The Classic Sleigh Bed
The classic sleigh bed – true to its name - is known by its curved headboard and footboard and its use of heavier woods; a design that resembles an old-fashioned sleigh. The more contemporary versions of the sleigh bed, while still represented by the curved headboard, may not necessarily have a footboard; and the curvature may be displayed in varying degrees. But no matter what the differences in one design to the next, the sleigh bed has an elegant and regal connotation, making it a favorite in bedrooms worldwide.
Classic furniture styles are deemed “classics” because they are in keeping with a traditional furniture style that was popular during another era. Modern furniture manufacturing practices may skew the design so that is in keeping with more contemporary craftsmanship, but the fundamentals of the design itself call upon the lines and materials inherent in the original conception. The classic sleigh bed, for instance, has had a resurgence in popularity over the past decade, but its origin rests in early 1800s French and American design – a part of design know as the Empire Period that was inspired from ancient Roman and Grecian empires. The French design was far smaller than the American version – designed to accommodate one person rather than two – but both countries saw great enthusiasm for sleigh beds during this time period.
