The Worthen Story

Creating enduring beauty by hand

The story of Worthen started in 1975, with two Virginia craftsmen who shared a passion for restoring antique beds. After years of working on vintage pieces, the two men noticed a concerning trend: the antique beds they encountered were of lackluster quality and offered limited designs. They set out to create their own heirloom-quality beds, founding Brass Beds of Virginia. Their mission: to create custom beds with uncompromised attention to detail, quality, and elegance.
Since then, throughout our half century history, our company’s original core values have remained. While our name has changed to Worthen to reflect our expanded offerings, we still handcraft every bed in Richmond, Virginia. And you can still sense our founders’ unwavering dedication to quality and design in every Worthen piece.
