Thanks for your question.
Our Ottoman base is our sturdiest base overall, being constructed using Canadian Spruce. It is a solid platform top giving any mattress that goes on top of it a firmer feel overall.
They are constructed using 800 newton gas struts, which will require a slight push to begin with but then the struts will take over the lift.
Our Ottoman bases are usually fine for use with any mattress, due to the platform top, but for specific advice about suitability we would always advise to speak to the manufacturer of the mattress.
In regards to fabric samples we can absolutely send some out for you but we would need the address details in order to do this.
Please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 0161 437 4419 at your earliest convenience in order to provide these details. We are open Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
Kind Regards, Lee.
