Antique iron beds are probably the most adaptable piece of furniture you’ll ever come across. And nothing can determine how appropriate your bed is going to look in your bedroom and blend with your color scheme and linens than a custom painted finish. Many people have the preconceived notion that an iron bed was and should be “white”. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Back in the 1800’s bed manufacturers offered their customers every color and color combination of the rainbow…….from pastels to primaries……from glossy to flat. There was little that wasn’t available. To make life easier in modern times, reproducers, not wanting to confuse the public into thinking there were lots of options, decided to offer white and black. The iron beds we do for our customers mimic the old color combinations with whatever degree of age and distressing they want. The finish on an iron bed can determine how serious or whimsical it is or how masculine or feminine it can be. Iron beds and their finishes should reflect the personality of their owner. If you’re spending a third of your life in a bed and it’s and iron bed…….why not have it refinishes exactly the way you want it to look. The possibilities are endless…..here are a few of our more popular finishes. Take note of how diverse they are.
