French Corbeille Bed & Upholstered Bed Adjustable Slatted Bed Base

This new adjustable bed base is for use on standard size 4 ft 6″ double beds, as well as odd sized beds, in either metal or wood.

It is suitable for most vintage and antique French beds between 3 ft 9″ and 5 ft wide.

It is suitable for many English Victorian iron and brass beds, and other English antique beds, but contact us if you are unsure.

Details:

Demi Corbeille Beds

These beds have a rounded footboard – so the measurements are not exactly square.

The adjustable bed base allows you to pull the base out and lay it flat onto the wooden cross bars fitted to the sides of the bed (see below).

Because the bed is not quite square, the metal frame of the slatted bed base does not butt right up to the wooden sides of the bed. On our bed for example it lays aprox. 3.5 cm in from the sides at the bottom of the bed and aprox. 2 cm in from the sides at the headboard end. However, it will still function perfectly well as a base for your mattress.

  • The length is fixed at 6 ft 3″, the width is variable and we use this base with the following size beds:
    • 3 ft 9″ x 6 ft 3″ – Large Single
    • 4 ft x 6 ft 3″ – Small Double
    • 4 ft 6″ x 6 ft 3″ – Standard Double
    • 5 ft x 6 ft 3″- King size width, but the length is 6 ft 3″, not 6 ft 7″ like a standard UK king size.
    • The base can be used with some 6 ft 7″ long king size beds, depending on their structure. Please discuss with us.
  • It is self supporting in the centre so needs no central support.
  • It can be used in caravan design or bespoke sleeping areas.
  • The base slides / extends to the size you need, it is not notched, therefore:
    • it usually needs securing to metal beds where it lies on top of the bed frame. We supply cable ties to do this, which work well, with ease and can be hidden.
    • it usually does not need securing on wooden beds, where it sits within the frame of the bed.
  • With a variable width you can always re-use this base with larger or smaller bed frames.
  • It is ideal for small narrow staircases when other bed bases are too wide.
  • Click to view this base on a variety of other beds.

Specifications

  • This base has a dark blue metal frame with 27 lightly sprung beech slats.
  • The slats fit into strong black plastic brackets on the metal frame.
  • It comes with 8 end caps which can be moved to the ends on show.
  • The base weighs approximately 20kg and is shipped in its smallest form approximately 85 x 188 cm.

Fitting the base to a French Corbeille  bed:

The photos below show the adjustable slatted bed base on an upholstered Demi – Corbeille French double bed measuring 140 cm wide by 190 cm in length.

Most Corbeille beds have a fixed cross bar on the footboard and then a metal bracket on either side at the headboard end of the bed which holds a 2nd removable cross bar.

We add a central support to both cross bars to help strengthen the structure by taking the weight of base, mattress and ultimately you.

If your bed does not have cross bars, then you need to replace them and we recommend you add the central support which is a simple task. 

Click here for our blog on making cross bars and a central support for your French antique bed.

If you feel that two cross bars alone, as shown here, are not sufficient support for your slats, then you can always add a third in the centre or a wooden ledge, normally the two cross bars work well on their own.

To widen the base, just pull the slats apart and lay them down on your supports.

The base does not move nor does it need to be fixed in place when used within the side pieces of the bed.

If your bed is of a slightly different construction then the slats may still fit, if you are in doubt please contact us and we will provide some advice.

Length

  • 6ft 2 (188 cm)

Width

  • 2 ft 9 to 5 ft 2 inches (85 cm to 158 cm)

Height

  • The height varies depending on how the base sits on your bed. On the Corbeille bed in this listing the base sits on the wooden cross bars so the height is 5cm – when this base sits on a metal bed, resting on all 4 corners of the bed the height of the base is slightly higher at 7.5cm.

Weight

  • Aprox.20 Kg
Part Number: 210109-SO6
