Metal beds vocabulary and information
What are Bed Rails?
By using the term “bed rails”, we refer to the side rails of your bed. Most of our bed rails are made of metal but we also provide some models with wood. The bed rails need a headboard and footboard to support your mattress and box spring.
What is a iron bed frame ?
By using the term bed frame, we refer to the “base” that suppots the mattress. A bed frame usually needs a headboard or footboard. Our beds provide all the pre-mentioned elements. A bed frame or bedstead is the part of a bed used to position the mattress and base (foundation). It may include means of supporting a canopy above. Bed frames are typically made of wood or metal. A bed frame includes head, foot, and side rails.
It may also include slats to support the mattress, in which case a separate base is not necessary, as in a platform bed. Most double (full) sized beds, along with all queen and king size beds, require some type of center support rail, typically also with extra feet extending down to the floor. The term “bed frame” was first used in 1805-1815.
How was the iron bed frame invented?
Iron beds were produced in the 17th century Italy to deal with infestation by bed bugs and moths. An iron cradle has been dated to 1620-1640. From the beginnig of their production in the 1850s until World War I, iron beds were handmade.
The production included hand pouring and polishing intricately detailed casting and finishing made on hand. In the many small foundries of the time where a handful of employees worked.
It could take days to produce a single bed. After the end of World War I, the mass-production processes used for wartime affected the iron industry as well. The handmade quality gave way to cost-effective mass production.
How industrial style began
While little is known about the origin of industrial style interiors, it’s widely assumed that the style developed during the early 20th century. At the end of the 2nd industrial revolution, the trend leading to globalization become more apparent. Many key factories moved their operations to other countries which resulted to industrial buildings beeing abandonned. On the other hand, it left behind an endless resource of high-quality materials to use.
And as cities have become increasingly populated once again since the early 90’s, resulting in a shortage of residential buildings, it become a logical solution to transform industrial areas into residential neighborhoods through renovation.
Instead of concealing the untouched beauty of industrial buildings, inteligent architects and homeowners were the first in converting industrial style plans in an ongoing trend by keeping bare walls, architectural details, and the mechanisms of the original buildings.
