A metal bed can be the focal design element in your bedroom. Choose a wrought iron filigree design to emphasize Spanish or Mediterranean style. A metal sleigh bed with the look of old steel is perfect for industrial style. Bamboo-like brass rods make and Asian style statement. Metal beds come in as many finishes as wood beds do?oiled brass, antique bronze, soft pewter, shimmery silver, brushed nickel, black iron or painted metallic finishes. Metal beds bring style and grace to a room while allowing air and light to pass through. They don?t absorb as much light or occupy as much visual space as wood beds often do, which makes them the perfect choice for a smaller room.
