NIGHTS IN IRON – THE REAL IRON BED CO.
BUILT TO LAST LIFETIMES
“Things aren’t built like they used to be.” Yes they can be! Watch us creating, still using traditional skills and craftsmanship, our own hand-forged iron beds.
Simply engineered to last. Looking great in contemporary or period homes and just perfect in re-purposed industrial buildings.
Spanning three decades and four generations, Nights in Iron is a family-run business based in rural Somerset. We’ve been making these beautiful iron beds for over 30 years, using traditional skills and techniques keeping the hand-forging heritage alive.
If you would like to see the Iron Beds for yourself and try our trusted selection of mattresses, give us a call to make an appointment and come and visit our warehouse showroom in Somerset (20 mins south of Salisbury, 20 Mins from Glastonbury).
See our Showroom page for details and links to things to do in the area and great local restaurants and pubs.
Quality & Craftsmanship
Our customers, happy to pay a little more for our Hand Forged Iron Beds than mass manufactured, rattling, tinny imitations, cherish the special difference in the way our beds look and feel to touch.
The strength and comfort of our beds is unrivalled and not to be confused with cast or wrought iron counterparts.
While shop bought beds will usually last 5 to 7 years if you’re lucky, our beds will stand the test of time. They can be dismantled and reassembled many times, and will last far longer….. longer than you!
Our showroom and workshops are here in the heart of Somerset. We have made our beds here ourselves for many years in the same way, always keeping the quality of materials and workmanship consistent. Over the past ten years we also developed the ability to manufacture component parts of exceptional quality in Portugal and India for additional supply to our workshop here. We also purchase parts for our bases from Germany and France. Our 2″ divan bed bases and mattresses are made for us in England. Powder coating and finishing of our beds is also completed here in Somerset.
Why spend more on Iron Beds?
With the average UK resident moving eight times during their lifetime, they can get through a lot of cheap beds. Most bought from High Street retailers are designed to be taken apart and rebuilt only a couple of times – part of our ‘throwaway society’.
Nights in Iron’s hand – forged Iron Beds are made in the traditional way – over engineered to achieve comfort and durability for many years. If you move house the bed will come with you and can be dismantled and rebuilt an almost endless number of times. You get what you pay for in this world, and if a High Street bed falls apart after only two moves you may end up paying more for lower quality in the long term!
Superior build quality
The most expensive beds owned by the rich and famous are often one offs and can cost many thousands of pounds. Our artisan metal bed frames being hand forged, have the same build quality, and can be viewed in our showroom in Wincanton – a ten minute drive from Bruton in rural Somerset – they have a very similar appearance to the bespoke metal beds built for those multimillionaire customers.
One of the immediate differences from the High Street you will notice is the weight of the bed. They are reassuringly heavy and are not easily pushed about, adding solidity and comfort to your bedroom.
Our beds are customisable, with a wide variety of modifications that can be made to ensure that your unique requirements can be met. Additionally, we can make bespoke modifications to your metal bed design – just get in touch to discuss what you want.
Bring some beauty into your room!
Everyone likes to have their bedroom just so – a Zen like place of rest where we forget the cares of our daily lives. The 13 designs of beds we make are of such quality that people always feel the need to touch them and when they do, find a tactile surface in reward. This is one of the many reasons why, when customers visit our showroom, that 99% of them make an order before going home – For those customers who just can’t wait, we often help them to squeeze the bed in the back of their car or secure it to the roof for them – which is the most fun!
Over the last 25 years we have found that our customers come back to us time and again to add another to their collection of the beds we make. Word of mouth has created a network of people from all over the world who have come to us having seen the beds we have made for their friends and family.

We always appreciate your feedback:
“Fantastic! I arrived home from work today to find that our new ‘Manger’ bed had arrived, and my husband had put it together on his own. He said “it was the easiest bed he had ever constructed”. Our thanks to all involved: it looks wonderful, is sturdy and the craftsmanship that made it is to be applauded. It is the bed of our dreams.” – Adele & Nick
“Thank you Nights in Iron – About fifteen years ago I came across Nights in Iron at the Ideal Home Exhibition and fell in love with their handmade Iron Beds so bought one then and there! I absolutely love my bed, and it as good now as it was when I bought it, despite having gone through five house moves! It is beautifully crafted and unique. Nights in Iron are a lovely friendly company who I would not hesitate to buy from again.” – Claire, Dorset
“I cannot recommend your company, Iron Beds, mattresses & curtain poles enough! Simply sublime! The fact that you are all so lovely to deal with made the experience perfect. Three years ago I saw your beds at the Ideal Home Exhibition and thought they were beautiful and very high quality. It’s terrific to finally be sleeping in it!”
