Carie Low FootendIron/Metal Bed Frame
Our colour matching service allows your bed to be painted in any colour from Dulux, Farrow & Ball, English Heritage Collection, Little Greene, Sanderson or Paint & Paper. Please provide the colour reference and name below. We will colour match your bed to this colour.
Long lasting base frames
Our beds come with a base frame as standard which is designed for a long life and are meticulously tested to British Standards. Find out more about our bed frames.
High quality materials
Our beds are made of thick gauge steel tubing which are welded and casted into place using traditional techniques. All our material is chosen so that they ensure our beds last a long time. We thoroughly inspect all material before we use them in our products. Any brass that we use is genuine solid brass castings and pipes rather than steel coated to look like brass.
Wooden sprung slat system
Our base frames come with sprung wooden slats which are 20% thicker than slats provided by other manufacturers. The gap between slats is 60mm and compatible with most mattresses available on the market.
Two height settings available
This bed frame comes with two standard frame height configurations, 14" and 17". You can choose the height setting at which you set the bed at the time of assembly. You may change the height setting at a later date if you choose to.
Headboard only available
This bed frame is available to be sold as only a headboard which can be used with a divan bed base frame. This is done either by mounting to a wall or attaching to a standard divan frame with fixings that are provided by us.

If you have any issues with your product please get in touch with us and if it's a manufacturing defect then we will fix your issue free of charge.

A single bed frame can only have 1 storage drawer whereas all our double beds can have 2 storage drawers.
I ordered the Hamilton Bed a few months ago and I can say it's the loveliest bed I've owned. Sturdy, well made and so beautiful, it was worth the wait! I love the fact that I could choose the height setting and the antique styling of this bed is true to era, perfect for Vintage loving me! This will be my bed for life!
We are really pleased with our Ashley Super King bed (black) ... The quality of the bed & mattress seems high especially for the price. Service was great throughout the process and was delivered within 1 week!! ... Easy to assemble but needed two of us! We would definitely use The Original Bed Company again in the future.
One of my better decisions was to buy quality with authentic brass fittings and a solid metal frame, worth the extra money ... The packaging and delivery were excellent ... I can highly recommend the company and its beds.
I purchased my bed from OBC having read up on how metal beds can vary dramatically in quality - I appreciated that a bed frame constructed from multiple parts was unlikely to last very long. I also wanted to store items under the bed so I didn't want support legs getting in the way. My OBC bed frame is exactly as they promised; strong, simple to construct (with no joints in the side lengths and no supporting legs) and most importantly, lovely to look at! I am absolutely thrilled!
