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.

3 Beds - Side Panels

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!
