Amazing Beds

Cast iron beds of every shape and size. Our showroom is stocked with single/twin size bed frames ranging from 30” wide (also called a nun’s bed) through to 42” wide. Some are also suitable for conversion into day beds. There were far fewer single beds made so they are becoming scarcer with time. We offer several matched pairs or nearly identical pairs as well.

If you want, you can polish it back to its original shiny finish. Of course, many of our beds have no brass whatsoever so this is not a consideration.

Modern day brass is lacquered to maintain the brilliance of the brass without the need to polish.

Welcome to the home of the best Antique Cast Iron Beds in North America!

It’s not every day that we can take part in the preservation of history. Our collections of beds come from iron foundries large and small representing Canada, the United States and Great Britain.
