Sleep, alongside meals and work is a very important element of everyday life of every human. It was no different during the Middle Ages.
The basic role in furnishing the bedroom plays a comfortable bed. Among various types of medieval bedding there were rope beds. Due to elastic bindings and wooden crossbeam in the middle, which strengthens the construction, the straw mattress adapts the desired shape. The bed has decoratively sculpted legs and ornamental three leaves clover – shaped holes in the frame.
Same as other everyday equipment, bed was also a symbol of material and social status. The more decorative elements both in furniture construction and items covering it (i.e. throws, blankets, pillows, etc.) the greater the owner's wealth.

Due to the fact that our furniture is a result of craftsman's work, the measurements provided here might differ from the real ones by maximum +/- 1.5 cm.
Our medieval furniture is finished with sandpaper of 60-level grit. Therefore, in some softer spots of a piece of furniture, you may find some slight, natural wood nap which is a result of polishing. It practically disappears after impregnating the furniture with the use of natural methods such as linen oil or wax. If you plan to varnish the furniture in more contemporary way and want us to make the furniture’s surface smoother (i.e. use sandpaper of higher grit), please contact us and we will tell you the price of the option.
