Adjustable Slatted Bed Base French Corbeille Vintage & Antique Beds

The adjustable slatted bed base is shown here on a 140 cm by 190 cm ( 4 ft 6″ by 6 ft 3″ ) vintage French Corbeille bed.

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

It is suitable for many vintage and antique French and British beds measuring between 3 ft 9″ and 5 ft wide by a standard length of 6 ft 3″ long.

It can be used with metal and wooden framed beds.

Size:

  • The length is fixed at 188 cm long – to fit a 190 cm length bed.
  • The width is not notched and can extend to any size between 85 cm and 150 cm wide.
  • In particular it is excellent for the following size beds:
    • 3 ft 9″ x 6 ft 3″ – Large Single 115 cm x 190 cm
    • 4 ft x 6 ft 3″ – Small Double 120 cm x 190 cm
    • 4 ft 6″ x 6 ft 3″ – Standard Double 130 cm x 190 cm
    • 5 ft x 6 ft 3″- King Size width, but the length is 6 ft 3″ (190 cm ) not 6 ft 7″ (200 cm) like a standard UK king size.

Styles:

The adjustable slatted bed base can be used with many of the following types of beds.

Click the links for each associated listing.

  • It can also be used with modern beds, homemade beds and in bespoke sleeping areas in houses, boats or caravans.

Practicality

  • It is self supporting in the centre so needs no central support.
  • The width on the base is variable so you can always re-use this base with larger or smaller bed frames.
  • It is ideal for small narrow staircases when other fixed bed bases are too wide.

Fitting – Generic Information – See below for Corbeille bed fitting information.

  • The adjustable slatted bed base needs securing to most types of metal bed where it sits on top of the bed frame.
  • Because the width is movable, it can slide, so must be secured.
  • You can drill through the metal of the frame and bed and use bolts to secure it, or we can provide cable ties on request, free of charge. They work well, with ease and can be hidden.
  • Where the adjustable slatted bed base sits within a bed frame, for example, on wooden, upholstered or corbeille beds, it does not usually need securing. If the base does move, or you prefer to secure it, then again, you can use cable ties to secure it to your cross bars.

Specifications

  • This base has a dark blue metal frame with 27 lightly sprung hardwood slats with beech veneer finish.
  • The slats fit into strong black plastic brackets on the metal frame.
  • It comes with 4 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 adjustable slatted bed base to 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.

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.

Showing central support

Link for our blog on making cross bars and a central support for your French antique bed

Link for further information on different brackets and cross bars.

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 you feel that two cross bars alone, as shown here, are not sufficient support for your slats, then you can always add a third.

When you have cross bars, place the base onto them and simply pull the base apart to extend it. The base doesn’t move and doesn’t need to be fixed in place when used within the frame of a bed.

If however you feel you would like to secure it, you can always use cable ties to tie it to your cross bars, or drill through the metal frame into the cross bars if you prefer.

The rounded footboard means the adjustable bed base fits corbeille beds in a ‘V’ shape

Corbeille beds have a rounded footboard – so the internal measurements are smaller at the footboard end than at the headboard end.

The adjustable bed base is not notched; it slides in and out and can be stopped at any width.

On demi-corbeille beds this means that the footboard end will be  slightly smaller width than the top in order for it to fit into the curvature.

The adjustable bed base opens wider at the headboard end than at the footboard end.

On our 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 function perfectly well as a base for your mattress.
