Bedrooms  Vispring  Luxury 


Investing in a luxury designer bed makes sound financial sense. After all, there’s no point skimping when it comes to a good night’s sleep. But what bed should you buy? Well, a good place to start would be our guide to Britain’s top five most desirable beds…

Vispring Westminster Bamboo Special edition
This special edition version of the Vispring Westminster features a mattress hand filled with bamboo floss, mohair and Shetland wool. Mohair helps regulate body temperature, keeping sleepers cool during the summer, yet it's warm in the winter, while Bamboo is not only soft and silk-like to the touch, it’s also anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial and resistant to dust mites. A perfect combination for hot humid nights.

This special edition Westminster partners the mattress with Prestige divan and Lennox headboard. A Schlossberg duvet, filled with 100 per cent Masurian goose down, bundled with a silk and cotton cover, pillow set and skirted mattress protector, is also available.


And So To Bed Venetian
For the height of luxury, you simply have to shortlist a four poster. This stunning offering from And So To Bed features a fashionable high gloss lacquer finish, and is available to order in either black or white. Attention to detail is high. Hand carved detailing, including delightful barley twist posts, add classic interest, while the arches which run along the base of the bed are inspired by Venice's famed Rialto Bridge (hence the name). Specifiers can also opt to order the Venetian in a natural wood finish. Choose from a King-sized model, Super King or Emperor.


The Vispring Kingsbridge
The Kingsbridge from Vispring features a mattress hand-filled with South American horsetail, and blended with pure Devonshire fleece wool. This inventive combination has been layered over two rows of individually pocketed springs, arranged in a honeycomb formation. One key characteristic is that the bed naturally bounces back after a night’s sleep. It’s typically partnered with Vispring’s pocket sprung divan base, and can be coupled with one or a variety of luxury headboards from the brand. Available in King-size upwards.

IKEA NORNÄS Pinewood bedframe
You don’t need to spend a fortune to make a statement in the bedroom. This modernistic bedframe from the IKEA NORNÄS pinewood collection is a great low-cost choice for lovers of Scandi style. Made from trees sourced from the far North of Sweden, it can be partnered with a matching bedside table and wide variety of storage options, and augmented with the mattress and duvet of your choice.

The Vispring Hotel Devonshire
Designed principally for the hotel and hospitality market, the Vispring Devonshire is beautifully designed and features a brilliant British fleece wool mattress - as a result it carries the world-famous Woolmark. Wool is not only soft and durable, it’s also light (making the mattress easier to flip) and naturally fire retardant, so fewer chemicals are required to meet UK fire safety standards. The result is both practical and unapologetically prestigious.
