Oak has been used to make beds since the Middle Ages. It is a hard and durable timber that does not damage as easily as soft woods, and so some early oak beds have survived over the years. Because it could be locally sourced, oak was the timber of choice in Britain for many bed makers. Oak became less popular during the Georgian and Victorian periods, when other imported timbers such as mahogany were more fashionable, seeing a revival during the late 19th and early 20th century with the arrival of the Arts and Crafts movement. By the early 20th century oak had once again become the material of choice for bed manufacture. At Karma Beds we supply a wide range of antique oak beds in a range of size and styles.
