​The Tarka Trundle Base is the natural sleepover solution - if you’ll pardon the pun.

At first glance, the Tarka looks like a standard divan base. However, lifting up the fabric valance on the side of the bed reveals something rather clever. Hidden within the bed frame lies another deployable single bed (with Teen Mattress included), which slides out on built-in castor wheels.

Two sturdy legs snap out easily from underneath the deployable base, and lock in place to raise it to the same height as the initial bed base. These beds can be used as two singles, or can be pushed together to form an almost super-king sized bed.

Main mattress not included. The Tarka comes with one Natural Teen mattress as standard to fit the sliding under-bed. This can be switched to a Teen Spring mattress at your request. Please note the base mattress is 15cm shorter to accommodate sliding under the bed.

The Tarka Trundle Base takes our sustainable and ethical approach to bed making - using only the finest natural materials and our years of experience hand-crafting beds - and combines it with some space-saving smart thinking to produce a bed that is not just pretty, but practical too.

Note: The Tarka Trundle does not include a headboard, but can be paired with any Naturalmat headboard.

Very few beds are built the way we build them

Handmade in Devon, properly

We handcraft our beds in our Devon workshop using traditional joinery techniques which ensure they last a lifetime. Unlike most bed frames which are simply stapled together, ours are glued (using organic glue) and screwed for a much sturdier and longer lasting construction. And because we make everything ourselves, we’re always happy to accommodate bespoke requests like making headboards taller or wider, or swapping the standard feet for something different.

The natural difference

Many of the same natural and organic fibres in our mattresses feature in our beds too. We start with FSC-certified timber for the frame and layer on organic coir or recycled denim depending on the design. The headboard is then wrapped in locally sourced organic wool before being finished with one of our natural fabrics. The result is a natural bed, completely free of synthetic foam and chemical fire retardants, which will provide years of comfort.

Our fabrics

We have curated a collection of natural fabrics, featuring unique fibres like linen, wool and hemp, chosen not only for their look & feel, but also for the ethos & sustainability credentials of the mill itself. Using the fabric selector at the top of the page, you can order up to 5 free swatches which should arrive within a week.
