The name Agnes pays homage to the village of St Agnes on the unspoilt Cornish coast. Considered to be the very essence of rural Cornwall, the town retains its old charm and enchanting character, themes that have been carried over to the design of the Agnes bed.
The cushion can be upholstered in a bespoke fabric of choice, such as Caramel boucle by Bute fabrics as pictured above, or any of the Linara house fabric options for a transformational but practical design element.
True to its traditional Victorian form, the Agnes bed highlights the enduring appeal of authentic craftsmanship and timeless design which is made to last for generations.
With its authentic castings and recognisable curved top rails, the detailed yet minimalist style will suit traditional period homes and more contemporary settings.
During the making process, the raw cast iron bed frame is coloured using a process known as powdercoating, which ensures a robust finish so the colours stand the test of time without chipping or cracking.
The Agnes - your way
The Agnes can be made as a bedstead, bed surround, headboard, or as a bedstead with no foot end, or in a four-poster option.
Hand cast in Cornwall
