The nickel Beckett is the ultimate luxurious statement bed, born out of the brass bed, and plated with nickel for a cooler, more industrial look. Matching exquisite finials adorn the head and the footend of the nickel Beckett bed, radiating stand-out sophistication and yet is charmingly traditional. Nickel Beckett bed will become your family heirloom and will stand the test of time.

The Beckett offers 2" Nickel posts, stunning pineapple-shaped tops, a 1" internal frame, and solid cast tee pieces to create a stunning bed with a grand presence.

Finished in polished Nickel with an Antique Brass option available.

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

The Beckett can be manufactured as a bedstead, bed surround, headboard, or as a bedstead with no foot end, or a four-poster option - we cast our beds to exacting standards using time-honoured skills and craftsmanship. Every bed is made individually to order, numbered, and signed off by one of our craftsmen.

With The Cornish Bed Company, you can be confident that your bedstead will last a lifetime and will become an antique in the future.

    Beckett Emperor Nickel Bed

    We ordered a bed and mattress (Beckett & splendid) from The Cornish bed company and couldn't be happier! We visited the NaturalMat London showroom on numerous occasions and also arranged a visit to the Cornish foundry to see how the beds are made. The staff made sure the foundry was open and we even got a tour & got to see the guys casting and finishing the beds. It's a true dying art and we are proud to support a quality British product. Ordering was simple and the staff in the Chiswick showroom offered an even better discount than we initially had arranged. Even the delivery guys were good. They handled a difficult 3 story stairwell with speed and professionalism. We've had the bed for about a month and love it. I'd recommend without hesitation. Thanks Cornish Bed Company and Natural Mat!!

Why Polished Nickel?

Why Polished Nickel?

Polished nickel is the most luxurious metal finish we offer. Born out of solid brass tubes and finials, the beds are then nickel platted for the cooling, regal look.

Natural Mattresses

Natural Mattresses

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

Our mattresses are made by hand in a solar-powered Devon workshop with natural & organic fibres. Better for you, and the planet.

“I love my new bed - it is beautiful and the detailing a work of art. The mattress is, again, very comfortable. Thank you Cornish Beds! Beautiful crafted beds. This is my second bed from this company. My first was over 10 years ago in a cream colour for a period property. Both the bed and the Naturalmat mattress were outstanding. Unfortunately the colour didn't work in our new house and I really loved the nickel beds so I ordered a new one and a new mattress for the new house. Cornish Beds were so helpful as I wanted a slightly lower foot end on this bed so I placed a bespoke order. Despite this and the second lockdown, the bed was delivered on time. - Michelle via Feefo”
