Metal Design Furniture’s Bed of Kings

Napoleon Bonaparte once declared, “The bed has become a place of luxury to me. I would not exchange it for all of the thrones in the world”… And we at Metal Design Furniture couldn’t agree more!

Kings and Queens, of course, could sleep in only the very best of beds… Here are a few royal beds, occupied by some of the greatest, if ill-fated, monarchs:

Marie Antoinette’s bed – the Queen of France slept in between beautiful fabrics interwoven with flowers, ribbons and peacock feathers. But the magnificent, golden headboard – embellished with Marie’s very own initials – no doubt steals the spotlight. During the French Revolution, Marie used a hidden door by her bed to escape to the king’s chambers!

Napoleon II’s crib – only the best for the next emperor of France! The crib was given to the infant heir as a gift from Paris, contained more than 200 kilograms of precious material and were decorated with bees, which was Napoleon’s personal emblem and symbolized the industrious citizens of Paris.

Metal Design Furniture’s customers deserve nothing less – you, too, can get to sleep in a bed made for kings! Our king-sized Gala Bed in Pearl Gold, 160cm with foot end, is now on sale for £490 instead of £670 – there’s only one left, so phone us for details!

Metal Design Furniture On Christmas Light Displays

It’s almost the holiday season, and we can practically smell winter coming!

And what says Christmas more than Christmas lights? Since the start of the month, some of the most iconic London spots have switched on their magnificent displays.

The Oxford Street lights were turned on earlier this month, while Regent Street had been shut off and attracted thousands of spectators as members of ‘Take That’ switched on the lights.

This has definitely got us excited… it seems that it’s finally time to start counting backwards to Christmas Day!

And you could always create your own lights display at home – whether it’s just a few lights around your tree, a bright, shining garland at the front door to welcome the guests and get them in the holiday mood, or even a full-blown whole-house lights display to let the whole street know just how much you’re looking forward to Christmas – you simply can’t go wrong!

And now, Metal Design Furniture offers you the chance to make your home even more splendid for the holiday season! The gorgeous 180cm x 90cm wrought-iron and glass Castrum dining table, an ex-display item in perfect condition, is now on sale for £590 instead of £793 – a one-off opportunity, and just in time for Christmas Eve dinner.
