Our John Ryan Artisan bases are 12″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 14″ in total.
If drawers are added then the base height will be 13″ plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making 15″ in total.
Spring Edge Options
We provide two options on our sprung edge bases.
1. The Bonnell coil sprung edge base as our starter model
2. Pocket Sprung ‘True Edge’ base as our premium model
Both are full upholstered in our fabric selection.
This allows you to choose a base suitable for your budget and requirements. Both are an exceptionally high quality base and your preference will depend on how discerning you want to be about your sprung edge base!
Our timber frames are solid wood which is sourced from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved sources making it a sustainable choice. These solid wood frames are then upholstered with 600GSM of Cotton Wool Upholstery to give a soft padded feel to them.
Sprung Edge Bases Explained
Spring edging can be looked upon as a mini mattress between the main mattress and the base. It offers a progressive support that dampens the strain of weight from the user. This significantly improves the overall comfort level of a mattress. This difference in comfort is often described as ‘Softer’ when compared to a Platform top divan equivalent.
The use of a sprung edged base also has the tendency to increase the lifespan of the mattress. The theory being that the actual springs inside the mattress are sharing the load with a further set of springs within the base.
Drawer Details and Headboard Fixings
The drawers on the Artisan bases are 32″ wide, 20″ deep and 9″ high.
You can have 2 or 4 drawer options. If using bedside tables you may want to have 2 full size and 2 continental drawers so the drawers next to the bedside tables can be opened fully.
Continental drawers will have the same depth and height as the normal, but width will be 17.5 inches.
