Leather is an incredibly versatile medium, and nowhere is this more apparent than when it comes to crafting leather beds. It is almost impossible to characterize the look of a leather bed as there is such a variety of leather bed styles and designs from which to choose. Depending on preference, leather beds can be traditional or very modern, small or compact, masculine or feminine.
Beds with a leather headboard may be the most common choice, but leather-clad footboards and side rails are also available, increasing the range of leather bed looks. Quality leather is fabulously soft and luxurious, and may be quilted, buttoned, or pulled taut for a smooth, sleek appearance. Leather can be incorporated into slim headboards or large, rolled-top frames. Leather is great on its own in a bed, but can also be mixed as an accent material to accentuate wood or metal frames.
Tanning and dyeing techniques allow leather beds to come in a variety of colours, as well, from the traditional tans, beiges, and chocolate hues, to wild shades of red, blue and other vibrant colours.
Maintaining a leather bed is fairly simple. Like other leather furniture, steps should be taken to ensure that leather beds are not exposed to direct sunlight, are dusted regularly, and are treated occasionally with a moisture-retention product. Different types of leather require different levels of care, so be sure to ask about care when purchasing a leather bed.
