Side Panel Beds

Comments Off on Side Panel Beds

Here at Living It Up we are constantly striving to improve our existing range and are always looking for ways to make our large headboard beds more accessible to a wider range of customers. For many years we have been making beds with statement headboards such as the Arthur bed and whilst this bed has always been our best seller we have found that not everyone has a delivery access route suitable for a headboard of this size and therefore are restricted to the more simple designs with smaller headboards. We have spent a lot of time working closely with our manufacturer to come up with a solution and to create a statement headboard that has the flexibility of adding panels to create a larger size if desired.


Maxwell Upholstered Bed, With & Without Side Panels

We have recently added four new beds to our upholstered bed range that fit this brief and we’re sure that you’ll agree that these innovative designs are truly stunning. If you love the boutique hotel look and are looking to emulate this style at home you really should consider one of our side panel beds. Each of the styles are available to order with a standard headboard in varying designs, the genius bit is that you have the option to add on extra side panels which will be seamlessly attached by brackets to either side of the headboard to elongate the headboard and create a sensational feature of your bed. The side panels provide an impressive backdrop for your nightstands, giving that luxe hotel vibe.

Memphis & Emilio Upholstered Beds

As with all of our upholstered beds we have a vast range of fabric options featuring over 50 different colours varying from cool neutral greys and pretty pastels to jewel coloured velvets and everything in between. The beds are exclusively handcrafted for Living It Up using only the finest materials and we even guarantee our frames for 10 years we’re so confident in their construction. The four designs are also available to order with the option of added underbed storage in which the frame that supports the mattress is mounted to hydraulics that enable you to swiftly raise the mattress to reveal the entire base below for plenty of extra storage.

The Maxwell bed has been a popular choice with our customers so far and has a simple yet striking design with vertical panelling which looks even more impressive upholstered in our Beaufort Sedgewick Green velvet. The combination of the panelling with sumptuous velvet is heavenly and the presence of the headboard extending behind the bedside tables really makes them and their accessories stand out.

Another one of our popular side panels beds is the Memphis. This bed has a lovely Art Deco feel to it with it’s clean diagonal lines yet it also manages to look fabulously modern. This versatile design would look great in any home and the chevron pattern draws the eye to the headboard, making a sensational impact. We can guarantee you’ll wake up here every day feeling relaxed and refreshed as though you’ve just woken from a slumber in a luxury hotel, although you will have to make your own breakfast unfortunately!


You can find our other designs using the following links, we have the Vincent with stylish geometric panelling and the Emilio with contemporary line detail.

The Classy & Sophisticated Milano

Comments Off on The Classy & Sophisticated Milano

Living It Up’s Milano chair is the epitome of chic and perfectly represents the current trend in accent chairs. It’s not difficult to see why interior, fashion and lifestyle bloggers are swooning over this gorgeous brass and velvet combination and we’ve come up with our own take on the trend with a statement piece that won’t break the bank.

Milano 1000px.jpg
The Milano chair is the perfect fusion of retro and modern glamour. The frame of the chair is a stunning example of Art Deco design with it’s strong, geometric detail and the brass finish adds a luxurious feel that is so on trend now that gold has overtaken copper as the metal finish of choice in interior design. The Milano chair is upholstered in sumptuous velvet in two colour choices, Blossom Pink and Pacific Blue, both of which are so on trend as they complement a variety of decors perfectly, adding a vibrant pop of colour in the hottest shades. Blossom Pink is a beautiful blush hue that is delicately feminine and soft. We think the Milano chair in pink would make an eye catching living room accent chair or the perfect nursing chair for a baby girl’s nursery. Pacific blue is a rich, decadent navy that enhances the Art Deco look of the chair and provides a striking contrast against the brass frame. Pacific Blue would make a great bedroom or dressing room chair and adds a real statement of luxe and glamour.


The Milano chair is lovingly handcrafted by Lockwood and Croft exclusively for Living It Up and comfort has not been overlooked when creating this trendy design. The seat boasts high density foam padding that not only provides a plush and comfy seat but will also ensure the seat cushions do not sag and lose shape over time so the chair stays in tip top condition. The frame itself is made of stainless steel which is coated in an alluring brass finish that perfectly complements the enticing velvet upholstery.

Also available is a matching Milano footstool which has been created as the perfect companion to the chair with matching brass frame and velvet upholstery with luxurious button detailing encompassing high density foam.


The Milano is so much more than a chair, it’s a fashion statement that will become the envy of all of your guests and a timeless classic in the home.

Introducing our Bed in A Box

Alison ‘Bed in A Box’

Here at Living It Up we are very happy to introduce one of our newest and most creative products yet, our Bed In A Box! We are extremely proud of this new addition to our range, a lot of love and thought has gone into designing this innovative product and it is so versatile it is suitable for any room in any home. The Bed In A Box was created with our customers in mind who would like the option of extra sleeping space but perhaps don’t have the space for a sofa bed in their home. Sofa beds can sometimes be a bit chunky and cumbersome and therefore not an option where space is limited, if this is the case for you then our Bed In A Box is the perfect solution!

We have two stunning designs available to complement your existing decor and each come in a choice of over 50 fabric colours in various finishes. The same fabrics are used for our existing range of upholstered furniture so the Bed In A Box is able to blend seamlessly if you are looking to order this alongside one of our beds or sofas. Alternatively, it works beautifully as a standalone piece too.


The Milton is simple and modern and upholstered in luxurious European fabric, the box is padded with high density foam so it provides a comfortable seat when not in use as a bed.

The Alison has a gorgeous button tufted design with traditional deep buttoning creating the iconic ‘Chesterfield’ look that is synonymous with luxury and elegance and still so popular in interior design today. The Alison also includes high density padding for comfort.


Milton ‘Bed In A Box’

Our range of fabrics include rugged, strongly woven textile, velvet and wool like finishes so whether you are looking to colour match to blend in with existing furniture or make a statement with colour or texture there are plenty of options to choose from. We recommend injecting a little personality with a bold coloured velvet such as the jewelled tones of Sedgwick Green or Regency Blue, a look that is bang on trend right now and oh-so-Instagram-worthy! You can read about our range of fabrics and order some of our free fabric samples here.

The standard ‘regular’ sized Milton and Alison designs are so compact that they can fit into the smallest of spaces, their footprint is less than a metre square when in box mode and they appear to be nothing more than a simple storage footstool so won’t look out of place anywhere in the home, in fact, the Bed In A Box will actually provide a stylish place to perch or put your feet up so it won’t ever be taking up valuable space. Folding out the bed is effortless thanks to the simple mechanism that is easy and quick to use and once in place the bed is extremely sturdy, comfortable and a generous size (considering it has come from inside a box!). Should space allow both the Milton and Alison can be made larger in a two or even three seater size, the choice is yours! Whether in a child’s bedroom for sleepovers or in an office or living room as a guest bed, with the ingenious Bed In A Box the possibilities are endless.

Living It Up’s Guide to What Bed Size to Get

What Bed Size

When you are considering what bed size is right for you, the most important thing to get right is the balance between the mattress space you require and the size of your room.

Unlike some other UK retailers, Living It Up only manufactures beds that will fit standard UK mattress sizes.  This makes things much more convenient when purchasing a mattress or bed linen.  Some other UK retailers will use European sizes or their own bespoke bed measurements which will make finding matching mattress much more harder.
