• New listingAntique Vintage Original early 20th Century French Double Bed Corbeille

    Beautiful early 20th century, all original condition upholstered french double bed. Brought back from France last month for our home but now selling. Could either be reupholstered or used as is. Has some damage to fabric on side piece ....please look at photos carefully to get true indication. I would personally just remove the upholstery on the side struts to reveal the wood. Clean and possibly wax. Having said that, the original paintwork has amazing patina. It Looks really beautiful! Sad to see it go. Please note there are no slats with this bed. Any questions please do ask. Thank you for looking.

  • New listingAntique Edwardian double satinwood dark wood frame bed with inlay

    Beautiful antique Edwardian wood frame bed in a standard double size. I believe the wood is satinwood, with a paler wood used for the decorative inlay panels. It has an iron frame underneath, and a solid base covered with ticking that sits on the frame. The wood base dates from around the 1950s. Good condition, with various light dents and scrapes as you'd expect from a piece of furniture of this age. Nothing affecting usability. Collection only from Bath. Please let me know if you need help arranging a courier.

Antique Beds

After a long and stressful day grinding away at work, the bed is the safe haven to fall into to shut down from the rest of the world. The bedroom is the most important part of the house. It is a space of tranquillity and calm. To set the perfect atmosphere in your room, it is important to make sure you have the perfect bed to match your desired appearance. Antique beds are a great way to accentuate a stylish, peaceful and practical bedroom space.

As the bed is the main attraction of the bedroom, antique beds add a touch of elegance that is rarely seen in the modern age. With intricate designs and beautifully crafted material, there is sure to be an antique bed for every décor in the 21st century.

Categories

There is a variety of antique beds from specific eras in history. The main materials seen within these categories are brass, mahogany, oak, walnut, wood and cast iron. Some of the most popular ones are discussed in detail below:

Pre-Victorian (Pre-1837) antique beds are mainly made of either iron or oak. Antique French style bed, ciel de lit half tester bed canopies, also feature in this category.

Victorian (1837-1901) beds have the same material plus brass, pine, walnut and wood. The focus is on cast iron and brass.

Reproduction Beds are mainly made out of mahogany.

Other categories include Edwardian (1901-1910) and 20th Century beds.

Style

Art Deco originated in the 1920s and was a movement that aimed to make anti-traditional designs that still carried elegance. It is a style that is synonymous with sophistication. Art Deco style antique beds are a good option for a room with modern designs.

Louis XV/Neoclassical designs originate from the mid-18th century. These beds are both stylish and graceful. They create a presence in the room, inviting you to cosy up into the bed with a good book.

Alternative styles include Italian, Louis XVI and Victorian.
