Review of the Tessu Bed from Article

This article was originally posted on April 7th, 2021, and has since been updated to better serve our readers.

It’s amazing how much our styles change over time, especially if you are constantly updating your home like we are. When we first bought our home almost three years ago, I had a very different idea for our bedroom design. Boho-styled bedrooms were definitely trending, and I was sure we’d love that style for years to come.

Turns out, we’re not really “boho people” lol.

I read an article a few weeks ago (that I can’t find of course) that was talking about how you should take your time designing your home, and not rush the process. The article said it’s important because your home’s true style needs to be found over time. Which means buying all your furniture all at once can sometimes feel like a mistake later on.

Turns out we lean more towards mid-century modern mixed with cottage vintage. I love mixing old and new in our home. I guess we’ve learned more about ourselves over the past few years and we now understand our style a bit better.

What we Look for in a New Bed

Review of the Tessu bed from Article

I’ll be honest, Article totally caught my eye because of its affordable pricing and modern furniture.

I wasn’t looking to spend thousands of dollars on a new bed in our first home. But I knew we needed to buy something that was really well made, and that usually comes with a bigger price tag.

We also did a ton of research, I watched videos and asked friends who owned the bed if they liked it. Everyone I talked to loved it and surprisingly had nothing bad to say about it.

So I took a chance and we ordered it.

Is the Tessu Bed from Article, Sturdy?

A few years ago I bought an Ikea bed, and after a few months, it felt like it was falling apart. The bed wasn’t sturdy, and it became squeaky.

Since my husband is taller, I knew we wanted to make sure it was sturdy. Even our last bed wasn’t made well. The kids were jumping on it one day and broke the bed spring. Needless to say, they were immediately banned from jumping on beds ever again.

But. it’s been well over a year since we bought the Tessu Bed and I can honestly say that it is just as sturdy as it was the day we bought it. We aren’t super safe with it, but we aren’t super rough either.

I promise it is very well made, and if I knew what I know now. I wouldn’t have hesitated to buy the bed in the first place.

Out of all the beds I’ve owned, the Tessu is still the best quality and the best price.

Pros and Cons of the Tessu Bed from Article

We’ve had a ton of questions about the bed over the past year, so we thought we would add a few pros and cons for you. Hopefully, this will help you decide for yourself if it will work for you and your family.

The Pros of the Tessu Bed

  • It’s fast ship furniture (unlike other furniture shops that have a 6-month wait or more)
  • Easy delivery (the delivery guys did all the work and brought it into our house, we just unpacked it and put it together)
  • It was easy to put together and follow the instructions
  • It’s been over a year and the bed is still STURDY! (we got a ton of questions about that)
  • The colour we choose was perfect and exactly what it looks like online
  • Over all we were happy with the size and height of the bed

The Cons of the Tessu Bed

  • It’s put together with an Allen Key (I just hate putting furniture together that way)
  • I noticed a little dirt shows (from the kids)

But I hope my review of the Tessu Bed from Article helps make your decision a bit easier. It’s been over a year and a half and we are still very happy with it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for that style of bed.

    1. Hey Kylie!

      It’s a great bed, looks good and honestly the price is good too. Ours is the clay taupe. It’s a beautiful grey colour, and I need to update the pictures now that it’s spring and it just looks a lot lighter in our bedroom now.

      Hope you have a great day! Let me know if you have anymore questions 🙂

  2. I read your article and it’s exciting I love the way you put your colours together . Can’t wait to read more.

  3. After about a year from when this was written, how has the bed held up? Is it sturdy enough to have kids jump on? Still no creaking or movement? Thank you!

    1. Its actually held up amazing! our kids and my husband play around on it, always jumping and having fun. It does not creak and honestly, one of the best purchases. I don’t earn any money from these links or anything it’s just my opinion on this bed.

  4. Hi Stephanie–Thanks for the review, it’s great. Question for you, is yours a king bed? I have been seeing some of the reviews saying there is a gap between their king bed and this frame so you can see the slats. Did you notice or have any issue with gaps from the mattress to the ends of the frame? Thanks so much.

    1. Hey Aaron, thanks for reading the blog. I did notice when we rotate our mattress every few months that I can see the slats. I think because the king mattress has a shorter side. But it’s not noticeable, instead, I pull the mattress a little back from the headboard. But we actually reinforced the slats by adding a piece of plywood underneath it. I don’t think it needs it but we wanted the bed to last a really long time. Our kids jump on the bed daily and the frame is still good.

  5. Thank you for sharing this review! Can you share more on any staining that has happened? How easy/hard has it been to remove stains from the fabric?
