British bed brand turns 40 and unveils new products

British bespoke beds and mattress manufacturer Revival Beds has announced the launch of two new products to coincide with its 40-year anniversary milestone.

Established back in 1983, the business officially turned 40 during November last year and celebrated the occasion with the launch of two new four poster beds, the Winchester and Canterbury.

Reflecting on its history, Adrian Leary, Marketing Director and Co-Owner at Revival Beds, said: “The business was originally business to business, only with just a few bed designs. Today we are exclusive to end users and have over 30 bed designs in our collection that are handmade to order.

“The two founders retired six years ago and myself and my business partner purchased the business from them. We have both been with the business 15 years so we knew the previous owners well and the running of the business and remain good friends today.

“It’s amazing that the business has been going for 40 years, especially when you consider the business model is completely different to how it started. It shows how we have evolved over the years, but always stay true to believing in good customer service and products made the time-honoured way.”

Over the years, Revival Beds has extended its furniture and mattress offering, as well as new finishes to products and offering a bespoke service and mattress recycling. Furthermore, the company has plans to continue to grow its product portfolio during the year ahead, as Adrian continued: “We are looking to launch a new 14,000 pocket sprung mattress and promote our bespoke service more.

“We launched being able to order online a year ago and we will continue to develop that too. However, this is an extension to our service offering and customers will always be able to call us and speak to us in person.”

So far this year, Adrian added that the business has made a “great start” to 2024 following a downturn in sales in the prior year due to the economy and wider industry challenges. He said that there has been an increased demand for “quality” and “service”, which is where Revival Beds excels.

“We are finding a demand for quality products and a service to match, such as our free delivery and installation service. Our bespoke, made to measure service is always growing which shows a demand for customers wanting furniture made to their requirements. We’re excited for the year ahead.”
