If you're looking for storage without sacrificing style, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option than a divan base - such as our Coco Base.
What is a Divan Base?
A divan base is a type of upholstered bed base constructed from a sturdy wooden frame, typically to a height of around 35-40cm. The tall upholstered sides of a divan base - combined with its solid box-frame construction - make it perfect to accommodate a range of sturdy drawer combinations.
Our Coco Base
Our Coco Base is solidly constructed atop caster wheels from a responsibly-sourced beechwood frame, which is then covered in layers of hessian, organic coir and soft lambswool wadding, before being upholstered in one of our range of natural-fibre fabrics (Order a swatch here!).
In sizes from small double and up, the Coco Base comes split lengthways (from head to foot end) for ease of access, and links solidly together with linking plates once transported to the room of choice.
The Coco Base comes without drawers as standard, but we are happy to offer a choice of drawers - in a range of widths - to perfectly suit your individual needs.
Our drawers are made here in the UK from hardwood, assembled using glue, screws and hard-wearing dovetail joints on the corners to ensure stability. They are placed on sturdy rails with a built-in slow close, and an anti-fray trim on the upholstered corners.
Our Drawer Sizes
We have four drawer sizes available - as seen in the table below:
|Measurements in cm||External Width||External Height||Internal Width||Internal Height||Internal Depth|
The various sizes of our drawers give way to a certain number of combinations available for your bed, depending on your chosen size of Coco Base.
Due to size limitations, smaller bed bases - from Small Single to Small Double - will only accommodate drawers on one side. Larger beds, however - from Double to Emperor - can accommodate drawers along both sides of the base.
