A Bit of Brass Beds History

After refurbishing and restoring old brass beds for several years,  in 1975, we began making new brass beds. Our guiding principle  was to incorporate the time-tested workmanship and construction  of the old beds with today's materials and equipment, in order to  provide a durable bed at a fair price, one that we could guarantee  to last. Iron beds were introduced in 1984 and over the past two  decades have become the dominant product that we offer. Our  philosophy, as with the brass beds, remained dedicated to the  principle of quality and value and our designs continued to be faithful replicas of  some of the finest the past had to offer.  After years of offering white and off white finishes, in  the late 80's, early 90's, we introduced darker finishes on  the iron beds, with artistically painted accents and  patinas, leading the industry in a new direction. In the  mid 90's, we introduced a  transitional look, combining a  touch of tradition with a clean contemporary flair.  In  2000 we made our seventh move in thirty-seven years,  into a new facility, so that we may continue to expand  our product offerings, control cost, and still make a  quality hand-crafted product.  
History Brass tubing inventory. Powder coating in action. Company building front.
In constructing our Iron and Brass beds we use primarily cold  roll steel, heavy gauge tubing, in both brass and steel, and solid  bar stock. Cold roll steel has higher tensile strength and  therefore will not dent or bend as easy as hot roll steel. Coupled  with our interlocking rail system that is actually part of the bed,  the result is a sturdy, durable product that should give you  many years of good service. All of our beds and accessories are  powder coated in an environmentally friendly process, resulting  in a chip and scratch resistant coating.   
Cold rolled steel rod inventory.
Design and finish along with sound construction makes Brass Beds of Virginia  unique. The majority of our designs are classically enduring and with the right  finish, have the versatility to work with any array of décors.  Style, not trend or  fashion, rules our design philosophy, therefore many of our best-selling beds have  been in the line for 10-15 years. We will continue to introduce new offerings that fit  with this criterion. 
Our Iron & Brass beds and accessories are made to order and have a considerable  amount of hand workmanship. Each sold order is tracked  through our shop with both the store and customers name  on the job ticket, so each is actually made for you.  All of our  beds and accessories are crafted from start to finish right  here in Richmond, Virginia.    Pat Hudgins
