What is a sleigh bed?

You may be asking “What is a sleigh bed?” – Here is a comprehensive definition from

A sleigh bed is a style of bed with curved or scrolled foot and headboards, thus resembling a sled or sleigh. Often made of wood and quite heavy, the sleigh bed is a result of the French and American Empire period of the early 19th century. The Empire style drew its inspiration from the empires of ancient Rome and Greece. Today’s sleigh beds are made from a variety of materials including wood, iron, steel and aluminium, and often possess less exaggerated curves of the foot and headboards.

Matching your interior décor

Sleigh beds are renowned for their style and, although natural wood or metal are options, a popular choice is fabric upholstery. Using materials such as suede, velvet, and linen, a fabric finish over a sturdy frame makes that finishing touch when buying a sleigh bed.

Added storage options

It is also possible to buy sleigh beds with added storage. Choose from an ottoman style, where a lift mechanism reveals extra storage in a hidden compartment underneath the mattress. Divan bases are more popular and enable storage directly underneath the bed. Additionally, drawers are frequently added for storage space at one of the sides of the bed, or underneath.
