The new Designer Series of adjustable bases from Leggett & Platt were created to offer a more elegant solution than other adjustable beds in their class. These bases are offered with four color options so that these beds match the décor for most bedrooms. These new adjustable bases, models D-122, D-222 and D-222s appear to have been built on the reliable proven S-Cape model with a few upgrades and enhancements.
One of the common complaints we hear about adjustable beds is that they just don’t look as good as traditional beds. Leggett & Platt has taken a big step in addressing this problem. We would like to see more color options than just four, but the colors offered; ivory, brown sugar, dolphin, or chocolate should work for most rooms.
There are also matching headboards available but they are sold separately from the adjustable bases. The bases themselves are extremely nice, complete with sleek wireless remotes powered by the new, state-of-the-art, LP Connect™ electronics platform. Additionally, they come standard with the industry-leading safety system, LP Sense™.
The adjustable bases come with a full array of features as you would expect with a Leggett and Platt adjustable base.
The designer series has been well received in the marketplace and most of the limited reviews have been flattering. There are three models available, each with four color options and optional matching headboards. Leggett & Platt offers this adjustable bed with an excellent warranty.
In its flat position, it looks like a very nice piece of furniture. Gone is that hospital bed look that some of the older models have. This new bed does have a continuously variable dual massage which incorporates Leggett & Platt’s wave technology. Dual massage means that there are two separate areas of massage, one around the shoulders and one around the legs. The massage works very well on these models.
The Wireless remote is back-lit so it can be used in the dark. It has two programmable favorite settings and a separate button for Zero Gravity.
This bed also has Leggett & Platt’s Wallhugger® engineering which will lift you up while simultaneously gliding you back. That means adjusting the bed up or down will not move you away from your nightstand.
We were only able to review one of the three models offered, and only see it in one color. Since this is such a new product there are limited 3rd party reviews available to evaluate. We will adjust this review when more details become available. But if you are looking for an adjustable base that will fit the look of your current room, this may be the one.
Pricing: Pricecost.net reports the average street price on the D-222 is $1,650 for the Queen Size.
We recommend you do not buy this product online without first calling and talking to the retailer. There currently are some out-of-stock issues and this series has so many options that you are better off calling and finding out the details before you purchase.
