Bed History: Since our specialty is beds, a few historical noted may be of interest.
Bed Hangings: A full set of hangings consisted of a tester, valance, head cloth, head and foot curtains and a base or skirt.
Mattress Sizes: Standard and special matterss sizes.
Roping a Bed: I am occasionally asked to provide information on how to rope an early bed. Since, to my knowledge, this information is not published I will explain how to rope a bed properly.
Putting It All together: Your bed will be made up of a combination of a bedstead, mattress, box spring or platform, pillows and perhaps a bed skirt or hangings. In the end everything needs to work together.
