4 Modern Upholstered Bed Styles

The modern upholstered bed is available in a variety of styles that can transform your most important piece of bedroom furniture into a statement piece. Here are four upholstered designs to consider for your next bed purchase.

Upholstered Platform Bed

The platform is one of the oldest styles of bed. It consists of a raised base with rows of wooden slats on top of which a mattress is placed. Upholstered versions of this traditional design feature clean lines, sparse details and neutral colors, making them the ideal choice for contemporary bedrooms. They are available in a range of styles, from simple designs that have no headboard or footboard to low-profile beds with tall, dramatic headboards. Go with a tufted headboard if your bedroom is more traditionally styled, or choose a minimalistic bed frame to instantly give your room a more modern touch.

Upholstered Storage Bed

Upholstered storage beds add functionality to the room while helping maintain an uncluttered space. Choose from designs with four deep side drawers, or opt for a bed frame with a single footboard storage drawer. Use the additional storage space to store anything from extra linen to out-of-season clothing. Minimalist designs with muted elements will help bring a sense of order and cohesiveness to the space, while upholstered storage beds with tufted paneling will subtly dress up a dull room.

Upholstered Sleigh Bed

Nothing says luxury like an upholstered sleigh bed. Often referred to as a French bed, the sleigh bed features scrolled headboards and footboards resembling the form of a sled. Upholstered sleigh beds add an extra element of decadence to your sleeping space, especially when topped with a faux fur throw or a velvet accent pillow. Our selection of upholstered bed frames includes several Chesterfield styles inspired by the old-fashioned sleigh bed and featuring deep button tufts with decorative bronze nailheads.

Upholstered Headboard

Want to update the look of your room but don't want to change your bed? An upholstered headboard is an excellent alternative to purchasing an upholstered bed. Simply swap out your existing headboard to instantly transform the look of your bedroom and turn your bed into an interesting focal point. Upholstered headboards are available in a variety of styles, including curved designs, tufted designs and leather-upholstered styles. Looking to add a touch of glamour your bedroom? Consider an elegant wingback design.
