What makes our iron beds & metal bed frames special?
Iron beds are mostly valued for their durability, stylish elegance, cost effective features and versatility. Their everlasting design means you can pass one down from generation to generation.
Cast and wrought iron bed frames were introduced at the end of the 19th century, in the Victorian age. Vintage iron bed frames were handmade from pouring the iron and polishing detailed castings to the last finishing touches.
The Original Bed Company has been working with these traditional techniques for the last 20 years. Till today we produce beautifully handcrafted metal bed frames. Each of our beds is hand cast with attention to every little detail.
While there are a lot of cheaper metal bed frames in the Indian market, our metal bed frames are designed to be sturdy and built to last. Our beds are better engineered, can withstand more weight and last longer all the while having better fit and finish. Our packaging is designed to endure the journey from us to your home.
What bedroom styles are metal beds suitable for?
Our iron bed designs are suitable for many bedroom styles. They can be made to feel at home in contemporary, cottage, vintage, shabby chic, grandmillenial and many other bedrooms. Our range of metal bed frames designs makes it possible for you to create your own bedroom style.

Iron and brass beds finish
Our cast iron bed frames are painted in a durable powder coated finish that is designed to withstand the daily rigours of life. Some designs also mix the painted iron with brass finials. The contrast between the metals lifts the overall look of the bed. All our brass is hand casted which is then antiqued and then lacquered with a durable protective coating. These brass parts can be usually replaced for either a chromed finish or a painted finish as well.
What colours are metal bed frames available in?
Iron bed frames are available in traditional colours such as black, white, ivory, silver or pewter. They can also be painted in bespoke colours such as lighter baby blues, powder pinks, aquamarine greens or dark metal bed frames such as navy blues or shades of black. Black metal bed frames, ivory metal bed frames and white wrought iron beds are the most popular.
Low iron bed frames
In today's world, where space is at a premium, our range of low metal beds allow a better use of space in smaller rooms. These beds particularly have lower footends which people prefer. While low iron bed frames are growing in popularity, our higher footend iron bedsteads are still very popular. The higher end bedsteads are particularly suited to more traditional settings like a cottage or a farmhouse decor.
What are your cast iron beds storage options?
Metal frame beds make it easier to use the space under the bed as storage. Using wicker baskets or rolling drawers is a clean and convenient storage option. The Original Bed Co. also has an underbed drawer storage option available to fit on all metal beds in our collection. This makes it easier to clean underneath our iron beds with storage.
This metal bed with storage option is designed for winter clothes, bed linen, pillows and other soft furnishings. The storage drawers run on rollers and are raised off the ground which makes it easier to clean underneath our iron beds.
Are metal beds durable?
Metal beds are more portable than other types of bed frames. For people who tend to move often strong metal bed frames survive moves better than wooden or upholstered beds. Metal which has been painted with our durable finish is able to withstand more punishment than wood and won’t rip like upholstery. Dismantling and assembling our metal bed will also not compromise their life in any way, making them one of the most durable bed frame options.
How do I take care of my metal bed frames?
Maintenance of an iron bedstead is relatively easy, it should be kept clean and as dry as possible. A dry cloth can be used to wipe down the cast iron bed frame every so often to keep it dust free. A wrought iron bed frame will not stain easily and any spills can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth followed by a dry cloth. Tightening the bolts yearly also makes sure it never squeaks.
