THE TIMELESS OAK BED
Designed by Conran, this bed is a versatile blend of tradition and modernity – and it’s a great style investment for your home, says M&S.com home editor Jo Caulkett
Most of us spend a third of our time sleeping, so your bed is probably the most important piece of furniture you’ll ever buy. This design, made to last using solid oak, is the ideal investment piece. Created exclusively for M&S by Conran, it has a natural finish that will suit any interior scheme. Team it with lightweight summer bedding – try a palette of white, soft grey and muted pastels to recreate the look shown here – then add sumptuously snug covers and cosy knitted throws when the colder nights draw in. With subtly tapered turned-wooden legs and slim headboard spindles that feature playful detailing, the design combines traditional materials and craftsmanship with modern styling for elegant appeal that will endure year after year.
