Superior Craftsmanship, Using Tried and True Methods
Brass Beds of Virginia believes in making the most durable and beautiful beds and furniture possible. Our skilled artisans combine the highest quality materials available, traditional craftsmanship, and the most durable modern finishes to craft heirlooms of lasting beauty. Our craftsmen bend scroll work by hand, measure and hand cut tubing to size, and precision weld steel parts. Every intersection in a cast bed’s design is formed from vintage style molds, cleaned, and filed smooth. And all steel beds are then sandblasted for the perfect finish before the powdercoating is applied. Then expert artists add layered finishes before a final sealer is applied. Each bed is the culmination of superb craftsmen artistry.
The best material makes the best furniture
Our Exclusive Interlocking Frame
No squeaks, creaks or wobbles!!! From the beginning we have marveled at the ingenuity and simplicity of how iron beds were made a hundred years ago…especially how the head and foot were joined. No nuts & bolts…just a friction fit dove-tail joint that assembles and disassembles with the tap of a hammer. Our exclusive cast dovetail joint frame system is not only sturdy but is also easy to assemble and disassemble. It comes standard on all of our beds except Headboard Only configurations.

Signature Touches and Finishes
Our Brass Beds have a natural unlacquered brass finish, so they develop a beautiful patina over time. Some customers just let the brass age and appreciate the character of the acquired patina, while others polish as needed. Available in Satin Brass, Polished Brass, Polished Aluminum, and Natural Brass. Lacquering is also available and we use a special long lasting commercial process to lacquer our brass beds.
Our iron and steel beds have many customization options, including headboard and footboard height, frame height, configuration, design alterations, and more.
Metal Color Options
Our premium, hand-applied finishes are available in a two tone look or an all-over patina. We offer over 50 choices! Each bed starts with a base powder coat, then the particular premium finish is hand applied by one of our artisans, from start to finish, and once completed, the bed is signed by the artist who finished it and clear coated for durability. The extra hours and attention to detail required for these finishes results in a more sophisticated look as well as a higher cost. Since the premium finishes are applied by hand, each one is unique.
