SKU: N/A Category:


A floating bed frame provides a simple, modern, understated look and is great for making the most of space. Our Como frame sets the feet of the bed in around 150mm from the end and sides of the bed to give the impression of floating and keeps them safely away from toes.

The Como’s head board is made from hand jointed, sanded and waxed reclaimed scaffold boards and supported from the rear to give a simple uncluttered look that matches the design language of the rest of the bed and shows off their unique character . There is no toe board to bump into or clutter the look. It is ideal for taller occupants, particularly for standard single or double beds.

Each bed is hand made (not just hand finished) to order. This means that we can happily adjust the size to precisely fit your mattress. Just order the closest size and let us know the precise measurements. There is no extra charge. There is more info on mattress sizing on our FAQ page.

You can change more than just the mattress size. If you want the mattress higher or lower to accommodate under bed storage, the head board to fit under a sloping ceiling, anything. Just let us know.

Our complete bed frames are just that. Designs that we have perfected and you can order with just a couple of clicks. That is not to say that every item will be the same. The use of reclaimed materials still means that every item will have its own unique character.

Bed frames have a number of advantages over bed bases. They allow your mattress to breathe more easily, extending its life and preventing the build up of allergens in the mattress. They also allow dust and other allergens to pass through them rather than building up within them.

Our bed frames are built to last. The 42mm steel tubing used in our frames is used for safety railing on North Sea oil rigs. 38mm thick scaffold boards are designed to support the loads of builders, their supplies and equipment. The slats are 20mm thick and 94mm wide, sustainably sourced redwood about 30% wider and closer set than used by most mass manufacturers and we don’t hesitate to discard any that we think may not last a life time. A number of our customers have bought our beds for teenagers having been tired of having to keep replacing mass-produced ones. We have never had to replace a bed or any part of it due to faulty design, parts or labour.

Our beds are easy to assemble, most need only four grub screws to be tightened and the slats laid in place. No special tools are required and they disassemble just as easily if you need to move them.

All our beds are made to order. We guarantee they are ready for dispatch within ten working days of receiving your order but we normally do much better. If you need the bed for a particular date, contact us and we will let you know whether we can commit to that date before you order.
