A Perfect Finish: Elevating Your Iron Bed

A Perfect Finish: Elevating Your Iron Bed

Investing in an iron bed from Worthen Furniture has many perks, one of them being that we offer a range of unique finishes that add style and flair to any bedroom. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern look or something more traditional, your bed will not only look and feel amazing but also stand the test of time, becoming an heirloom piece for generations to come.

Iron Bed Finishes

Before making your purchase, take some time to explore all the available options, as each Worthen bed finish has its own unique qualities. Let's delve into the three categories of finishes we offer, each meticulously applied through an electrostatic powder-coating process and baked for durability:

  1. Standard Finish: This is an all-over one-color finish that provides a classic and timeless appearance.
  2. Premium Finish: With our premium finish, you can expect some hand painting or a higher quality all-over finish, such as our Gold Medal finish. For those seeking something extra special, this option is available at a reasonable additional cost, approximately $300 more than the standard finish.
  3. Premier Finish: Our premier finish is the epitome of craftsmanship and artistry. It involves our skilled artisans hand painting, texturizing, and a multi-step, multi-day, and multi-bake process, resulting in a truly exquisite and unique appearance. While this level of customization comes at a higher price point, around $600 more than the standard finish, it is an investment in a work of art.

Worthen Furniture Iron Finish Samples

For those who wish to see and feel the finishes before making a decision, we provide finish samples to ensure you get precisely what you desire. Our flat black and baroque black finishes may appear similar in images, but the subtle "sand" texture of the black baroque finish becomes apparent in person.

In addition, we take pride in offering customizable finishes to meet our customers' unique preferences. Here are a few instances where customization was requested:

  • The "black" element was removed from the Champagne finish to achieve a stunning combination of gold and silver.
  • Our Manhattan finish, which can exhibit both brown and black tones, can be adjusted based on individual preferences to lean more towards one shade or the other.
  • If you have specific color preferences, we have the ability to replicate your existing finishes or match them to the popular paint colors offered by your favorite paint companies. An excellent example of our recent custom work involved collaborating with Interior Designer Bea Gates on a dining table project, where we skillfully created a stunning multi-color black and gold finish for the table legs.

Side rails 

In addition to the bed's finish, we pay attention to every detail, even the side rails of our frames. As a standard, the side rails are powder-coated in black, but for lighter finishes, we recommend matching the rails to the bed. This attention to detail ensures a seamless and cohesive look.


Ultimately, choosing the perfect finish for your Worthen iron bed is about discovering the one that complements your style and preferences. Whether you opt for a black iron finish, a bronze finish, or an antique finish, you can be confident that your chosen option will be of the highest quality and an heirloom piece cherished for generations.

We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to assist you in customizing your dream bed—one that will undoubtedly become the centerpiece of your bedroom and a cherished part of your family's legacy!
