The term sleigh bed refers to a classic and elegant bed design with curved head and footboards that mimic the design of an old world sleigh. Sleigh bed designs were originally crafted during the early years of the 19th century in France. The beds were designed as a comfortable child’s bed or a day bed for adults. Classic sleigh bed designs have a high headboard and a slightly lower footboard which adds a cozy feel.
Sleigh bed frames can curve either inward or outward but these days outward curves are the most popular. They are also safer and more comfortable. Outward curved beds not only offer more space to the sleeper, but also reduce the chance of bumping your head against the bed frame.
