French Upholstered Beds

French style furniture has long been popular thanks to its classic look and high quality construction. The pre-Revolution court of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette was famous for its magnificence and opulence, and furniture of the period was defined by its exquisite craftsmanship and intricate detailing. It is no wonder, then, that in the centuries that have followed makers of fine furniture have sought to copy the fluid lines and elegant motifs that were so characteristic of this bygone era. Even today, manufacturers are attempting to incorporate the classic styling of this sophisticated age into contemporary pieces. Explore Vinterior’s stunning range of the real thing. Browse our antique and vintage French upholstered beds today and create your own beautiful boudoir.

What defines a French upholstered bed?

French upholstered beds are easily identifiable thanks to their sophisticated detailing and exquisitely carved frames. The characteristic high headboard and lower foot may have the traditional curved shape of a classic Louis XVI piece or may have a more modern appearance, however quality and elegance remain distinguishing features of these beds.

While a traditional frame may often be dark wood, many are gilded or painted to reflect different tastes, especially those pieces which are early 20th century vintage. The upholstery may be velvet, silk, damask or linen, and the colours will inevitably vary, but the overall effect will be one of luxurious opulence. Why not create a cohesive interior aesthetic and explore our range of French antique sofas too?

Why choose French upholstered beds?

There are few pieces of bedroom furniture that exude quality and luxury in the same way as a French upholstered bed. Whether a true antique or a vintage 20th century replica, its style and elegance is hard to beat. From the sophisticated scroll detailing of the carved wooden frame to the luxurious appearance of the fabric coverings, French upholstered beds are truly chic and look beautiful with a pair of French bedside tables to complete your continental aesthetic.

Purchasing a vintage or antique bed for your home is an investment, and you can be confident that you will be adding character and unique style to your room. Many modern furniture manufacturers are seeking to recreate the traditional styling of French upholstered beds in today’s designs, however an original piece will have an authentic charm that cannot be beaten or copied.

When you choose an antique or vintage bed, you can rest assured that you are buying a piece that has already proven its ability to stand the test of time. Furniture in the past was built to last from quality materials and to the highest standards by dedicated craftsmen. A modern replica cannot match such a high level of individual workmanship.

Of course, the main benefit of choosing an antique or vintage French upholstered bed is the heritage and history that it brings with it into your home. Embracing its classic style will create a focal point in your bedroom that will turn it into a boudoir magnificent enough for Marie Antoinette herself.
