Amish Heritage Colonial Pencil Post Bed, Twin (Single) Size - SKU#0091-T
The Pencil Post Bed was thus named after it's signature array of tall slender posts. These beds were originally developed when houses were poorly heated and essentially uninsulated. The tall bed posts provided support for a fabric canopy and side hangings which protected the occupants from the frosty drafts that often swept through their bed chambers. Whether you choose to compliment it with an optional canopy and hangings or not, the pencil post bed can provide a very real piece of early American history in your home.
This Amish Heritage Colonial Pencil Post Bed features well-proportioned turned posts, topped with delicately carved Colonial finials and blocked feet. The beautifully trimmed foot rail and elegantly shaped headboard add to this bed's overall air of refinement. 100% premium American hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of the original Colonial pencil post beds.
This particularly elegant bed is constructed using mortise-and-tenon joints as well as bed-bolts for ultimate strength, stability, and durability. Add a quality mattress and, sitting or reclining, your comfort is ensured in this elegant design that has remained popular for hundreds of years. It is available in twin, full, queen, king, or California king sizes.
