The Best Beds, Inspired by Designers
It’s all about texture.
The Best Materials For A Designer Bed
As with every investment piece, focus on natural materials. The best materials for a designer bed are going to have natural fibers, creating beautiful texture. As I carefully study the inspiration photos shared herein this post, texture remains a common theme amongst each of them.
At The Austin Tudor, we had four bedrooms to furnish. As our future family home, i wanted to invest wisely in the best beds that would grow with us both stylistically and functionally. Below is a list of the best materials to look for when investing in designer inspired beds:
- Linen – I’m seeing more and more solid color linen beds, with both the head board and platform upholstered entirely.
- Rattan or Rush – the natural fibers of rattan or rush beds is a common theme in designers work like Heidi Caillier and Jake Arnold. This is a truly timeless material and will age gracefully.
- Iron – Definitely the most affordable option of quality bed materials, I particularly love iron beds in guest rooms. Historically, I’ve found iron beds to be a bit squeaky, but the ones sourced below have great reviews and seem a bit sturdier.

Clean Lines and Subtle Curves
An additional key element to look for when sourcing a designer inspired bed is the shape. Clean lines and subtle curves are always the way to go. From a more traditional arch to a sleek scallop, the headboard shape is key. While the profile of the bed frame maters just as much as the material, the curves can be represented in different ways. Channeled or fluting details in the headboard can make a more rectangular shaped bed feel more high-end.
