Why our sleep experts loved it
The Staples & Co Premium Divan Base is a high-quality bed base designed to complement the Staples & Co line of mattresses sold through the popular retailer, Bensons for Beds. The base features a strong and sturdy timber frame made from responsibly managed forests and is upholstered by hand in a choice of 25 premium upholstery fabrics, including velvet, faux leather, and linen. Customers can also choose from a range of colours to match their decor. The base is finished with luxury orbit castors with a nickel finish, making it easy to move and position the bed. In addition, the base is available with extra storage options, including drawers or an Ottoman base meaning you can find the right bed base for your room regardless of storage needs or existing room decor.
Customers who purchased the Staples & Co Premium Divan Base generally had positive things to say about the product. Many praised the well-made, quality construction of the base, noting that it was sturdy and looked great in their bedroom. Some mentioned that the drawers were not as deep as their previous divan base, but most still found them to be a useful feature. Many customers also commented on the comfort of the bed, with some saying it was the most comfortable bed they had ever had.
On the negative side, a few customers had issues with the assembly of the base, with one noting that it took three people over an hour to put it together. Another customer reported that the alignment of the blue dots used to indicate the location of hidden nuts was poor, making assembly difficult. A few customers also had issues with the quality of the product, with one reporting that the cardboard between the slats was thin and part of the base was damaged, causing it to sag in one spot. Finally, there was one customer who reported that the insert for the headboard screw was missing on one side, preventing them from securing the headboard securely. We've been in the divan industry for a while and these are all fairly common niggles that are easily put right by the experienced customer support team at Bensons for Beds. None of the negative comments gave us any particular concern and are generally outweighed by the many positive indicators.
Overall, the majority of customers who purchased the Staples & Co Premium Divan Base were satisfied with their purchase and they appreciated the high-quality construction, comfort, and storage options of the base, and many found it to be a worthwhile investment. However, a small number of customers had issues with the quality or assembly of the product, and a few reported dissatisfaction with the customer service they received after delivery.
