Coloured frame

The Original bed frame is available in ten different colours, which you can pick and choose in the Auping configurator. We always combine your bed frame with a black Auping mesh base. By choosing a different colour for the bed legs, you can add contrast. Naturally, you can also choose to get them in the same colour.

We have designed three headboards and a table to perfectly match the Original’s design. Two upholstered headboards and a wooden headboard are available as options. The optional bedside table has a round shape and is available in 16 colours.

A Dutch Design Classic

The Original was designed in 2007 and is part of a family of iconic beds. The Original is inspired by one of Auping’s very first designs, the Cleopatra, which was designed by Dick Cordemeijer in 1953.

The Auping Original was awarded the Good Industrial Design Award (GIO) in 2014. In addition to industrial design, this award celebrates function, originality, innovation and environmental aspects.

Head boards

Three matching head boards are available for the Original: two upholstered head boards and one lacquered wooden head board.

Straight: a sleek wooden head board
This is a minimalist wooden head board with rounded corners. The head board is lacquered in one of the ten Auping lacquer colours at our factory in Deventer. Choose a matching or contrasting colour for your frame.

Outline: a thin and minimalist head board
The Outline is sleekly designed to match the minimalist design of the bed. The wooden base is upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and has a breathable lining which makes the head board nice and soft. We finish the upholstery with a subtle cord piping.

Stitch: a rugged, modern head board
Stitch is a rugged, rectangular head board with a thick cord piping. The quilted seams create a modern striped pattern. This head board is also available in two heights and has a breathable lining, which makes you feel extra comfortable when lying down.

Everything within reach

Do you like to keep a glass of water, a novel, or a notebook next to your bed? The matching table that we designed for the Original will hold these for you perfectly. This round, wooden table appears to float on the Original's sleek steel frame. Despite its size, the choice of finish is extensive. With 17 optional colours, you can choose whether or not to contrast it with your bed.

In your favourite colour

You can make the Auping Original as colourful as you like. Pick and choose between ten different colours for the bed frame and the bed legs, and no less than 17 colours for the wooden table. Mix and match and go for contrast, a colourful whole, or just simple, matching colours. The choose is yours. We are happy to advice you in one of our Auping Stores.

We powder coat the frame in your favourite colour. Thanks to the powder coat the paint is wear-resistant. You can choose from ten colours: 

Deep black - Pure white - Cool grey - Warm grey – Sand beige 
Pine green - Blush - Night blue - Dusty red - Royal blue

Sustainable design

A lifetime spend on just one bed. It sounds like a dream, but thanks to our robust steel frames, it’s a reality. Your Auping Original can last for generations.

The Original is partially made by hand and partially by machine in our sustainable factory in Deventer, the Netherlands. We combine craftsmanship with the latest developments in technology, ergonomics, and design. We upholster the headboards by hand to make sure that the fabric fits perfectly, we powder coat the frame to make it wear-resistant, and we paint the wooden tables with water-based lacquer. 

Smart design

The Original's minimalist design is also smart. The Original is easy to assemble and all parts are hidden so they don't interfere with the look and feel. Not only does the Original look beautiful, it’s also practical. The bed is very easy to assemble and disassemble. That makes moving it that much more enjoyable.

Smart combinations

You can also combine the Original with an upholstered mattress. This creates a nice combination of fabric and steel.

Wake up fresh and rejuvinated with your Auping bed base

A good bed base is very important while sleeping. You can dream wonderfully every night, because you and your mattress get the best support.

With the right bed base, your mattress also breathes better. All Auping bed bases are mesh bases. We construct them with braided steel, which has a fine open structure. Because the mesh base is 80 percent open, it ventilates extra well. This keeps your mattress in good condition for a long time.

Dream away on an Auping mesh base.

Auping Original with adjustable bed base

You can also get the Original with an adjustable bed base, the Auping Smart base. Auping smart bases are perfect when you have back pain or a persistent cough. Or of course if you like to read or watch Netflix in bed. You can adjust the back, leg, or head sections separately. You can also use the Auping Connect app on your smartphone or use the wireless remote control to operate the bed base. Does your bed partner snore? The Auping Smart base gives a gentle nudge the minute he or she starts snoring. This way you do not have to lie awake anymore.
