Velvet beds that guarantee a good night

Sumptuously seductive velvet beds to help you get some shut eye

We all know that getting a good night’s sleep aids our health and wellbeing and helps us be more productive at work. Bad news then, that sleep deprivation is at an all-time high in the UK – at least, according to a study by Barker and Stonehouse. It seems that just 15% of us are getting a good night’s sleep, with the majority of us going to bed far too late and settling for a less-than-optimal six hours sleep per night.

So, to offer a helping hand, we’ve found some of the most gorgeous and inviting beds out there to make getting a good night just that little bit more tempting. These 14 sumptuous velvet beds not only make a room softer, cosier and more inviting, they also add serious impact, glamour and style. Who knows, maybe you night owls will finally be getting to bed on time?
