What Makes It Great

The divan is great. Provides good comfort and it seems robust. However, unlike the picture of the product and on its specifications, both drawers are in opposite sides, therefore if your bed goes against the wall, you will have to sacrifise on drawer. I contacted e-dreams two weeks after the delivery explaining the problem, no answer.

Questions and Answers

What is the difference between the silent night divan base and the classic divan base please? What do I get for the extra money? On both, will the fabric of any drawers be the same as the rest of the base? Many thanks.

Answer: The Silentnight divan base is upholstered in a more premium fabric than the Classic divan base. In addition the Silentnight base has glides which provide added stability in comparison to the castors on the Classic base. On both divan bases the drawers will be upholstered in the same fabric as the rest of the divan base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Can a headboard be attached to this base?

Answer: Yes this base will allow the attachment of a headboard. We have a wide range of headboards available to purchase online and in store. We would recommend purchasing one of our Silentnight headboards as the fabric type and colour palette will match this base. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hi what is the max user weight?

Answer: Our bases are designed to take a variety of different mattress types and sleepers alike and therefore we do not specify a specific maximum user weight. Kind Regards Dreams

Great and Sturdy !

I was a little worried about getting a Divan base due to them being so hollow, however, this base is amazingly solid, it does not make any noise while moving around, it chrome legs are quite the feature too ! it also comes in many colour choices which was very helpful when selecting the right shade we needed. Would 100% recommend.

Finishing could be better

Overall I am very pleased with this Divan Base. It is a shame that finished product checking is not better, my base was delivered with some protruding staples and poorly finished material. All has been sorted by Dreams and hopefully this attractive Divan Base will last for years.

New bed & mattress for the guest bedroom

We are renewing our bedroom furniture & bought new beds for the spare rooms. Beds arrived in September & we have had 2 different sets of friends come to stay & both commented that they slept really well & the mattress was really comfortable.

Looks Great - Poor Build Quality

Dissapointed with the quality of this bed. Cheap flimsy wooden frame and the drawers feel like they will break in no time. It looks good and the drawers have plenty of storage space but the overall quality is poor. Cheap and cheerful.

Very fragile

I bought this bed 2 days ago .. I didn't expect this quality of the wood .. the frame is stable but the side boards are made from cartoon may be !! The outer shape is very elegant but hiding bad quality material .. didn't break yet

no wheels

pity I did not realise that the divan base does not have wheels. the weight of the bed makes it now impossible to move! the quality of the base is not as good as previous bed as it is held together with plastic clips.

Great base

I bought this to update my daughters bedroom. The colour and material is great and fits in with our colour scheme and the feet make it easy to move about and the drawers are a great size for extra storage.

No clarity in the description led to disapointment

Good product overall. My focus was the storage. I ordered what i thought was 2 draws on the same side. In fact it is 2 small draws on each side.. therefore i am missing one and can’t access one..

Good quality

Good quality. Well made. Lovely colour. Two nice big draws and two nice small draws. Lots of storage space. Fitted a headboard with no problems. Very happy with my purchase.

Great Foundation

A good bed has a great foundation and this would be the reality here. An easy to put together base, to rest the matress on which then enables a great nights sleep.

4 Draw Divan

Happy with the product but considering the cost found the way the two halves fastened together rather poor. Easy to do but does not feel very permanent.

Lovely bed

Love the storage and use of space under the bed. It does not creak at all which is great. very sturdy and beautiful fabric and easy to assemble

Great storage

We bought the bed for the storage and its fantastic! I can fit so much in! We also love the grey fabric - modern and goes with anything!

Colour not what expected.

The colour (enhanced barley) is very different to the way it appears on the website. Swatches would be helpful.
