If you’re looking for an all-rounded bed to create a cosy bedroom, the Dalton Bed will be the perfect addition.

In this guide, we’ll dive deeper and explore everything you need to know about the Dalton Collection, from its design intricacies and materials to its features and benefits.

Highlights of the Dalton Bed:

Here’s a TLDR of the Dalton Bed:

  • The Dalton Bed comes in two variations - one with built-in 3-drawer storage and one standard bed
  • The design features a tall wingback headboard that gives a cocooning and luxurious feel
  • There are subtle curves along the silhouette of the bed frame which elevates the otherwise boxy design
  • The Dalton Bed has a closed base which gives a grounding effect
  • While it fits into contemporary interiors, Dalton can also work well in modern farmhouse designs

The Dalton Bed: A breakdown

Material

The Dalton Bed is fully upholstered in fabric which is composed of 93% polyester and 7% linen. Polyester is known for its high durability and resistance to wear and tear, and gains additional strength when blended with linen - a natural fibre.

The bed frame is made from both engineered wood and plywood, which is a strategic choice that combines the strengths of each material to create a durable and stable bed. The storage bed includes metal tubes in the frame so the structural integrity is not compromised even with drawers.

The bed’s side legs are made from plastic, while the middle legs are made from solid wood to provide sturdy support when sleeping.

The bed slats are made from plywood, which is a commonly used material because of its strength, durability, and flexibility. The choice of plywood slats provides firm support for your mattress, preventing it from losing its shape over time.

Design

At first glance, the Dalton Bed captivates with its clean lines and sleek silhouette. The bed's minimalist charm contributes to its versatility, allowing it to complement various interior styles effortlessly.

Both the standard and storage beds have a tall, wingback headboard that provides a cocooning effect and gives a luxurious hotel-like feel. Aside from the luxurious aesthetics, the upholstered headboard provides functional comfort and makes it easy to match with your existing furniture.

The curved edges on the bed frame help soften its overall silhouette, adding a sense of fluidity and creating an inviting and harmonious atmosphere in the bedroom. The combination of straight lines and subtle curves achieves a balanced aesthetic that appeals to those who appreciate both modern and classic design elements.

The Dalton Storage Bed provides discreet storage for keeping your bedroom organised. There are three built-in drawers, two on each side of the bed and one at the foot of the bed. The side drawers have a maximum capacity of 15kg each, and the larger drawer has a capacity of 20kg. This gives you ample space to store bulky items like extra bedding and clothes.

There are also rollers at the base of these drawers to facilitate opening and closing, and magnets on the side drawers to secure them in place.

Style

While the Dalton beds exude a modern look that fits well into contemporary interior designs, the bed is extremely versatile and works well in various other interiors.

Whether you’re into the modern farmhouse bedroom or a Scandinavian look, the neutral-coloured upholstery and sleek design allow you to easily integrate it into your existing style.

For example, pairing the bed with wooden furniture and natural fibres like rattan can give you a rustic look. On the other hand, pairing it with leather pieces can exude a mid-century modern vibe in the bedroom.

The Dalton bed comes in two sizes you can choose from - queen and king sizes. You can also choose between two variations of the bed, the standard bed and one with storage compartments.

Maintenance and care

Because the Dalton beds are fully upholstered in fabric, cleaning the bed is a breeze. An occasional wipe-down and vacuuming can keep the bed frame in pristine condition.

Here are some pointers to take note of when it comes to maintenance and care:

  • When moving the bed, lift it at the base instead of dragging it
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and keep furniture away from any heating source to prevent fading or discolouration
  • Regularly vacuum using a brush attachment to remove dust and loose debris
  • Blot spills immediately and gently with a clean white cloth
  • Avoid placing rough or sharp objects on the surface
