Beds & Headboards

The bed is a lot more to us than just a place to sleep. They’ve become a private refuge, a status symbol, a centre piece of domestic life, a display of fine craftsmanship and even a work of art.

The bed first became a status symbol around the 14th Century.  For the chosen few, ornately carved bedsteads,  often gilt, bejewelled, and painted with detailed images were topped with thick feather or down mattresses and dressed with fine linen sheets. The entire bed was covered with woollen blankets and silk coverlets, and surrounded by sumptuous curtains of velvet and brocade. These beds were not only raised, but were often so high that a step or small ladder was needed to get into them.  The Four Poster Bed or “Tester” became popular in the 13th & 14th Centuries.  Canopies were often suspended from the ceiling above the bed, or more commonly, built onto or around the bed. Fabric curtains hung either all the way or part way around the bed to provide additional warmth & privacy. A half tester bed  has an elaborate headboard and footboard with turned or carved posts at each corner.

French style beds emanate great style with  fine curves and upholstered headboards and footboards providing a distinctive  Parisian look.

Comfort is key in bedding.  Made to measure and choice of inner spring mattresses are available for all beds.
