Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

The Holmes Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame is a stylish and practical addition to any bedroom. The scrolled headboard and footboard, along with the velvety finish and Chesterfield-style button quilting, give it a luxurious and opulent appearance. The blue colour is particularly striking and would complement jewel-toned interiors or add a pop of colour to a neutral room.

One of the standout features of this bed frame is the ottoman storage space underneath the sprung slats. With an 18cm depth, it provides ample space to store away belongings and keep the bedroom clutter-free. The sprung slats also help to support the mattress, providing good airflow and pressure point relief for a comfortable night's sleep.

Consumers who have purchased the Holmes bed frame have generally been very satisfied with their purchase. Many have noted that the bed looks even better in person than it does in pictures, and that the button detail is beautiful. The storage space under the bed has also been praised, with some customers noting that it is roomy enough to store extra shoes and coats. The velvet material has also been widely admired for its softness and luxury appearance.

On the downside, a few customers have reported issues with the bed frame, such as it creaking or making noise when moving around on it. Some have also had issues with the hydraulics used to lift up the bed to access the storage space. However, these issues appear to be in the minority, with most customers reporting that the bed is sturdy and well-made.

Overall, the Holmes Upholstered Ottoman Bed Frame appears to be a popular choice among consumers, with many praising its stylish design, comfortable sleep experience, and practical storage space.

What Makes The Holmes Velvet-Finish Ottoman Bed Frame Great?

Scrolled headboard and footboard

Scrolled style is a type of design that sees a hugely popular and decadent design paired with modern neutral color schemes to create an attention grabbing frame that can be utilized in any bedroom to add further class and elegance. The design features soft and subtle curves that feel luxurious and regal.

Chesterfield-style button quilting

Chesterfield-style button quilting is a classic and timeless style of upholstery on a bed frame. It consists of a pattern of small diamond shapes stitched into the fabric of the bed frame, with a button in the centre of each diamond shape. The pattern is usually symmetrical and often includes tufting and pleating. 

Upholstered in seafoam blue velvet-finish fabric

The SMART TV technology allows you to access a wide range of digital content, including streaming services, apps, games, and more. You can enjoy top-of-the-line entertainment right in the comfort of your own bedroom.

Dark wood-effect feet

Dark wooden feet will naturally suit lighter rooms. We've personally seen some fantastic pinterest boards with lighter blues and even some yellows and greens that contrast beautifully with the darker wood. The style has become more niche in recent years as more people adopt a lighter wood but we still find this to be a fan-favourite.

Internal storage depth: 18cm

This sort of storage depth is ideal for pillows, spare duvets and other trinkets that you need to store away in the bedroom. The depth here is probably not suitable for those looking to replace full drawer sets, however, should provide great additional storage for those with limited room.

Ottoman storage that lifts from the side

Ottoman beds can open from either the end or the side, providing one of the most impressive and diverse storage solutions available. This type of base typically includes a lift system and is ideal for increasing storage in smaller rooms, allowing bedding, clothing, toys, and more to be stored and accessed conveniently. 

Sprung slats

Sprung slats are typically made from a flexible beech wood and are curved in design slightly to help give an amount of flex. These slats generally have more bounce and are made of a better quality with improved spacing when compared to traditional wooden slats.

1-year guarantee

A 1 year guarantee is expected and standard for the industry. If anything goes wrong with your product within that period you are able to get help and support and ensure that you are not left out of pocket on any repair of replacement.

Build time: 2 people | 1 hour

This is the amount of time and the people required to conduct the build process efficiently. While you may manage yourself, if it best to get the help of someone else where possible.

Customer Reviews For The Holmes Velvet-Finish Ottoman Bed Frame

Based on 57 reviews
New bed

Absolutely incredible experience! We ordered during the Covid crisis and I was a little worried about the delivery time. However I was contacted by dreams and was able to book a slot that was acceptable to us both, the delivery was seamless I was emailed to give me the date of arrival and the driver called me once on his way. I was met with smiles and at socially distanced delivery driver who was happy to take the bed to our chosen room (which I declined due to the current pandemic) the bed came packaged really well all of the instructions were easy to follow and was built within a couple of hours. We were also sent free pillows (which came via the Royal Mail a few days later) definitely will be a returning customer! Highly recommend

Absolutely beautiful!

