Bases

 

While all real mattresses can be used on almost any modern bed, usually timber slats, the combination of mattress and upholstered sprung base as an ensemble is is the ideal sleeping surface, and further extends the mattress life.
The ultimate: a triple-layered ensemble with mattress overlay.

Two designs of upholstered base that are available, that allow the ensemble to finish over a range of heights.

The real base is vastly superior to any comparable foundation, world-wide.
A fully upholstered inner
spring unit, boxed inside a timber frame, the life expectancy of the real base is in excess of 30 years.

The low-line base is designed to accommodate base heights below 10 in. - 250 mm., often required for antique and vintage beds.
