What is a divan?

A divan, known in the US as a ‘box spring’ consists of a frame, (usually wooden) to which a tray of upright springs is attached. The entire unit is finished on top with a comfort layer and upholstered with fabric or leather, synthetic or otherwise. Placing the divan on legs and adding an upholstered headboard gives us what is known as a ‘divan bed’.

Which mattress?

A pocket spring mattress goes with a divan. Each pocket spring in the mattress will be given optimum support on the divan in order to compress and recover correctly. The fact that each spring can move separately in its pocket means that our body contour will be followed faithfully and supported.

Something for everyone

A divan will fit in with any interior. Traditional, modern, contemporary, lounge, etc. With the various leg sets, headboards, fabrics and leather, synthetic or otherwise, as well as accessories, there is always a divan bed to suit your bedroom.

Electrically adjustable

A divan is also available as an electrically adjustable base with 2, 3, 4 and up to as many as 7 motors (depending on the manufacturer’s capabilities). 

Can a divan be used in a bed frame too?
