The simplicity of the Billy Cast Iron Bed Frame makes it an ideal choice for a single bed or child's bed. Its simple design sits well in a contemporary or modern home where it adds character in a subtle way.

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

The Billy can also be manufactured as a bed surround, headboard, four-poster bed (with or without upholstered headboard) or as a bedstead with no foot end. You can order your Billy in any of our 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. 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 lifetimes and will become an antique in the future.

    I love my new bed!

    I love my new bed. I chose The Cornish Bed Company because I knew I was buying quality but it goes beyond that, the Billy bed is strong, elegant and so contemporary. I am so leased with it!

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.

“Exceptional service. The service they provide is excellent right from the start. They booked me a zoom call with a specialist in the showroom, I was shown everything in detail by a very patient and knowledgeable consultant, Felippe. The process was explained in detail and all my questions were answered. I called and emailed Felippe several times and every time he got back to me promptly. And finally for the installation, the guys were so obliging and polite. We have a small stairway but nothing was a problem. They were quick and efficient. Thank you! The beds are simply stunning, a work of art even. The workmanship that has gone in to them is quite a delight. We also purchased their own handmade organic mattresses, beautifully made and extremely comfortable. - Trusted Customer via Feefo”
