy to lift and close.


My Ottoman Bed

Purchased this bed recently. Went into the shop. The salesman was very helpful and arranged delivery for the following week. It was delivered as promised and put together on site, all we had to do was put the bedding on and it was ready to use. It looks excellent in the room, it couldn't have been easier. Thanks to everyone involved in this very pleasurable shopping experience.


Very Spacious

I bought this online without seeing it at all in a showroom so was a bit dubious when it arrived. However I was amazed at how spacious it is so it has given me so much more storage space in the house which I desperately needed. I thought the headboard was a little higher than I would have chosen but it is not a problem at all. Delivery/fitters were quick, clean and very polite.


Great bed = happy daughter!

We bought the double version of this for our teenage daughter. There is a huge storage area underneath which is easy to access as the bed is not difficult to lift, and easily stays open; it does not need to be held while you fill the storage area. The bed is well-made and we are all very pleased the bed. Daughter loves the black faux leather look that she chose. Thank you, Dreams!


Good bed frame

Bought this a month back and opted extra for the assembly service. The two gentlemen who assembled for us were very nice and helpful. The bed frame itself was worth its money (got them on sale). The ottoman was good, feels sturdy and had a board (instead of a mesh) at the bottom. However the legs did leave some marks on the carpet when we moved the frame a bit. Overall a good buy.


Super Features

This superking size ottoman bed is the first of this type we have owned. It provides enormous storage in the base. The frame is excellent quality and looks superb with a great finish. The added feature of remote electric operation for lifting the mattress support to allow access to the storage is well worth the very reasonable extra cost. Would highly recommend this bed frame.


Great looking functional bed

The bed is very easy to put together and feels solidly built. It looks great now it is up, the pictures on the website do not really do it justice at all. I only saw the black leather version in store but opted for the grey fabric. The bed has a solid base instead of slats which provides a much more solid base and makes the bed as high as a divan bed, which is what I wanted.


Great for storage

We bought the electric version of this bed and it is effortless to raise and lower to get access to items stored below. Previously we had divan bed with four drawers for storage. To get access to all 4 we had to move bed and bedside cabinets and after some time the bottom of the drawers falls out due to weight of items. Now we press a button to arise and lower ... brilliant.


Great storage

Bought this for my 20 year old son who has moved back home from uni. It really gives him an extra wardrobe. Easy to lift. We were surprised that it was self assembly, given it is a divan base, and it took 2 people (competent DIYers) 2 hours to construct. Just worth being aware of. The advsntage is that this design of bed base could be put in our narrow staired loft room.



Great bed, sturdy but light at the same time. Finished to high degree but very little issues. Because of the colour, I'd say it's best to purchase this for grown ups rather than kids/teenagers but to get around it then it's best to buy the leather version of the bed. I wish the space in the storge was deeper but just couple of cm to fit more stuff in but that's minimal.


Great bed overall

I recently bought this bed from Dreams and I am not disappointed one bit with the purchase. Initially, I thought constructing the bed would be difficult, but the instructions provided along with the video tutorial made it a lot easier to do so. The under-bed storage is a very useful feature to this bed, along with the ease of access to it. Very happy with the purchase.


Not just a great bed!

We bought this bed for our new property and it was our first purchase.Not only does it provide us with a great sleep,it has also solved a storage problem and at a great price! The staff at Dreams were excellent and a credit to the company,and the delivery service was super and bang on time! Would recommend your company and service highly! Many thanks Ian Gurney.


Sturdy, roomy and relatively easy to assemble!

We bought a single bed in this design for our daughter. It appealed as she has a small bedroom and so this was a good storage option. When it arrived we were really pleased with the fact the frame appeared really solid and the storage area is plenty big enough for an 11year olds things. It wasn't too difficult to put together. Really please with our purchase.



I bought this just before Christmas and am really pleased with it. The delivery men were very pleasant and efficient. It was raining and as soon as they set foot in the hall removed their shoes without me even asking. Wonderful. They assembled the bed quickly and tidied all mess up. The bed base itself has a large useful storage area. All in all a great purchase.

Questions and Answers About Francis Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame

Are you able to open the electric version manually if required?

Answer: , The Francis electric would not be able to be pulled up manually as the electric pistons would resist this, you don’t want to force this. One thing to try is to troubleshoot the bed. Try new batteries first and check the bed is plugged in at the mains. If the remote needs pairing then see instructions below. 1. Turn off the bed at the mains 2. Press and hold up on the remote 3. Keep holding up, turn the bed back on at the mains. This should pair the remote again with the bed. If there is still an issue then it will need an engineer to take a look at the bed, Kind Regards, Dreams

Will a USA king size mattress fit on this super king frame? Although the US king is slightly larger than a super king as I don't see any ridges for the mattress it should still fit with a small over hang?

Answer: , The Francis Bed Frame in Super King is designed to accommodate a Super King Mattress that measures 180cm (W) x 200cm (L) - any mattress that is not this size will likely not fit. The dimensions of a USA King Mattress is 193cm (W) x 203cm (L), therefore it is unlikely that a mattress this size will fit this frame. Kind Regards, Dreams

Firstly is the bed mechanism quite easy to operate manually? is the fabric soft or hard to the touch? Is the fabric wipeable? 

Answer: Hi , The mechanism is very easy to use, it in fact takes all the pressure out the lift and lowering of the frame. The fabric is soft touch however it is pulled taut making it feel a little firmer. Lastly, all fabrics are to be wiped with caution. Thank you for your question.

is the storage compartment upholstered at all? Also on the manual version is the lifting hydraulically assisted, and is there a handle to help pull it down? Finally is the metal bar bit holding the mattress in place always visible at the end of the bed?

Answer: Hello, The storage compartment is made from upholstered wooden under boards. The manual version of this bed is assisted and the handle is seen at the end of the bed frame. The metal bar will not be visible until you lift the frame up for storage. Many thanks for the question.

The dimensions sheet says the standard double is 210cm long, which won't fit in our room. I think as standard double size is usually 190cm long this may be a mistake on the factsheet - could you confirm the correct length of the standard double?

Answer: Hi , You are correct in saying a double mattress is only 190cm in length, however you will never have a frame the same size as the mattress. A frame will always be bigger as the mattress sits on the inside. Thank you for your question.

Hi, what is the mattress size length from the end of the bed to where the start of the headboard meets the bed? I know that is measures 210CM for small double but will it fit a 190CM Small double mattress for instance?

Answer: , The length of the small double measures 210cm and hence a mattress that is 190cm in length will fit in this space. There will, however, be a significant gap between the mattress and the head end of the bed frame. Kind Regards, Dreams

What is depth of the headboard? Can the feet be detached?

Answer: , The depth of the head board is 12cm. The feet have to be attached when assembling, meaning that they are able to be detached, however we do not recommend assembling and using this bed frame without the feet. Kind Regards, Dreams

The 5' bed in Black shows a head height of 153cm (60") whereas the wider 6' bed shows a head height of 127cm (50"). Is this correct - the smaller bed has a larger head height? Also these dimensions aren't the same when compared with the grey bed.

The measurements for super king size are confusing.  The head end is stated as 127cm / 72 inch. However, 127cm is 50inch. This is the same for the length and width, they are not correctly converted. Please confirm what the correct measurements are. Thank

Answer: Hi , The correct dimensions for the super king are as follows: Head-end: 127cm (50 inch) Length: 220cm (87 inch) Width: 185cm (73 inch) We will update the website to reflect this. Thank you for your question.

Does this ottoman base have an enclosed bottom? meaning the compartment has a floor, raising your stored items off the ground? If so, what is the depth of this compartment?
