Room Therapy: More Affordable Bedframe

Welcome to this week's Room Therapy post, where users submit questions and you, the readers, help answer them. The questions can be about anything, from a decorating conundrum in your home to a coveted piece of furniture you can't find anywhere.


Kdupps wrote in saying, "I'm incredibly in love with this iron and brass bed from Anthropologie, and I was wondering whether there were similar beds that were more reasonably priced. Either way, the bed is definitely craveworthy!"

The bed, which is classically vintage in design, has a trompe l'oeil painted brass and a white-wash patina—and it sells for$1,360.00-$1,460.00.

What do you readers think? Know of any similar bedframes? Please let us know by commenting or create Casa Cravings for any products or web sites that you think would help. Just be sure to tag your Casa Cravings with the phrase "Affordable Anthropologie." (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.) Thanks! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.


To see my suggestion for Kdupps, just

While the J.C. Penney Meredith steel bedframe ($229, on sale) definitely isn't a dead ringer for the Anthropologie bed, it's still quite adorable, and I love that you could hang bright printed curtains from the canopy rails.

ok, I bookmarked one earlier but when I went searching for iron/metal frames a while ago, a seasoned furniture salesperson told me about Wesley Allen beds. They are beautiful, high quality, and reasonably priced. I haven't picked out the one I want because I can't narrow it down. Check out the incredible selection at http://www.fineironbeds.com/ They have a ton of finishes including two-toned as well. Prices are not bad and you know you are getting something you'll have for a long time. It has been such a dilemma to choose one I want- they are all pretty!

My parents were real antique collectors so everyone had nice metal framed beds like this. If you go to salvage places or look around at auctions you can usually find one for a few hundred dollars. If it is in really bad condition you could invest in getting the old paint sandblasted off and get it re-coated. They did that with some of ours and they are durable and beautiful! I love them!

After reading the JC Penny suggestion, I found a lot of cute metal bed frames on the Web site. I plan to hit the antique shops, though, and I have been obsessively checking Craigslist. I keep waiting for the perfect price. Here's hoping ...

It's so ironic that you would post this. I was just looking yesterday at bed frames from Anthropologie. I am looking for a black iron headboard and found one on there that I fell in love with. Of course, for us single, young professionals, I did not fall in love with the price. I look forward to finding what member on this site have to say and crave. Thanks!!

You could get white paint and paint part of the frame to make it more like the Anthropologie frame.

Beds like this are usually fairly easy to find at flea markets, antique stores, eBay, CraigsList, etc. For example, here's a fill-size one for $295.
