Product details

The storage space under the bed holds everything from extra quilts and pillows to seasonal clothes. Or why not the ironing board?

Complete with boxes and dividers to make it easier to keep track of smaller things. STUK, SKUBB and STORSTABBE storage series have items which are perfectly suited for this.

You can sit up comfortably in bed thanks to the high headboard – just prop some pillows behind your back and you will have a comfortable place to read or watch TV.

This versatile bed frame will look great with your choice of textiles and bedroom furniture.

Perfect storage bedAngelaIf you are after a bed with lots of storage, this is the bed for you! Amazing amount of storage and easy to open and close. We have 3 of these beds in our house and everyone loves them!5
Worth the moneyAmandaIt is great! Well made, very sturdy. It is rather heavy to lift to open. It is great for storage underneath5
Lovely BedAnnetteI love this bed but had to pay someone to put it together , very complicated assembly I did pay ikea to arrange assembly but that didn’t happen because they were overbooked and a long wait so had to find someone myself5
Not true king sizeHayleyAfter being advised by an IKEA customer service rep that an Australian king mattress would fit on the IKEA 180x200cm frames, I went ahead with the purchase and challenge of putting it together. Only to have my new mattress delivered and not fit. Very frustrating.3
Gas Lift BedCarmenBought the double gas lift bed for the spare bedroom as it wasn't so long as a queen. The gas lift mechanism seems much sturdier than all the others out there in the market. Looks great in the room.5
New Bed and FurnitureGordonUsual good stuff from IKEA. Only a couple of minor mistakes in assembly,4

Black Queen Size Malm Ottoman BedKathleenAmazing, comfortable and great for storing all those extra boxes of memorabilia that I’ve kept that my children have made.5
Malm bed whiteKateLove the storage under the bed. We had one in dark brown first and when we moved homes, we just decided to get another one in a different colour. Simple, stylish, practical.5
So much storage!Sarah- Delivery was prompt and there was communication along every step of the way - Assembly took about 4 hours, but was straight forward - Our mattress weighs at least 50kg and the frame still (just) manages to lift it - The is SO much storage underneath - It is taller than I expected, however that's mainly because our mattress is so thick - Lifting the mattress requires a little bit of core strength to get it moving, then it just floats up the rest of the way5
Love this bedjuliaGreat storage solution very easy to use and our non ikea mattress fitted in perfectly.5
Lovely bed which gives back loads of spaceRebeccaWe love the bed - it gives us back loads of floor space which is just what we needed. It’s nice and high too5
Best nights sleep, good storageJillianI bought this bed with gas lift for more storage options. I find it's more accessible than pulling out drawers. It was a bit of a labour putting it together, definitely a 2 person job. If you have to move it, I think you'll have to fully disassemble, so if you're renting or planning on moving I wouldn't recommend this bed. I like the sprung slats, makes latex mattress very comfortable. I'm happy with my purchase.5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.

Function solution

Extra storage that won't take up extra space

MALM ottoman bed lets you turn the space you already use for sleeping into a smart place for storing. The gas piston and spring system make it easy and safe to open and close the bed without putting strain on your back. And that means you don't have to be super strong to get some super storage.
