The mattress rests on the platform and a hydraulic system or tension spring will assist in accessing the storage area. The divan option is two or four drawers. Both options are neat and focus on storing spare linen with space being of larger quantity from the ottoman design. The design of the faux leather bed frame removes the need for a valance, providing easy access to storage.
