What makes a bed beautiful? Is it something tangible: the design, or the quality of the craftsmanship? Or is it intangible: the story behind the piece, how you feel when you see it?

At French Bedroom, our exclusive French style beds designed by our in-house team are made with our customers in mind. In fact, it was this very idea that started the company: our founder Georgia dreamt of a bed to accompany a woman in all stages of her life, and beyond. An eternal companion, passed down to children and grandchildren.

A bed designed for women, by women.

Read on to discover our top three most beautiful French beds, each designed with women in mind, by the women of French Bedroom.

"I’d worked in the interiors industry for a while. I found myself sketching designs of how I’d want my dream French bed to look and feel. The result was something very different to what I saw currently available on the market. I believe a large part of that was due to the ideas coming from a feminine perspective."
Georgia Metcalfe, French Bedroom Founder & Creative Director

Settle Into Silence

Silence is increasingly difficult to find in modern life: between work, family and social commitments we can struggle to find moments of calm and peace in our busy days.

The design for our Settle Into Silence Upholstered Bed was inspired by the tranquil sights and sounds of nature; meadows of late summer flowers, blackberry-stained hands, evening sunbeams through the trees, and the whispering of falling autumn leaves.

Women are often the ones who sacrifice their ‘me’ time to attend to the needs of others. We wanted the women who own this bed to embrace the sensation of being immersed in nature, in their quiet place; and to settle into a silent night's sleep.

"I always gravitate to our bedroom when I need some peace. Creating spaces for silence, calm and relaxation are really important to me I’ve got my eye on their ‘Settle Into Silence’ linen upholstered bed. It beautifully displays natural hues of vintage florals and gives romantic ambience ….a hug while you sleep in an autumn meadow springs to mind."

A Love Story

From the carefree young child, running around fields of daisies in her summer dress, to the businesswoman and mother - our Love Story Pink Upholstered Bed was designed with all the stages of a woman’s life in mind.

This bed is delicate, and very feminine. We used pink silk upholstery to give it romantic glamour, as silk is a luxurious material. However, we combined luxury with a touch of practicality and made it a poly-silk blend. This silk offers the authentic look and feel of natural silk dupion, but with the practical advantage of being gently washable and more durable.

The idea came from both the working mothers on our team with households of sticky-fingered children, and the young professionals who enjoy a glass of wine in bed - invaluable female input!

"I love the look and feel of the natural oak frame on this bed; and the silk upholstery is so luxurious - it's definitely on my wish list for when I redecorate in the spring!"
Sarah, French Bedroom

The Royal Treatment

For a bed that will make you feel like royalty, look no further than our Palais Royal Avenue Linen Upholstered Bed. This upholstered French bed encapsulates timeless elegance; a classic bed designed to be an heirloom for future generations.

Imagine floor to ceiling drapes gently being pulled back, throwing sunlight across the deep-buttoned linen upholstery - it's the start of a beautiful day in Paris.

Everything about this bed is luxurious. Hand carved, baroque-style acanthus leves and stylised florals adorn the mahogany framework, finished in a soft ivory antique crackle patina with gold highlights. Even the button upholstery undulates like a child’s dimples!

Designed for women who know they deserve no less than royal treatment.

"I bought the Palais Avenue upholstered bed in super king size. What a magnificent bed!! It's really stunning and of great quality. I feel like a queen every night I go to bed!"

Georgia remembers the early days of French Bedroom and the excitement of the first blushes of success:

“We started French Bedroom with 3 beds, 4 chandeliers and a handful of rugs and bed linen.  Systems were basic, stock was low but ideas were flowing and hearts were aflutter. When the phone rang for the first time and we had our first sale we did a little jig!”

Now we offer a stunning and varied range of French style beds, upholstered beds, rattan beds, and gloriously grand emperor beds.  Find your dream bed designed with you in mind online, or contact our friendly customer experience team at [email protected] for advice and styling tips.
