Beds: Best Sellers and Ones to Look out for in 2018
To celebrate National Bed Month, we’re taking a look at some of our popular upholstered bed frames, and ones to watch out for in 2018, all hand crafted in our Nottinghamshire factories.
Why are our bed frames so good?
Using the same innovative approach, skill and craftsmanship we put into our sofas, Whitemeadow are proud to offer an extensive selection of upholstered bed frames that your customers are guaranteed to fall in love with.
Knowing that the finer detail is in the finishing touch to any product design, whether it be a particular style of stitching, buttoning, piping or feet, we have the skill and expertise to apply finishing flourishes. We aren’t limited to a particular style of handwriting either when it comes to product design, we’re determined to push the boundaries. So rather than producing a singular structured house style, we offer design styles appealing to a wide spectrum of customers, from pure contemporary, through to modern and traditional. We also understand how important great fabric is, so we only source fabrics from the finest mills in the world, and that pass our rigorous testing procedures.
Top selling models
The epitome of sophistication, Kensington is a grand, opulent design featuring a winged frame, which creates a strong presence in any bedroom. Available in a choice of colours, it is perfect for either a glamourous, modern classic interior or country chic style.
Kingsbury features the distinctive curved profiles to its side rails and head & footboards, typically associated with the Sleigh Bed style found throughout history. Refined and timeless, the design is unashamedly opulent whilst retaining a Grande stately presence. The headboard & footboard features Whitemeadow’s trademark deep buttoning detail.
Recently released- models to watch out for
Launched in summer last year, these models are now on shop floors and performing very well across a selection of retailers.
Distinctive in nature, the Brixton bed frame is designed to project a super luxe, contemporary look which demands attention. Effectively demonstrating the workmanship and detail we have become known for, the deep buttoning detail creates a super soft, luxurious and inviting look.
Another new model to watch out for is the Ralph. An outstanding model which combines the very best of individuality in design and style, whilst still offering superior comfort. Features include a graceful curved wing profile and deep buttoned single width headboard pillow. The headboard features a removable pillow designed for sitting up in bed and relaxing.
Brand new for SS18
For the first time in our history, we were proud to have a dedicated bed stand at the January Furniture Show, where we launched a selection of brand new models for Spring/Summer ’18.
Among those was the Ellen bed frame. Inspired by French provisional design, Ellen is a modern update based on the classically elegant proportions and shape of this style of design, and was presented in Lumino Turquoise, a new fabric for 2018. The frame has been finished to offer a softer padded feel, combined with a cleaner look for a fresh feel based on a classic personality, something which is bang on trend with consumers.
A stunningly clean style, Loretta’s single most distinctive feature is its deep ledge frame finished with crisp mitre detailing where the side rails link to the front rails. This contemporary style is again carried through with the use of sleek metal legs. Loretta was presented in a super soft velvet that has a digitally printed marble effect pattern running throughout the fabric. Through the use of panelled stitch detailing to the headboard, this creates the impression of a leather look, however with all the warmth and softness of leather.
Louis is another all new model which combines elegant modern lines with sumptuous detailing and deep buttoning to the headboard. This design blends the very best of contemporary trends with grown up glamour. Presented in a new colourway of Navy, as part of our highly successful Shetland fabric range, combined with brass tipped turned legs, the model looks stunning and glamorous.

Top Bedroom Interior Trends to look out for in 2018
To celebrate National Bed Month this March, we're taking a look at what will be popular in the world of bedroom interiors this year, and how you can offer your customers the look they want.
All is Quiet, all is Calm
Bedrooms are more than just a place to sleep, they are our sanctuaries, a place to relax and switch off from the busy world outside. Never more so have consumers yearned for a calm and nurturing space from their bedrooms, and with Dulux releasing their soothing colour of the year- Heart Wood, you can expect to see an increase in demand for bedding, lighting and accessories that reflect this need for rest and quietude. With that in mind, our designers have worked on bed frame designs that will appeal to consumers looking for exactly this. The Milan bed frame offers an intelligently designed frame and interior, so it feels and appears as the epitome of comfort, a pillow. Minimal use of timber on the headboard and a flange edge creates a fresh, soft and luxurious look and feel. And new for this year is the Dolly fabric in Cream, just to add to the cosiness of the look!
