A sleigh bed-frame is characterized by a headboard and footboard that curl at the top of each corner. This shape is reminiscent of a sleigh and hence the name sleigh bed. Typically, sleigh bed-frames are made from carved wood with expensive models having hand carved curls. The sleigh bed frame originated in France and is available as single or double beds. Americans fell in love with this unique design and started manufacturing sleigh beds. The sleigh bed-frame usually curls outwards, so make sure your bedroom space takes into account this extra projection.
