We had to rub our eyes to check we weren’t dreaming when we first saw these new designer-look beds from Argos (opens in new tab)’ new Heart of House collection.
With its deeply buttoned headboard and tufted fabric upholstery, we’d expected the Filby bedstead (above) to have price tag of £600-plus, but we were astonished to find it costs from just £199.99 for a double or £229.99 for a king size. Argos, with these beds, you're really spoiling us!
Its frame has solid wood feet and comes in a choice of two shades, Duck Egg Blue and Natural, although the latter is actually closer to grey.
Either would be perfect for relaxed, country-style homes and if you love the look, you might also want to invest in the matching Darcy chair, £249.99, and footstool, £149.99.
Again, these come in Duck Egg and Natural, as well as Lavender. Why not pop them in a corner near a window and create your own snug spot for reading… or curling up with a cheeky gin and tonic?
Anyway, you’ll sleep even more soundly knowing that these and all the upholstered products in the Heart of House range come with a two-year guarantee, while the upholstery frames themselves are guaranteed for five years.
If you fancy something a bit less upholstered, this Dorset spindle bed with its solid wood frame and stylish spindles would look great in any bedroom. Again, you have a choice of two finishes – Putty (shown) or Oak – and can opt for king size, £329.99, or double, £289.99.
We love the modern country vibe of the Putty finish, while the Oak would look great mixed in with a few pieces of mid-century-modern furniture and a couple of these cotton knitted pods, £49.99 each, at the end of the bed.
