Original Ikea queen platform bed
Having lived in student accommodation for the past three years having a comfortable and stylish bed isn’t really something I’ve been used to. The beds the University of Portsmouth provide in halls are akin to lying on a bed of chicken wire loosely covered with a bed sheet. Initially we had decided to purchase a cheap Ikea bed but after reading exceedingly bad reviews we plumped for something a little more substantial.The furniture we already had was almost entirely white so we chose a white solid wood double bed from Oakworth Furniture, based near us just outside Portsmouth. The reviews were good and having a solid wood bed with a 10 year guarantee seemed a fantastic opportunity. The bed arrived quickly with excellent communications from the showroom, letting me know when it was due to be delivered. When it did arrive it was simple to assemble, a great size and looked just how we wanted.
Priced at £299 this bed isn’t cheap cheap but is certainly not overly expensive. Oakworth are doing a further 15% off on solid wood beds with discount code OAK15, free delivery too.
