What customers say
This is my 3rd bed from The OBC and as always it’s amazing quality for a very good price ... Someone always answers the phone and they’re friendly and helpful. I like speaking to someone who is in the shop...
We had an amazing experience with The Original Bed Co. Not only are their products incredibly high quality but also their customer services worked perfectly as well ... I would 100% recommend this company.
Nothing flimsy here! Well made, very sturdy, easy to assemble. Delivery within a week, fantastic delivery communications. Great choice of bed frames ... SO GOOD, GOING TO ORDER ANOTHER!
I first ordered from OBC over 10 years ago, I still have the bed I ordered and it’s still going strong. So much so that we ordered the same bed in super-king size when we needed a new bed frame for our bedroom...
About our Brass Bed Frames
Today, a bed is the centrepiece of the bedroom that dominates the décor of a bedroom. An antique brass bed frame is indeed quite the unique centrepiece, well worth its price, having been around since the Victorian era.

Brass is the combination of copper and zinc. As a material, the best advantages of brass lies in its strength, resistance to corrosion and formability. This makes it a raw material favoured for long lasting hand made products even though it is expensive. It is also possible to melt down to recycle and reuse.
Our range suits a variety of bedroom styles. From classic romantic French to elegant and curvy antique Victorian to country cottages or even old Victorian city builds. We also have some frames which have a more contemporary minimalistic style, ideal for modern homes.
Why are pure brass beds better than brass plated beds?
The Original Bed Co is proud of its skills that have been developed through generations of expertise to hand craft pure brass beds. Unlike other brass bed frames, the headboards and footboards of our hand made brass bed frames are made of pure brass tubes and pure brass castings.
In this modern day it is rare to find beds made of pure brass. Even if you search for them. Most brass bed manufacturers, who used to make solid brass bed frames, have moved to designs using electroplated brass tubes rather than pure brass all the way through. A bed company making traditional brass beds is truly unique.
This is the main reason our bed frames are more expensive than other beds which only have a brass finish. However, we do consider this an investment and a pure solid brass bed frame should keep its value over time.
How to take care of your brass bed?
The tubes and castings are antiqued and then protected with a clear protective lacquer to prevent oxidation and deterioration of the frame and are maintenance free. Over time, the brass will tarnish naturally even with a protective coating but it should take more than a few years.
Even if the lacquer wears away with age your bed can be cared for by using metal polishing agents available in most hardware stores. A brass bedstead that is made to last should be a permanent fixture in your home for a long time if taken care of.
We have more information on how to take care of your antique brass bed frames in an article on our blog.
How to clean a lacquered brass bed?
Lacquer protects your bed frame from corroding over time, hence it is important to clean a lacquered brass bed with agents which won't strip away the lacquer. We recommend cleaning your brass bed with a dry towel regularly.
Avoid using any soaps but if there is a stubborn stain then a damp towel with lightly soaped water is the recommended solution. It is important to clean a brass bedstead regularly as even oils and sweat can start removing the lacquer which will then start corroding your bed.
How to polish antique brass bed frames?
For an unlacquered brass bed frame Brasso or any other metal polishing compound is the best way to remove tarnish and restore the shine to a brass bed. If there is a lot of tarnish then it can take a long time to get a sheen to your bed.
In these cases using a non scratch scour pad to take away the bulk of the tarnish and then polishing with a metal polishing compound is the best way to bring a brass bed back to life. This is the usual way of polishing brass furniture.
