9 Metal Beds to Dream In

When my sister married and her new hubby carried her off to Michigan, I remember the white metal bed that graced their master bedroom. I wanted that bed. Badly. The desire stuck with me for many years and prompted me to purchase a white wrought iron daybed for my daughter Bridget when she graduated from her crib. Bridget has since grown up and moved out on her own, but my love for a beautiful metal bed remains. Today I’m sharing a collection of 9 metal beds to dream in!

The rustic antique bed pairs beautifully with the plush bedding in this farmhouse bedroom. The floral pillows and bird print above the bed lends a slight hint of femininity to the space. The metal bed is clearly the star of the room.

Even in a rustic farmhouse, a metal bed adds a bit of elegance. A brightly patterned pillow adds interest to the cushy bed.

A simple metal bed is the perfect touch to a farmhouse bedroom. Patterned quilts and rugs underfoot add texture and warmth. The simplicity of the decor is enhanced by the bed with its straight, no-nonsense lines.

I love this farmhouse bedroom with its homespun appeal. Note the use of more floral pillows on the bed. Are you noticing the theme throughout this post?  Floral patterns … which I’m going to blog about in the very near future.

  1. That is easy, my favorite is the Beach one and the house that goes with it. Usually you look at a photo and think ” I would change that or this ” but not a thing would I change. Love the gray with the little bit of red! Happy Holidays.

  2. My favorite one is the first one…no doubts about it!
    I love it!
    Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!
    Gods blessings and peace to you and your family!!

  3. Wow, it’s hard to pick a favorite! But, I think if I had to, I would choose #3, with #2 as a close second. They are all beautiful. Thank you so much for your posts- I look forward to them every day!

  4. I love all of them, but my favorite is the Victorian because the frame has space to add a painting (on canvas attached with hook and loop).
    Great post. Thank you

  5. My wife likes the bed that you describe a having “straight, no-nonsense lines.” Where could that bed be purchased?

  6. Glad that you reposted this! Can’t you just see that patterned room with white linen draperies??!
    Love ALL the beds. And rooms.

  7. I bought a Charles P. Rogers iron bed right before I retired and I love it, It is my forever bed, I have always loved them but couldn’t find a used or otherwise. Thank you for showing all these beauties.

  8. I love the looks of metal beds although I have never owned one. Think my favorite is the one with the blue and white quilt at the end of the bed. The window open with the black trim showing from the outside trim makes that room look so relaxing.

  9. The more ornate the better! Loved them all though. I can’t believe when my father’s parents gave up their farm and moved to town, they just left their wrought iron bedstead and a lot of other antiques with the house unlocked so trusting were people in rural Missouri in the late 50s. Of course, everything disappeared little by little. Would love to have that head- and footboard now.

  10. I was lucky enough to score a black iron bed at a Ladies Night Out Sale in our town a few years ago. After picking a discount out of a hat, I ended up paying only $80.00 for a beautiful twin size, very heavy, and sturdy beauty! I still love it in my spare room, and think all I need to refresh is a new floral pillow. Thanks for this post. I love all of them and the floral room with the red gingham is a definite thumbs up!

  11. I love the look of iron beds and have one myself. The only thing that I don’t like is trying to make the bed and have the bottom at the foot of the bed look good. It is hard to get all the blankets and sheets looking nice and tidy.
