The Abingdon is one of our most popular antique brass bedsteads.

Offering 2” side posts, exceptional strong framework including our signature knuckle joint which is everlasting.

The bedstead is then softened with white crackle finish ceramics which are hand-spun into its brass fixing with an ornate lower brass petal.

The Abingdon is a fine example of a victorian metal bed frame and can be manufactured as a bedstead, bed surround, headboard, four-poster bed, or as a bedstead with no foot end. You can order your Abingdon in any of our favourite 13 colour options or in any colour not shown for an extra £100**. We cast our beds to exacting standards using time-honoured skills and craftsmanship.

Hand cast at our Cornwall foundry and made with all the traditional fixings you would expect from an authentic re-production.

Inside our mattresses


We complement our beds with a collection of mattresses that are all made by hand in Devon by our parent company, Naturalmat. The mattresses are a perfect fit for our beds, and cover all budgets.

All our mattresses offer great value for money, fantastic levels of comfort, combined with high levels of workmanship using the finest natural and organic materials.

“The quality of the bed and mattress are excellent. The materials, workmanship and finish are simply first class. I would 100% recommend this great British designed and built product. I don't give 5 stars easily. You will not be disappointed. They cost more than your average bed shop but this bed is way above any I have seen on the market. A work of art. I visited the Cornish Bed showroom and was extremely impressed by their level of service and knowledge of the bed frames and mattresses. - Trusted Customer via Feefo”
