Sleigh beds, or French beds as they are also known, are a classic and make a striking addition to any bedroom. They are characterised by curved or scrolled head and foot boards. Excavations in France in the early 19th century revealed the design can be traced as far back as the Roman Empire. The Emperor Napoleon liked the design so much he had these beds created for his palaces. This is how sleigh beds also became known as French beds.

The basic platform bed emerged since early times when the idea was born that the sleeping area should be raised from the ground. Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, is Europe’s most complete Neolithic village. It shows ancient beds were large slabs of stone likely to have been covered in bracken and animal skins. These are thought of as early platform beds. Early Egyptians used platform-style beds as this type of bed was found in King Tutankhamen’s tomb.
Platform beds are made up of a solid surface to support a mattress without a spring or mattress foundation. They can be made of wood or metal and are normally quite low to the ground, although they are sometimes raised on legs so drawers can be fitted in the base for extra storage space.
Stylish with simple, clean designs, platform beds look perfect in contemporary style homes and also work well with oriental-themed bedrooms. As they are low to the ground, they make the room appear larger, which is ideal for homes where space is limited.
