I Love Brass Beds!

Updated on September 14, 2014

Do You Love Brass Beds As Much As I Do?

You remember that enormous brass bed on the '70s comedy show "Love American Style?" On second thought, maybe you don't! (I'm telling my age, folks!) I've always wanted that bed!

Fast forward a "few" years--to 2011 . . . now I'm actually looking to buy a brass bed. I would prefer an antique, but, not only are they expensive, they're also very hard to find. And to make the quest even more difficult, I want a king size bed. I don't ask for much, do I?

I hope that creating a lens about brass beds will help me decide what type of brass bed to buy. Heck, even if I don't buy a bed, I'll at least have fun putting them in this Squidoo scrapbook of sorts! :)

A Dozen Brass Beauties

Here are a dozen "to die for" brass beds that I have gathered from the net. I love them all, but I seem to be drawn to the "Lochranza," "Clairemont," and the antique brass "Sleigh" bed. Although the beds featured at "OBC Original Bedstead" are in the U.K., they do ship to the U.S., with free delivery to any part of the U.S. within 7 to 14 days of receipt of payment.

Scroll down and view my beautiful collection of brass beds, then vote for your favorite!

# 1--Charleston Antique Brass Canopy Bed

Isn't this a dream? If I had this bed, I would feel just like Scarlett O'hara from "Gone With the Wind.

Purchase at Amazon.com.

# 2--Solid Brass Sleigh Bed with Antique Finish

Isn't this a beauty? It's also available in polished brass, or stainless steel and brass. Just one more reason why I can't make my mind up about what kind of brass bed to buy!

Purchase at Charles P Rogers Beds Direct.

# 3--Montrose Brass Bedstead

This one has a bit of an Asian flair to it. Ornate and very Victorian-looking. I love it!

Purchase at OBC Original Bedstead.

# 4--Hillsdale Ocean Park Brass Bed

Isn't this lovely? With its spindled effect and ball finials, it has old-fashioned charm, but the inverted lines update it, giving it a modern twist. I find the antique brass finish and curved lines very chic and elegant.

Purchase at Amazon.com.

# 5--Clairemont Brass Bed

Isn't this bed incredible? It's also a favorite of mine. I love the combination of scrollwork and finials, and the massive cannonball knobs on the posts really finish off the look. A very dramatic and feminine bed.

Purchase at Charles P. Rogers Beds Direct.

# 6--Caldermill Brass Bed

This brass bed features elegant 19th century French styling. I love the upward and downward sweep of the frame; it reminds me of a bird's wings.

Purchase at OBC Original Bedstead.

# 7--Powell Crestview Vintage Brass Bed

Since the headboard and footboard are sold separately, you may purchase only the headboard if desired. This bed has a bit of Mediterranean flair to it. I love the combination of swirls and straight lines.

Purchase at Amazon.com

# 8--Lilian Lustre Gold Finish Brass Twin Bed

This brass bed is of a more traditional style. The outward swirls resemble rams horns; being an aries, I kind of like that. :)

Purchase at Amazon.com

# 9--Ayr Brass Bed

This bed has an unusual wreath style motif and urn-shaped finials.

Purchase at OBC Original Bedstead.

# 10--Rainbow Brass Bed

I love the name of this bed--who doesn't love rainbows? The curved footboard and headboard are actually shaped like rainbows (who knows, there may be a pot of gold at the end of those rainbows!), and the spindle design is lovely. This bed is a more traditional style, and is also available in polished brass.

Purchase at Charles P. Rogers Beds Direct.

# 11--Georgian Brass Bed

This lovely antique brass bed features an intricate design composed of "S" swirls, which forms a beautiful and unique pattern. It comes with headboard, footboard, and frame.

Purchase at Amazon.com.

# 12--Lochranza Brass Bed

This ultra feminine bed is one of my favorites. The design features a beautiful filigree effect with spindle design at the bottom.

Purchase at OBC Original Bedstead.

      I was given an inexpensive white metal daybed with brass cannonball finials. Only three survived, and they are in need of replacement. Do you know anywhere that I can find four inexpensive matching finials that have the brass plate to cover the screw hole?

      @anonymous: Not sure where you can find those parts, but I would suggest looking on eBay. You can find unusual items there at great prices. Good luck!

      Good day to all!

      For the past 35 years I have owned an original Victorian Canopy Brass Bedstead, circa 1863. I originally had it brought to Canada (where it now resides) from St. Tropez (French Riviera) in 1978. I have had it cleaned, polished and lacquered to bring it back to it's original bright brass gleaming condition (not to worry, the darker mellow patina will occur over time.). If interested in seeing pictures of this bed(stead) please drop me a line at tekrent@tekrent.com here in Canada. I may consider selling this beautiful bed in the days and months to come!

      My name is Susan Williams, I live in South Carolina and have an antique full size brass bed that I would love to sell. It is from the 1850s all orginial, cast iron rollers, no varnish on it. It is in need of cleaning. If you are interesting ,please let me know.

      What a gorgeous collection you've assembled here. I wish Me-TV would include "Love American Style" in their lineup. It would probably create a renewed interest in brass beds!
