Choosing the perfect bed base

All our timber options are extremely strong and come with a lifetime guarantee against any break or even squeak. They also all come from certified plantations that pass strict sustainability and eco-friendly regulations (read more below). 

pine

Grown in New Zealand, our plantation Pine is a light cream to yellow colour. It contains some darker lines and natural knots for a unique look.

jarrah

Grown right here in WA, Jarrah is not found anywhere else. It has a deep reddish-brown colour and is naturally termite and water-resistant

oak

Grown in Victoria, Australia, our premium Oak is stronger and slightly browner than our Pine, with fewer knots for a consistent, smooth look.

High-quality, sustainable & eco-friendly

We don’t hide behind technical lingo – we simply use the highest-quality, most-trusted natural materials available on the worldwide market today. Beyond our many eco-accreditations, importantly, all our main materials are 100% sustainably-sourced – meaning there are no lasting effects on the environment.

Read more below…

When we choose sustainably and responsibly harvested timber over other materials, we reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and their consequent carbon emissions. Aluminium, steel, concrete and plastic are not produced from renewable sources. Our timber is sustainable, carbon sequestering and natural – it is actually ‘better than carbon neutral’ due to carbon stored during photosynthesis! Further, it is extremely strong, relatively lightweight and looks great!

Not only is timber the only truly renewable building material, all our timbers come from 100% regrown plantation forests that have been independently certified to strict Australian and international standards (learn more below).

  • All our timber comes from certified 100% regrown plantation forests
  • Just like the Quokka, our popular Jarrah wood is only found in one place in the world: the south-west of Western Australia!
  • We source our high-quality Pine from New Zealand and Oak from Victoria, Australia

We are also proud to share that all our timber suppliers adhere to the following wildly recognised certifications:

  • Australian Forestry Standard (AS4708:2013), which is internationally recognised by the Program for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification (PEFC).
  • Further, all suppliers passed international certification for effective Environmental Management Systems (ISO14001:2015).

Our 100% natural orange oil varnish is one of the most natural and healthy furniture varnishes on the market. It contains no silicone, toluene or any other harsh chemical additives found in some other varnishes. It is also a natural barrier and active resistant of mould and mildew – and is even rated as food safe!

  • 100% natural and mould-resistant with no harsh chemicals
  • Safe enough to eat off!

We’ve been using the same brackets for over 20 years with absolutely no issues – these things are the tried and tested winner for complete strength and ease-of-use. Click here to view our 17-second video of how to construct your bed.

  • World-respected strength and durability from Häfele, and extremely easy to use
  • ISO certified manufacturer for both Quality and Environmental Systems Management

"Great Latex mattress"

We were after a latex mattress to replace an old innerspring one due to health concerns. Looked at heaps of different ones and the prices always seemed super expensive. We found Brett's and they were locally made, quick turnaround and well priced compared to others. Couldn't be happier.

We purchased a custom made king size marri bed from Brett's Futons, after being sadly disappointed at the lack of local timber used in bed frames from the major bed retailers. The bed frame is beautifully made and has a unique design with a central supporting beam and leg so it won't dip in the middle over time. Excellent value too, paid slightly less than the ugly ensemble bases. Would recommend this company to anyone.

We have purchased from Bretts Futons a few times over the years having bought 3 mattresses as well as a Futon bed frame. The quality of mattresses is excellent, they have been super comfortable and have lasted many years. The service has always been courteous with quick turn around times. I would recommend visiting Bretts for your bedding needs.

I have purchased several beds over the last 25 years from Brett's. Lost several in separations. They are robustly made and look good in any setting. Definitely the most comfortable bed I've ever had. Highly recommended.

"Best mattress I've ever had!"
Read More
We bought a queen latex mattress (firm) a year ago, and I can honestly say it's the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned. We ordered it at a busy time of year so there was a 2 week wait, but from the day we brought it home we both loved it. We both have bad backs and have had no back pain whilst sleeping since buying it...even during pregnancy I felt fully supported and never had an ache. I also love that it's natural latex covered in a layer of wool and then cotton. Not organic, but certainly a lot better than most mattresses on the market! I was a bit surprised that the cotton fabric covering it is so thin; the futon we previously owned had a really heavy calico which I did prefer. But with a good mattress protector (we use a huge wool blanket) we've not had any issues. I would definitely recommend Brett's as the best place in Perth to buy a mattress.

I bought a queen size latex/foam mattress from Brett's after he gave me detailed information and advice as I have longstanding back pain. I have slept on the mattress on my bed with slats for a few months now and I'm pleased to say that my back pain has reduced significantly and most nights I have no pain whilst sleeping. I also got a latex memory pillow from Brett and this has eliminated my shoulder discomfort. I would highly recommend Brett's for your bedding needs.