A Lust for Luxury
We have certainly seen a significant increase in the demand for upholstered bed frames in velvet fabrics over the past couple of seasons, and 2018 will be no different. The consumer’s desire for a decadent and super-luxe look shows no sign of abating, and there is now a strong move towards display models made up in velvets. These fabrics cross over to many styles, from traditional styles such as the Kensington (below) to the contemporary Brixton.
The botanical interiors theme has been gaining pace throughout the home recently and 2018 looks to be the year it reaches our bedrooms too! We noticed at the January Furniture Show a significant amount of botanical inspired interiors and fabrics that were used on everything from sofas, bed frames and chairs to curtains and rugs. To introduce this look in store, try a display model made up in a botanical inspired fabric such as the Stockholm in Marinello Olive.
The Scandi trend is one that has been around for a while, but with so many ways to use this style it is one that is set to stay popular. Inspired by this look and with a tasteful nod to the contemporary, Southbank was released mid 2017 and is gaining momentum on shop floors. The model features the unique blend of smooth woven fabric for the frame and headboard, mixed with the quilted version of the same fabric for a strong, on trend look.
Jewel in the Crown
For a contemporary twist, and to add a bit of drama to a room, consumers this year will also look towards adding rich tones such as emerald and sapphire to their colour palettes. One model that stood out from the crowd at the January Furniture Show for us was the Ellen bed, displayed in the new Lumino Turquoise fabric. This looks set to be a top seller and many customers have ordered it the stunning jewel tone it was display in.

Top trends spotted at the January Furniture Show
We kicked the new year off in style by attending one of the country’s largest and most important furniture shows at Birmingham’s NEC – the January Furniture Show.
Launching our brand new bed stand, and bringing some of our latest designs along, the show provided the perfect opportunity for us to launch our Spring/Summer 2018 upholstery collection and get valuable feedback from leading UK retailers.
It also allowed us to get a sneak peek of what to expect from the world of furniture this year. From industrial accents, to edgy, geometric prints, here’s some of the top trends we spotted at the JFS 2018….
Show Some Leg
Tapered legs continue to appear across all kinds of furniture. From upstanding sofas, coffee tables and even beds, retro angled legs are delicately shaped to appeal to modern audiences. The style helps to create the look of space in a room by letting light travel around furnishings, ideal for open plan living, as highlighted here beautifully by the new Alfie Chair from the Content by Terence Conran range.
The Tweed Evolution
Tweed will no longer be classed as an old man’s fabric, as the Scottish style returns. Sofas are making the best use of the fabric, creating statement pieces for contemporary, country styles that can be dressed up and down with different pattern cushions and textures. The Aster corner sofa in new fabric Aspen Mustard was very well received by many visitors to our stand.
The plush revolution continues as velvet adorned most pieces at the show. The lavishly soft fabric covered bed frames and sofas, in shades of deep greys and blue, with some pieces displaying intricate button tufting for added luxe, targeting a younger audience. Our brand new Ellen bed was one of the stars of the show, displayed in new fabric Lumino Turquoise.
Sofas and beds are going into the deep, with dark shades of blue injecting rich opulence into pieces, from luxurious dressing chairs to classic chaise lounges, perfect for the warmer, brighter months and the fashion conscious. Another new model, Boston, in Plush Indigo, worked beautifully with our new scatter cushion fabric, Nevado Indigo.
A Dash of Mustard
With the ultra-fashionable mustard taking centre stage this year, a splash of colour has been injected into the season. Mustard helps to add texture to pieces, as well as being subtly threaded through fabrics to suit those less adventurous. We really went to town on the Whitemeadow upholstery stand, injecting splashes of colour on the walls and through accessories to compliment the ranges.
Geometric patterns are using the seasons most popular shades to create bold, statement pieces of on-trend furniture. Appealing to whole host of audiences, there’s a pattern to suit anyone’s tastes. We love the Andrew Martin fabrics we used to create an 'Antique Explorer' theme in our central room on the stand.
Laying in Luxury
Luxurious, plush and velour are the three words to be associated with beds. Huge, caved, bed stands coated in luxurious velvet add glamour, working to create stand-out pieces, while some styles opt for a rolled, Chesterfield style foot for a classic, understated look. The new Louis bed blends the very best of contemporary design with grown up glamour, presented at the show in new Shetland Navy fabric.
Many thanks to all customers who paid a visit to the Whitemeadow Stands this year, we look forward to delivering your new floor displays over the coming months.
