Why our sleep experts loved it
The Kobe Velvet-Finish Ottoman TV Bed Frame is designed to provide a luxurious experience in the bedroom. Upholstered in grey velvet-finish fabric, it features a quilted winged headboard that adds an elegant touch. The bed comes with a 32" SMART LG TV as standard, or you can upgrade to a 43" 4K SMART model, enhancing the comfort of watching TV right from your bed. The inclusion of a 2.1 sound system further elevates the entertainment experience.
When it comes to health and wellbeing you might be forgiven for thinking that bed frames do not feature much in this arena. That said though, the sprung slat available as standard can provide better shock absorption and cushioned support. This can contribute to a more comfortable sleeping experience, potentially benefiting spinal alignment and overall well-being.
The Kobe TV bed frame is delicately styled in neutral grey, with a geometric quilted design on the headboard. I really like that the velvet finish adds a touch of sophistication, making it a stunning statement piece in any bedroom. The slim curved foot end and the option to choose the side for ottoman storage opening add to its appeal in the aesthetics department, although everything could do with feeling a little bit more “chunky” for me personally.
The bed frame seems to be designed with quality in mind. Customer reviews highlight the sturdiness and build quality of the bed but if you are still not satisfied then remember, you do still get a 1-year manufacturer's warranty, and the bed frame itself is backed by a 1-year guarantee, reflecting confidence in the product's reliability. There is a slight increase in risk tolerance with this type of frame as there are more moving parts thanks to the ottoman mechanism. Further to this there is also the TV and electronics for the sound system. That said though, there are plenty of reviews from numerous happy customers, none of which have highlighted any particular manufacturing fault over the years of use. Ultimately customer reviews indicate that the bed is sturdy and well-designed and the ottoman storage is noted to be quite heavy to lift with the mattress on, suggesting robust construction. Care instructions are provided to maintain the appearance and functionality of the bed, including weight recommendations for the compatible mattress and bedding.
Priced at over £1500, the Kobe TV bed frame is on the higher end of the price spectrum. However, considering the smart features, extra storage, and luxurious velvet finish, the price point may be justified for those seeking a high-end bedroom experience. Some customers have noted the value for money, but the high price may be a barrier for some.
Who it won’t suit
Looking at the Kobe Velvet-Finish Ottoman TV Bed Frame, we can identify some potential negatives and aspects that may not suit certain individuals:
High Price Point: The bed frame's price is on the higher end, making it potentially unsuitable for budget-conscious shoppers. Those looking for a more affordable option might find this product out of reach.
Size Limitations: The lack of smaller bed sizes may be disappointing for those with limited space or those in need of a single or small double bed. This limitation restricts the product's appeal to those who require larger bed sizes.
Weight of Ottoman Storage: Some customers have noted that the ottoman storage can be quite heavy to lift with the mattress on. This might be a concern for individuals with mobility issues or those who frequently access the storage space.
Complexity of Features: The integration of a TV and sound system, while innovative, might not appeal to those looking for a simple and traditional bed frame. Individuals who are not tech-savvy or those who prefer a minimalist bedroom setup might find these features unnecessary or overly complicated.
Ultimately though, these negatives will likely not apply to too many people, although should still be considered. Provided the above is not an issue then this bed frame is one of the more premium and feature-rich that we have come across and looks like a sensible buy.
The Kobe Velvet-Finish Ottoman TV Bed Frame is a luxurious and innovative addition to the bedroom, offering comfort, entertainment, and storage in one elegant package. Its high price point reflects the quality and features it offers, making it a popular choice for those seeking a modern and sophisticated bedroom experience. That said, the lack of smaller sizes and the potential need for careful consideration of mattress depth are minor drawbacks, but overall, it seems to be a well-received product that combines style, functionality, and comfort.
