8 Best Trending Metal Beds 2024

A metal bed frame is the perfect focal point for traditional, industrial, and minimalist bedrooms. Slim, chunky, and ornamental styles are available in multiple colours (black and brass are the most popular).

2024’s most popular metal bed frames are contemporary, with relatively low mattress heights and attractive tubular headboards and footboards. Nickel effect beds are in, while white metal bed frames have fallen out of favour.

Here are the most popular metal beds in 2024 so far:

1. Flintshire Calcain

The Calcain has distressed metal in an antique bronze finish, a thick tubular frame, weld-effect knuckles, and wide ball feet to give your bedroom a welcome touch of industrial flair.

This is a fantastic bed frame against a bright red or yellow feature wall, especially if you pair it with grey bedding and a homely teddy throw. It is also available in silver.

2. Time Living Metro

The Metro’s robust, square build provides an airiness ideal for small bedrooms that need a strong focal point.

It has a self-supporting metal bed frame, meaning it does away with a central support leg in the middle (so no more annoying adjustment in the future).

3. Time Living Inova

The Inova is very different from the Metro in a good way. It’s an elegant metal bed frame perfect for feminine spaces, with gorgeous curvy rails and spindles that delight. Squint and it almost looks like Cinderella’s carriage.

You won’t find another traditional bed frame as unique as the Inova, which has an ivory metal frame and fantastic build quality. It’s a real treat.

4. Birlea Mercia

The Mercia is a four-poster bed with a difference. It eliminates fancy details for a simple, square frame perfect for masculine spaces. You can dress it up with netting or leave it as is to highlight tall ceilings and natural light.

This metal frame is offered in double or king-size. King–size beds are 15 cm wider and 10 cm longer (perfect for tall people and those with kids). It is also available in white.

5. Julian Bowen Empress

The Empress kicks bedroom luxury up a notch with a gorgeous chrome metal bed frame with Victorian spindles, finials, and feet – perfect for glitz and glam bedrooms or traditional spaces in need of something metallic and shiny.

We adore this bed frame with pink or beige bedding, but it really comes alive with pastel shades of yellow, green and red.

6. Flintshire Oakenholt

The Oakenholt is another industrial masterpiece, but this time, it has a more minimalist aesthetic. The thin legs, bronze-effect frame, and spindled headboard maximise the feeling of space and provide an understated class.

The Oakenholt is subtle, and it works with most interior styles—particularly minimalist, Scandinavian, and Art Deco.

7. Birlea Atlas

The Atlas is a stunning black bed frame in the Victorian style. It has a gloss black frame, clamshell finials, and gold bulb detailing. The dual-tone look is perfect for eclectic spaces, and it can be coordinated with metallic light fixtures.

This bed frame has a super-hard-wearing epoxy powder-coated finish—and if you want a lighter look, you can get it in cream.

8. Milan Bed Company Platform Base

Bed frames don’t come more minimalist than the Milan Bed Company Platform base – no headboard, no legs, no fuss, just a square metal bed frame with space underneath for boxes or anything else you want to throw under.

It might look a bit plain, but it brings out the best in minimalist and industrial bedrooms by letting light travel freely underneath – perfect if you have hardwood flooring to show off.
