Why our sleep experts loved it
Today we’re taking a closer look at some products in the new Bensons for Beds range and the Gianna looks like an interesting proposition given its slightly deeper base and bumper ottoman storage. Ultimately, the Gianna Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is a luxurious offering from Bensons for Beds, designed to cater to those who seek both comfort and style. With its premium velvet fabric and vertical panel detailing along the headboard, this bed frame is a statement piece that promises to elevate your bedroom's aesthetic. But let's not just dwell on its visual appeal; this bed frame has a lot more to offer (again, provided storage is of paramount importance to you)..
The Gianna Upholstered Frame is crafted with premium velvet fabric that has been treated to be stain-resistant. This not only adds a layer of comfort but also ensures durability. The bed frame is made in the UK, adhering to the highest standards of craftsmanship. The quality of the materials and the attention to detail make it a bed frame that could stand the test of time provided you are willing to put up the cost necessary to purchase (this one is quite pricey)
Upholstered beds have been gaining popularity for a reason. The velvet fabric offers a plush, comfortable surface that is inviting and cosy while adding a layer of tactile luxury that makes the bed more than just a place to sleep making it a sanctuary for relaxation that will likely suit most modern room designs (although the design and limited colours may not suit more traditional rooms).
The Benefits of Ottoman Beds
Ottoman beds are a godsend for those struggling with limited storage space. The Gianna comes equipped with under-bed storage that can be easily accessed by lifting the base at the foot of the bed which makes it an excellent solution for stowing away seasonal clothing, bedding, or other bulky items, making your bedroom a clutter-free zone. We find that ours is most commonly used for storing replacement bedding as the cats can shed hair most of the year making for a hairy sleep that causes allergies without regular upkeep. Your mileage will vary depending on use-case but regardless, more storage is typically considered a very good thing.
What did customers think?
The Gianna Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame has received a 3.3 out of 5-star rating based on 12 reviews. While some customers have praised its build quality and luxurious feel, others have raised concerns about its durability. This mixed feedback suggests that while the bed frame has its merits, it may not be a universal fit for everyone. What is more reassuring is the way in which the complaints system is addressed within Bensons for Beds, who rank particularly highly for their customer service on Trustpilot. That said, durability issues do darken the otherwise picturesque design of the product and its high quality velvet material.
The Gianna comes with a high price tag of over £800 in the smallest size (double being the smallest here), making it a significant investment. The larger sizes combined with the fairly heavy duty materials mean that there could be concerns for those with limited space or those who may need to move it.
The Gianna Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is a luxurious, high-quality piece that offers a lot in terms of comfort and aesthetics. However, its high price and certain limitations mean it won't be the perfect fit for everyone.
