Castello Black Bedstead
Really pleased with how this looks. Really lovely. Service was excellent. Delivered really quickly. Delivery guys put it up for us. Excellent.

This bedstead is a beautiful version of a traditional brass bed and i love it! The only aspect of the design I dislike is the phoney darkening of part of the brass bars - this is unnecessary and worthy of a stage set. But the item itself is strong and classy. The delivery time and chaps putting it together were spot on and hard working. However - we needed to move/ dismantle the bedstead 2 weeks later due to redecoration. Putting it back together was not so easy! One screw fell out on its own and will not 'grip' to stay in now. More crucially one bolt out of the 4 holding base to headboard will not go back in - something to do with alignment! So - a fab looking bedstead but with a couple of glitches!

Edwardian style bedstead with a contemporary twist with the black colour combination with the brass. Matches with the the black accents in my bedroom. Very pleased with style colour and quality. Ordered the kingsize bedstead. My bedroom is small but the bed made the room look bigger because of the style of the bedstead with its bars and rails. I do not find the bed too high I like the height - adds to the luxury. The sprung beech slats support the mattress well. The delivery team were also excellent they brought their own doormat and wore protective covers on their shoes. They constructed the bedstead in 30 mins and cleared away all packaging. Also purchased another set of the gorgeous classy M&S Autograph Sateen bedding for my new bed. My new bed is now completely dreamy! 100% happy and I am quite a perfectionist.

Fairy tale bedstead
After months of searching for the perfect bed, finally found pretty much that. This bed is much sturdier and more solid looking than many other similar bedsteads, although actually quite lightweight so can easily be moved once set up. The brass finials are a little 'brassy', but am hoping these will tarnish over time and look a little more authentic. The delivery team were great, in and out in a little over half an hour, and so far it hasn't been squeaky after their assembling the bed. A word of warning though, this bed is very high and therefore could easily dominate a room. We measured it out before we ordered but still were not totally prepared for the actuality. With our very deep mattress it's HUGE. Does make you feel like the princess and the pea, but I don't mind that too much!
