    Post What yo think about combination: classy bed and early 19th century quilt

    I am browsing forum for some time, and found this thread, about 19th century quilts, and post by "craftybear" with link to those 19th century quilts.

    I decided to buy brass bed, and considering is it wired combination, this kind of a bed and that beautiful old fashioned quilts?

    Here are few pictures of beds that I am considering:

    i think they look just fine. i probably would not like it as much with the very shiny brass colored, though.

    It would be a terrific combo! It is your bed, so make it as you want to!

    I think ANY quilt, 19th century or modern style would look beautiful on any brass bed.

    I love the look! I have several "old" looking quilts for my big brass bed! Looks so cozy and friendly.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    To me decorative brass beds speak of the late Victorian era, about 1880-1900. A crazy quilt is particularly reminiscent of that period.

    Have fun with it!

    I'm with feline fanatic, I think any of them would work very well.

    The first bed pictured does have a bit more of a modern look, but the quilts you have pictured would certainly all look great on it. Go for it!

    I think "old meets new" is a great look! Please let us know which bed &/or quilt you get!

    I think any of the quilts would look great on any of the beds. I especially like the first bed and the middle quilt. Go for it.
