Re: Wanted: buy a Divan bed [Bern]

Hi Sally,
If you mean a DAY BED (bed that is a couch by day) then IKEA has three options for you ranging between 119chf - 569chf

Re: Where to buy a Divan bed [Bern]

Thanks for your reply but have been through all the mentioned furniture stores and they do not stock divan beds. The joy of a divan bed is that the mattress size is the same size as the base so if you are furnishing a small room you do not lose space with the bed frame. Am still searching so if you think of any other retailers specialising in divan beds would be glad to hear from you. Many thanks.

Re: Where to buy a Divan bed [Bern]

Sally, I think you are confusing people. Are you referring to a sofabed which looks exactly like a couch but then folds out into a bed at night? If so, then all of the above references are valid. I was in Pfister just last weekend and they had a number of sofabeds.

Or, are you referring to a Murphy bed which folds up into the wall during the day and slings down into the room at night? This requires a carpenter.

If you are not referring to either one of these, then you need to be more specific because people are interpreting your definition of a "divan" bed as a sofa bed.

Re: Where to buy a Divan bed [Bern]

A divan bed is a normal bed. The mattress is the same size as the base therefore you do not lose a load of space. I think they are only available in England as I have not found any on furniture sites here. But if anyone has an answer would be really happy to hear. Thanks!!!!

Re: Where to buy a Divan bed [Bern]

Hi Sally,

So many people seem confused,but I now what you mean.
You have to be English to know what a divan bed is

I was also looking for a 'normal' divan bed after more than two decades of being deprived of one.

I found this site which looks promising

www.BritishBedsWorldwide.com
