Farmhouse style furniture is so fun to pick out, and my favorite part yet of furnishing our farmhouse has been the search for beautiful farmhouse beds. Beds are the defining feature in any bedroom, and swapping our your bed for a classic farmhouse bed is a quick way to add farmhouse charm to your room. For our three bedrooms, we settled on three very different styles of farmhouse beds: spindle, metal & wooden cannonball. (Note: this post contains affiliate links to products I love ♥ See my full disclaimer.)
Farmhouse Spindle Beds
1. Jenny Lind Bed | 2. Soraya Poster Bed | 3. American Classic Bed | 4. Santa Rosa Poster Bed | 5. River House Bed
My all time favorite type of bed is the spindle bed. They are also known as Jenny Lind beds, named after the Swedish opera singer who toured the United States in the mid-1800s. Products from clothing to tobacco to pianos were named after her as part of the marketing campaign for her cross country tour with P.T. Barnum, and spindle beds soared in popularity under her name. Still produced today, these gorgeous beds come in designs ranging from elegant to whimsical.
Metal Farmhouse Beds
1. Amaranthe Bed | 2. Wildon Metal Bed | 3. Garden Gate Bed Queen | 4. Christie Wrought Iron Bed | 5. Metal Panel Bed | 6. Warton Metal Bed
Metal farmhouse beds have such a classic look and are very easy to find these days. A metal farmhouse bed was big on my wishlist for our guest bedroom, and I’m so glad we found one! I was worried at first if metal beds were sturdy, but fear not! They are plenty sturdy!
Wooden Farmhouse Beds
1. Heritage Four Poster Bed | 2. Reeves Bed | 3. Madison Four Post Bed | 4. August Grove Panel Bed
The wooden cannonball bed in our bedroom is one of my favorite pieces in our home. My grandparents purchased it right after they were married, and it spent almost half a century in their bedroom under an antique painting of my great great grandfather. I had always admired it, but I never told them how much I loved it. When my grandpa passed away a few years ago, my grandma decided to get a smaller bed and asked if I’d like to take the old cannonball bed. It was such a surprise, and I’m honored to take care of it!
Here’s a few more photos of our farmhouse beds in our very own farmhouse!
Which type is your favorite? Do you have a farmhouse-style bed?

I love them all and if I had enough bedrooms in our house I’d have one of each! ;) Right now my husband is building our bed. I fell in love with the Pottery Barn Farmhouse bed frame and found a site with plans to build your own. I can’t wait for it to be finished (and our room painted!) so I can add more farmhouse touches. :)
I would totally love one of each too, Ashley! And that’s so awesome that your husband is building your bed!
Oh my! Meg, you have impeccable taste! What a beautiful collection of bed frames.
Thanks, Sarah!! ♥
Oh goodness, the beauty. I could talk about decorating for hours. I’ve recently hoped aboard the farm house loving bandwagon thanks to fixer upper. I’ve always loved old styled homes with modern touches. I honestly can’t decide my favorite bed out of the ones you listed. I love it all!!! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Emily! Glad you like the picks! I just wish I had more bedrooms for all of them!
I’ve always lived the Jenny Lind beds and I LOVE that color on yours — what a cute room! I’ve always wanted to live in a farmhouse but alas, I’ve a ranch in the suburbs lol. We did get an iron repro bed for our little guest room that I love. We have an old mahogany bed in our room that I got for 25.00 25 years ago!
Your beds sound beautiful! Even in the suburbs, you can add tons of charm with the right furniture. Sounds like you’re all set with your awesome finds! :)
Beautiful collection of beds! I especially liked seeing the cannonball style because my grandparents had a set of twin beds in that style. Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet
Thanks, Janet! My grandparents’ cannonball bed is very special to me too ♥
Love the collection of bed frames you’ve put together. I really like your guest bedroom and the wooden bed frame picks. Thanks for sharing on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!
Thanks for the collection. I’m fantasizing about building my dream house and am looking for beds. Brenda
Love these beds, my daughter is actually looking for a new bed and she loves this style.. I love the blue corner bed so stylish
Thanks, Maria! Our blue Jenny Lind bed is my favorite find in our house!
There are lots of fantastic options here! Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday this week – I’m pinning this to our party board :)
Thank you, Emily! And thanks for sharing! I really appreciate it!
You make it difficult to choose with so many options, but I would say white wood bed. Thanks for the inspiration!
[…] Meg is taking care of this beautiful vintage bed for her grandma (how lucky is she?) but she has shared places you can find all kinds of vintage farmhouse bed ideas. […]
Love your collection here. Each farmhouse bed has its own style but the blue single one is so adorable, is it for kids, right? It’ll be hard for me to pick one in case of choosing one to buy. Maybe a metal one is perfect for me. Thanks for your post.
they are so beautiful. i’m wondering which bed to buy for my parents but now i know what to choose. thanks for sharing!
Is your Cannonball Bed a full size or queen? I’m finding queen size in vintage to be hard to come by. I have seen extenders online to attach to fit a queen mattress set but don’t know how well they would work or how they would look. Any sources for a queen size Cannonball?
