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.

It's a wonderful bed. It's soft yet has great support, so with one new hip, one new , knee, bursitis and two bad backs between us, we're sleeping so much better. OK, so you might need a run up to clamber in (It's high!) and you might flounder a bit whilst you're doing this (see aforementioned softness) but very worth it. It was bloody expensive, even with the 20% off.....but I'd buy it again because its value for money. Also, delivery men were delightful even though our stairs are tricky and the mattress is VERY heavy (Emperor size) and the sales assistant (Matthew) in Shrewsbury was great; really helpful but not pushy!

Generally seems to be fit for purpose, but needs to be used for some time to get true indication. Drawers good fit and decently made, but assembly was a nightmare as took 3 of us over an hour to do. Very poor alignment of the blue dots to indicate where the hidden nuts were to take the bolts for the headboard bolts. Had to make holes in the fabric naturally to find them accurately. Could have paid 30 for the delivery team to assemble butthey would have found same issues. Castors are decent but had to be hammered in with rubber mallet with some of them, not all a push fit as claimed.

We bought this divan base to support our new mattress. We are especially pleased with the amount of storage space available to us. Turning the mattress has become slightly more difficult because the weight of the mattress weighs down the top of the divan; when lifted, the hydraulic struts automatically cause the top to lift. Definitely a two person job now, but very please with the quality and operation so far.

Great bed base and does exactly what we needed. Lots more storage space and easily accessible. Price was in budget for what we needed, offering good quality at a reasonable price. Service from showroom to delivery was spot on. Did what you said, when you said you would, good customer service.

A lot of problems found one week after delivery. Screws in the draw have fallen out, the drew will not close. The wrong base ordered, so the draws at the top of the bed will not open the headboard. Underneath the bed is cracked. Help desk is helping. Just have to wait and see.

Too early to comment. I am sure in time having this large extra storage space will prove very popular to my wife.. I reserve a longer term comment. Shs seems to work on the basis that space needs to e filled. ..... Now! Throwing things out is taboo!!

This bed is fantastic - after searching for years for a bed that both my wife and I like (she prefers medium and I prefer hard) we agreed on this and have not been disappointed with the quality or comfort, unlike with our previous bed which was a Hypnos

Excellent - the only thing about the product and assembly process which could be improved is the ease of assembly of the 3rd & 4th wing nuts holding the headboard., which we had trouble with. Assembly staff extremely helpful, as was the store manager.

Divan lovely. It replaces Sleigh bed so I now enjoy easy bed making and changing bed linen. The divan rolls easily on castors when nobody in bed when it stays stable. We only purchased divan which was easy to construct. Nice grey velvety fabric.

I bought the bed for my husband, who is currently in hospital, so he hasn't tried it for comfort yet. It looks very luxurious (not sure if he deserves it). It's much better than the one I threw away and the mattress is firm.

Looks good, drawers work, but not impressed with thin cardboard between structs, part damaged so sags in one place, and missing insert for headboard screw on one side so cannot fix headboard securely. Would not buy again.

Nice easy compact and quietly stylish addition to a bedroom. This base looks very neat in the room and without a headboard represents understated style. My son loves it and the colour is right on trend
