The underside of our divan doesn’t escape our exacting standards, being upholstered in natural hessian for a consistently high-end finish throughout the piece. This attests to our commitment to excellence in each and every detail.

Such unparalleled quality enables us to confidently offer a remarkable 30-year guarantee on our shallow divan bases, a testament to their enduring longevity.

Our high divan bases set the standard for quality and durability in the industry, surpassing our competitors in craftsmanship, materials, and longevity. They are meticulously crafted using solid British wood, ensuring a robust and sturdy structure. Unlike many competitors, we do not use glue in our process, maintaining the natural integrity and strength of the wood.
Our shallow divan base, filled with pocket springs, coir, and British fleece wool and cotton, remarkably amplifies the comfort and overall feel of your mattress, particularly a Winstons mattress. Upon lying on this base, you’ll instantly discern the heightened support, meticulously tailored to your body’s shape.
Each pocket spring within the base individually reacts to your weight and movement, offering a customisable and responsive support mechanism that harmonises flawlessly with your mattress. This results in a well-distributed support across your body, mitigating pressure points and boosting comfort.

Concurrently, the British fleece wool and cotton impart a layer of softness and breathability, assisting in temperature regulation and fostering a cool and inviting sleep environment.
As our esteemed customer, you’ll savour an unparalleled fusion of comfort, support, and luxury. The shallow divan base not only complements but accentuates the feel of your Winstons mattress, affording you an elevated sleep experience that is both soothing and invigorating.
