About Us

About the Victorian Brass Bedstead Company

 

We believe purchasing a bed to be a very personal experience, we welcome a visit from you, although catalogues and the powerful graphics on a website give fairly accurate descriptions “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

Please contact us to make an appointment. We can supply detailed photographs of the beds on display, but your involvement is very important. We have over 40 years of experience and have sold hundreds of beds to suit all tastes and styles. The vast majority of our beds are antique but we do offer some bespoke lines which can be seen in our showroom. We also offer a restoration service. We have a foundry and workshop and can restore damaged beds to their original condition.

Based in the heart of West Sussex, The Victorian Brass Bedstead Company restore bedsteads to their original glory. Most of these date from 1870 to 1925 and are sourced from all over the world, although originally manufactured in the Midlands.  Each one is an original, unique piece.

The Victorian Brass Bedstead Company mainly deals in original bedsteads and offers a comprehensive restoration service. Whether you have found a bedstead from our vast stock or have an existing bedstead that requires refurbishment we can assist. 

What Our Customers Say

  • My son fitted the base onto my beautifully restored bed this morning. It’s now sturdy,  pristine, shiny and polished and so comfortable.  I can’t Thank you enough for such a fantastic job. So glad I opted to restore rather than buy a new one.  I would recommend your service to anyone thinking of restoring their old brass bed as they wouldn’t be disappointed

  •  "Many thanks, Dan. I’m thrilled with the bed and all your work in restoring it so beautifully. The colour is perfect and I don’t ever remember the brass being so shiny! Appreciate the way you always advised me without pushing and replied to emails so speedily. It felt like I was talking to you face to face. I was nervous sending you a bed of such sentimental value, but I needn’t have worried. I now know it couldn’t have been better cared for if it had been your own. Phil, the courier was reliable too. He must have left home at about 5am to get to us so early! Definitely recommend everything about Victorian Brass Beds."

  • Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for our beautiful bed. It arrived exactly as arranged this morning, and was up in a jiffy. I look forward to a good night's sleep later. Thanks again. Claire Green
  • In the end it was the testimonials that sold me on asking Dan to restore my brass bed and so here’s another one to add to them. I did indeed buy my bed years ago from a junk shop for £100 and stuck it it in the shed convinced I would have it restored some day. I did indeed, after re-inspecting it two months ago, decide to forget about restoration, take it to the recycling centre and forget about it. I did indeed stop and reconsider my decision when the dude at the centre said “Hey that could be a nice bed”. The rest is history. It looks superb. Thanks Dan. (And thanks for taking the trouble to chase me a mile up the road in the summer heat when I forgot to load the irons into the van!)
