Comment about our Sleigh Beds

Not only do I love selling our sleigh bed, I love how it looks in my home. The eye is just drawn to its graceful curves. It really is the focal point of my bedroom set.

What I like most is the quality of our American made bedroom furniture. I'll ask people to try lifting up the leg of the sleigh bed, or to stand on its wood side rail. It really shows how sturdy our sleigh bed is, especially when you compare it to other sleigh beds.

As I'm always visiting furniture stores, I get to see a lot of other sleigh beds. I'm always astounded that most manufacturers seem to think Americans would rather have a cheap bed than a quality bed. Rather than buy a cheap bed that breaks every few years, doesn't it make more sense to buy a quality American made sleigh bed that is warrantied for life? It's why we sell so many of our Classic Sleigh Beds.

Our sleigh bed is built American tough. Its superior construction ensures that your bed won't wobble. We don't skimp by not curving the center panels. Both the legs AND the center panels of our sleigh bed are gracefully curved. Our Classic Sleigh Bed really is a combination of strength & beauty.

I've had my Furniture Traditions' sleigh bed in my home for 13 years. It's just as beautiful and just as sturdy today, as the day I brought it home.

Classic Sleigh Beds

Classic furniture styles are deemed “classics” because they are in keeping with a traditional style that was popular during another era. Modern manufacturing practices may skew the design so that is in keeping with more contemporary craftsmanship, but the fundamentals of the design itself call upon the lines and materials inherent in the original conception. The classic sleigh bed, for instance, has had a resurgence in popularity over the past decade, but its origin rests in early 1800s French and American design — a part of design know as the Empire Period that was inspired from ancient Roman and Grecian empires. The French design was far smaller than the American version, designed to accommodate one person rather than two, but both countries saw great enthusiasm for the sleigh bed during this time period.

The sleigh bed, true to its name, is known by its curved headboard and footboard and its use of heavier woods — a design that resembles an old-fashioned sleigh. The more contemporary versions of the traditional sleigh bed, while still represented by the curved headboard, may not necessarily have a footboard; and the curvature may be displayed in varying degrees. But no matter what the differences in one design to the next, the sleigh bed has an elegant and regal connotation, making it a favorite in bedroom suites worldwide.

At Furniture Traditions, the sleigh bed is one of our most popular pieces as well. Our customers love the selection of alder and oak sleigh beds, whether they choose just the bed itself or a bedroom suite that includes a variety of pieces that complement the bed, from nightstands and armoires to media consoles and chests.

The decision between styles and accompaniments may be a difficult one but going with Furniture Traditions is always an easy choice because the quality is always there, no matter the style of bedroom furniture or living room furniture that is chosen.

Whether you’re looking for a coordinated bedroom set or individual matching pieces such as a bookcase headboard or sleigh bed, you will always find exceptional quality and service with Furniture Traditions.

We invite you to browse our traditional alder and oak sleigh bed designs as well as our other bedroom furniture designs such as bookcase headboards and enjoy these high quality pieces for a lifetime.
