Luxury Leather Beds
A real leather bed has become one of the most popular bed frames in the UK today, providing your bedroom with an elegant, warm and luxurious feel in either a classic or contemporary design. Real luxury leather beds are considered to be excellent value for money and a complement to any bedroom. With brown or mocha, black and cream colours available in real leather with designs in sleigh or Chesterfield styles that fall into the higher price ranges, however these designs work perfectly with leather materials and are just breathtaking! As most leather beds tend to be low they are suitable for children, adults and the elderly however if storage is essential, you can purchase special under-bed drawers or an ottoman fully upholstered bed with a hollow base that simply lifts up to reveal ample storage for clothes or spare bedding but allowing your bedroom to remain clutter free.
Faux Leather Beds
Faux leather beds retain the elegance and luxury of a real leather bed but faux versions are made up of entirely of synthetic materials offering a wider range of styles and colours; black, brown, cream, white, red, etc. With so many styles to choose from faux leather beds have an added benefit which is lack of imperfections across the surface as real leather sometimes shows a colour variation across the hide (animal skin), although it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between real and faux leather nowadays.
