The Standard Bed was the design that Martin Walsh first made when he started Taurus back in 1979. We think that tells you in itself what a great design it is. All that’s changed is some improvements to the jointing techniques that we use now, but the design itself is identical. To be honest, it’s proved itself a bit of a classic in the design of wooden beds. (And is imitated by more than one of our competitors.) This is the original, however. With its simple elegance, and double rail headboard, the Standard Bed looks fantastic in both contemporary and more traditional looking bedrooms.
Specifying your bed
Use the finish selector to help you decide which finish would look best in your space. Then pick the size you want and tell us how many you’d like. (Well, sometimes people want more than one!) Once you’ve done that, carry on and add a mattress… and maybe some of our big, strong, wheeled underbed storage drawers. If you have questions, or need more details about any of our beds or bedroom furniture, just call us or use our contact form.
Bed sizes are always described using the size of the mattress the bed takes, so the dimensions you’ll see on our Bed Size menu are actually the length and width of the mattress. If you need the external dimensions of the wooden frame for this bed, add 4.75in (12cm) to the length and width.
Your Taurus wooden bed will be handbuilt for you in our factory to your exact choice of style, size and finish, as well as any bespoke adjustments you might ask for. Naturally, to build a beautiful, quality bed for you takes a few days. We aim to deliver beds in 10-14 days from receiving your order. We’ll agree your actual delivery date with you when we telephone you to confirm the order. If it’s important to you to have your bed sooner than 10-14 days, please tell us and we’ll see what we can do to help.

What people say
"I bought two Standard beds at the same time. One’s a double for our spare room for when either of our parents come to stay. The other is a Super King size for our bedroom. Even though I wanted the same bed in each room - partly because of its price - I wanted a different look for each room.
The spare room is fresh and very simple, and I chose the Beeswax finish. It looks great against the very pale blue walls in there, and my mum liked it so much she's actually bought exactly the same bed herself at home for her spare room. I wanted something a bit more special in our room, and so I went for the Dark Mahogany lacquer. It looks absolutely great. It just transforms it from being a lovely simple and unpretentious bed in one room, to being a real centrepiece in the other."
