About Us

Taurus Beds. Your personal wooden bed maker.

dowel drillings

Today, you can order a solid wood Taurus bed, or a piece of Taurus solid wood bedroom furniture, wherever you live and whatever time of day or night works best for you.

But, this wasn’t always the case.

For almost 40 years, we’ve been making fantastic wooden beds, order by order, and delivering them from our showroom at Swiss Cottage in North London.

Come and see us if you’re in the area. Lie on some mattresses. Have a little nap if you like.

Every wooden bed made to order

We don’t hold stock, because we make every wooden bed exactly as the customer who has ordered it would like it.

We have 24 different styles, all designed ourselves.

All (with the exception of our Cabin, Stacker and Trundle models) can be made in 7 different widths, from a 2’ 6” wide Small Single to a 6’ wide Super King.

Absolutely every one can then be ordered in any of 12 different finishes. Three different waxes. Five lacquers. And four paint colours.

Need more customisation than this?

Because we make every wooden bed to order, if you need your bed making as a truly bespoke order, we can do that for you.

So a standard order is where you choose the style, the width and the finish. But a bespoke order means that our expert bed builders will make your wooden bed as a complete one off for you.

We can make your bed with longer or shorter legs. We can make it exceptionally long or unusually short. We can make it an irregular width that isn’t in our range. And if you do order an unconventional sized bed, we can supply a specially made mattress to go with it, too.)

We can paint your wooden bed to match any colour in the Farrow & Ball paint range. Or we can supply it entirely unfinished for you to paint yourself.

Handbuilt in Nottinghamshire

All our wooden beds are made at our factory in Nottingham, by real, crafting furniture makers. They combine traditional skills and techniques with the best modern jointing techniques and components. The result is a great quality wooden bed, alongside wooden bed frames, made exactly as you want it, that will give you a blissful night’s sleep for years to come.

Our sprung mattresses are hand manufactured in London, by the maker who has been supplying us for more than twenty years.

Our memory foam mattresses are made in Britain, by Breasley, who we think are the best maker there is.

We sell a small number of divan beds too. These are made either by Breasley or, in the case of our own model, which offers exceptional value, by our mattress maker.

Our wooden bedroom furniture, and wooden bookcases are hand built, just like our wood beds, in our factory in Nottinghamshire. They can be made for you in any of our range of finishes.
