  Vintage spindle back beds are very fashionable at the moment and truly timeless. The oak spindle bed in the photo was made specially to fit the loft bedroom of a country house.

Dressed with old fashioned striped bedding this vintage style oak bed looks fab under the old oak beam. This bed is available in Small Double 4ft, Double 4 ft 6, Kingsize 5ft and also Superking 6ft.  Call Abowed Beds Shop on Matlock 01629 822392
