Never before has there been a better time to buy a brand new leather bed or
leather bed frame. Since they first stormed onto the scene on mass in around
1999 the leather bed ideal has changed dramatically.
In the beginning it was all about the size of the bed and the high price as
it was believed that only the wealthy would pay the price for a bed made from
leather. We had enormous sleigh style leather bed frames that where so big they
would barely fit into the bedroom. Many bed manufacturers stuck with the
Chocolate brown colour as this was well suited to the interior decor styling of
the time and was it seemed what everyone wanted. Within a year this had all
changed and not only had new exciting colours been made, we also had the market
changing introduction of Faux Leather bed frames.
As designs changed and more and more colour choices became available, it was
obvious that the Leather Bed was here to stay and stay at the top. Our obsession
with real leather beds was not yet ready to be replaced by what was seen as this
fake pretender and for quite a while people looked upon Faux Leather as plastic.
In the beginning it was like pushing water up hill and due to the manufacturing
costs the difference in price was not enough to sway public opinion. This was
all about to change! As the need for leather bed frames grew so did the prices
and before too long the price of a top quality double faux leather bed was
almost at the £200 a bed figure. This was not due to reduced quality materials
or cheap manufacturing, it was in fact down to the superior quality materials
used and vastly enhanced manufacturing techniques being implemented. This change
had shown for the first time that it was almost impossible to tell the
difference between a real leather bed and a faux leather bed without smelling
the unmistakeable scent of we all know you get from genuine leather. Needless to
say public opinion changed and as the story goes the rest is history.
It is now the norm for customers to expect a vast assortment to be obtainable
and are now aware that all leather and faux leather beds are not the same. At
The Leather Bed Shop UK we have assembled one of the most comprehensive ranges
available online. We have used the following ideals to source our beds. Beauty,
value, strength, character and design. Our latest range includes beds from
leading suppliers including Julian Bowen, Birlea beds, Serene Furnishings, Time
Living, Frank Bosworth, Limelight Beds and Joseph International as well as some
carefully selected beds from around the world.
We hope you like our range as much as we do and are certain that once you
have made your purchase you will be as passionate about leather and faux leather
beds as we are.
