English Beds and Classic Style Bedrooms

A classic, English style bedroom is all about simple tasteful styles and traditional proportions.

The Cochin bed is our ultimate classic bed with graceful tapered legs, a tall headboard and slender, refined side panels. This bed shows of the variations in grain of walnut and oak beautifully. Pair it with Farrow&Ball classic paint colours, roman blinds or floor length curtains for a romantic take on this look.

The Tibet bed and the Ocean bed are modern classics, with comfortable traditional proportions and chunky sections of solid timber. These beds work well with our new tall Cube bedside tables. The Sahara Bed is an elegant, slimmer version of the Tibet – perfect for a simple take on classic style.
The Zanskar bed has a ‘mid century modern’ feel about it. The headboard panel is angled for comfort, the tall sloping headboard creating the perfect reclining position for curling up with a good book! The legs are also tapered for a soft, slightly retro feel. Orla Kiely printed wall paper, muted muddy tones of olive green and duck egg blue will reinforce this aspect of the design.

Our Orchid & Oasis four-poster beds also suit this look, sitting beautifully in a period home or a more modern space they are both unfussy, elegant designs. Looking for classic bedding to complement this look? Try our hemstitch linen blend bedding, classic embroidered bedspreads or Bronte wool throws.

If you are looking for a cosy take on this style take a look at our Shetland Bed with an upholstered headboard and the Arran bed. The Shetland bed can look very classic or ultramodern depending on the fabric chosen for the generous headboard panel. The Arran has classic button detailing to the upholstered headboard with a simple, beautifully proportioned solid wood base.
