Get into the Christmas spirit with sleigh beds!

Christmas is so close that we can practically smell the turkey roasting in the oven, so we’re going to delve into the world of sleigh beds to make sure you’re looking forward to the big day and feeling festive.

These stylish beds have been around since the early 19th century and feature curved head and foot ends. The beds were originally designed to fit only one person, but they grew to accommodate another sleeper when the design became popular in America, giving rise to the sleigh beds we all know and love today.

Sleigh beds come in many forms nowadays, from wooden and leather varieties to sizes double and super king. Here are some of our favourites at Mattressman:

Chantilly White by Bentley Designs – we think this bed frame definitely has that Christmas wow factor.

This statement piece comes in white and is crafted from the finest American poplar. The white finish makes it easy to integrate into existing bedroom settings, and the base of the frame comprises sprung slats.


Orbit Silver by Limelight – perfect for those who love a little bit of luxury

This fabric sleigh bed comes in silver and features button detailing on the head and footboard for that luxurious look and feel. If the silver fabric doesn’t appeal, the Orbit is also available in black or mink.

We hope that reading about these sleigh beds has made you feel more festive and that it will inspire dreams of sleigh rides in the snow. Let us know what you think about our scroll-top bed frames in the comment section below and have a merry Christmas!

Sleep well!
