The Somerset natural bedstead is one of our most popular classic beds. Offering 2” side posts for strength and longevity, finished off with solid brass top caps and brass bed knobs*. This bedstead suggests elegance at its finest with sweeping curved brass top rails for that extra layer of class.

*If you prefer to have the Nickel finish on your Somerset bed, please get in touch with us on 01726 825182 to place your bespoke finish order (an additional charge of £100 applies).

There are no bolts or welds on the Somerset bed design.

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

The Somerset can be manufactured as a bedstead, bed surround, headboard, four-poster bed, or as a bedstead with no foot end. You can order your Somerset 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.

**We offer a wide range of bespoke colours and can match any Pantone #ref provided if you have a specific colour in mind or would like to match the bed to other items of decor in your bedroom. Please get in touch with us on 01726 825182 to place your bespoke colour order. 

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.

    Just wonderful

    We have been wanting this bed for months and we are not disappointed at all; it meets with all our expectations either from an aesthetic point or for the comfort it offers. The price is more than reasonable for such a bed. We hope to be able to buy another one soon.

“Amazing quality - I just love my bed. It looks great and is everything I dreamed of having. Amazing Quality, Amazing Customer Experience. The customer service journey was excellent - right from when I made my first initial enquiry, the advice from Gary was spot on and when he said he would call me back he did. He helped with my ideas and gave me confidence that I was making the right choice, keeping me updated all along the way right through to the delivery. The delivery of the bed embedded all the same values, courteous and professional. - Trusted Customer via Feefo”
