Pencil Post Beds Pencil Post Bed
circa 1750-1780
Pencil Post Beds were made throughout New England during the second half of the 18th Century. Surprisingly, the posts have a functional origin. They were used to support fabric coverlets, which provided privacy and added warmth.

Most often the posts were never seen. Our bed is based on an 18th Century post we found in a New England attic. The carved “lamb’s tongue” decorations and the subtle taper of the chamfered posts are traditional design characteristics. Our Pencil Post Bed is one of our popular beds and is used in traditional, as well as more contemporary settings. Bed is in Tiger Maple.
Post Height is 81”.
