Wrought Iron Beds For Your Next Home Decor Update

Wrought iron beds originally came into being as a solution for wooden beds that were developing parasites.  Whatever the “ick” factor of their origins might have been, though, they’re still going strong several centuries later, and of late, craftsmen have begun incorporating color and other touches of whimsicality into the boudoir classic.

One of the most popular purveyors of wrought iron beds to feminine tastemakers the globe over is, perhaps surprisingly, Anthropologie — the boho-chic retailer known mostly for its ethereal women’s fashions and thoughtfully-curated home accessories.

Several of “Anthro’s” beds are on display here in today’s series, as well as several others from bedmakers large and small.  Whichever one you favor, it’s sure to add a pop of quirkiness and character to any bedroom, and historically speaking, bedbugs certainly won’t be an issue — so, the way we see it, today’s collection is a win-win all around.  Sweet dreams!

This post was originally written in 2012 so these beds are now classic and may be found in places like eBay and other good second-hand retailers should your needs must. Wrought iron beds will normally lasta lifetime if they are good quality. It’s just the mattress that you really need to think about for your sleep.
