How an Iron Bed is Made -
The manufacturing of wrought iron is a tedious process that involves several phases. Although this metal is relatively pure, it still requires refining, puddling, shingling and rolling. The 1/10 of 1% of impurities is oxidized allowing the slag to be removed. This is completed by stirring the metal in a molten state. Once this is complete, small white balls of iron are placed through a squeezing machine. This binds the particles while the iron is hot. The last stage is rolling and involves placing the melted iron into grooved rollers that generate flat bars. After cooling, craftsmen can soften the iron easily with white heat to bend it into bed frames and desired patterns. Although there are many steps to building wrought iron beds, it is still inexpensive and quite appealing. Modern machinery aids in the refining process that once took painstaking hours.
Wrought Iron Bed History -
The Victorian Era made the wrought iron bed popular amongst all classes of people. Original pieces were hand-crafted with tedious, laboring work by skilled iron workers. Cost was generally based upon size and fine detailing within the metalwork. Antique wrought iron beds that are over one hundred years old are often sought by collectors. Owners who have preserved and cared for these pieces know the quality in the craftsmanship, making it a fashionable heirloom. Popularity for this bed has grown due to an abundance of wrought iron. The minimum cost of products keeps the price much lower than most wooden beds. Trends over the years have changed according to design but the timelessness of an iron bed continues to grow. "Iron Beds aren't just a trend today gone tomorrow, they've captured the heart and the creative eye for many years and will continue to do the same for many generations to come." - Top interior designer quote
