Plus, for a limited time, you can save £250 when you spend £1,000 – simply use code 'period living' at the checkout. Offer ends 31 May 2021 and is available in the UK only.
Charlotte iron bed
Evocative of bedtime stories and period dramas, Charlotte would work as well in a country cottage as in an elegant townhouse.
It's a simple and timeless design that's perfect if you're looking to furnish a large bedroom, or if you are looking for a bed brimming with heritage appeal.
Arthur nickel bed
Perfectly poised and polished, Arthur is a luxurious brass and nickel bed that celebrates Victorian design with decorated bedposts and hand-spun finials.
It would bring a timeless touch to homes of almost every era, and its nickel finish creates a lovely sense of light in a bedroom.
Henry iron bed
Brimming with old-school charm, Henry is a simple, nostalgic design that can be dressed up or down to suit a range of room styles.
Based on the retro dormitory style, the bed features chunky, thick slats, while its extra height adds a touch of grandeur.
Victoria brass bed
Victoria features an elegant sweeping curve, grand bed posts and hand-spun finials.
Its graceful curves and brass highlights make it worthy of bearing the monarch’s name – it’s a fairytale bed for creating a truly sumptuous sanctuary.
Albert brass bed
A simple heritage design with a dash of indulgence, Albert combines a classic iron bed frame with brass finials and top bar.
It's an understated yet sophisticated design, but its brass finials add a touch of regal splendor.
George brass bed
George is a slightly more masculine design that exudes luxury, and is the perfect choice if you’re looking to really spoil yourself.
The bed's detailing is opulent yet elegant, and it would look stunning in a bolder room scheme.

As editor of Period Living, Britain's best-selling period homes magazine, I love the charm of older properties. I live in a rural village just outside the Cotswolds, so am lucky to be surrounded by beautiful homes and countryside, where I enjoy exploring. I am passionate about characterful interiors and heritage-inspired designs, but I am equally fascinated by a house's architectural elements – if I spot an elegant original sash window or intricate stained-glass front door, it fills my heart with joy. It's so important to me that original features are maintained and preserved for future generations to enjoy. My other passion is my garden, and I am slowly building up my planting knowledge, and becoming more confident at experimenting with growing my own. As well as editing Period Living, I am also co-editing the Country Channel of Homes & Gardens. In my previous roles, I have worked on Real Homes and Homebuilding & Renovating, wiriting about modern design and architecture, so my experience is broad – but my heart belongs to period homes.
