Fabric is the new leather!

Hey my fellow bloggers, sorry I haven’t blogged sooner – my bad! Recently, I have been to the Interiors UK 2013 exhibition at Birmingham NEC. I was amazed at the turn out, and the furniture is out of this world. I did however notice one thing, not only if fabric the new black, but fabric is the new leather – or so it seems! Fabric beds were everywhere, and we love them.

Fabric beds are available in many different colours. Birlea Furniture has introduced an amazing range of fabric beds, such as the Birlea Brooklyn fabric bed which is available in chocolate brown, grey or wheat. The thing we like most about the Birlea Brooklyn Collection is that it is also available as an ottoman storage bed, which is perfect for any room lacking in storage. Currently I have only seen these particular beds available from leading bed stores such as Bed Centre UK and Bed SOS, but we’re sure other retailers will soon sharp jump on the fabric bed band wagon.

Other manufacturer’s, such as Limelight Beds, have introduced some very modern fabric beds. Our favourite is most definitely the Limelight Eclipse fabric bed in plum finish. This Limelight Jupiter bed is another favourite of ours, with its beige upholstered fabric finish and easy lift up action for the internal storage facility.

Time Living is another fine example of a fantastic manufacturer of fabric beds. Their range of Hamburg fabric beds are desirable, and come in a choice of pebble grey fabric or cocoa brown fabric finish.

Here at Home Desirable, we just love the fact that contemporary fabric beds are becoming the latest must have piece of bedroom furniture.

Divan Beds: Molly or not!?

Ok, so I know its been a while since I last blogged, I mean it has been Easter after all. Anyways, today I waited in for our bed to be delivered from Northgate Bedding Centre. The guys came and wasted no time in getting the fully wrapped Highgate Divan bed base into the bedroom. We decided to purchase a bed from Northgate Bedding Centre (aka http://www.mrmattress.co.uk) because, to be honest, I had a metal bed frame from there in the past and I never once had a problem with it whatsoever, despite it being dismantled 12 times for reallocation into the numerous houses I have lived in.

Anyways, trucking on… The bed base itself is in a mink chenille fabric (which is the finish we chose in store after seeing various samples), and I have to say it looks fantastic on the carpet. I’m not really one for divan bed bases as, previously stated, I often tend to think they are rather molly! This beauty however is far from ‘mollified’, it features four deep drawers which are perfect for storing my Kylie Minogue bed linen, should I ever get round to purchasing such bedding from Seymours – until then, my Wilko’s king size pin tuck bedding is now neatly stored away. The bed base itself seems extremely sturdy, perfect for someone like me who is in the same weight category as Mike Tyson, and the over all quality of the bed is exceptional. The Premium 2000 memory foam mattress, which was purchased with my old bed from Bed SOS, feels brand new – possibly because the new bed base is not slatted.

All in all, I have to admit that I am impressed with the level of service, not only in the Northgate Bedding Centre store, but the professionalism of the delivery men who were extremely well presented, friendly and polite. I dare say I’ll be sleeping well tonight, only thing I’m lacking now is that desirable 5ft cream leather headboard – all in good time.