Excellent stunning beautiful bed strong and sturdy and a very smooth and soft fabric. The colour is stunning and i bought this without seeing it. Its everything i imagined it to be and more. We fitted the bed ourselves and it was fairly easy with the easy instructions given to follow. Due to covid the bed was delivered no further then my hallway but little can be said about that. I will say closing the gas lift ottoman is a bit of a muscle work job. But it could be due to it being so new and in need of regular use to loosen it up. All in all super pleased with my stunning bed highly recommend!

Pure Luxury !

Beautifully made, classy and superb quality with a very strong sturdy framework for the plus size humans. Great storage space, perfect as I have stored items into underbed storage boxes within the ottoman and still space between them and base of bed. The end of the bed is raised higher than the mattress so you can see all of the beds greatness and feels cosier and secure. With a pure cotton bed spread, cosy lush throw and plumped up overfilled pillows to add a further luxury and a perfect light sleep at any time of the day/night. Worth every penny!

Well made, solid feel bed

Firstly the delivery team were great and gave us advice on assembling the bed as we decided to just do it ourselves. Between my partner and I it took about an hour and a half to put together entirely which was fine. The bed feels super solid and well made, the hydraulic lift system is a little stiff and heavy, but being brand new this is to be expected. The bed seems to be rather large in the room despite our measuring the space. The finish of the velvet is good and there were no flaws or issues with our bed. Overall very happy.

The solution is the key to success.

The first delivery had a faulty frame, ill fitting base and the texture of the frame was all wrong. My delivery driver and installer assured me that he would take the issues up with the company on my behalf. Two weeks later I received another delivery which was fitted by the same installer. The product is perfect every bolt fits into place and the texture of the fabric feels luxurious. Thanks so much to the fitting team on both days and to dreams for rectifying the problem straight away. Great job guys.

Great quality and look

Great quilty bed with some handu storage. Bed finish looks and feels excellent, the colour is a little darker than appears on the website. For anyone getting the super king as we did be wary the bed comes in 3 large boxes that are heavy, the heaviest was around 48kg. Building instructions were simple and you two people an hour to build. Reason for 4 stars was delivery, wouldn't deliver to new build property so i was left to carry and then manipulate up stairs to bedroom.

A great bed with great service.

Dreams totally lived up to expectation with this purchase. Super stylish, comfortable with great storage. We were really impressed with the time spent by showroom staff to support us in choosing the right options. Installation was well worth the additional 60 as there was difficulty getting the super king frame into our new house, but the two technicians assembling dealt with this with ease. We would thoroughly recommend to others!

Perfect night sleep

I was so impressed with Dreams customer service and the bed itself. I paid extra to have the bed put together and the guys doing it couldn't have done a better job. There is so much room inside the Ottoman. I've been able to fit twice as much in as I did previously in my old drawer divan. The quality of the bed is really high. I would say it's the best bed I have purchased.

Best bed ever!!

The service I received from Dreams was nothing but amazing, they were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The bed I purchased is quite honestly the most comfortable bed Ive ever slept on, and the mattress that I chose thanks to the help from the staff is perfect. Ive never had such restful nights sleep since getting my new bed and mattress, thank you Dreams

Gorgeous bed

I adore this bed! Which is a relief as I had been eyeing it up for a while but struggled to justify the cost....however there was 200 off in the sale so I ordered it. The bed is very sturdy, it feels well made, the velvet is really soft and the colour is stunning. I paid to have it assembled which only took them 30 minutes.

Beautiful, comfy bed

This bed sold out online but managed to get one when contacting Dreams via live chat and phone call. The customer service was outstanding and the bed arrived within a week, before Christmas. It is absoloutely fabulous, looks beautiful and it is very comfortable. Love this bed and would highly recommend it to others.

Gorgeous bed frame

Absolutely sunning bed frame, honestly the pictures dont do it justice. Loads of space underneath for all our extra shoes and coats. Button detail is beautiful and the frame is very sturdy. My wife was very pleased and surprised with how the slates changed the feel of our mattress to be more comfortable.

Beautiful bed!

Absolutely beautiful bed, the pictures dont do it justice. Ordered it on a bit of a whim after another retailer let us down but so glad that I did as it is stunning. The extra storage is great and the velvet is so soft. Weve already had so many compliments about it.
