Sleigh Beds FAQ

What Are Sleigh Beds Made From?

You can craft sleigh beds from any solid material. But at Revival Beds, our sleigh bed frames are made from either solid oak or Oregon, chosen for their durability and strength.

Our solid oak sleigh beds use 150-200-year-old European oak, a hardwood chosen for its character and durability. Meanwhile, our Oregon beds combine Quebec Yellow and Scandinavian Redwood (two species of solid pine) to provide the optimum combination of strength and beautiful design.

Some of our Sleigh Beds, like the Amalfi Sleigh Bed, also feature authentic Italian leather, available in 15 bespoke shades. 

If you’re looking for a wooden sleigh bed with storage, Revival Beds has you covered. Most of our wooden sleigh beds come with optional under-bed storage drawers providing up to 10 cubic feet of storage space. 

Our wooden sleigh beds with storage have two drawers around the size of a large suitcase. They are hand-built in solid wood using dovetailed joints to provide extra strength.

Sleigh beds are popular thanks to their sophisticated and elegant design, created by the curved headboard and footboard. They’re typically made with solid wood, enhancing strength, stability, and durability.

A sleigh bed is a bed type that has a curved headboard and footboard that roll outward at the top. They were popularised in the first half of the 19th century. 

Yes, sleigh beds have remained popular since the early 19th century. They combine simplicity and luxury and are commonplace in many “best designer beds” articles.

In most cases, the comfort of your sleigh bed will depend on mattress performance. So, ensure you invest in a quality mattress that is the right size for your bed. Our Henry Smeaton mattresses are available with up to 11,000 pocket springs and fit all our wooden beds.

Our craftsmen can build bespoke-sized sleigh bed frames for those looking for something extra long or wide. For example, if you require extra legroom, then all of our sleigh bed designs can be made longer than the standard 6′ 3″ or 6′ 6″ lengths.

Sleigh beds originated in France in the early 19th century after being popularised by Napoleon. However, their heritage dates back to Ancient Rome and Greece, with inspiration for the modern Sleigh bed coming from this era’s opulent aesthetic.

Sleigh beds have a heritage which dates back to the Roman era – heavily influenced by Napoleon, who wanted all his beds made this way. Napoleon’s preference for sleigh bed frames significantly increased the popularity of the design in France, and so, in the early 1800’s, the sleigh bed was born.
