Antique Reproduction Beds
‘We have been an exclusive bed-maker to a major antique reproduction company for over twenty years, who have sold our beds nationwide and internationally. We have made beds in over a hundred patterns for them. Recently this company has given us permission to offer some of these beds on our own website.
‘We are therefore pleased to offer these antique reproduction heirloom quality beds. A few patterns are shown but many more are available. These beds are made in solid wood, with posts in 4×4,” 5×5,” and even a 6×6″ size. They are constructed in the old style, with 8 bolts at the corners so that the bed can be completely disassembled for transport or storage. They are finished with hand-rubbed shellac over stain in a variety of colors. The customer may choose their preferred headboard style and sleeping height depending on the thickness of their bedding.
The beds are offered in the standard US sizes (King, CA King, Queen, Double, Twin) and in the European sizes per request. They can be made to accept box springs with mattresses, or as platform beds with a flat base for the mattress. We can also make headends (ie, headboard with two posts) to fit a customer’s bed-frame.
A few of our bed and bedpost styles are offered below. Most beds can be fitted with a blanket-rail at the foot if desired (carved to match the pattern on the posts). King and Queen bed pricing appears on our Ordering page but call for a specific quote on the other sizes, headboard styles, post patterns, and other options.

Available in Twin, Double, Queen, or King, as a complete bed to fit your bedding or as a headend to bolt to your steel bed-frame.

Note the very fine turnings on the top of the bedposts.

#058 Welsh Barley-twist Bed

#0730 NY Federal Bed
This is a very tall bed in 5×5″ post stock. The posts posts are 95″ tall but we can shorten them to fit in a bedroom with lower ceilings. The bedposts feature a long reeded section, intricate carving in the mid-section, and matching reed carving at the foot. The panelled headboard has a carved rolltop ending in rosettes.
#1283 Cape Cod Field Bed
This is a copy of an early Massachusetts bed with turned posts (no carving). The term ‘field bed’ implies posts about 60″ tall, making the bed easy to disassemble and transport. The raised ‘OG’ canopy gives headroom to this bed with medium height posts.
#2813 Caribbean Bed
This massive bed with 6×6″ solid posts and elaborate carving is a copy of an 18th century colonial bed. The headboard carving is based on a palm tree motif.
#3246 Tulip Top Bed
This turned bed (no carving) has delicate tulip-shaped figures on the post tops, and a footboard and blanket-roll at the foot. This photo is of the antique bed – our reproduction makes several changes to lower the sleeping height and refine the headboard figure.
#3738 George II Bed
This is a copy of an 18th century English bed. The posts feature elaborate leaf carving with a long delicate 5-sided reed and a heavy square foot. The tall curved headboard gives substance to the otherwise slender appearance of the bed.
#8651 Melon Bed
This a field height bed with a sassy melon reeded figure on the posts, and cute mini melon-carved finials. For an intimate enclosed feeling, order with our Semicircular canopy (shown) or our OG canopy (see photo of the Cape Cod Field bed). (Draperies not included).

Philadelphia Federal Bed
This is a classic Federal period design, with a broken arch headboard. The tall posts have a reeded section above a leaf carving and a tassel and drapery motif. We’re not sure why this bed is named ‘Pliladelphia.” Perhaps George Washington or Thomas Jefferson once slept in a bed like this in a mansion overlooking the Delaware river?
Acanthus III Bed
This beautifully-carved bed has a slender acanthus-leaf figure on the post, as well as carving on the octagonal block and the feet. We provide close-up photos so that you can see the quality of our wood-carvers’ work. Available in Queen, King, or European sizes. Add a straight or curved canopy to get an enclosed feel.
