Adorn Your Bedroom With The Beautiful Sleigh Beds
Sleigh beds have become increasingly popular over the last decade but their root go back for centuries. Sleigh beds refer to bed frames that have a headboard and footboard characterized by an outward curl at the top of each end. Sleigh beds somewhat resemble a sleigh, hence their name. Though sleigh beds can be made in different metals, they are typically made of carved wood. The more expensive variants of sleigh beds may feature hand carved curls. The design for the sleigh bed is French. Generally such a bed would have been made for a single person and might have been used as a day bed or as a child’s bed. The footboard is almost always shorter than the headboard.
Many of these sleigh beds come as part of a larger set with matching dressers, armoires and end tables. You can choose to buy just the bed or the entire matched set. Again, the matching pieces tend to be larger in order to be on a matching scale with the bed itself. They also make a kids sleigh bed that is smaller in proportion. They used to be only in white to reflect the innocence of children, but now they come in more varieties of color and style.
