With the sustainability movement in full swing, an increasing number of people are looking to furnish their homes with products that do not do long term damage to the environment.

One new such product, is the Koala Paddington Bed Base. A stylish, affordable and sustainably manufactured bed frame which is the second bed base to be launched by the company, Koala.

Koala Paddington Bed Base Review 1

Made to a very good quality, this stylish minimalistic-style bed frame has been designed to provide you with total comfort and a great quality of sleep.

It retails from about $990 for a single bed size and $1290 for a double. But don’t let that put you off buying it, because as bed bases go, this brand is hard to beat.

Here is why.

Purchase and delivery

Purchase and delivery

The Koala Paddington Bed Base can be conveniently ordered online through the company’s website. 

Should you need it in a hurry you can even get it delivered to you within four hours of you ordering it, if you live in the metropolitan area of any mainland state capital, and you pay an express fee. Otherwise, you can get free and fast delivery within a couple of days.

Irrespective of what delivery option you choose, the bed base will arrive in four distinct boxes.

You can even select, via a text message service, when you would like to receive the packages, out of several timeslots the company will make available you.


Assembling 1

A real selling point for the Koala Paddington Bed Base is its fabulous design, which makes it very straightforward to assemble.

Those who are DIY-challenged will be happy to note that you do not require any tools like screwdrivers, Allen keys or spanners to put it together.

Instead, it works rather like a connecting puzzle, which should only take between 5-10 minutes to assemble – though it is easier if there are two people available to do it.

If you do struggle with the instruction manual, (which honestly is pretty easy to decipher), the company also have a video you can watch online which will talk you through the process.



Once you have put it together the bed frame looks very impressive.

Oozing with contemporary style, it has a trendy, yet minimalist appearance that would compliment any bedroom colour scheme or décor.

It also features a nice, soft, padded headboard that is very comfortable to lie back on. So, you will be able to comfortably read, watch Netflix or even enjoy tea or breakfast in bed.

Rather conveniently, behind the headboard lies a storage shelf, which is a great place to put your books, extra bedding or maybe even your alarm clock.

The Paddington bed frame is a perfect fit for the company’s signature Koala mattress, which is known for its outstanding comfort.

The design also features upholstered side rails, which means you won’t experience the pain of banging your ankles, or shins, on the side of the frame in the middle of the night.

Stability and practicality

This bed base uses 4 ‘panel slats’ that are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). This assurance confirms the timber has been ethically sourced from legally run plantations.

When put together, the slats create a stable and even surface which should suit most mattresses. Overall, the build quality for this product is very good, and the bed frame can accommodate up to 240kg. While the panel slats allow for ample ventilation.

There is also at least 30 cm in height of storage space underneath the bed which is a real bonus. Especially in smaller bedrooms.

The bed frame also features padded sides that are made from recycled plastic bottles too.
