How to choose the right fabric for your bed

How to choose the right fabric for your bed

Picking the right fabric for your bed isn’t a decision to be made without careful deliberation. Colour, feel and pattern all need to be taken into account, with consideration of how your new bed will fit into the design of your existing bedroom.

All our handmade beds are available upholstered in our carefully curated collection of natural fibre fabrics, all chosen not only for their look & feel, but also for the ethos & sustainability credentials of the mill itself.

Fabric Types

House Wool

Our range of house wools come in both herringbone and plain weaves, combining the cosy softness of wool with the feel of linen.

House Linen

Our striking Basalt house linen is a slubby, heavyweight Belgian linen that’s been planted, grown, and processed ethically.

Washed Linen

100% pure linen with a wrinkly, stonewashed charm.


Linara is a classic cotton-linen blend. 100% natural with a peach-skin hand and a cosy, washed look.

For the ultimate in opulence, our range of carefully selected velvets offer a luxurious soft matte finish.

Ordering Fabric Swatches

You can order up to 5 samples of our fabrics completely free of charge here

We highly recommend requesting fabric swatches before you order your bed to see the colours in the light of your own home, making sure they are exactly as you expected as they may look different on your screen.

Hold it up against curtains, paint and lampshades to see if they match tonally. Look at it under natural light during the day as well as by a lamp’s glow at night so you’re certain the colour matches what you had in mind.

You should receive your samples in up to 7 working days; should they not be quite the colour you were after and you'd like to see other options, do give our showroom team a ring on 0208 090 2845 and we'll be happy to help search for that perfect fabric for you!
