Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 16 of the best iron beds in every top interior design style and trend - from vintage inspired to canopy beds, sleigh beds, modern, daybeds and more!

 

 

Perhaps I’ve watched the movie “The Holiday” one too many times over the month of December (or throughout the years!), but I find myself dreaming of redecorating my home, especially my bedroom like Iris’ gorgeous Cotswold cottage. While researching the popular interior design trends for 2022, I quickly became excited to learn that vintage and vintage-inspired furniture is making a comeback. Many years ago I bought a vintage iron twin-size bed that resembles hers at a flea market that I used for quite some time. While I adore my new upholstered bed with mirrored trim, I can’t bear to let go of my flea market find even though it’s a twin. I love that iron beds are gaining popularity and are an absolute must for 2022!

With maximalism trending and grandmillennial style still as popular as ever, you can’t go wrong with adorning a gorgeous bed with a plush quilt in the color of your choice (or a vintage inspired floral print for the grandmillennial fan)! It will look great with countless pillows as well! A beautiful iron bed is not only perfect for the vintage inspired home, but is ideal for the traditional, modern farmhouse or your beach cottage!

Today, I’m excited to share 16 of the best iron beds in a variety of styles and price ranges. With January bedding sales soon to kick off, now is a great time to splurge on the bed of your dreams so you can redecorate your bedroom!
