The Besley Bed was one of the most popular bed frames sold by MADE. It combined simplicity and modernity to beautifully complement a variety of interiors.

However, MADE filed for insolvency on 1 November, 2022 and didn’t take any new orders for over a year. Also, there are no customer reviews or photos left on their website about the new Besley Bed. 

Below are two alternative beds you can check out instead:

Delivery Information:

At present, home delivery is available from MADE for a fee, that ranges between £6-£39 depending on the bed type and size you’ve selected. Customers are required to assemble the frame themselves. You should receive your bed frame within 4-16 weeks of placing your order, depending on the size/colour/type you’ve selected. 

You’re able to order a fabric sample from MADE to check in advance whether your chosen fabric is suitable for the interior of your bedroom. You can also check out the Roscoe Bed by MADE which has a similar design, but comes with wooden legs instead of metal ones.

The Besley frame is truly stylish and suitable for so many interiors, and the fact that you can select your size and colour makes it even more appealing. Let’s take a look at what those that have purchased the bed think of it, and see if it lives up to all of the hype.

Besley Bed by MADE Reviews

On September 2022 there were 310 reviews on MADE’s website, which gave the Besley Bed an impressive 4.7 out of 5 star rating. Nearly all customers unanimously agreeing that the frame is both high-quality and represents great value for money. 


The reviewers seem extremely pleased with the way the bed looks once it has been assembled, with people buying it for their master, guest, and kids bedrooms. It seems that the Besley has the ability to look good in a variety of interiors, and this is something that is undoubtedly backed up by the reviewers.


As with many bed frames, should you look at some of the negative reviews, several customers have complained about the difficulty of assembling the Besley Ottoman bed. While this shouldn’t necessarily deter you from purchasing the frame, you should consider that you will need to be patient, and may even need to recruit a family member or friend to help you put the bed together.

Yet considering assembly is the only real criticism that customers have had when it comes to the Besley frame, it’s safe to say that should you purchase it, you will be very happy with the final product, and you will be thrilled with the way it looks in your room.
