Japan Bed gives a stylish Asian feel: size & colour choice

  • Japan Low Level Bed is a perfect fit for an Asian style bedroom.
  • Use in a minimalist environment and while it will not only look fantastic it will also give comfortable restorative sleep.
  • Made in Denmark by Karup Design, Japan beds are easy to assemble with clear instructions.
  • Another feature is that they are  suitable for spaces that are difficult to access. For instance a converted space such as an attic, loft or a mezzanines, areas with low ceilings.
  • These ready to assemble beds are straightforward and easy to put anywhere in your home, even when there’s tricky manoeuvres. For instance getting up a spiral staircase or taking up a drop down ladder from a loft is no bother.
  • Please check out the video, you’ll see it’s an easy process. 
  • If there’s any doubt about access, at the end of the day you can always remove all the packaging.  As a result you can take the pieces up one at a time.
  • The drop down menus below show sizes to choose from and options for the finish of the timber. Mention should be made of the Unfinished which is nice to handle and has smooth edges. Consequently when left in this natural state the wood will develop a patina or character of its own, over time.
  • The Japan Low Level Bed uses traditional European roll up slats. Furthermore to develop the Asian style you can add Tatami Mats  and a Futon Mattress. Also, a Futon Mattress alone will fit in the “well” of the bed frame.

IMPORTANT Japan Low Level Bed info.

  • The mattress size length needed for the Japan bed is 200 cm. If  you buy a futon mattress from futonsonline.co.uk it will fit properly. If using a different mattress company please ensure you get a 200 cm length to get the same result.
  • The mattress we offer with the Japan Bed is called COMFORT. This mattress is 15 cm thick and consists of cotton with a 4 cm foam core. The cover is either White or Black.
  • CHOICE is central to what we do. The latest textile we offer is UK made and completely chemical free called Cottonsafe®
  • The Japan Bed is made to accommodate Tatami Mats. If you want Tatami mats please continue shopping when in the basket.
  • Just click NONE in the drop down menus if you’d like Bed Only

FREE delivery is the first point to emphasise.

However, since the start of the Pandemic we have experienced huge difficulties to keep up with demand. Our supplier of quality Sofa Beds is Danish company Karup Design. They have undergone changes in the way they operate and as a result grown massively since 2020. This is a positive thing inasmuch  that it demonstrates people like the product range. But demand outstrips supply at this moment in time.

We always have stock coming from Karup Design so it's worth calling 020 7223 7212. However for the next few months lead time will be about 9 weeks. 

When your order arrives in our warehouse I get in touch with you and suggest a delivery date and when agreed it's guaranteed. Beyond that we can request an a.m. (08.30-13.00) or p.m. (13.00-18.30) slot. However the request is at the discretion of our couriers who do what they can to comply with your wishes.

You can specify a date or I'll suggest a date in the order confirmation email and you can amend as necessary. It is also possible to leave deliveries in a garage, with a neighbour or even at the back of a house. This request has to be made ahead of time and you feel it's safe to do so.

Assembling your futon frame is very straightforward as there’s only a few pieces. Fact is the finished piece of furniture is a comfy, solid, functional bed with an elevating head section.
My tips to you are: remove the parts from the packaging, then the box etc..should be put out of the way. Give yourself room to operate. Check you have everything the “book of words” says you should have.
Take your time, follow the plan and accept help or ask for more hands when necessary. Finally, no macho tightening bolts into barrel nuts, just “finger tight” when using the supplied allin key. Simples,and if not please call me.020 7223 7212.

Love Your Futon

Essentially we feel it makes perfect sense to not just look after your futon but Love Your Futon. When you invest hundreds of pounds in a futon mattress get the best possible use from it. We insert a Care Leaflet with every futon mattress that we make. Therefore please take the time to digest the useful advice on the page. Furthermore as specialist futon mattress makers we want you to benefit from the sound sleep we hope it gives.

First Love

A few customers mention how thick the futon mattresses are when they first arrive in a customer's home. We explain on the leaflet and also when they call that there's air in the layers of filling. As a result the futon has to be in use for a week or so before there's some settlement. This "bedding in" process is completely normal and most of all necessary to have an even surface.

Other Love

While we want to get rid of the air at the beginning of the futon mattress's life, things move on. We very much hope the futon sits on a surface of slats.  This is especially relevant as we want air to circulate around the mattress. If air circulates it will enable a drying out process to occur. We all sweat at night when we sleep and the moisture can reside in the filling and eventually create mould. Drying out the futon will prevent mould from growing. On a hot dry day take your futon outside and let it sit in the sun to get completely dry. An open window can help get the same effect.
After 7-9 years
I hope you will have much use from your wonderful comfy futon mattress. But probably after nearly a decade the time will be approaching when you have to say "goodbye" old friend.
