We make and supply a wide range of traditional and contemporary handmade beds: low beds, sleigh beds, pencil post beds, half tester beds and four poster beds.
All beds are made to order, to suit your exact needs. Beds are priced to standard UK mattress sizes, but we can make bed frames to continental and US mattress sizes. Bespoke commissions are welcomed-bring an idea, or sketch, and we can develop your perfect bed!
Stephen started by developing the Open
Four Poster Bed, which is basically a bed consisting of
four posts, a head board, foot board, and cornice (or tester).
Once he had sorted out the design and fittings, for strength
and easy assembly, he then went on to the fully panelled
version, which is now called the Lyons Hall Four Poster
Many people, including guest house and hotel owners, prefer a simpler four poster bed, that consists of a headboard, four posts and a cornice. This we call the Juniper Open Canopy Bed. The headboard can be wooden or upholstered. Since the beginning, the team has developed numerous standard and one-off bed designs for both private customers and designers/hoteliers.
You have a choice of bed
posts, including turned, fluted and twisted posts. Your bed is handmade to suit your specifications, including mattress size, timber
and finish. We also offer a carving service for specialist requests, such as
initials, insignias, family crests.
We endeavour to use sustainable locally
grown hardwoods wherever possible. This is carefully selected,
planked, then air and kiln dried on the premises. Stephen maintains
quality control throughout the whole process, from the growing
tree, to your finished four poster bed.
We can also offer drapery for you four poster bed, including bedspreads, as well as other upholstery for the bedroom such as window curtains. These are priced separately.
We also supply
a wide range of high quality, handmade bed bases and mattresses.

Bed Company website has more information on the choices available.
We are happy to ship beds outside of the UK. Four posters are easily assembled, needing
no specialist skills, just the bed components, an instruction
booklet, a block of wood and hammer, a little common sense
and a bedroom in which to put it.
